He's likely right about the Tea Party, but comparing himself to them is silly.

If Jimmy thinks that, Dems will be fine.

He's rarely right.

because..he's an honest good human being. I can see how you might think he is mistaken about politics..

We need more presidents like JC.

His assertions might be honest and reflective........but they capture the mood of the American people......so those in power....."the Democrats" .....are about to be kicked in the ass this November......

i am profoundly disappointed in President Carter. he has worked very hard to defeat dems and i think it is time for him to go back to GA. his criticism of Ted Kennedy could have and should have come before Kennedys death-not now. i, for one, would have considered you much more of a man if you dared to confront Kennedy face to face. dems always lose because people like carter cannot hold his tongue until after the election. of course he wouldnt get the press he is getting now. so there you have his motive and it is indeed sleazy and opportunistic......

Former Pres. Carter is the antithesis of "sleazy and opportunistic". He WAS outspoken about Sen. Kennedy at the time and they had a few "face to face confrontations" over healthcare, among other things.
What is YOUR motive for wanting to impugn a man of proven integrity.

Former President Jimmy Carter said Monday he sees parallels between today's tea party and his own campaign for the White House in 1976. But he doesn't think the movement will be much of a factor beyond this fall's elections.

The Georgia Democrat told The Associated Press he rode a wave of voter discontent to the presidency on the heels of the Vietnam War and the Watergate scandal that felled President Richard Nixon, much like tea party conservatives are now earning support by voicing anger at the nation's economic woes.

"I was a candidate that was in some ways like the tea party candidate," Carter said in an interview. "I was a complete outsider. I capitalized legitimately on the dissatisfaction that was permeating our society."

I am a Democrat, who thinks Jimmy Carter one of the worst Presidents in history. But, unfortunately, I think he is right on target with this prediction. The Democrats have demonized the tea party followers -- many of whom are worried only about out of control spending and mounting deficits, as are many Democrats -- to such an extent, that we have driven them into the waiting arms of the Republican party. Like Carter, I fear we will regret this on election night!

I appreciate the honesty. We probably don't agree on much, but am happy to say I am now a fan.

I feel his assertions are very honest and reflective. He seems to taking on responsibility instead of deflecting it. Most Presidents, Bush comes to mind will only make excuses and never take responsibility.
03:42 PM on 09/20/2010
He is a bitter man,the worst president ever.Who needs his political insights now when even he admits to being "uncomfortable"being a political leader when he could have been relevant.Loser.

Well he may not have been a great politician. He's ethical. Did not and would not go to war over hostage crisis. Believed in clean energy. Was not wasteful. He was progressive and did not toe the line. Reagan on the other hand ripped down solar panels that Carter had on the white house, boasting that America ought to have all the energy it wants! And Reagan did spin the hostage crisis, by taking the credit for their safe return. A loser though? I don't think so...he's done more with his post -presidential life than any other president. Worst president, naw, that was George Bush. Fascinating 60 min interview last night. You ought to watch it. You might learn something!

...' Well he may not have been a great politician. He's ethical...' --- sort of like the opposite of Obama.

I'd like to hear what President Carter thinks of the solar panels, that graced the White House while he was President, and subsequently taken off the White House by Ronald Reagen, moved to Boston, and have, over the years, made a phenomenal difference in the energy of the building where they were installed. Had we listened to President Carter about energy decades ago maybe we wouldn't be where we are now.

The goal is to install solar panels and keep them there. Not to move them. And of course they work on a large scale. Just like wind power and levees too. But unlike other countries we dig our heels in and don't embrace new energy technology. Carter tried to do this stuff 40 years ago! Just think where we'd be now! Instead of backards we'd be competitive!

Better one building at a time than nothing at all.

While solar energy doesn't have cost savings now, remember that coal, oil and natural gas have been heavily subsidized in your country for decades. Give it a few more years, when energy prices have risen as high as in Europe and the UK, and you'll wish you hadn't been sneering.
