He is such a genuine and kind person. A wonderful president.
Too bad Reagan won, our world would be so different if he had.

Jimmy Carter ... you are loved and respected ... history will be kind to you.


There! That's better! I really see no reason to mention Trump in an effort to praise Carter by comparison. And there's no reason to mention Carter in an effort to ridicule Trump. I think it detracts from the message.

I think it's offensive to praise Jimmy Carter by comparing him to Trump, and vice-versa. The two names should never be in the same post, much less the same paragraph or sentence. Jimmy Carter deserves better than that. --- He deserves praise for who he IS and what he's ACCOMPLISHED (not for who he "isn't" and for what he "hasn't done".)

We learned (through his example) about decency, honesty, compassion and integrity.

Even if he would not become Governor, President, and a renowned humanitarian he should be remembered for this act of courage. Carter absorbed 1000x times the radiation allowed today. A true American hero.

I was in 4th grade when he was elected, at that age when concepts like a President were beginning to dawn on me. So of course, given that and his life's achievements, he's become an inherent, fundamental standard of who I think has earned the office, and the direction their ethical compasses should point towards.

I'll never have reason to place Pres. Carter and that other guy in the same thought, let alone in a sentence, unless to draw what I think is the most greatest contrast between two modern presidents: a man of noble thought and deed, and a degenerate, willfully-flawed piece of filth.

I hope he has been aware enough to see all the good work Joe and Kamala are doing. I think he would be proud and also comforted.

very interesting story. For ex. ... how many people know he was a submariner assigned to Schenectady, N.Y., where he took graduate work at Union College in reactor technology and nuclear physics, and served as senior officer of the pre-commissioning crew of the Seawolf, the second nuclear submarine. ? Fascinating, the trajectories of lives

Do you remember this? .😂😂

https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/09/politics/trump-nobel-prize/index.html

President Donald Trump told reporters Wednesday that while “everyone thinks” he deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for his involvement in the warming of relations with North Korea, the only prize he wants is a victory for the world.

Of course he never got one
