Jimmy Carter says he would have defeated Reagan had he been more ‘manly’

By Paul Bedard | October 1, 2014 | 10:58 am

Via  washingtonexaminer.com:

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran.

Interviewed by the show “CNBC Meets,” Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

“I could’ve been re-elected if I’d taken military action against Iran, shown that I was strong and resolute and, um, manly and so forth,” said the former president, who has established himself as a world human rights leader.

“I could have wiped Iran off the map with the weapons that we had, but in the process a lot of innocent people would have been killed, probably including the hostages and so I stood up against all that all that advice, and then eventually my prayers were answered and every hostage came home safe and free. And so I think I made the right decision in retrospect, but it was not easy at the time,” he said, according to a transcript provided to Secrets.

Interviewed with his wife, Carter said he also had to ignore Rosalynn’s pleadings to “do something.”

In the end, she said that she was proud of her husband. “Peace is very difficult. War is popular in our country,” said Mrs. Carter.

O's UN chair

The pic above was taken of the POS at the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 24, 2014, where he gave a speech in which he actually compared the ongoing Islamic State’s violence in the Middle East with the racial riots in Ferguson, Missouri. This was the chair the UN had him sit in.

Dog thinks clear glass door is closed

So cute!

Make sure you watch this very short 1-minute video until the end.

This dog must have learned to be extra cautious after having run into the door when it was closed.

If You Like Your Dr. You Can Keep Your Dr…..Not!

Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same
complaint. Both have trouble walking and appear to require hip surgery.
The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day
and has a time booked for surgery the following week.
The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an
appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray,
which isn’t reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery
scheduled for 6 months from then, pending the review boards decision on
his age and remaining value to society.
Why the different treatment for the two patients?
The FIRST is a Golden Retriever taken to a vet.
The SECOND is a Senior Citizen on Obama care…
In November if there is no change in government we’ll all have to find a
good vet!

Rocky Mountain High: Homeless flock to Colorado for pot

Obama smoking pot

The law of unintended consequences strikes again.

Jace Larson reports for Click2Houston, Sept. 22, 2014, that Colorado is seeing a significant increase in the number of homeless people arriving from Texas and the head of two homeless shelters said a big reason for the increase is homeless people wanting to smoke pot.

“It wasn’t the only reason but it was one of the main factors,” Runa Renee Townsend, a homeless woman from Fort Worth, said of her reason for moving to Colorado.

At the Salvation Army’s overnight shelter, they have seen their numbers nearly double. The shelter had to use an old storage room to house the extra people. “We were averaging 190 people a night. Now we are averaging 345 people a night,” said Murray Flagg, the Salvation Army Intermountain Divisional secretary for social services. “We find about one in four people have come for some marijuana related issue.

Colorado made recreational marijuana legal under state law at the beginning of the year. Medical marijuana, which requires a doctor’s prescription, has been legal for years. Both types of marijuana are still illegal under federal law, but the federal government has taken a mostly hands-off approach to prosecuting people who possess only a small amount of marijuana and who do not traffic it while committing other crimes.

Craig Howard, who used to live in Lubbock, went to Denver. He said he meets homeless Texans every day who went to Colorado to smoke marijuana, “There are a lot of people here from Texas.”

Tom Luehrs, executive director of the St. Francis Center day shelter in Denver, said he was surprised by the increase in homeless from Texas coming to Colorado, “At least 10 percent of our new out-of-state population is coming from Texas. People tell us is that they think they can get a job because marijuana is legal here.”

Homeless people often have jobs that pay minimum wage. Some of them work as day laborers making about $38 a day. They earn enough for spending money but not enough to pay rent.

Meanwhile, Colorado’s sales tax revenue has mushroomed from the sale of recreational marijuana which is taxed at more than 20%. The state received more than $3 million in sales tax in just one month this year.
