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

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.

He is also the longest surviving ex-president in history.
It shows.

  1. I can’t go as far as to say I miss Carter but he does look somewhat manly compared to the princess that is now flitting through the halls of the White House.

     
  2. Hamas-loving Jimmy has become delusional in his dotage. But then, maybe he was delusional all along. That “killer rabbit” that he battled with his paddle certainly knew it.
    .

     
  3. Wow! What a man, he beat back the big bad rabbit ( probably a beaver) with his paddle. LOL!! Scary isn’t it that this “man” used to be in charge of this country?

     
    • Even worse, according to the Secret Service, Carter once tried to kill a small stray dog with a bow saw because the terrier ate some food his wife had put out for their cat in their home in Plains, GA. The dog managed to dodge Carter’s attack, but Carter then insisted that Secret Service agents take the dog away. The agents instead gave the orphan dog to the press corps.

      • Carter is unhinged, no doubt. He hates animals and Jewish people. What a waste of taxpayer dollars protecting that sorry excuse for a human being. Thanks for the link to Carter’s war on the terrier, I never thought I could dislike Carter more than I already did but I was wrong.

         
  4. Isn’t it just quaint . . we’ve been paying “retirement wages” to this fool for longer than any other ex-president! He was a know nothin’ — do nothin’ kind of guy, yet he remains on earth to benefit us with his “wisdom.” Sometimes things just aren’t fair.

     
  5. He would never had made the call for military action. NEVER.

     
  6. “I could’ve been re-elected if I’d …. shown that I was strong and resolute and, um, manly and so forth”….
    The Peanut King just doesn’t get it — he would have had to ACT strong, resolute, and manly, but Ronald Reagan WAS strong, resolute, and manly, to the very core of his character. The difference is profound.
    But at least Jimmy might have succeeded in pulling off the act; the Imposter couldn’t act strong, resolute, or manly if he spent a decade at Julliard.

     
  7. ——“The Peanut King just doesn’t get it — he would have had to ACT strong, resolute, and manly, but Ronald Reagan WAS strong, resolute, and manly, to the very core of his character. The difference is profound.”——-
    j.case—— Hats off to you. I am in awe of this precise definition by comparison.

     
    • “j.case—— Hats off to you. I am in awe of this precise definition by comparison.”
      Thank you, you’re very kind to say that.

       
  8. Must be remembering his response to Amy when she found a condom packet in one of the bedrooms the Ford brothers used while at the White House. “I’ll let Rosalind handle it”. True leadership from a father.
