The Content of His Character: Jimmy Carter Fails Dr. King's Test

Showing the same lack of grace and dignity that marked his tenure in the White House, Jimmy Carter helped turn today's memorial service for Coretta Scott King into just another opportunity to unleash partisan shots at President Bush. Carter referenced the wiretapping of the Kings (failing to mention that it was done by those notable power hungry Republicans Jack and Bobby Kennedy) in a clear swipe at the NSA surveillance program. Descending even further into moonbattery, Carter decried the racism of Hurricane Katrina for harming the African-American community disproportionately. The fact that this claim is untrue (and the further fact that it was Mayor Ray "Busses" Nagin who harmed that community more than anyone else) did not seem to bother the peanut farmer.

Dr. King once famously declared that he wanted his children to be judged by the content of their character rather than by the color of their skin. Regardless of his skin color, Jimmy Carter has no character, and he displayed it (again) today for all the world to see. He is a disgrace to the office he once held. He is a shameless opportunist who has forfeited any claim on our respect.

I feel sorry for the King family. Mrs. King was a national figure, but she was also a mother, a grandmother, a sister, an aunt...and her family deserved the dignity of a service devoted to honoring her life and contributions. Instead it was taken over by cheap shots and politcal posturing. That's really too bad.

It just goes to show how desperate the left is. They no longer hold anything sacred except for their own agenda.

she was never a grandmother, as there are no King granbabies, and all children remain without spouses.

i think she whould have been publically commended for holding a family together, and raising her babies proper while her husband politiced and philandered.
but that would have been seen as insulting to the clintons. but it would at least have been true.
