Responding to an audience question at a town hall at his presidential center in Atlanta, Carter said Tuesday that (U.S. Rep. Joe)Wilson's outburst was also rooted in fears of a black president.
"I think it's based on racism," Carter said. "There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president."
Why can't someone criticize our POTUS without being called a racist? I just don't get it. Granted, Wilson was out of line, but I think Former POTUS Carter has taken "out of line" to a new level.
Carter, a Democrat, said Joe Wilson's outburst was a part of a disturbing trend directed at the president that has included demonstrators equating Obama to Nazi leaders.
No, the comparisons come from Pres Obama's past, his published and voiced system of beliefs and his efforts to nationalize the banking, auto and healthcare industries.
Let's put the race card away shall we? We have enough to complain about and disagree over without it.
Ignorance knows no race.
I'm just sayin'.
