Jimmy Carter: Obama the Only President So Far Not to Call Me for Advice
by Josh Feldman | 9:48 pm, March 21st, 2014

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office. A clip from Carter’s upcoming Meet the Press interview reveals that President Obama is the first president since Carter left office not to solicit the Southern Democrat’s advice.

Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W. Bush and even Ronald Reagan used to call on us to go into sensitive areas.” They all asked Carter to deal with “unsavory characters,” but Obama hasn’t reached out to Carter for similar consulting.

Carter admitted he couldn’t answer with “complete candor,” only saying that it was the result of a dispute between the administration and the Carter Center on Middle East policy, a “sensitive area in which the president didn’t want to be involved.” Carter, however, holds no ill will towards Obama, because he “understand[s ] those sensitivities” and doesn’t have a problem with Obama not actively soliciting him.

  • Your what hurts??
Since Obama is the smartest guy who ever lived, why would he need to ask an old white guy about anything??

He probably thinks Jimmah is a fugitive from the wax museum and not really alive.
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

I completely reject the statement that he doesn't care.  You know he has to be miffed that the Democrat Messiah hasn't asked his advice on anything, even though they rank as #1 and #2 in a list of worst Presidents ever.

I see this as just one more piece of evidence in a long list that Obama doesn't give a rip about anything in the Presidency other than the power and the perks.

He no more wants to get advice from others (with the exception of VJ) than he wants to fly to the moon.

(Which he, of course, cannot do because he killed NASA......  **nononono* ).
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

  • Congrats Donald Trump! 45th POTUS!
Obama talks to no one and eschews any presidential work. Just check his daily schedule. He's a lazy ass, incompetent affirmative action Pres.
Some #NeverTrumpers are like the pockets of Japanese who didn't know the war was over

Obama believes he can learn nothing from anyone, ever and thus has never learned anything, ever.

It is the reason why his speeches are cliched, redundant and self-referential, their words running on endlessly like the intellectual Mobius strip in his own head.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

His daily schedule consist of golf & planning their next vacation.  Even at that, no one wants to take advice from Jimmy Carter, much less a egotistical community organizer.

Do you remember the hissy fit that Rosalyn Carter threw when they got their "eviction notice"?
I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery.  But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes:  If you bleep with me, I'll kill you all.

Marine General James Mattis, to Iraqi tribal leaders (Note: Mattis did NOT say "BLEEP". He threw the F Bomb)

I didn't enlist in the Corps just to watch my country become a Third World Communist Shit-hole. Don't know anyone who did.
