Jimmy Carter, a pathetic legacy

During the 1990's, as I began my political maturation, I gave Jimmy Carter's legacy a lot of leeway. He seemed to be a nice man who wanted to do good in his post-Presidential years. Any leeway I was willing to give Carter has evaporated over the last 7 years due largely to his own actions. With the publication of his most recent book, I can't help but be fully and completely opposed to Carter and almost anything he does or says. His presidency was a tremendous disappointment and so too is his post-presidency. In 150 years, Carter will only be remembered for his failures and what they lead to in the following years.
