what are the odds president carter read mr mueller's report?
What do you think they are?

Mr Carter is a very intellectual man. Not so great as an executive but smart, raised to hard work, and BITD considered reading a couple thousand pages of briefing as preparation for the day. I'm sure he's slowed down a lot, but I'd be very surprised if he had not read it fully.

C Corps have been berry berry good to me (and are likely to be even more better) but they have no place in the body politic.

Treat guns like cars.

Voting and voting rights should be federalized.

Get rid of the Electoral College.

Small states should get relegated.
You can't treat guns like cars.The 2nd explicitly prohibits the Govt from interfering with  gun rights.

Carter was a fine executive and a finer man. It's just that people wanted an entertainer. So they hired an entertainer who told them that the era of big government is over and proceeded to take the United States from being the greatest creditor nation in history to the greatest debtor nation in history.

Fuck Reagan.

The conflicted turkey forgot the word "amendment" that's what it was- an amendment.

Think you might be ready for a 3rd,  now that the NRA is just another political arm of the fricking Russian government. 

One look at Putin yesterday and another closed door meet with donnie simply  confirms  for me it's a government actively interfering with American politics and my guess is Pee pee tapes are just the beginning of the pile of shit Donnies offered him on a plate,  while thinking with his dick.

probably.

after watching the show again (I should have read the article), the "investigation" he's referencing is one that would determine the effect russian interference had on the voter outcome - separate from the mueller led probe.  not sure how that investigation would work and prove his opinion.

i'll always remember president carter for motivating me to work as hard as I could to pay off the 21% college loans I had.

I remember him for having the bad judgement to pick a Secretary of State who was such a devoted pacifist that he could not abide the use of force, ever, in support of US interests. He did have the moral character to resign instead of playing manipulative games behind the scene, however. Also, the Secret Service apparently got Carter terrified of assassination attempts. I was kinda surprised he even wanted to run for reelection.

Well, Carter was NOT a "fine executive." Of course, he wasn't really trained for that; but he didn't have the judgement nor the depth of understanding of human nature. It's to his credit that he consistently thinks the best of people but this left him unable to deal with snakes in the grass. He did not see the point in trying to persuade people (of course, he was not a politician or a salesman), just making decisions and decreeing that "this is the best way" does not work for large groups of people. Many of his decisions were the right ones in historical perspective IMHO but they all failed because he did not build any concensus.

Of course, not being a politician, he did nothing to build the Democratic Party's organization up. This is a common failing among Democrat Presidents, and one point that I feel the truly anti-big-government of the "conservatives" should appreciate. But generally they don't

Jimmy Carter is a fine man, I am proud of him as an American.  But in the end, the ability of an executive must be judged by the results.

That is one of your most idiotic statements, ever.

The supremes have found that the 2nd is an individual right. The Supremes have also ruled that individual rights can be regulated. The simple fact is that firearms are regulated already. The debate is, what more, if anything, should be done to help staunch the flow of blood?
