Mark Levin: “Jimmy Carter is a blowhard”

September 17, 2009


Last night, Sean Hannity continued to report on the increasingly mendacious former President Jimmy Carter‘s slanderous assertion that Americans who disagree with Barack Obama‘s policies are “racists.”

Hannity also ran a video clip of author, professor and “gangsta rap” expert Michael Eric Dyson, who ascribed any trepidations about Obama’s policies to “fear of a black planet and fear of a black man.”

Calling Dyson’s remarks “unbelievable,” Hannity then invited fellow talk radio host Mark Levin to comment on the growing controversy.

Levin deadpanned, “Jimmy Carter is a blowhard who has taken some very irresponsible positions (…) His positions on Jews in Israel are contemptible.”

Asked about the widespread perception that conservatives are somehow “anti-poor” or “anti-black,” Levin reminded viewers that, as President of the Landmark Legal Foundation, he and his team had spent years “litigating against the ACLU to liberate poor children from inner-city schools” through school voucher programs.

“And who stands in our way?” Levin asked. “The Democrat Party. And Barack Obama, who sends his kids to private school. So who’s on the right side of race in this country?”

Incidentally, Hannity noted that Mark Levin’s book Liberty & Tyranny passed a milestone yesterday (although you’d never know it if you relied on the “mainstream media” for your news): the hardcover edition has now officially sold one million copies.

That’s considerably more than Michael Eric Dyson’s Is Bill Cosby Right?: Or Has the Black Middle Class Lost its Mind? For that matter, it’s considerably more than the Jimmy Carter book that was just praised by none other than that noted literary critic, Osama bin Laden.

    An enigma amongst the recent slew of Democratic president each leaving a pile along the way.

    The term “blowhard” seems a little strong. I think “Clueless twit” would be more accurate.

    Name calling? Absolutely. Just calling it as I see it.

    Jimmy Carter is just another in the Dems long list of come from nowhere candidates who somehow are elevated to the office of President of the USA. How can this happen? I have watched first the peanut farmer, starting with an article in the WSJ about this yet-unknown entity, then Billy Clinton who came from the depths of Arkansas politics, and next — last but certainly not least! our own Barak Obama! Truth seems stranger than fiction here…in all these cases. I think there was more than meets the eye in their sudden rocketing popularity, i.e., media thrust, etc.

    Mr. Carter has always been deranged in my book. I am really glad more people are not treating him as an authority (which the office of Pres would lend). He has always been out to lunch, dinner, and the next morning’s breakfast in my book.

    Bill Clinton was our first ‘Black’ President, and
    Jimmy Carter was our first ‘Woman’ President.

    Jimmeh only got into politics because Miss Lillian couldn’t trust him with the gas station. And considering what happened to gas during his Administration, she was right.

    Thanks for the Hannity interview. Your spot on about Carter.

    It is irrelevant is the colour of a man’s skin when one looks at character. Whether he be white or black, whenever a man lies, prefabricates, swerves from proven good ethics or acts contrary to decently accepted behaviour he shows himself to be the man he is. The colour of his skin does not make the man. His words and actions gush from a spring that is either good or bad.

    Jimmy Carter accusing others of racism? That’s a joke! Back when he was governor of Georgia, he boasted about how proud he was to have Lester (axehandle) Maddox as his lieutenant governor. He promised Alabama governor George Wallace an invitation to the White House when he became President, which — surprise! — he later renegged on. Yeah, ol’ Jimmeh was no better than he had to be back in the good ol’ days before he became a moralistic scold and a ‘national hemorhhoid’.

    I do believe that as a benefit of an ex-POTUS, that the administration of his anti-idiot pill should be taken seriously, and I call upon a full congressional investigation into who slipped up.
