    Lets offer prayers and well wishes to a decent person

    Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has been admitted to Emory University Hospital for a procedure to relieve pressure on his brain, caused by bleeding due to his recent falls.A spokeswoman says the procedure is scheduled for Tuesday morning. President Carter is resting comfortably, and his wife, Rosalynn, is with him.

    Maybe not a good president, but a decent human being. The world could use a hell of a lot more decency and people like Jimmy Carter. May have been a mediocre president, but he has been one of the best ex presidents we have ever had and he has done so much for the poor and marginalized in our country and throughout the world so if you have a moment say a prayer for him and/or send some well wishes.

    A truly admirable person. Unquestionable faith, and humility and compassion.

    I'm just hoping it's not more serious like a brain tumor, which would explain the falling.

    God bless ya Jimmy.
    promote the general welfare..........

    Carter personifies personal integrity, something that is sorely missing in politics today. I certainly wish him well and will pray for his recovery. He is 95 years old. I hope when his time comes, it will happen when he's sleeping comfortably in his own bed at home.
    I've made up my mind. Don't confuse me with the facts.

    I'm the most reasonable poster here. If you don't agree, I'll be forced to have a hissy fit.

    The economy and foreign policy. Of course a lot of that was to blame on the Neocons who sought to sabotage his presidency, and mostly succeeded. Gotta love a guy who tried to stop having Hail to the Chief played when the president walked into the room.

    I would argue he inherited that economy. Google 'stagflation'.

    His characterization of Israel's treatment of the Palestinians is dead on.

    Jimmy Carter is an incredible human being and we should all wish there were millions more people like him in the world. I didn't agree with most of his policy positions as President but politics is secondary to who he is. Best wishes to President Carter in continuing to live a long and beautiful life.

    Re: Lets offer prayers and well wishes to a decent person

    The highlight of Carter's life will be defined by his post-presidency. No man has done more to contribute to the well being of humankind in the twilight of his career than Carter.

    The biggest criticism of the guy is that he was genuinely "too nice" to be a truly effective president - an office which requires some level of sociopathy IMO.

    I mean, for ****'s sake, Carter sold his peanut farm to eliminate any iota of conflict of interest entering office. Can anyone fathom any president in modern times doing something like that?

    I can't.

    Get well, Jimmy, planet earth needs you!
