After I woke up this morning, I found an article on Newmax.com about the Ronald Kessler book "In the President's Secret Service: Behind the Scenes With Agents in the Line of Fire and the Presidents They Protect." Click here to read the article.
It describes what a jerk President Jimmy Carter was/is. I had the opportunity to meet Carter 20 years ago and of course, I went. He was doing a book signing in Houston and My Lovely Bride and I went to get books signed. After all, he was a President of the United States and autographed copies of his books would be nice additions to our library. In addition, autographed books by a President would command a nice price if we ever decided to sell them.
I had always had my doubts about Carter. My impression was, as still is, that he was a phony. When he did the Playboy interview in 1976, he made a statement of which I will use a my quote for this post. Said quote just reinforces the fact that liberal democrats are a bunch of crazy, self absorbed lunatics.
I am going to get Kessler's book today. It will make a nice read before I go back to school.
"Because I'm just human and I'm tempted and Christ set some almost impossible standards for us. The Bible says, "Thou shalt not commit adultery." Christ said, I tell you that anyone who looks on a woman with lust has in his heart already committed adultery. I've looked on a lot of women with lust. I've committed adultery in my heart many times.... This is something that God recognizes, that I will do and have done, and God forgives me for it. But that doesn't mean that I condemn someone who not only looks on a woman with lust but who leaves his wife and shacks up with somebody out of wedlock. Christ says, don't consider yourself better than someone else because one guy screws a whole bunch of women while the other guy is loyal to his wife. The guy who's loyal to his wife ought not to be condescending or proud because of the relative degree of sinfulness." - Jimmy Carter.
