Republican presidential candidates Chris Christie and Ted Cruz continued their mindless assault on former President Jimmy Carter to appease their respective voter base, reported Talking Points Memo.
Christie said Carter was a “weak” president and that Obama “makes Jimmy Carter look strong.” Cruz continued with his comparison of the Obama and Carter administrations. Each have the “same failed domestic policies, same misery, stagnation and malaise, same feckless and naive foreign policy,” said Cruz.
These two men couldn’t be more off the mark. Carter has more in his life than either of these two Republican schlubs. Carter’s philanthropic work alone overshadows anything Cruz and Christie have ever done in their greedy, tepid lives.
Cruz sent a “nice” tweet about Carter, maybe an attempt to soften his attacks.
Our thoughts and prayers are with President Jimmy Carter: http://t.co/zAAvkOht3S
