Former Presidentsurfaces only now with fiery tongue against President Obama: A commentaty
Anchor for Allvoices
The surfacing of former President Jimmy Carter with fiery tongue against Presidentat a time when the campaign is almost over is very surprising. He came with a package of smoldering fire of criticisms at a point when there is almost no time. Carter’s hot package consists of Drones attacks, Failure to Guantanamo Bay as Promised, Homeland Security Issues and Obama’s Re-election. These are synthesized as Brian O’Connor puts it “Carter Accuses Obama of Human Rights Violations.” “Jimmy Carter couches this as criticism of the nation, but it‘s really shot after shot at President Obama’s policies,” quoted from O’Connor.
It does not suggest constructive agenda to help bring about “Change America Needs” but criticisms to undermine the re-electionability of the incumbent president.
If President Carter’s agenda is to help achieve the Change Americans need, he should have come earlier with his fiery tongue in order for the Obama Administration to make amends on its directions as it deems it necessary in response to his observations if not constructive criticisms.
Obviously, Carter’s articulation during the remaining few months of the campaign on such areas of concern where the U.S is committing more blunders under Obama’s watch is viewed mainly as attack on his re-election candidacy.
The after effects of Carter’s blazing tongue lashing against Obama are virally circulating and spreading throughout the other side of the political fence. Become objects of feast for more vigorous and greater GOP attacks. The criticisms are rated platinum because they came from a former president and a Democrat like Obama. Definitely, Carter is an “attacker” instead of a supporter and defender of incumbent president.
What is President Carter really saying to President Obama in view of Human Rights Violations of his administration? Carter wants Obama to return his Nobel Peace Award Medal.
What is the overall message of President Carter to American voters with all his criticisms against President Obama in the light of November 06, 2012? Carter says, Do not vote for Obama!!
