I met former President Carter about 30 years ago on a Habitat for Humanity build. What a wonderful man! He was too good of a person for the job of President.

I now view him as the peoples president…I donated my time to habitat because of his example.

He tried to be honest. See where that got him in politics.

He might not have been the greatest POTUS, but I can't think of any other president that equalled his standard of humanity and dignity.

He was the greatest person to be in the Oval Office of any modern presidents.

Completely agree with this. A really good honest man. An actual role model.

JC was smart as hell too, nuclear engineer under admiral Rickover, when he walked onto the scene at three mile island he was instantly the most qualified person in the room.

A good and decent man, in the fullest meaning of the words

imo he ought to be canonized as Saint Carter, the Patron Saint of Philanthropy when he passes (though I know he’d be too humble to accept it, were he alive when it was debated)

God bless that man and his family

Not the best president but an awesome person!
