President Jimmy Carter, to Democrats in Chicago, Oct. 6, 1980:
“You’ll have to determine whether or not America will be unified or if I lose the election—whether America will be separated, black from white, Jew from Christian North from South, or rural from urban .”
Gov. Ronald Reagan, responding in TV interview in Philadelphia, Oct. 7, 1980:
“I can’t be angry. I’m saddened. I’m not asking an apology from him, but I think he ought to apologize to the country. I think he’s a badly misinformed and prejudiced man. He’s reaching a point of hysteria that’s hard to understand.”
Thus ended the Carter presidency, good riddance.
Now Mitt Romney has a great opportunity to drop the same bomb on the now desperate ("aggressive," haahaaa) Obama. Just wait for Obama to go awaaaayyy out on the limb. Which you know he'll do.
Steady, Mitt, steady. Ready...Aim...
