Jimmy Carter: America is Ready for a Gay President


Jimmy Carter says in the Big Think video above that America is ready for a female President, a black President, and yes — a gay President also (though we may have already had one in James Buchanan).
Thanks to President Carter for continuing to open doors that are the right ones to open.

    United States is a privately owned Country. I can be careless who they pick as our President, but I am afraid that a Gay President will get the Job Done.
    Those people are so emotional, and you won’t know that they are thinking when there’s a serious decision to make.
    By the way, we already have alot of gay people in the Obama Administration, and I am not going to name any.
    Hope my thought clarify the idea for BIG THINK….

    But when will America be ready for a bisexual transgender paraplegic Jewish Eskimo president?

    Obama appointed an anti-gay Marine Corps Commandant — what does that tell you?
    Top Marine says repeal of gay ban could add casualties
    December 15, 2010
    The Marine Corps’ top general suggested Tuesday that allowing gays to serve openly in the military could result in more casualties because their presence on the battlefield would pose “a distraction.”
    “When your life hangs on the line,” said Gen. James F. Amos, the commandant of the Marine Corps, “you don’t want anything distracting . . . . Mistakes and inattention or distractions cost Marines’ lives.”

    I know that I am ready for an effective, honest president who loves
    the country more than the job.
    Carter is remarkably overexposed for an octogenarian failed
    president. I wish he would just write books to assert his point of
    view and partially restore his luster. It worked for Nixon.
