Opening Arguments

Bragger in chief

From here on, I will feel less guilty about the possibility of overestimating myself:

Jimmy Cartesure knows how to make himself unpopular among his peers.

Mr. Carter is a member of a most exclusive group: living ex-presidents of the United States, of whom the country currently has only four. But in an interview with Brian Williams of NBC, Mr. Carter said that he feels “superior” to the others.

“I feel that my role as a former president is probably superior to that of other presidents,” he told Mr. Williams. “Primarily because of the activism and the injection of working at the Carter Center, and in international affairs, and to some degree, domestic affairs, on energy conservation, on environment, and things of that kind.”

I don't like him any better as an ex-president than I did as a president, but I have to admit I feel a little safer, or at least I did until President Obama came on the scene, so it that sense I guess Carter is right that he is a "superior ex-president."

Wow. Pretty arrogant for a born-again.
