Democrat Michelle Nunn has high hopes of becoming Georgia’s next U.S. Senator, and is deservedly proud to call upon her family name in support of that goal. Her Daddy, Sam, was, for the most part, a man who represented the values of Georgia’s citizens.
Although I am a life-long Republican, I can honestly say that I had few quibbles with the senator’s voting record while he was in Congress. In fact, I met with him in an fruitless effort to convince him that he should switch parties and join the GOP, since his political and philosophical bents were vastly more in tune with ours than they were with the Democrats’. However, Sen. Nunn was not burdened with the onerous weight of Obama, a weight which I doubt even he could now overcome.
Democrat State Sen. Jason Carter, who is seeking the governor’s office, is in the even more unfortunate position of having to defend not only his membership in Obama’s party, but also the sorry legacy of his grandfather, former Georgia Gov. Jimmy Carter, who until Obama came along, was generally regarded as the U.S.’s worst president ever, a richly-deserved reputation. Not only was Carter an ineffectual, ineffective and bumbling nincompoop both as governor AND as president, he has continued to embarrass the U.S. by going off on unauthorized pursuits of his own version of “foreign policy” which, unsurprisingly, has proven to be worse than Obama’s, if that is even possible.
Ms. Nunn and Mr. Carter, save your time, energy and money. If, however, you choose to ignore this sage advice, don’t let anyone know you both belong to the party of Obama, and Mr. Carter, if it’s too late to change your last name, for heaven’s sake don’t publicize the fact that you are Jimmy the Grin’s grandson!
