the only difference was he was running against Carter who most of us could not stand.
Which is weird, because he is a devoutly Christian, veteran, farmer, who came from very little and rose to the highest office in the land. He’s the conservative dream. I’ve always been deeply amused by the disdain for him.
Check out the Curtis Wilkie book, Dixie: a Personal Odyssey Through Events that Shaped the Modern South, where he points to Carter evicting a black sharecropper family from the property in 76.
I consider it a business deal but using your level of measuring items you had better pull Carter down off that mountain.
FYI: Wilkie is fairly liberal.
