Jimmy Carter Pushes ‘Age Limit’ for Presidency in Apparent Reference to Biden, Sanders

Epoch Times: Former President Jimmy Carter said that he hopes “there’s an age limit” for the presidency—an apparent reference to former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

Both candidates would be 80 years old by the end of their first term if they were elected president.

The top four 2020 candidates are all septuagenarians.

Sanders is 78, Biden is 76, President Donald Trump is 73, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is 70.

Carter, now 95, said on Sept. 17 that he didn’t think he could perform the duties of the presidency if he were 80.

“If I were just 80 years old, if I was 15 years younger, I don’t believe I could undertake the duties I experienced when I was president,” he told the crowd after being asked whether he would consider running for the Democratic nomination. read more

  1. In those days we were sick of the war and 11 Star Admiral Carter promised to take us in a different direction. We had no idea how unprepared Jimmuh and his co-president, Rosalyn, were to take over the helm. Even Bill Clinton made Jimmuh look not so bad. It was not until we were deluded into thinking the seditious gay Kenyan commie was a sure winner, that we realized Jimmuh wasn’t so bad after all.

  2. Jimmy makes some sense while talking about the age of candidates but then endorses Bernie Sanders. That contradiction must be lost on the old codger.
    The only thing I give him credit for is hating the Clintons.

  3. …well, since we’ve ignored the Constitutional requirement for a President to be a natural born citizen (or ANY sort of citizen) as long as the candidate is visibly darker skinned in the past, I don’t have a lot of hope for enforcement, but it’s a good thought and Carter doesn’t have many of those, so this is a “stopped clock” moment for him…although I suspect that he, like ALL Democrats, would set the age bar just below whatever age President Trump is when it’s passed, which is probably the REAL intention here…

  4. Jimmy couldn’t perform the duties of President no matter his age – his contempt for our Constitution was enough to disable him.
    AND – he’s a fucking LIAR – which should preclude him from office.

    izlamo delenda est …

  5. Carter has always had the persona of a nice guy that he sold to the public. But any deeper recollection of him by those that were around during his tenure knows he was a grouchy prick just like Bernie Sanders.

    “The last guy failed miserably and he was only in his 50s. Age can be a factor, but not always.”

    …he didn’t fail, the damage was planned and intentional.

    …it was never his pupose to do anything but tear America down.

    And he did a pretty good job fulfilling it.

  7. …Carter is also bitter that HE tried to do everything Barry did 30 years earlier, but he lacked the protective coloration to get away with it…

  8. Carter could not perform the duties of the presidency when he was president. He was the catalyst for Iran being what it is today.
    Both he and Obama were two of the biggest mistakes this nation has ever made regarding leadership. Both of them made radical Islam more powerful and more of a global problem. Neither of them left office on a positive note.

    I agree with you on his purpose, also agree about what was planned and intended, but he was still a failure by all measures because America is still here and becoming great again.

  10. “…after being asked whether he would consider running for the Democratic nomination…”

    If the Dems have people actually asking for Carter in 2020, they are in worse shape than we knew. What the hell, Jimmah, go find Fritz, get the old team back together.

  11. Senile Jimmah could run for President, B.J. Clinton could run for Vice-president and Obama could fetch them both coffee, while Sir Hillary bakes them cookies! There, covered all bases!

    “@Supernightshade

    …you do have a point, so FAR it is not a complete success, but the seeds are sown, the schools have corrupted our children, feminized the boys, made the girls angry and mistrustful while filling them with the idea that it’s OK to kill any inconvenient infant they may gestate, set race against race and set Islam against us all even as they have elevated perversion to a point where there are legal and financial consequences, even for churches, if they speak against it, even as illegals have been strategically sown and are STILL being strategically sown to corrupt our voting process, while the brainwashed masses incubated in the cities spill from the Blue states into the Red ones like a cancer metastasizing into healthy tissue, bringing their politics with them…no, not sure you can say “Obama” failed on that score, maybe it wasn’t on his timeline, but they’ve done some severe damage that may well prove fatal yet…

    “What the hell, Jimmah, go find Fritz, get the old team back together.”

    …one of my favorite bumper-sticker sayings from that era:
    “GRITZ AND FRITZ GIVE ME THE SHITZ”.

  14. At a minimum
    there should be an age limit, or a limited number of years,
    for Secret Service protection paid by the taxpayers.

  15. Thank you Claudia, I needed that. Hard to not smile at jump roping puppies, nicht wahr?

    Sorry about that, I’m in a mood today but I don’t mean to bring others down. I know God’s got this, but I do not have His patience, and all this gets wearying sometimes…that’s one reason I come here, for a reminde r that the whole WORLD isn’t crazy yet, and to get lifted up by others who haven’t surrendered to Satan yet, and you’re one of the best lifter-uppers.

    So thank you again and God bless,

  16. …that’s also why I throw in “dad” jokes like the bumper sticker above, try to lighten it up a bit, but sometimes the structure of the joke can be a bit blue, so sorry for THAT too, although in THIS case it was an ACTUAL bumper sticker, I’m just quoting…

  17. SNS, I know what you mean about “being in a mood”. That was me yesterday about the Trudeau blackface thing. Was fed up with the double standard and wanted to push the “if the left creates rules for the right, they can be held to the same rules”.

    I got over it after I screamed a bit. 🙂
