during a recent "60 Minutes" interview, [former US president 1976-80, Jimmy Carter] Carter blamed the late senator Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) for derailing universal health care 30 years ago. "It was his fault. Ted Kennedy killed the bill," he said.
Carter is scheduled to appear Wednesday night at George Washington University's Lisner Auditorium for a book signing and a talk before a sold-out crowd of 1,400. Late Tuesday afternoon, his book publicist confirmed that he will be there, according to Christine Cimino, a spokeswoman for the Smithsonian Associates, which is producing the event.
Carter is also expected to sign books as scheduled[cancelled!] at Politics and Prose in the District. His last signing, in 2003, drew about 750 people, said Mike Giarratano, who handles the store's author events.--
Obama spoke at DAR Constitution Hall west of the Ellipse. His(or Carter's?!) motorcade locked down that same street west of the WH Executive Office building and Ellipse and the street another block west had a police car every block. However, on P Street near P Street Beach, 2100 hundred block, approaching sundown the whole area was saturated by as many as six cop cars per block i.e. "more" than for Obama. Obama's speech, Summers and Gates and Rahm Emmanuel's exodus, distracted from Carter's speech at GWU's Lisner auditoreum. Carter was not allowed to say a word at the Democrat Party's convention which nominated Obama. Obama is more Bushy than a Bush, having "bailed out" the predators which had designed hyper-inflation and collapse of the US real estate market and then ate their targeted prey, their competition such as Wachovia and Washington Mutual, and then been rewarded with dessert by Obama, bugging the eyes out of bloated predators seated heavily engorged and inutile aside the nation's structural employment problems. Offering them dessert demonstrate the same obsequious obeisance as Obama showed by approving east coast offshore drilling and allowing Venetian-Anglo-Dutch Pestroleum (BP) three months to change a light bulb--to have Akers Solutions dust off a patented pipe cap from the pipe cap warehouse and slap it on the Macondo pipe. Nobody seems to notice that 80% of US oil comes from wells too deep to be tapping fossil fuel, hence no Peak Oil problem exists.
On the northwest corner of the White House compound, a cop told me to get out of the road. I was walking out of the road near the concrete posts blocking the street south of Lafayette Park, the street formerly known as Pennsylvania Avenue but now not a road hence nothing to get out of. This was after the motorcade had passed and people were walking in the closed road behind the cop. His mind was bolluxed to oxymoronic degree. If he had kept his mouth shut I would never have known he was so confused. It was raining hard and I was not wearing sunglasses.
