    JC is not worth remembering in any positive way.
    He was not up for the job easily fooled and weak .
    Perhaps he was as good as we ever deserve in this modern age.

    I say turn it over to the DOJ to house homeless "palestinians" .

    Do you also get upset over military pensions?

    I don't see the problem here. He receives far less than any other living President who is out office and lifetime protection from the Secret Service.

    There are several legitimate reasons to criticize Jimmy Carter, however this isn't one of them.

    I'm fully aware of where the phrase "Mad as a Hatter" comes from.

    That doesn't answer my question however. I'm failing to see the problem here. Is it with the fact that a former President of the United States has received secret service protection after he has left office? The only President to ever get rid of his protection was Nixon, ten years after he left office.

    Your complaint I assume wouldn't be how much Jimmy Carter receives since your own article points out that he receives far less than any other President.

    If your problem is with him receiving any funds because you thought he was incompetent, then I'm sure others would make the same partisan argument when it comes to George Sr or George Jr.

    All former presidents get Secret Service protection after leaving office. Nixon did, Ford did etc etc. Thats just one of the perks of being the president.

    Except you didn't post the whole story. I ran what you gave through google and found the rest myself. I'm not allowed to post links yet apparently until after 15 posts, however anyone can look up the article on the Washington Times website.

    The National Park Service themselves said they took a preemptive approach with keeping up maintenance of the Carter home instead of making the same mistake as with the Eisenhower estate.

    This thread honestly just seems to be an excuse to attack former President Carter on an non-issue.
