Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter is a confirmed Apple iPod and iPad user.
Dave Gilson reports for Mother Jones, “The folks over at Big Think have just posted a recent interview with President Jimmy Carter.” An excerpt:
We’ve become increasingly addicted to consumption of goods that we don’t produce ourselves, and a lot of the manufacturing has gone overseas… I have an iPad and also an iPod, both of which are made in China. Although we have designed them here with Apple, for instance, they are manufactured overseas.

The video of Carter can be viewed here.
Let the flaming begin.
Carter is self-immolating.
Peanut Boy helped send jobs overseas, the goddamned hypocrite….starting with some real important jobs in Panama.
And Rush Limbaugh is an avid Mac fan and user, too. So where does this leave us (other than with a rapidly shrinking U. S. manufacturing base for which both parties are responsible)?
Does any one give a rats ass what Carter is using !
This news calls for a big “So what!” As if it makes up for the damage he did while in office….
[Full disclosure: I voted for the guy. We’ve all done stuff we come to regret.]
Even a blind squirrel finds a peanut once in a while.
I hear he bought it on a credit card with a 30% interest rate and had to wait in line for three hours. The sad part is, they were stolen by some Iranians. He knew were they had them, but decided to just blame Israel and then go get some new ones.
It must have taken a lot for MDN not to write a take on this one…
Why should I give a flying F what one of the worst presidents in our history uses?
Wow, first time I’ve wanted to be not-known for using an Apple device…
@David… worst pres would be reagan or dubya hands down. reagan is why we are in the current economic mess in the first place… carter predicted most of what ails the us today… thanks for playin tho ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />
but how can they? if they were such bad presidents, why did they serve two terms? oh wait, the american people like to get fscked a second time without k-y.
Under Jimmy Carter, the US didn’t attack anyone. Amazing, considering the tendency of this country to wage war.
Carter’s biggest mistake is that he had the gall to tell the American people that they were f__ked and had to clean up their act.
Since we Americans prefer only good news from our politicians, we threw Carter out and elected a series of gentleman who told us we could continue our wasteful, imperialistic ways.
Well, the chickens have come home to roost and we are now really f__ked. Maybe if we listened to Carter 20 years ago we wouldn’t be borrowing craploads of money from the Chinese to buy petroleum from the Saudis who use the money to fund people who want to kill us.
