Jimmy Carter Lies About Tea Party Criticism

Former President Jimmy Carter must think Americans have Alzheimer's.

Via NewsBusters:
Former president Jimmy Carter lied in an interview with NPR talk-show host Diane Rehm on Tuesday. She ended the interview by asking about the Tea Party and he claimed he had never criticized them -- despite smearing them as racists in 2009 in an NBC interview with Brian Williams:
REHM: Last question, very briefly, what do you think of the Tea Party movement?

CARTER: You know, I never have criticized the Tea Party movement because, strangely enough, I capitalized on the same kind of situation politically that has made the Tea Party successful

Here is the part of the NBC Interview they are referring too.

Jimmy Carter claimed the Tea Party was suborned by right-wing oligarchs less than a month ago.
