Former President Jimmy Carter today re-teamed with his vice president, Walter Mondale, for the Habitat for Humanity project in Minneapolis.

This year’s Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity project is bringing out the political star power.

Former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, were helping out today at the Hawthorne EcoVillage site in north Minneapolis as part of the 27th annual Carter Work Project.

Also on hand were Walter Mondale, Carter’s vice president, and Sen. Al Franken.

On Thursday, Carter will be in St. Paul’s Payne-Phalen neighborhood for Habitat home-building projects.

    And where is it that “W” is hanging out these days? In my 56 years I don’t remember another former president vanishing as quickly and as completely as George has.

    But then maybe he’s doing what the Republican Party has asked of him in order to facilitate their propaganda that American history skipped right from Bill Clinton to Barack Obama, and that the very high spending, high-deficit, economically destructive years of the Bush regime never actually happened and that the Big Recession and the financial collapse that began it had nothing to do with their tax cuts to the fabulously wealthy, their deregulation of everything in sight, their totally bogus Iraq war, and their complete inability to manage any aspect of the federal government.

    No doubt they’re hoping that, as with Bush, so with the Bush presidency, “out of sight, out of mind” (and considering the nature of our current MSM, and the public’s 12-second attention span, they’re likely to be right).
