Jimmy Carter

"When you emphasize, over and over, welfare, food stamps and ‘Why don’t the Black people get jobs," and if I’m president, I’ll make sure they turn toward a work ethic, rather than an ethic of welfare and food stamps, that’s appealing to the wrong element in South Carolina," said former President Jimmy Carter in an interview on CNN about Newt Gingrich’s controversial comments about President Obama and putting poor children to work.
