Jimmy Carter says he was elected president in 1976 by many of the same elements that fuel the new tea party movement.

“I don’t have any criticism of the members of the tea party,” the former Democratic president said Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.”

Carter then claimed “a lot of those same people, 30 years ago, were the ones who put me in the White House.”
