Looks like the peanut farmer has taken up Holocaust denial as a hobby:

Not an unreasonable answer to a kids question from an "elder statesman".

From my listen, he used the term "so called" to indicate "that thing that is referred to as", not as in "the alleged". Before the phrase, he sets it up as "Then he [Hitler] perpetrated one of the worst crimes that has ever been seen in world history" (paraphrase). After the phrase, He goes on to state that Hitler tried to eliminate the jews.

Giving the Devil (that being Carter) his due, I don't think this is a case of holocaust denial. Maybe a poor turn of phrase. I don't even really think that so much, as a locution not much used, and ripe for sound bite abuse. Even so, the sound bite in question has him clearly stating that Hitler did try to eliminate the jews.

Now, his opinion MIGHT be that Hitler unfortunately botched the job, but I don't think that can fairly be extrapolated from this quote. What one extrapolates from his stance on Israel is a different matter entirely. ;->

Still, Worst. President. Evar.

The guy is leftist totalitarian-loving swine, but this is senility rather than evil intent.
