    Now they are trying to say he was just airsick.

    An ambulance met the Delta aircraft Carter had been traveling on when it landed just after 11:30 a.m. this morning at the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, according to the airport's public information officer Jacqueline Mayo.
    "Former President Jimmy Carter was taken by ambulance to MetroHealth Hospital when he landed," said Mayo.

    Mayo was not sure whether Carter, 85, was taken off the plane on a stretcher.
    MetroHealth Center has deferred all Carter inquiries to The Carter Center.
    A volunteer at the Carter Center in Atlanta, Ga., told ABC News that the former president is not suffering from life-threatening injuries and had just fallen "air sick" on the flight to Cleveland, where he was scheduled to appear at a signing for his new book, "White House Diary."
    "He threw up, he was air sick when he got off the plane," said Carter Center volunteer Bernice Moore. "He was not hospitalized."


    You'd think he could just use the little white bag you find in the seat pocket like everyone else.

    He's 85 and a former president. Doctors tend to go overboard with a patient like that. Better safe than sorry, I suppose.

    Jimmy Carter remains in Ohio hospital for observation

    Meghan Barr / Associated Press

    Cleveland -- Former President Jimmy Carter, feeling normal and hoping to resume a book publicity tour soon, remained in an Ohio hospital today after doctors recommended additional observation following an overnight stay for an upset stomach.
    "Carter is feeling normal this morning," Christina Karas, spokeswoman at MetroHealth Medical Center said today. "His doctors at MetroHealth Medical Center recommended additional observation during the day. He looks forward to resuming his schedule as soon as possible."

    It was not immediately clear if Carter would attend two scheduled events in Washington later today, including one at the Smithsonian Institution, to promote his book "White House Diary." A message left for the publicity manager at Carter's publisher was not immediately returned.


    Book signings in a Cleveland suburb and Durham, N.C., were canceled Tuesday when the 85-year-old Carter fell ill on a flight to Cleveland.
    Carter's grandson, Georgia state Sen. Jason Carter, said Tuesday his grandfather was doing fine.
    "He's definitely resting comfortably and expected to continue his book tour this week," Jason Carter said. "I haven't talked to him, but nobody in the family is concerned."
    On Tuesday, Karas said Carter was fully alert and participating in all decision-making related to his care, and that the decision to admit him overnight was purely precautionary.
    Carter was a passenger on a Delta Air Lines flight from Atlanta to Cleveland when he became ill. After the plane landed, he was taken off by rescue crews, said Jackie Mayo, a spokeswoman at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
    He was wheeled into an emergency room at MetroHealth on a stretcher and later was up and walking around, said Mary Atkins, who had taken her daughter to the hospital for medical treatment and saw Carter from a nearby room.
    "He walked by the room and he was saying he was ready to go," she said. "They had Secret Service everywhere."
    President Barack Obama called Carter from Air Force One as he traveled from New Mexico to Wisconsin, White House spokesman Bill Burton said. Carter was feeling great, Burton said.
    About 500 people had waited in line Tuesday afternoon at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in suburban Lyndhurst, where Carter was scheduled to sign copies of his book. The event was later canceled, as was a Tuesday night appearance at the Regulator Bookshop in Durham, N.C.

    "It's crazy for an 85-year-old guy to fly ... just to sign some books," Regulator Bookshop co-owner John Valentine said. "He's a brave guy. His health is most important."

    In the book, Carter said he pursued an overly aggressive agenda as president that may have confused voters and alienated lawmakers. But he said the tipping points that cost him the 1980 election were the Iran hostage crisis and the Democratic primary challenge by U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy.

    Carter, a former peanut farmer elected to the White House in 1976, has spent his recent years pursuing peace and human rights, efforts that won him the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002

    More than one night? I think it's more than simple air sickness.

    Former president Jimmy Carter will remain in a Cleveland hospital tonight, a day after a bout of air sickness.A statement from the Carter Center in Atlanta:
    Former president Jimmy Carter will remain at MetroHealth Medical Center overnight. His medical team continues to observe his progress. President Carter is in very good spirits, appreciates all the good wishes being sent his way and looks forward to getting back to his busy schedule. We expect this to be the only update until tomorrow morning.
    President Carter was admitted to MetroHealth yesterday after developing an upset stomach on a flight to Cleveland.

    I think Jimmy Carter is one of the best post Presidents with
    all the work him and his wife did with stuff like Habitat for Humanity.

    Just hope all the best for him.

    Politics aside, I always regarded Carter as a Christian gentleman. He never seemed to fit into what's now called the Washington cartel. After he left office, in addition to hooking up with Habitat For Humanity, Carter returned to teaching a Sunday School class at the Baptist Church in Plains.

    I feel the same way. He was a weak president but the strongest of character.

    I agree....he was a family guy with values.......but dear god was he a bad president. The 5th worst ever
    To my Father. Even though you have crossed the plane, you will always be with me.
    You were not just my Father, but my hero. My life has been a poor attempt to be like you
    You taught me music, vocals, and how to fight. I can only hope I am half the man you are
    When I close my eyes I can see you. And finally, Thank you Dad. for everything.

    Indeed. He was a fairly effective ambassador post presidency but when he would start opinionating about foreign and domestic policies it was cringe worthy.

    I always thought he had a streak of anti-semitism in him.

    Thanks for your post, cash. Carter appears to be doing very well, under the circumstances, for a man of 91. He also comes across as truly putting his future in God's hands, whatever may come.

    His presidency was marked by bad decisions, the ultimate was the Iranian hostage situation and failed rescue attempt. I don't believe Carter had much of an idea of what he was getting into becoming president, probably not following the elites' "advice" due to his own moral compass, then subsequently followed intentional bad advice from his Cabinet which was designed to pave the way for the faux American savior Ronald Reagan, the role for him which was constructed by the elites. Scuttlebutt is that a Reagan campaign higher-up (James Baker?) cut a deal with Iran to hold off releasing the hostages until immediately after Reagan was sworn in, making for terrific political theater...or soap opera if you prefer.

    I remember well, during the post inaugural luncheon, Reagan announcing a plane with all the hostages had just left Iranian air space, heading for Germany I believe it was. Oh the Iranians were shaking in their sandals, fearing what the new John Wayne President Reagan might do what the "weakling" Carter didn't.

    Geez. Right out of the movies.

    Main articles: Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid and Commentary on Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid
    See also: Israel and the apartheid analogy
    In a 2007 speech to Brandeis University, Carter stated: "I have spent a great deal of my adult life trying to bring peace to Israel and its neighbors, based on justice and righteousness for the Palestinians. These are the underlying purposes of my new book."[134]
    In his book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, published in November 2006, Carter states:
    Israel's continued control and colonization of Palestinian land have been the primary obstacles to a comprehensive peace agreement in the Holy Land.[135]
    He declares that Israel's current policies in the Palestinian territories constitute "a system of apartheid, with two peoples occupying the same land, but completely separated from each other, with Israelis totally dominant and suppressing violence by depriving Palestinians of their basic human rights."[135] In an Op-Ed titled "Speaking Frankly about Israel and Palestine," published in the Los Angeles Times and other newspapers, Carter states:

    Former President Jimmy Carter hospitalized with broken pelvis after fall.This is a bad sign for the old guy. He will lose mobility and then he gets a bad cold and then pnuemonia.

    Well, the article said "minor fracture" and he's in the hospital under observation and "looking forward to recovering at home." But, you never know what something like that will swing in an olden person.

    True, a "minor fracture" is a big thing for a person
    at 95 years old.

    Indeed.
    "Waking up" and being aware of it is a pretty significant event at 95 too.

    Good luck and best wishes to him.
