Jimmy Carter Beats Around Bush [Updated]

You know that it's an insult when someones says that President Bush's administration is the worst in history. But, it's a double slap in the face when that criticism comes from, of all people, former President Jimmy Carter--or, maybe that should be a compliment considering the source. Carter is coming across as some old geezer screaming at kids for walking on his lawn.

Jimmy Carter's Legacy

(AP) 'I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history. ...The overt reversal of America's basic values as expressed by previous administrations, including those of George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon and others, has been the most disturbing to me.'

Carter did such a great job with Iran, the Shah, and our embassay hostages. And, why is he going back to attack Nixon? Even Democrats generally give Nixon credit for his foreign policies and his advice to subsequent administrations.

Now, here's another good part of the story.

He spoke while promoting his new audiobook series, "Sunday Mornings in Plains," a collection of weekly Bible lessons from his hometown of Plains, Ga.

Those attacks are really Christian of Jimmy Carter. Maybe he should read lessons on overcoming defeat, anger, and bitterness. Does he look bitter in this picture accompanying the article? Maybe, just a little.

Carter wraps it up by attacking a foreign leader who supports our country, apparently Carter being unable to see that supporting our leader is the same as backing our nation. Well, I guess he might see it and doesn't like that.

Carter also lashed out Saturday at British prime minister Tony Blair. Asked how he would judge Blair's support of Bush, the former president said: 'Abominable. Loyal. Blind. Apparently subservient.'

That's no way to treat a friend.

Well, I'm optimistic that Carter will hang on to the titles of "worst administration overall" and the "worst former president." Double digit inflation, unemployment, and interest rates within our nation during his administration are hard to beat on top of his Iranian disaster, as are the totally unprecedented attacks against our nation and its leaders since he has left office.


Bush White House fires back at Jimmy Carter

CRAWFORD, Texas (Reuters) - White House spokesman Tony Fratto...fired back. 'I think it's sad that President Carter's reckless personal criticism is out there. I think it's unfortunate. And I think he is proving to be increasingly irrelevant with these kinds of comments.' ....

Jimmy who?

You know, it's still not too late for Carter to declare his candidacy for 2008...

You're right! Carter could serve another term. Maybe Mondale could be his V.P. again, too.

I bloged about this, too, George. I would use the word "chutzpah" to describe President Peanut Farmer's comments, but that would be a major understatement. Truly, this man has no shame.........

Carter obviously forgot about his own administration. After Nixon, we thought it couldn't get any worse. We were wrong.

Carter is backing off...

"Former President Jimmy Carter said Monday his remarks were "careless or misinterpreted" when he said the Bush administration has been the "worst in history" for its impact around the world. "

It's a little embarrassing... There's no way you can make a statement with that much conviction and then turn around and try to take it back. I guess he feels it's the right thing to do but my philosophy is that you either stand by what you say or you don't say it.

And don't forget the Mariel Boatlift debacle. I still have in my possession a letter, dated in 1980, from Carter's government demanding that we pay $210,000 to the government for Cubans brought into the country on my husband's boat. They even enclosed a remittance envelope!

210 people were forced onto my husband's boat in Mariel harbor by Castro's military, grossly overloading it, and then were forced out into the open sea. This is after my husband was held on his boat in Mariel Harbor for 32 days at gunpoint. Jimmah's administration thought it was a good idea to come up with an arbitrary $1000 per head and make *us* pay for the actions of Castro's regime.

What putz.
