When Former U.S. Presidents Attack

"I think I represent the vast majority of Democrats in this country."
-former President Jimmy Carter

Uh..okay. I think we're good to go in November, now, folks.

I think it's interesting that Carter describes Christian fundamentalists as such:

"The fundamentalists believe they have a unique relationship with God, and that they and their ideas are God's ideas and God's premises on the particular issue. Therefore, by definition since they are speaking for God anyone who disagrees with them is inherently wrong."

Using Carter's logic, isn't this also an accurate description of Hezbollah?

When asked about Israel's justification to attack Lebanon, Carter responds:

"I don't think that Israel has any legal or moral justification for their massive bombing of the entire nation of Lebanon. What happened is that Israel is holding almost 10,000 prisoners, so when the militants in Lebanon or in Gaza take one or two soldiers, Israel looks upon this as a justification for an attack on the civilian population of Lebanon and Gaza."

I'm sure all 10,000 prisoners are in prison because they were crossing the street the wrong way - model citizens, every one of them. Carter never mentions the dozens of suicide bombings over the years in Israel or the countless rocket attacks against Israeli civilians.

All this coming from the man who let the hostages rot in Iran.

Israel, continue to stand firm.

So, then, that much-circulated picture of Rumsfeld shaking hands with Saddam Hussein (big smile on his face) as he sold him more WMDs during the Reagan years should convince us all of the true nature of the GOP for Novemeber? Or the many pictures (many finding their way into Michael Moore's movies) of Bush cozying up to the Bin Laden family?
What about the way (and I'm sure there's a photo somewhere) that, acting on behalf of the then-new Bush Admin., Colin Powell travelled to Afghanistan and delivered a bunch of U.S. dollars for them to convince Afghan farmers to grow something else than opium? Even though the CIA and FBI had already told them the Taliban was using such money to finance Osama bin Laden's terrorism activities?

Or do these kind of out-of-context snapshots and quotes ONLY tell us what we need to know when they are of Democrats?

Just asking.

why do people try to defend others who are wrong, quite disgustingly wrong, by pointing out things like, "Oh, well so and so was WORSE!" instead of saying, "Yeah, Jimmy Carter is being a fargin' idiot dhimmi, as a Democrat I denounce him!"

For the record, I have been a registered Democrat since 1992 when I turned 18, and I haven't voted Democrat in quite a bit of time because I'm so disgusted by the Jimmy Carteresque behavior.

And in all seriousness, I think that Jimmy Carter is more responsible than he would ever be able to pay back in purgatory for our current problems with terrorism. This war started in 1979 on his watch, and he opened the gate wide for them to come in.

20/20 hindsight may be perfect, but anyone with a smidgin of historical knowledge knows how well buying off the raiders worked for Alfred the Great. Nothing in the last 1000 years has happened to change that.

People often make mistakes, but Carter's very consistent with his mistakes and has associated himself with multiple enemies of the U.S. since he has been out of office. (most especially in the last few years)

LOL--AWESOME POST!!!!!!!!!! I was ticked off big time today listening to Rush talk about Carter's interview about Israel and Hezbollah. I'm probably going to post on how I think Carter's idiocy has ruined this country more than Clinton's corruptness. I so despise this man. To have the audacity to say that Israel had no right to defend themselves is just beyond absurd. Calling him an idiot is too nice!! I was yelling at the radio today. Can you tell this issue gets me fired up :-)?????

Dhimmi Carter, the eunuch that once occupied the White House for four years, has never met a dictator or communist that he didn't like better than his homeland. Why is Dhimmi Carter speaking ill of the US to der Speigel? Obviously Dhimmi's contempt for the US doesn't stop at our shoreline.

The only good thing I can ascribe to Jimmy Carter is that his utter inability to perform his job as Commander in Chief enabled the election of President Reagan.

It was a high price to pay.

Sadly he's right - most Dems do think like him.

I'm with you Word, we dont look to bad in November considering the Left Wing Loones are trying to take away the tools we need to fight these Islamo-Fruitloops.

And Carter said "Hamas" would be a good thing for the Palestinian people! P'shaw.

I wonder if he said the same thing about Hezblahhh and the Lebanese people!

Why cant he just go back to his Peanut farm and leave it to the Republicans to defend this Country?
He was a miserable failure as President, and as Mike said the only good thing he ever did was enable Reagan to become President.

Jimmy Carter? **spit**

The man needs to shut the hell up! He's giving aid and comfort to the enemy during a worldwide war.

Hey All,

You have to give Mr. Carter kudos for increasing the tarnished reputation of the DNC leadership when it comes to national security, and well, every other point of national interest. The election cycle is two months away....

The difference is Fidel Castro is no friend of the U.S.; and yet Carter cozies up to him. Ain't that sweet? His interview is more than just about who he happens to be throwing baseballs with. I could care less if Castro is his bestest golfing buddy.

And alliances come and go; friendships are not forever. At one time we allied ourselves with Stalin, and rightly so. And I don't recall the U.S. selling wmds to Saddam.

Now, if you could find me a photo of someone in the Bush Administration shaking hands with Osama bin Laden or giving ol' Kim Jong-Il a warm hug NOW, I'd love to see that.

And the bin Laden family is not the enemy, just because an apple from their tree went rotten. And there are many photos of U.S. leaders of many administrations shaking hands with the Saudis.
