Absolutely Hilarious: Carter calls Bush worst ever president in international relations (Ha, Ha, Ha!!!!)


My Way News - Carter: Bush 'Worst' in World Relations

Jimmy Carter has done everything in he can think of to change the fact that he was the most over-matched and ineffective president in our nations history, or at the very least in the last 100 years. He was so weak that his opponent in the 1980 Election, California Governor Ronald Reagan, was able to negotiate the release of American hostages in Iran prior to ever assuming the presidency, which Carter himself tried futilely to do himself two years. Carter can make accusations until his heart is content about how Bush has made terrible decisions, or that Bush's policies have been reckless, but that will never change his legacy.

Carter told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, "I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world this administration has been the worst in history." He continued, "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."

As long as it makes Carter sleep better at night, he can say whatever he wants, but the fact remains that regardless of Bush and his decisions, Carter's authority in international relations was about as impotent as Bob Dole without his Viagra. One of the most depressing things to watch, at least in my opinion, is an interview with Jimmy Carter. Every time he is on television he looks like a man who knows he was a huge disappointment and has been in denial about that fact ever since, as he tries in vain to explain what he thought he was going to accomplish with the Camp David Accords.

Tulane University presidential historian and Carter biographer David Brinkley said in response to Carter's comments, "This is the most forceful denunciation President Carter has ever made about an American president. When you call somebody the worst president, that's volatile. Those are fighting words."

Carter even thinks it appropriate to lash out at outgoing British Prime Minister Tony Blair. Carter calls Blair in an interview with the BBC, "Abominable. Loyal. Blind. Apparently subservient. And I think the most undeviating support by Great Britain for the ill-advised policies of President Bush have been a major tragedy for the world." Carter isn't worthy to walk the Prime Minister's dog, so who cares what he thinks about Blair's impact on US-UK relations.

I personally believe that we should all consider ourselves lucky that Carter isn't taken very seriously in the real world. For all of the good things Carter has done recently to help salvage some sort of legacy out of a career mired in disappointment and failure, this total lack of respect for the office he once held erases everything in my opinion. President Carter, please shut up and go away, you are only embarrassing yourself further.
