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