Former President Jimmy Carter, a man whose dismal failure as president is exceeded only by his utter incompetence as a former president, has once again disparaged President Bush in interviews with the BBC and 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,” Carter told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in an interview published yesterday. Carter said the reversal of America’s basic values as expressed by the admistrations of the elder Bush, Reagan, Nixon “and others has been the most disturbing to me.” Carter spoke to the paper while promoting his new audiobook series, “Sunday Mornings in Plains.”
Unremarkably, Carter did not include his own admistration in reference to American values. But then again it would be quite a stretch of the imagination to think you honor American values when your own admistration is stained by the international humiliation of our embassy in Iran attacked, captured, and held hostage before the world’s stage for 444 days.
Republican National Committee spokeswoman Amber Wilkerson said, “Apparently, Sunday mornings in Plains for former President Carter includes hurling wreckless accusations at your fellow man.” She said it was hard to take Carter seriously because he also “challenged Ronald Reagan’s strategy for the Cold War.”
Not content to only impugn President Bush, Carter also lashed out at British Prime Minister Tony Blair. Asked how he would judge Blair’s support of Bush, Carter said, “Abominable. Loyal. Blind. Apparently subservient.”
Just as he has many times before, the peanut farmer from Georgia exhibits what has become commonly known as the “Jimmy Carter Syndrome.” Having been rejected by the American people, he now seeks comfort, solace, and approval from America’s enemies.
