#3 Time was I used to think he was a good natured but honestly misguided person.
Turns out I was misguided giving that old useless dick the benefit of the doubt.

#4 Wow, what a humongous ego. He still thinks he can make promises to foreign governments and expect them to be upheld? That ended 26 years ago Jimmy. Wake up and fuckin realize it, dipshit.

#5 I'm embarrased every time I see that tired old hack. He should have left this country long ago if he doesn't uphold the values this country stands for.

#6 I will long remember a dear, sweet, little old lady being escorted by her family to a restaurant to celebrate her 92nd birthday. Some kook was literally soapboxing, standing on a box to rail at the crowd about some schizophrenic political conspiracy theory.

Watching him for a few seconds, the little old lady suddenly boomed out, in an uncharacteristically deep voice for a little old lady:


There was a pregnant pause, then somebody in the crowd snickered, and everybody there but the fanatic cracked up in loud laughter. That was pretty much the end of the political show.

Whenever I read about someone like Jimmuh Carter, the voice of the dear, sweet, republican, little old lady comes through, loud as a bell.

#8 Seems to me that if we can't terminate his pension, we should at least pay it in some foreign currency -- perhaps Iranian payable only at the former U.S. Embassy in Tehran.

#10  How the hell was this drooling embarrassment elected president?!?

1 - President Ford pardoned Richard Nixon which pissed off enough people as not to show up at the polls.

2 - He refused to fire Kissinger who'd already decided the Soviets had won which pissed off enough people not to show up at the polls.

Ford was the Washington establishment's choice for election. He beat out his Republican primary challenger, Ronald Reagan. Guess what happened four years later?

#11 He also reiterated his known view that most of the problems in the Israeli-Arab front derive from Israel's settlement policies and its building of a defensive barrier in what he insisted on calling "Palestine."

Yeah, sure, you betcha. The endless white-hot genocidal Arab hatred for the Jews has nothing to do with it at all. If this @sshole isn't senile, he oughta be. Do the Democrats realize that they've gone past the point of being amusingly misguided and crossed over into the realm of being dangerously idiotic?

#12 First of all, Mr. Carter is a U.S. citizen and as such is entitled to exercise his right of free speech. I disagree with virtualy everything he says, but I support his right to say it.

Second, it is important to understand that this is the core position of the Democratic party. It is what Kos believes. It is what Hollywood and the old media believes. It is what Gore believes (but didn't say until after his presidential run); it is what Kerry believes, and it is what Hillary believes but won't state publicly.

#13 Asked yesterday about his views on religion, Mr. Carter said, "The essence of my faith is one of peace." In a clear swipe at Mr. Bush's faith, and to a round of applause, he then added, "We worship the prince of peace, not of pre-emptive war." Mr. Carter then went on to attack American Christians who support Israel.

That epitomizes what I can't stand about "mainline" Protestant Churches: the pride of using the Church as a soapbox for one's political views and not knowing the difference between the political and theological. At least the Roman Catholic Church, for all its faults - agree with it or not, very clearly defines the core dogma of the Church and what is in the realm of personal conviction.

#15 At least ex-President John Tyler had the stones to join another government. He died in 1862 while a member of the Confederate House of Representatives.

#16 DoDo - this bullshit is NOT free speech.

Giving promises to foreign governments in the name of our government when he is not authorized by our government to do so is flat-out sedition. Especially when those promises are against the policy of our country.

I'd say put him in jail, but the other prisoners would probably complain it was cruel and unusual punishment. For them.

Since he thinks all these dictatorships are so wonderful, he needs to live in one of them. Permanently.

I suggest Gaza.

#17 Carter is a negative indicator. If he's for a position, any sane person will question it. BTW, he's for letting Dubai run our ports.

Freedom of speech doesn't include the right to conduct your own foreign policy. Carter's passport should be revoked.

Or, hell, he needs to be evaluated by a mental health professional.
