Carter Forgets Own Failures, Blasts G.W. Bush

Can you believe Jimmy Carter has the nerve to blast President George W. Bush about his prowess in the area of international relations? That’s definitely a case of the pot calling the kettle black.

As evidenced in a Bob McCarty Writes post yesterday, I’m not the biggest fan of “W” at this point in time. But after I read the Associated Press article, Carter Blasts Bush on His Global Impact, published this evening, I had to take issue with the liberal peanut farmer from Plains, Ga.

Carter, the 39th president of these United States and a one-term president at that, is quoted as saying the 43rd president’s administration is “the worst in history” in international relations and also bashed Bush’s environmental policies, the Iraq war and the much-ballyhooed faith-based initiative.

Apparently, Carter has Partzheimer’s (a.k.a., Convenient Memory-Loss Syndrome), as evidenced by the fact that he has conveniently forgotten that it was his administration that allowed 52 American hostages to be held hostage for 444 days? Furthermore, Carter’s bare-bones approached to national defense resulted in a botched — and deadly — rescue attempt. Bush hasn’t let something like that happen.

And Carter has conveniently forgotten that it was his during his administration that the Iranian revolution took place. Yes, thanks to good ‘ol Jimmy, we now have the Iranian madman, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad threatening to use nuclear weapons against Israel, the United States and the West in general. If memory serves me correctly, Bush got rid of a dictator (Saddam Hussein) instead of allowing one to surface under his nose.

And, finally, did I mention that Carter…oh, forget it! I could go on forever.

The only good thing President Jimmy Carter can be remembered for is the fact that his poor performance helped usher in the era of our 40th president, Ronald Reagan, who returned this country to its proper position in the world as he saw it — as a “Shining City on a Hill.”

  1. I can add to the long list of purposeful blunders by former President Carter. He was the cause of Nicaragua falling to the Sandinistas, his “other” military action while in office. Not only did he send our helicopters across the Iranian desert on a suicide mission but when Samoza was refused the sale of arms by its ally, the US, it turned to Israel and bought and paid for what he needed to defend his government from the Russian goods being sent through Cuba to the Sandinistas. When the Israeli ships pulled into the Nicaraguan harbor to deliver the armaments, Carter sent our Navy to hold those Israeli ship under seige while the Nicaraguan government fell to communism. He also allowed this to happen in El Salvador but fell short on time in allowing El Salvador to completely fall to the rebels while he locked up the military aid already given to them. When Reagan was elected, he opened up the aid and quickly turned the tide of the war. Should I go on and mention the other 5 nations that fell to communism while Carter was in power? Not only did he not try and stop it, he seemingly encouraged it. Does anyone remember the double-digit inflation in the U.S. during the Carter years? When Carter arrived in El Salvador some years later, the protests in the streets prevented him from making one public appearance. They openly called him a communist because everything he did in Central America was for the communist cause.
