Yahoo! News reports Former President Carter says President Bush's administration is "the worst in history" in international relations, taking aim at the White House's policy of pre-emptive war and its Middle East diplomacy.
This from the worst president we ever had.
The criticism from Carter, which a biographer says is unprecedented for the 39th president, also took aim at Bush's environmental policies and the administration's "quite disturbing" faith-based initiative funding. "I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history,"
It will be interesting to see what historians 50 years from now say about both the Carter administration and the Bush administration.
Carter told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in a story that appeared in the newspaper's Saturday editions. "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."
Gee, a Democratic former president did not like any Republican president. Color me surprised.
Macranger blogged This coming from the worst President in US History, who while suffering depression - that he incidently tried to spread to the entire country - demanded the resignation of his entire Cabinet and 23 other senior White House officials.

Talk about depression, who could forget 18 percent inflation and 20-percent interest rates during his term. Cripes, I’m depressed just remembering it.

Not forget how he so completely micro-managed the Iran hostage rescue that he should have been tried for murder in the deaths of my comrades who perished in the botched operation, one of the greatest embarrassments to the Armed Services in history.

If there were a way to commit this crazy old man to the ex-presidential nuthouse, I’d sign the papers.

Pamela Geller Oshry blogged While Carter's domestic policies were Shermanesque (who can forget those 21% interest rates), it was his bungled, traitorous foreign policy that left the biggest scar on the face of humanity.

If there was one single moment in modern world history, when one critical fuck up determined the course of human events it was when Jimmy Carter abandoned our ally in Iran and literally installed the Ayatollah Khomeini as the leader the of the new Islamic state. In every conversation I had ever had with expatriate Iranians this is their mantra.
Sister Toldjah blogged Isn’t it very telling that the same former president who routinely takes up for and makes excuses for Palestinian terrorists, including the Hamas terrorist organization - while trying to undermine the United States by bringing Cuba to the UN human rights table - doesn’t extend that same benefit of the doubt to his own country’s government?

This is the moral bankruptcy Jimmy Carter brings to the table every time he opens his mouth to denigrate the President while siding with the Jew-hating terrorists who comprise Hamas. Via extension, Carter, sadly, is representative of so many other modern day Democrats when it comes to denouncing this administration while downplaying the threats we face overseas, essentially saying that it’s President Bush who is the bigger threat than actual terrorists who want to kill us.

As far as the “worst administration in history” bit, I wonder if Carter happens to have a mirror handy for the next time he says that, especially considering the fact that not only does he continue to make excuses for terrorists but former officials in his own adminstration are doing the same thing?
