The Worst Ex President

The debate is still out on whether Jimmy Carter is the worst President ever. Certainly, Carter is one of the worst. However there should be no debate, as this column from yesterday shows, that Carter is undoubtedly the worst Ex-President. Carter is in fact a shame on American history...perhaps the Nero of our time.

I enjoyed this snub from the column most of all:

But something happened along the way to the next election: The State Department declined to endorse Carter's recall referendum observational results, as it had announced it would, and nobody important wanted the Carter Center's business anymore. Carter was conspicuously absent from the dead-serious elections in Ukraine and Iraq recently. Ever the vindictive little man, Carter "participated" in those by sniping at these great human events from the sidelines. For that, President Bush didn't care to call on him to lead tsunami relief either, as he did all other able-bodied former presidents.

Carter should have stayed busy building houses. Since he gave up that job he has moved on to appeasing North Korea (a dangerous failure), to allowing Michael Riefenstahl Moore to sit with him during the Democratic Convention, and to collaberating with leftist leaders around the world with his phony democracy firm (among other things...). In addition, Carter's receipt of the Nobel Peace Prize is one of the biggest shams in the Award's history. Perhaps peace is a relative term, which does not include one's abuse of their own people (that is apparently okay in Carter's mind).

The Nobel Peace Prize was cheapened because Carter received it while Pope John Paul II has not.

Not to mention (ok, actually specifically TO mention) the late, and much bereaved Chairman Arafat.

True about Arafat. Arafat receiving the award is much more egregious than Carter. In fact, Arafat receiving the award is really the punchline of the whole joke. Carter is merely an afterthought.

Cheapened? Arafat receiving the Nobel Peace Prize didn't merely cheapen it - it rendered it completely irrelevant. Carter is a knuclehead for sure, but as much as I dislike him, I don't stoop to put him in the same category as Arafat. Carter wants to kill the American spirit - Arafat wants to kill Americans. There's a big difference.
