Carter Jumped the Shark

In my opinion, Carter jumped the shark when he first entered politics, but I was to young to remember then. Anyway, as an ex-president Carter certainly jumped the shark when he gave in to Kim Jong Ils nuclear program, but you have to blame that one on Clinton, not Carter. Certainly, Carter has jumped the shark with his recent book on palestine - especially when liberals like Alan Dershowitz says your an idiot.

Carter has gone even beyond the errors of his book in interviews, in which he has said that the situation in Israel is worse than the crimes committed in Apartheid South Africa. When asked whether he believed that Israel's "persecution" of Palestinians was "[e]ven worse . . . than a place like Rwanda," Carter answered, "Yes. I think -- yes."

How pathetic....

It seems to me to be unrealistic to blame Carter for the North Korea mess. The decider determined who should go and what were the parameters of the negotiation in recent months and years. Let's stop finding excuses for the Decider. He's been on the job for six years and the chickens are starting to come home to roost. The decider is a conservative, just a very stupid one, not unlike Boss Hogg. Conservatives must distance themselves from the Decider or he will set the conservative cause back decades, maybe even centuries.
In short, stop making excuses for the Decider. Lay the blame squarely at his feet where it belongs.

I also blame the decider for America some how avoiding another terrorist attack...when it was conventional wisdom that there would be one. I wonder if this lack of attacks has anything to do with the decisions the decider has made? Hmmm... Of course in your opinion, General lessismore, the decider is very stupid so it must be just dumb luck....In your opinion the decider is only responsible for what you see as the errors and not the successes. Although, perhaps you are so content in your peaceful home and prosperous lifestyle, which by the way, has grown unabated since the decider came into office, that you have forgotten relative comparisons in history.

Also, isn't "centuries" a little bit of an exaggeration?

"Jumped the shark" has jumped the shark.

I don't know whether to ignore this historical revisionism, or to comment, but it appears that die is cast. Unless "the decider" is Bill Clinton, who oversaw Carter's wholesale capitulation to the NoKos, you are propouneding a version of history that never happened. Even now, it looks like Bush's "stupid" diplomacy might result in the fall of both North Korea and Iran-- the remains of the "axis of evil"-- before his term expires.
