Would someone PLEASE tell Jimmy Carter that he’s not the President anymore??? What is wrong with him? I’m embarrassed for him and I’m not even kin to him.
I originally posted the cartoon above in January 2006, so this isn’t new behavior on this man’s part!!!!
The Washington Post
Former president Jimmy Carter plans to meet next week in Damascus with Khaled Meshal, the head of the Palestinian militant group Hamas, in a direct rebuke of the Bush administration’s campaign to isolate it.
The disclosure of Carter’s plans by the Arabic-language newspaper al-Hayat and subsequent confirmation by sources familiar with his itinerary instantly placed the campaigns of Sens. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) in a political bind.
The campaign of Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), the presumptive Republican nominee, was quick to blast Carter’s plans and called on both Obama and Clinton to condemn the meeting with what the State Department lists as a terrorist group.
Both Clinton and Obama issued statements with milder language, saying they “disagreed” or did “not agree” with Carter’s plans.
Hamas is a terrorist organization that regularly bombs Israel and is an enemy of the United States. They receive assistance from Iran and Syria who have declared they are committed to the destruction of the United States and Israel and who are supplying weapons that are KILLING and maiming American Soldiers in Iraq.
A former President of the United States carries a certain amount of official clout. This meeting by this SILLY man will be used as a propaganda tool for the enemies of the United States and Israel. Former President Jimmah Carter is bringing shame on himself and on the United States though his misguided attempt to salvage some sort of legacy for himself. And I do believe this is all about HIM for him.
Its not wonder that his wife looks so angry all the time.
I can’t think of an example of a former President behaving so badly. T.R.E.A.S.O.N.
BTM with Right Pundits calls him a ‘dangerous coot’. HA!
President Carter is a disgrace to this country. It has gotten beyond the point where he is the crazy old former president who likes to build houses. The guy is now a plain embarrassment and frankly dangerous coot now.
Allahpundit thinks this is just too good to be true … for the election.
The leftâ€™s senior statesman, sitting down for a photo op with this degenerate in the heat of an election? After having only just recently quasi-endorsed a guy who, thanks to his associates, is already suspect on Israel? Itâ€™s too good to be true. Memo to JC: As an icebreaker, ask him how many Jews really died in the Holocaust.
Something … and Half of Something says this is a real opportunity for Hamas:
This is an outstanding opportunity for Hamas! Is it too much to hope for, that Al-Hayat will realize what a wonderful hostage Jimmy Carter would make? I sure would like to see a video of his sorry ass sitting in front of bunch of jihadis with a flag, some AKs and at least one kitchen knife. Yep, I’d call that a win-win situation, just think! Carter could give his all for his principles and beliefs, and we would be spared having to listen to the happy horseshit that pours out of his mouth every time he opens it. I’d call it poetic justice, and it would surely be a very fitting end to a very stupid man.
Beth at My Vast Right Wing Conspiracy is outraged.
If there were ever any doubt as to where Carter stands on terrorism vs. Israel ‘and for that matter, the West in general, including us’ this ought to settle it. Hamas? I shouldn’t be surprised, but HAMAS? A former President of the United States is going to legitmize this?
ShrinkWrapped says its an unconscious hate.
Jimmy Carter is the Godfather of the modern leftist hater. He presents a pious mien, untroubled by rage or hate. He truly sees himself as a man of peace. Yet Hamas is openly and unapologetically genocidal. Jimmy Carter hates through others maintaining deniability of his own monstrous impulses. His evil is worse than the banality Hannah Arendt described because he should know better. The compartmentalization required to embrace the murderers of innocents while proclaiming their moderation is breath taking yet never seems to give pause to our ex-President. Jimmy Carter is a hate filled and bitter man and every effort he makes seem to support monsters. It is a mystery only to him.
Hyscience says Jimmy Carter is a friend to our enemies.
Slobokan’s Site O’ Schtuff has a pictorial reminder of who it is that Jimmy Carter is meeting with.
This time, it’s worse than overseeing the election in Venezuela for Hugo Chavez. It’s worse than rubbing elbows with Fidel Castro. It’s worse than inviting Robert Mugabe to the White House. This time he is meeting with the exiled head of a terrorist organization.
