Jimmy Carter and the humiliation of the West 

Jimmy Carter -- you know, the former President of the United States, Nobel Peace Prize winner, and post-modern citizen of the world -- continues his campaign to legitimize Yassir Arafat, the man who popularized his cause by teaching terrorists that they should attack international targets. If Carter were working to destroy the credibility of both the presidency and the Nobel Prize on purpose he could not do a better job.

MORE: "Could Carter be more of a disgrace?" With all due respect to Andy, what makes him think that Carter is going to stop now?

Too bad the 25th amendment ceases effect upon leaving office. If Obama wants to talk about "bitter" people, he might focus his attention on discredited politicians, instead of gun-totin', religious citizens.

If only the news organizations would responsibly agree to not give him coverage, he would stop. He's obviously a man in desperate straits, and the coverage is reminescent of watching OJ in his white Bronco. It's sad, really, and can only end badly. It wouldn't surprise me to see Carter do something really stupid next, like visiting FARC in their jungle lair, or issuing an approving statement about the nuclear arming of Iran.

Politics is one thing, but the part that has always astounded me is the fact that the U. S. Navy actually gave Carter command of a nuclear submarine. Carter is [was] a terrible indictment of the USN's selection methodology.

No it didn't.

"Upon the death of his father in July 1953, however, Lieutenant Carter immediately resigned his commission and was discharged from the Navy on October 9, 1953. This cut short his nuclear power training school, and he was never able to serve on a nuclear submarine, as the first of the fleet was launched January 17, 1955, over a year after his discharge from the Navy."

Not only did he leave the Navy before there were nuclear submarines, he was a full 3 ranks shy of Captain.

You miserable right wing turds--this is a man who tries to serve human beings rather than grumble about them. I am sick of you clowns who purport to love America yet seem to hate Americans. Yes, that's the distinction. Oh, and check out this piece from a recent expose in Vanity Fair:

"...Vanity Fair has obtained confidential documents, since corroborated by sources in the U.S. and Palestine, which lay bare a covert initiative, approved by Bush and implemented by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Deputy National Security Adviser Elliott Abrams, to provoke a Palestinian civil war. The plan was for forces led by Dahlan, and armed with new weapons supplied at America’s behest, to give Fatah the muscle it needed to remove the democratically elected Hamas-led government from power. (The State Department declined to comment.)

But the secret plan backfired, resulting in a further setback for American foreign policy under Bush. Instead of driving its enemies out of power, the U.S.-backed Fatah fighters inadvertently provoked Hamas to seize total control of Gaza.

Some sources call the scheme “Iran-contra 2.0,” recalling that Abrams was convicted (and later pardoned) for withholding information from Congress during the original Iran-contra scandal under President Reagan. There are echoes of other past misadventures as well: the C.I.A.’s 1953 ouster of an elected prime minister in Iran, which set the stage for the 1979 Islamic revolution there; the aborted 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion, which gave Fidel Castro an excuse to solidify his hold on Cuba; and the contemporary tragedy in Iraq.

Within the Bush administration, the Palestinian policy set off a furious debate. One of its critics is David Wurmser, the avowed neoconservative, who resigned as Vice President Dick Cheney’s chief Middle East adviser in July 2007, a month after the Gaza coup.

Wurmser accuses the Bush administration of 'engaging in a dirty war in an effort to provide a corrupt dictatorship [led by Abbas] with victory.' He believes that Hamas had no intention of taking Gaza until Fatah forced its hand. 'It looks to me that what happened wasn’t so much a coup by Hamas but an attempted coup by Fatah that was pre-empted before it could happen,' Wurmser says.

The botched plan has rendered the dream of Middle East peace more remote than ever, but what really galls neocons such as Wurmser is the hypocrisy it exposed.

'There is a stunning disconnect between the president’s call for Middle East democracy and this policy,' he says. 'It directly contradicts it...' "

Why don't climb out of your Archie Bunker chairs and help make things better, than whine and bitch and excorate and read more rightwing drivel. At least Carter's done that. Built homes for people, tried toeducate people. People who don't look like him, or necessary agree with him. Last time I checked, that was called being a Christian.

Well, I learned something. I have long believed that Carter commanded a nucular submarine. That vindicates the USN's selection methodology.
Alas, it does nothing to make Carter anything less than a shit-for-brains, dumb fuck.
Carter doesn't serve anybody but himself. He works against America and America;s interests, probably, out of guilt for his failure as president, as a person and as an American.
In all the reference books, next to the definition of "Bush Derangement Symdrome (BDS)," you'll she a picture of Jimmy Carter.

You, by far, hold the trophy on this blog for contempt of fellow Americans. (see below for a sample) Congratulations.

Read the chapter on Carter, the chapter that describes his behavior away from microphones, (I'm pretty sure that the line "most personally dishonest man to ever hold the office of President, and that counts Clinton" is in there) and tell me again how Christian he is. Not that I have any confidence you understand or respect Christianity anyway, given your history here. Actually, let's review that history a bit, shall we?

"Such is the world you right wing dumbasses created."

"I'm sure Fox will spin this as "heroine and democracy saint" Benazir Bhutto murdered by Muslims--likely IRAN...or MICHAEL MOORE...as if they gave a crap about Benazir Bhutto or the average NASCAR dad knew what a Bhutto was."

"Stick to taxes, guns, union-busting, etc.--stuff where you can truly "get your whiteboy whine on" and sound halfway normal."

"Indeed, more insidious was the FACT that the Mexicans INVITED you dickheads to settle and live peaceably, didn't force any of you to be Catholics. But no. That wasn't enough. Stop trying to recast this crap as the "left" in an uproar. It was history. What do you give...what do you surrender, by admitting something was plain ol' history? I swear you angry white guys have lost your damns mind."

"I saw a video taken by a GI (and posted on YouTube--a No No!--before the censors got it) of a Sunni kid getting cludgeled to unconsciousness for trying to protect his sister from being murdered because she had sex with a kid she loved, rather than the creep her parents picked out for her. So I guess everything's bac to normal! Rejoice! The Surge worked. Long live the War Czar. hahahahaha."

Hmm. Racist generalizations, insults, callousness at human suffering, and appalling arrogance. And that's just 1/3 of a page of quasi-randomized Google results of 'Tigerhawk Christopher Chambers.' There were 4 pages, total. I just skipped the ones where you offered to magically teleport through the Internet to beat people up.

But somehow, you're worthy to lecture an entire body of people on what it means to be a Christian.

I think I will never encounter your equal, Chrissy. You, sir, are a champion among douchebags.

Nice post from CC. Proving once again why his books rank #973,743 and #1,099,456 on amazon.com.

And the beat just keeps coming...

Carter tried to meet with Islamic Jihad. Thankfully, they turned him down saying "even terrorists have some standards". Well, they didn't really say that, but it's the only reasonable explanation.
