What's the Worst that Could Happen?

Electing as the next U.S. President, an American apologist and foreign policy lightweight?
Answer: After his or her four disastrous years in the White House,
they go right on speaking, as if they are still significant.

political cartoon of IBD's Pulitzer Prize Winner, Michael Ramirez.

From Iran's al Alam news wire:

GAZA, April 20--A Hamas leader said Sunday that former US President Jimmy Carter had laid seal of approval on political legitimacy of Hamas as a group coming to power on public votes.

"Carter knows pretty well that the US has become bete noire of the world. It creates enemies rather than making friends. So, the US politicians are now mostly thinking of ways to appease Israel. Carter wants to improve the US image through listening to the other party's words."

"Carter's tour of the region and his meetings with Hamas leaders can be interpreted as a sign that Hamas is now a key player in regional equations -- something that can not be easily taken for granted," Ismail Al-Ashqar, who is also the head of the Interior and Security Committee in the Palestinian Legislative Council, said.

P.S.-- Hamas leader endorses Barry Hussein, compares him to "noble American" Carter.

I had the great displeasure of being in uniform under that asshats reign as President. It was the only time in over 20 years, that we were at one point unsure as to wither or not we would be getting paid. (We did, but those on the Federal payroll, missed one check, including my ex wife.) It was a good thing we had enough to make the mortgage payment that month.

He was (and continues to be) a piss poor excuse for a living breathing person (I can not in good conscience call him a "human being".), although calling him an oxygen stealer may be more apropos.

Now, if we could conveniently forget to let him back INTO the country his words and actions so oft-times betray ... Aye, now that would be a fine example of karma in action!

Glad to see you smile, BDP-

Guy, you have my great respect. And you're right about the O2 thief!
He's always been there for the Islamo fascists, being the leader who opened the door for Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini.
OH, That turned out well, didn't it?

I love the cartoon! Jackass, indeed.

"Oxygen stealer." Ha. I'm going to shamelessly steal that and use it.

Jimmy Carter has never met a terrorist he couldn't support.
