Jimmy Carter is a former President of the United States of America. No matter how regretful that may be, it is a fact.
Once again it is CNN and the AP that provides the soapbox for this democrat ex-president to make his idiotic statements and accusations against his own country. Now he claims â€œtortureâ€ by the U.S. and accuses Vice-President Cheney of being a â€œmilitantâ€. He also accuses President Bush of making up his own definition of torture. And interviewed on the socialist BBC, Carter calls the Vice-President a â€œmilitant who avoided military serviceâ€.
Â Iâ€™m embarrassed by these absurd statements from the one man who allowed terrorism to gain a foothold in the world, and who then blatantly encouraged it by allowing America to be held hostage for months on end by an old fool in a black robe and turban.
Can this be the same man provided a free education by the taxpayers at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD? The naval officer fawned over by Admiral Rickover? And the same officer I served with in the naval service in the 1950â€™s? Is this laughing stock my fellow Southerner? The same peanut farmer with the toothy smile who walked down Pennsylvania Avenue without an armored car as a new President? Andâ€”oh woeâ€”the same man I voted for in the 1970â€™s when I was a democrat?
