Jimmy Carter: American Revolution Was 'Unnecessary'
Recently we described Jimmy Carter as the worst president of the past 100 years. We apologize.
He's the worst president ever.
In trying to compare the American Revolution to the war in Iraq, here's what the jug-headed Georgian said to fellow Democrat Chris Matthews on "Hardball" Monday night, according to MSNBC's own transcript:
'A Little More Sensitive'
Well, one parallel is that the Revolutionary War, more than any other war up until recently, has been the most bloody war we've fought. I think another parallel is that in some ways the Revolutionary War could have been avoided. It was an unnecessary war.
Had the British Parliament been a little more sensitive to the colonials' really legitimate complaints and requests the war could have been avoided completely, and of course now we would have been a free country now as is Canada and India and Australia, having gotten our independence in a nonviolent way.
I think in many ways the British were very misled in going to war against America and in trying to enforce their will on people who were quite different from them at the time.
Does the catastrophic ex-prez really think the war in Iraq is bloodier than the Vietnam War, the Korean War, World War II, World War I, the Civil War ...?
Note to Jimmy: Canada did not begin to gain independence until 1867. Australia did not receive partial independence as a commonwealth until 1901. India did not gain independence until 1947, and all the Indians who were killed by the British would hardly describe their deaths as "nonviolent."
Carter has no sense of history and human nature, nor does he understand the first thing about politics. Nuff said.
George Washington: Jimmey Carter was unnecessary.
"Recently we described Jimmy Carter as the worst president of the past 100 years. We apologize. He's the worst president ever."
LOL. No argument from me.
I'm tellin' ya, the man has peanuts for brains.
"What a maroon!"
"Jimmy" needs to pass on to the "other side".
All the Brit "Guardian" readers should be sending their e-mails to the traitor peanut farmer since they think alike
"Had the British Parliament been a little more sensitive to the colonials' really legitimate complaints and requests the war could have been avoided"
My nomination for moron of the millenium is Jimmy Carter. I want him to rewrite the history of the world, with a 'more sensitive' Attila, Hitler, etc., and let's throw in DeSade and Dracula while we're at it. Can any grown man, especially an Annapolis graduate, really spew this garbage with a straight face? Maybe this is Carter's idea of humor???
Now, where was Carter when John Adams really needed him?
Rabid Rabbit placemarker.
didn't he get a nobel prize for giving away our canal? so much for national security, who runs both ends of the canal? Chicoms anyone?
John Kerry and Carter share the pacifist view that war is never necessary. That's why we had American hostages held in Iran for 444 days during Carter's presidency. Elect a weak-on-defense candidate like Kerry and he'll be taken as seriously by the terrorists as Carter was by the Iranians. I'm surprised that the Bush campaign hasn't compared Kerry to Carter. I think it would be very effective.
Jimmy Carter hates America so much.
He was the most dangerous president of the last century and still a very dangerous former president.
One can only hope that God soon decides it is past time for Jimmy to fertilize the peanut crops in Georgia.
I see Carter's finally polished off that last case of Billy Beer. What an idiot.
I actually voted for this man in '76. I was young and stupid (I had JUST reached voting age, first election I ever voted in), I was away at college so I was out of touch, and he was going to carry Georgia regardless of whether I voted for him or not (by over 500,000 votes), but the mere thought of my idiocy makes me turn hot and cold all over and swear under my breath.
Mea maxima culpa, y'all. I had no idea what I was doing.
