Jimmuh Carter proves once again why he's an idiot.

Carter has no sense of history and human nature, nor does he understand the first thing about politics. Nuff said.

"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.

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.

It wasn't even the bloodiest war of the US's first 100 years. That was the Civil War.

"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???

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.

OMG, I am so ashamed.

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.

I am a 12th cousin of George Washington and I think he, Reagan, and Bush are the best presidents we have ever had. The more I learn about Washington the more I admire him. And the more I learn about Carter the less I respect him~

BUSH CHENEY VICTORY!!!!!!

I remember turning on the radio a few years ago and work and they were interviewing him. I did not know it was him at first, as it honestly sounded like someone who was a recovering alcoholic (dealt with a few), really mumbling and disconcerted. Then they said it was Carter and I thought he was on his death bed or something.

A couple weeks ago, I saw the book "The Real Jimmy Carter" at Amazon.com in the used book section for only $2.79. So, I figured, being that cheap, I might as well buy it. With all the attention to the important Presidential election going on, I set the book aside to read later.

After hearing his asinine comments to Chirssie, I have to read it NOW.

This man hates the United States.

I just about had a car accident reading this, and I'm in my office 60 feet from the nearest vehicle.

.....more than any other war up until recently, has been the most bloody war we've fought...

The actual number of people killed in the Revolutionary war was less than 6,000.

I too voted for Jimmy Carter as a young and wide - eyed idealist... What a mistake.

Do you remember right after the final count, the camera switched to Ga. and Jimmy's brother swilling a brew on somebody's porch down there. The folks I was with, to a man, uncontrollably laughed (belly laughed) out loud and snorted their drinks through their noses.. the instant the guy started talking. I myself almost peed my pants laughing.

Hmmm, if Bill Clinton ever has anything named after him, maybe it would be "Clinton Condoms", ribbed for her pleasure?

I wonder how many issues of Playboy and Penthouse are stored in Clinton's Library.

"I see Carter's finally polished off that last case of Billy Beer."

Combat casualies from the American Revolution: 4435 killed, 6188 wounded.

My first thought reading the story: "Is Carter drunk?"
