Real Clear Politics ^ | June 16, 2009 | CNN

Posted on 06/16/2009 5:14:08 PM PDT by i88schwartz

CNN: Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday on a visit to Gaza that he had to "hold back tears" when he saw the destruction caused by the deadly campaign Israel waged against Gaza militants in January. Carter was wrapping up a visit to the region during which he met representatives of all sides of the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Americans had to hold back tears from 1977 to 1981 everyday they picked up the morning paper.

I wonder if he was watching after the Israeli’s pulled out of Gaza a few years ago and cried over the destruction the Palestinians did of all the improvements and infastructure that the Israeli’s left behind, intact? I doubt it.

Did Jimmah cry when Gaza terrorists were killing Israelis by launching thousands of rockets into Israel?

Didn’t think so ...

Go lay another wreath at the grave of terrorist Yasser Arafat, Jimmah ... you’re a tool for islamic jihadists

I have to hold back tears when thinking about how Carter acquiesced to criminals, tyrants and dictators and screwed the world up for the next 30 years.

Hmmm. Come to think of it, Barry is picking up that mantle.

After Carter dies I will not fly the flag at half staff.

I will remove it for 30 days rather than acknowledge that miserable SOB.

It is his utter obliviousness to the obvious flint-eyed gangster thugs surrounding him that makes the picture.

I don’t know when he parted company with reality but the process is now total.

Does he really believe he’s still one of the sainted “good guys”?

The Gazans cannot run a greenhouse, much less anything else and have been educated only in Jihad in general and Jihad against Israel in particular.

The Israelis gave them large, expensive, fantastic producing greenhouses several years ago. The Palestinians gutted them instantly.

Carter did not cry over their self-induced ignorance, but that is liberal thinking.

I share your pain, and beg to revise and extend your remarks to cover the period from January 20th, 1981 to the present and beyond.

I’m not going to say it, but you know damned well what I’m thinking.

Carter should stop trying to be Secretary of State.

What was Israel to do, let Hamas bomb them until the end of the world without responding.

If Israel wanted, it could exterminate everyone one the West Bank and Gaza. Have they? Nuff said!!!

Atta boy, Jimmah, hold back them tears bravely now. Them Palasstinians will make a man outta you before you know it. Big boys don’t cry, Jimmah, hold back them there tears, hold ‘em. I know it’s hard, but you can do it. Be brave, Jimmah, be brave.

God broke the mold when He made Jimmah, didn’t he? I didn’t think a mortal man could be this brave.

Not much longer now, Jimmah, just keep your finger in the dike a little longer now. Hold ‘em, Jimmah, hold ‘em.

Speaking of Secretary of State, you know both Clintons are pissed that Carter is in the Mideast practicing his own diplomacy. Carter pulled this crap when Clinton was president, and Carter feels free to pull this stunt now because he knows that Hillary is ineffective because Zero hates her guts.

Carter also played a significant role in helping make a mess out of America, with Clinton doing his part and, now, we have Obambi trying to finish the job.

You think it was bad with Bush. Wait one more year with Obama and we’ll all be crying. Obama is Carter on speed! Obama is the classic narcissist. It’s all about him. He’s always speaking, never doing! He loves to hear himself and to see the adulation of the crowd. He makes me sick! I can’t even watch this self-absorbed egomaniac.
As for Carter, he goes over there as a spokesman for the Palestinians whom he loves so much, and HAMAS tries to kill him. I wonder what goes through that demented mind as he wakes up to the fact that his real enemies are the ones he is trying to support. Long live Israel. It shall never be defeated or driven out because God gave them the land thousands of year ago, BEFORE there ever was a Palestinian.

On any given day, any month of the year, I know, I can come to Freep and get a good laugh from comments. Today is no different. I’m in tears, laughing at the tears you guys are in, from Carter’s tears, and in remembrance of his tearful administration. I’m just bustin a spleen.

Gawd, do we have some witty folks.

It’s very interesting, perhaps symbolic (maybe ironic) that Carter is in the Mideast exactly when Iran is rioting after a fraudulant election. Carter still thinks he’s cool beans because of the Sadat-Begin (sp) handshake. He seems to forget that he has something to do with the current state of affairs in Iran.

What Carter has going for him is that those under 30 have no memory of how bad things were then. His ineptitude has been eclipsed only by the disastrous tenure of Obama.

Carter never had any tears for the Innocent Israelis slaughtered by the muslim throwbacks he has come to love so dearly.

I swear - something in his head slipped a cog when the muslims showed the world what an incompetent, bumbling ass he was as president. He ends up becoming the defender of his abusers and tormentors.

It’s similar to what we see happening with leftists, elitists and the media in America since 9/11.
These people have become the defenders and promoters of the muslims and the Islamic culture responsible for the attack and slaughter of 3,000 innocents on our own soil.
