"'Grieved' that U.S. now approaching 'zero influence'"
Jimmy Carter knows who to blame for the worlds troubles: the United States.
Speaking Sunday in San Francisco, the former president told the Commonwealth Club,Our country is now looked upon as the foremost war-like nation on earth, and there is almost a complete dearth now of commitment of America to negotiate differences with others.
Its just the latest slam on the U.S. Hes also blasted staunch allies Britain and Israel, while offering words of support for America-haters Iran, Hamas, Saddam Hussein and North Korea.

You know you’ve been a long time FReeper if you remember the times when posts on the subject of Jimmuh started with the words: “Jimmy Carter is a decent man. But...”
How on earth did he get so stupid.
I cannot believe he is from my part of the country.
I'll tell you a secret: When Carter became president, I stopped eating peanuts. Twelve months later, I qualified for Mensa.
Remember: FIRST dance, THEN pee.
I used to think that Jimmy Carter was a well-meaning fool. I no longer think he’s well-meaning.
America is being PLAYED.... thats right YOU ARE BEING PLAYED.. (( YOU ))..
Carter, Obama, Romney, McLAim, Boehner, McConnell most of “them” are playing you..
Seems like it’s been going on for decades..
Most of America is somebody’s “bitch”.. i.e. the majority..
Will hard for most to admit they are somebody’s DOOFUS..
Most I think WILL NOT..
well I live on peanut butter
No shocker there eh
