A clown actually has some type of reason for being. Jimmy doesn't even have a reason for speaking out. Jimmy is such a failure and embarrassed himself so many times, I sometimes wonder if one of us has paid him off to keep talking.

Nobel Peace Prize winner and former U.S. President Jimmy Carter greets a torchlight procession from the balcony of the Grand Hotel in downtown Oslo, December 10, 2002. Carter appeared prior to the Norwegian Nobel Committee's Banquet on Tuesday evening.

Norwegian peaceniks have got him all puffy.

I'm not worried too much because Jimmah has no power this time around. Bush can step on him like a bug.

Does anyone really think Israel would have anything to do with Jimmah?

The smartest thing Israel could do is ask Jimmah to negotiate between different Palestinian groups, to see what they would be willing to accept as a permanent settlement. Once he has HAMAS and Al-Aksa nailed down, then it would be worthwhile for Israel to negotiate with them.

In other words, they should give Jimmah an impossible task which he will probably fail at, and if he succeeds, it will only benefit Israel.

"'We would go immediately and with great alacrity,' the Nobel Peace Prize laureate said during a speech to students at the University of Uppsala.

However, Carter gave no indication he had been asked to mediate."

LOL

(alacrity. That's a pretty big word.)

Notice that two of the biggest disgraces to this nation will not go away. Not only do we have to thank some American idiots for giving us eight years of the Clintons, but, in by doing so, giving this grinning creep an opportunity to come out from under his toolbox.

"Jimmy Carter offers to mediate peace talks between Israel and Palestinians..."

This would only mean no more Israel.

The poor cracker either is to stupid to realize that Palistinians want Israel exterminated or else he's too stubborn to admit it.

His record in foreign affairs is a total flop.

Maybe Jimmah thinks he can become the voice of the Democrat party?
After all, the Democratic party is all about failing, something in which Jimmy Carter has a Master's Degree in!!!

Now I'm utterly confuuuuuuused! What's there to negotiate, there is peace! The newspapers said yesterday that he had received his Nobel Prize for brokering peace in the Middle East way back in 1979. Or is it me, and peace is an ongoing, neverending project for gubmint experts, sort of like the War on Poverty and the War on Drugs? Oh, I see now, my mistake, in 1979 Jimmuh declared the War on Peace permanent gubmint program!

Coming off of winning the Nobel Peace Prize, and as a former US President, Carter is in a unique position to try and mediate an end to at least some of the conflict that is going on.

He has credibility with the major players and represents a chance at hope for two peoples who are getting tired of slaughter.

In any event, he can't make the situation any worse. So far as I see the only real reason that FReepers are against the idea is because he used to have a "D" in front of his name.

Put another way: Would you be so opposed if Ronald Reagan regained his mental health and made a similar offer?

Right...like when he demanded that the Shah step down in Iran, an action which plunged Iran into the most anti-human-rights area in the world.

Or how about him going over to North Korea for clinton in 1994, and helping the idea that North Korea won't develop nuclear weapons if we build them nuclear reactors.

Also, how about the rampant inflation and unemployment during jimmy carter's presidency?

On the SAME day that this old fool was getting his lobbied for Putlizer Peace Prize, a North Korean ship was intercepted taking MISSLES to the Middle East. (this is the SAME North Korea that Jimmy Carter told us all had promised HIM that they would NOT make nuclear weapons). The LAST person the WORLD needs to be a mediator is a fool who BELEVES what thug dictators who STARVE their own people will promise.

To: Impeach the Boy
By now everyone’s heard about Jimmy Carter’s latest spasm of brilliance. Criticizing President Bush's "axis of evil" phrase as "overly simplistic and counterproductive," Carter said he thought it would take years to repair the damage done by that statement. Many folks smarter than me have already pointed out the obvious lunacy of the biggest presidential failure of the last century chastising any president, but I feel the burning need to get something off my chest.

I hate Jimmy Carter. And not only that, but I hate his wife and his freakish daughter, too. All things Carter repulse me. I realize hate is a strong word that should not be used lightly. But after careful consideration I’ve come to the conclusion that it is the only honest assessment I can make about the man.

Like many Americans, particularly we Southerners, I’ve tried to convince myself that while his utter failure as president is without question, Jimmy Carter is a good and decent man who found his true calling as an elder statesman. In part because he is a Southerner, and in part because he is a seemingly devout Christian, many of us have tried to rationalize, compartmentalize if you will, our feelings about Jimmy Carter: President Carter, bad. Ex-president Carter, good and decent. No more. I’ve had all I can stand of this pompous asshole and I will never again qualify my hatred for him.

The fact of the matter is, I find him indecent and the complete opposite of a statesman. A statesman is one who shows wisdom, skill, and vision when dealing with public issues. Clearly Jimmy Carter is no statesman.

Liberals always chide conservatives about being morally superior, but I can think of no couple that fancies themselves the moral superiors of the rest of us more than Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter. I have noticed this for years. Whenever I see the Carters interact with other first families – like at an inauguration or national day of mourning – their condescension cannot be disguised.

Rosalynn appears to be in a continual, lifelong nervous breakdown. This poor woman makes Kitty Dukakis look sane, yet she finds the strength to look down on the scoundrels that surround her at every turn. These two are arrogant and sanctimonious and I have grown weary of their moral superiority show. I don’t know what makes them think they are better than the rest of us.

I guess it’s because they have plenty of free time to build crappy looking row houses in neighborhoods whose residents would rather not to see their property values plummet (they paid for their houses, don't ya know). Building homes for the poor is a great thing,

I suppose, but is it consistent with their morality to sit silent while Bill Clinton runs amuck in the White House, speaking out against him only when it is too late to do a damn thing about it?

It was about this same time last year when Jimmy went public with his scathing attacks against the Clinton pardons. This conceited asshole knew Clinton was joke from the beginning but did nothing to warn America about him until it was too late.

He’s known about every Clinton scandal from Bill’s days as governor, and while it’s obvious he doesn’t really like the Clinton’s, he never said a negative word about them when it would have mattered (e.g., 1992 at 1996). And when the Lewinsky dress hit the fan, Carter’s admonitions were tepid at best. When it came to denouncing Bill Clinton, whose interests was Jimmy Carter protecting? America’s or Jimmy Carter’s?

So excuse me if I don’t get all misty eyed about the house-raising, failed ex-president from Plains when he imparts words of wisdom for President Bush. Frankly, I think he needs to spend a little less time telling the rest of us how to behave, think, and feel, and a little more time lusting in his heart.

For the only thing that Jimmy Carter hasn’t failed at is sucking. When it comes to sucking, Jimmy Carter has no equal.

What? You want me to defend Carter's Presidency? All I'm saying is that he's in a good position to do some good in the Middle East now.

Or how about him going over to North Korea for clinton in 1994, and helping the idea that North Korea won't develop nuclear weapons if we build them nuclear reactors.

That was actually a better deal long-term for the N. Koreans. I hardly see how the shortsightedness of Kim Jong-il can be blamed on Carter.

What? You want me to defend Carter's Presidency? All I'm saying is that he's in a good position to do some good in the Middle East now. How is he in a good position? Just 8 years ago he made a deal which involved trusting NORTH KOREA not to develop nuclear weapons and was completely, horribly incorrect in the use of judgement. That was actually a better deal long-term for the N. Koreans. I hardly see how the shortsightedness of Kim Jong-il can be blamed on Carter. Carter TRUSTED Kim! That's the thing! He has no sense of judgement that is worth any kind of respect. Of course that was a good deal for NK. "Hey guys, they want to build nuclear reactors for us if we promise not to develop nuclear weapons...I know, let's do it behind their backs and save some money!"

Yes, so does President Bush through intermediaries in Syria and Iran.

You can't mediate with terrorists!

The IRA will tell you differently.

The terrorists don't want peace!!!

Debateable.

The terrorists want to terrorize!!!!

Yes, but ask yourself why they terrorize and what is the most efficient way to deal with the problem.

You won't stop terrorists unless you KILL THEM DEAD IN THEIR TRACKS.

That's one way, but you can't kill every angry young man in the Arab world. Eventually you must make peace and that's where mediation comes in.

You rentire post is complete rubbish. There is no peace to negotiate. Only a war for Israel to win. By putting his sorry nose where it don't belong, Carter would only to serve to help the Islamo-fascists. Who the hell's side are you on? I know whose side Carter is on-the liberal loser anti-american American.
