Worst President in the last 50 years

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

Our Dear Leader hasn’t finished his first term yet, so I’m leaving him out of the running this time.

This leaves us with the clear obvious choice, that noted Anti-Semite, James Earl Carter IV.

The 39th President of the United States, serving from 1977 to 1981 and without a doubt, the worst President of the latter half of the 20th Century and the last fifty years as well.

Well, this idiot has decided to he wants to prove that he is a hypocritical racist by opening his mouth in public again.

Let us review some of Carter’s embarrassing history.

14 ex-staff members refused to be associated with Carter after he published a clearly racist book.

Fourteen members of an advisory board at the Carter Center resigned today, concluding they could “no longer in good conscience continue to serve” following publication of former President Jimmy Carter‘s controversial book, “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid.”

“It seems that you have turned to a world of advocacy, including even malicious advocacy,” the board members wrote in a letter, a copy of which was reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. “We can no longer endorse your strident and uncompromising position. This is not the Carter Center or Jimmy Carter we came to respect and support. Therefore it is with sadness and regret that we hereby tender our resignation from the Board of Councilors of the Carter Center effective immediately.”

Victor Davis Hanson reminds of us of Carter’s worst policy failure:

“In his dotage, Carter is proving once again that he is as malicious and mean-spirited a public figure as he is historically ignorant. And for all his sanctimonious Christian veneer, and fly-fishing, ‘aw shucks blue-jeans image, he can’t hide an essentially ungracious and unkind soul. . . . Carter’s Waterloo, of course was the Iranian hostage crisis. It was not just that his gutting of the military helped to explain the rescue disaster. Far more importantly, we can chart the rise of radical political Islam with the storming of the American embassy in Teheran and the impotent response of Jimmy Carter.”

As a noted Anti-Semite, former President Carter should not be trying to lecture others on the topic of racism, but then he is, and clearly always has been, grossly incompetent.
