smackdown: the carter vs. bush edition

If I had former President Jimmy Carter’s dubious record of achievement, I would be more careful about calling another President’s administration the “worst in history”. Someone might actually call him on it, like Deputy WH Press Secretary Tony Fratto, who said, ” I think it’s sad that President Carter’s reckless personal criticism is out there…I think it’s unfortunate. And I think he is proving to be increasingly irrelevant with these kinds of comments.” Indeed. He’s entitled to his opinion, but to suggest that Carter would have had more of a clue on foreign policy (especially Iraq) is to totally ignore his history. He might not want to give us an opportunity to look at it again. I’m just sayin’.

  1. I like how, just like J. Kerry’s “stuk n’ Irak comment, he’s backing off like the good little libtard he is. Typical.

  2. Too bad Carter felt intimidated into backing off his statement because it’s absolutely true. Bush is the worse president in American history. I would go further and say I hope he is the worse possible president, because I would hate to think that someone could be elected who would be even worse. But Carter backed off. He is, after all, 80 or more. Right? A little frail, perhaps. But his judgment is still more sound than most Republicans half his age.

  3. You can call Iraq a disaster and still not believe that Bush 43 is the worst president in American history. While I’ve been disappointed with some of his decisions and frustrated by his unwillingness/inability to defend them to the country, I still believe that Dubya has done some good things during his time in office. The comparison between Dubya’s record and Carter’s isn’t in Carter’s favor (at least in my opinion), so I’m surprised that he really wants to make this argument.
