Carter Comments From "The Peanut Gallery"

It looks like Plains, Georgia’s "Mouth of South" is at it again. I’m not sure what to make of Ex-President Jimmy Carter. He is either: senile, been imbibing too much of his brother’s "Billy Beer", anti-America, a cowardly appeaser, or is just plain genuinely stupid.

In a story here, Carter expresses his disdain for America’s detainment of the blood-thirsty, demon possessed terrorists who threaten our very freedom and way of life. In Jimmy’s mind, capturing terrorists and holding them in prison, preventing them from carrying out their violent mission, is just unfair. And causes the terrorists to want to strike out at us even more.

In Jimmy’s world-view, if we would just close down Gitmo, and let those terrorists go, then al Qaeda would quit picking on us leave us and other nations of Western Civilization alone. We just simply have to make sure that we aren’t behaving in a manner that will make the terrorists even angrier with us.

Jimmy wants us to take "the high road" by adopting an appeasement policy toward these terrorists. If we will just be patient and follow Jimmy’s advise, the terrorist will eventually learn the error of their ways and "come on board" with the rest of Western Civilization.

Here is some of Carter’s cowardly drivel from the article:

"I think what's going on in Guantanamo Bay and other places is a disgrace to the U.S.A.," he told a news conference at the Baptist World Alliance's centenary conference in Birmingham, England. "I wouldn't say it's the cause of terrorism, but it has given impetus and excuses to potential terrorists to lash out at our country and justify their despicable acts."

Carter said, however, that terrorist acts could not be justified, and that while Guantanamo "may be an aggravating factor ... it's not the basis of terrorism."

"What has happened at Guantanamo Bay ... does not represent the will of the American people," Carter said Saturday. "I'm embarrassed about it, I think its wrong. I think it does give terrorists an unwarranted excuse to use the despicable means to hurt innocent people."

"I'm very proud to be in a nation that stands so stalwart against terrorism with us," he said. "The people of my country have united our hearts and sympathy for the tragedy that you have suffered from terrorism."

It’s bad enough that Carter was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Apparently, cowardly appeasement is what impresses the Nobel Peace Prize judges, (never mind the fact that appeasers are eventually murdered by the enemy that they cower down to). The case can be made that if it weren’t for Carter’s wrong-headed foreign policy in the Middle East, we wouldn’t be facing the extremist jihad that we are facing from these crazed demons in the first place.

For Jimmy Carter to have the audacity to extend his praise to Great Britain for standing with us in the war against terrorism is nauseating.

Who does he think he's fooling?

Does Jimmy really think that he can get away with putting on a "pep rally" to Britain in the war against terrorism with one side of his mouth, while he is busy criticizing Great Britain and America’s actions against terrorism on the other side of his mouth?

In the immortal words of good old Bugs Bunny: "What a maroon!"

Jimmy, why don't you do your fellow countrymen a favor. Retire already. Just content yourself with eating your boiled peanuts on your front porch and leave the task of saving America to those in power now. You had your shot at it. We are just trying to clean up the mess that you made.

Carter should go down in history as "The Great Appeaser". What an idiot.
