Ex-President Jimmy Carter Stating GWB has Brough US “International Disgrace” … Pot meet Kettle


Ex-Present, Jimmy Carter referring to anyone as a disgrace is nothing short of comical. After PotKettlewhat was four of the most failed years of any one President. You dare criticize anyone after what you did to the United States of America and its perception abroad.. How about the fact that you were a “Domestic” disgrace and made the USA an international embarrassment? Talk about the “pot to the kettle” making comments.

Hey Jimmy, go build a house and make yourself useful. You were a public embarrassment to this country. The malaise that you created during your 4 years in office in America was criminal.

RENO, Nev. Former President Carter is urging northern Nevadans to elect his son, Jack, to the Senate to help combat a Bush administration he says has brought “international disgrace” to the country.


(Mr. Misery Index)

The former president told a crowd of about 300 on the campus of the University of Nevada, Reno today that the nation is more sharply divided that it has ever been as a result of Bush’s policies. (KESQ)

By the way, only 300 students actually listened. Talk about irrelevant. Don’t forget Jimmy …Spinal Tap needed to remind others too that “Spinal Tap always goes before Puppet Show on the billboard”. Carter, do you really think every one has forgotten about your Presidency. Even though most of us wish we could. Does the “misery index” mean anything to you?


During the Presidential campaign of 1976, Democratic candidate, Jimmy Carter, made frequent references to the Misery Index, which by the summer of 1976 was at 13.57%.

Carter stated that no man responsible for giving a country a misery index that high, had a right to even ask to be President.

Carter won the 1976 election. However, by 1980, when President Carter was running for re-election against Ronald Reagan, the Misery Index had reached an all-time high of 21.98%. Carter lost the election to Reagan. During the Reagan era, the index averaged 12.19 with a 7.70 low.

You also dare talk about an ill-advised invasion. Are you joking? You have some nerve. Lets take a look at some other stellar events of your Administration.

He says never before has the United States had a policy of pre-emptive war, as was the case in what he called an “ill-advised invasion” of Iraq.

      It would be much better for the country if we had two viable political parties. The Democrats in recent years have seemed to look for the “quick fix” outsider, like Carter, like Clinton. Carter was a good man, but a lousy, weak President. Clinton was a liar, but he did have some domestic success. Foreign policy wise, he was also weak and indecisive. Now we have a stampede to the Republican party, whose three word slogans have mesmerized the Great Unwashed: “He’s a TAX AND SPEND Liberal.” “He wants to CUT AND RUN!” Bush gets in, gives the ulta-rich a $70 billion present by repealing the estate tax, and lets the oil companies sell us $3 / gallon gas. We need another political party. I’ve just come to expect little from the Democrats.

    2. Scared Monkeys on September 29th, 2006 12:27 pm

      David r … many valid points.

      Do you think Clinton would have had any domestic success if it were not for the fictitious “dot com” market propped up by lies and scandals that we all learned about after he was out of office?

      The stock market that has been teetering with all time highs recently is being compared to one that was a fraud.


      The American people would be better served is there were mandatory term limits for Representatives and Senators. The power of the incumbency is too great in most cases.

      I hardly think our forefathers meant for these jobs to be permanent.

    3. Miss-Underestimated on September 29th, 2006 12:36 pm

      Former Presidents should just shut up. Go after your humanitarian/civil causes, but just shut up.
      Or be prepared for the boomarang effect.

      R I agree on term limits and should trickle all the way down the political ladder to local highwat commisioners etc.

      Think of the retirement funds these people accumulate, it will make a working person sick.

    4. Mortella on September 29th, 2006 1:04 pm

      Does anyone actually remember what the interest rate was when Carter was in office? I remember a bank offering us a loan at 22% which was prime plus maybe five which would have it at around 15% which sounds right to me.

      The Gambino brothers were charging about the same rate as the Federal Reserve under Carter! Talk about a misery index!

      And he is a disgrace and embarrassment to the country right now with his bashing ways. Yes, Carter needs to just shut up and do it now! I don’t think he is that big of an expert of foreign policies and isn’t he one of the ones claiming the Chavez election was legitimate? Yeah, sure it was. Vote for Hugo or wish you had! Like Carter would know what he was watching anyway!

      Jimmy, go back to Georgia and mind your own for a change. You didn’t know what you were doing when you were president (see hostage situation he let get out of hand and drag on forever even crashing Delta Force helicopters) and you sure don’t know now!

    5. robots on September 29th, 2006 1:16 pm

      go grow some peanuts JIMMY
      geeeeesh, what a fool

      WHAT A COUNTRY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Carter Memories

      No one remembers his tyrants on tv blaming the recession on Americans spending too much money?????? Told us to stop spending money?????? Interest rates were thru the ceiling, but Mortella people who had IRA’S claim he was the best president….They forget the balance of economics, stupid if you getting paid high rates that means someone is paying high rates….

      That defys economics….How much was gas then? Then remember the fiasco in Lybia? Maggie had to show him how to deal with terrorist. They released our prisioners when Regan won.

      Jimmy Carter is a great humanitarian, and that is where he should concentrate his efforts…

    8. Scared Monkeys on September 29th, 2006 1:53 pm

      Ask some of the 1980 Olympic athletes what they think of Jimmy Carter.

      There is not anything that didn’t go wrong under his Presidency. If he was President now, we would all be praying to Mecca at gunpoint.

      Please Jimmy, go do some good and build homes for people. Just shut up when it comes to politics.

      How embarassing and gutless was he that the minute Reagan was voted in the Iranians released the hostages becauase they knew Ronnie was about to “unleash hell” on them.


    9. blah on September 29th, 2006 2:16 pm

      Seems that all of the Dems have finally gone over the edge, lost their minds completely, totally insane. If you dont believe me, just take a look at the following link:


      and just when you thought Al Gore couldnt get any more nuttier.

    10. www.ayaan.info on September 29th, 2006 3:21 pm

      ach,Holland had Ayaan in parliament. Ayaan made an infamous statement about the great profet of the Islam. With that Ayaan caused Dutch bussiness over nine hundred billion dollars of loss of bussiness, with Saoud, Iran, Lybia, etc. The Dutch politicians and CEO do not admit to care. Themselves they have already gathered abundant income. Now Ayaan is at the AEI, the American Enterprise Institue. Good for USA bussiness? And what if Ayaan is prosecuted and convicted?

    11. Ramlady on September 29th, 2006 3:49 pm

      david r, first of all, we’ve been down this road already. The President, Democrat or Republican, does NOT LET the oil companies sell us $3 a gallon gas. Read previous posts please. You are correct that when either party gets in power, they will do whatever it takes to stay there, and usually they accomplish very little for the American people. Politics is the name of the game, and both parties play it while the American public is left frustrated that nothing gets done. Next, the estate tax is a “death tax” no matter what the Democrats want to call it. And guess what? The ultra-rich that you refer to (Kennedys and Kerrys for example) do NOT pay any estate tax. It is known that they keep their money in off-shore accounts where there is no tax, and they are allowed to pass on their wealth to the next generation with no impact. All of the super-rich know how to do this, and it is not illegal. The ones who pay this “death tax” are those who have worked hard all their lives at a business and were successful and wish to pass it on to their children. Or someone who has owned a large amount of land (farmers, ranchers) who certainly were never “rich” during their lifetime, but after they die, their children discover the value of the land their loved one worked so hard for has risen dramatically in value and easily falls into “death tax” range. I assume you feel this is fair for people to not be able to pass along their wealth they have worked hard to accumulate to their children. I suppose the government deserves it more than they do? As I already stated, it doesn’t affect the super-rich that you refer to because they have accountants and tax attorneys they pay large sums to to figure out how to avoid paying the tax.

    12. Ramlady on September 29th, 2006 4:00 pm

      Mortella and Miss-U: True. And does anyone remember during the Carter administration when Islamic radicals overthrew the Shah of Iran and the Ayatollah Khomeini came to power, the one responsible for taking Americans hostage at the U.S. embassy and holding them for 444 days? Previous administrations had supported the Shah because he had been pro-democracy and pro-American. When Carter was elected in 1976, it was his decision to cut off support of the Shah that led to his being overthrown by Khomeini which has also set the stage for what is happening in the Middle East today. Islamic radicalism. Today the president of Iran, according to some of the American hostages, was one of those who were holding them hostage in Iran 1979-1980. Who knows what the Middle East would look like today if the Shah had remained in power and democracy had spread in that region instead of what we have today.

    13. Maggie on September 29th, 2006 5:00 pm

      I met Jimmy Carter and his wife in an Airport when he was running for office ,,he and his wife.. in Illinois. I couldn’t believe how tiny his wife is in real life. Not a fan of his though.

    14. realtruth on September 29th, 2006 9:11 pm

      well SM – george bush isn’t exactly an angel; george jr was in charge of the savings and loans association when they all failed, but daddy saved his son’s butt and it was swept under the rug just like he did natalee. george has been a pot-metal president.

      and who’d george make homeland security chief – a horse lawyer; and who’d george make ambassador to france – a cow poke who couldn’t speak french and knew nothing of their national hertiage.

      at jimmy grew peanuts that you can buy and not cow paddies that still leave a stence in air

    15. realtruth on September 29th, 2006 9:34 pm

      and ramlady – george sr admin cia hired and trained the taliban which is now al-quida for the war russia had in afghanastan and failed to pay them – so that’s one of the many reasons they hate us so much. secondly the saudi gov’t fearful of us oil companies taking over instiagted hatred towards americans in their schooling and religions. but the democrats tend to hire and put ambassadors in that know the culture and the language; where the republicians put into foreign office whoever donates the most money.

    16. Rob on September 30th, 2006 2:33 am

      Carter had it all right on the money. I saw him on Larry King and I couldn’t agree with him more.

    17. Scrapiron on September 30th, 2006 2:48 am

      If the old saying “like father, like son’ hold true in the Dimmy Carter family there will be some sorry folks in NV if that idiot is elected. Isn’t there anyone in Nv with a brain available to run for the Senate or is Dirty Harry Reid the boss of criminals and won’t let anyone with a brain run?
      Was on my way to Iran as an advisor when that sorry SOS sold out the embassy personel and left them for 444 days. I’ve wanted to see an elephant step on his head ever since.

    18. Ramlady on September 30th, 2006 5:28 am

      #15; yeah, those fine, upstanding Democrats; money doesn’t buy their influence, does it? Carter was portrayed as a nice little peanut farmer from Georgia when actually he earned his living as a nuclear scientist. How many people actually know that? He was the most failed president of the 20th century, and some of his blunders are still being felt today and will be for a long time to come. You should change your name from “realtruth” to “real b.s.” and get a real clue.

    19. Scared Monkeys on September 30th, 2006 7:22 am

      [...] What is up with these ex-Democratic Presidents and ex-Presidential candidates lately. Have they all but lost their minds? They have at last forgot about their own pasts.  Rather convenient. The rants of Al Gore and global warming make it a must see event if if actually runs for the Democratic nomination for the presidency in 2008. Al, please run … I beg you. Gore seems to keep forgetting about his 1998 run for the presidency. [...]

    20. realtruth on September 30th, 2006 4:38 pm

      #18 – you’re a piece of humor

    21. Ramlady on October 1st, 2006 1:51 am

      #20; Well I do what I can. I’m sure you only come here for the entertainment value, but shouldn’t you be getting back to your liberal, nutcase, George Soros-sponsored blogs where you will feel more at home? I’m sure they are needing your input right about now on their latest screwy, fairy-tale conspiracy theory. Keep watching for those Fox-hired assassins on the rooftops! HA! LOL! You have GOT to be mixing something with that Kool-Aid; I’m just not sure what….

    22. SUPER DAVE on October 2nd, 2006 4:51 pm

      put all the presidents in a pot and what dou you have ?
      a pot full of presidents. none are better than the other. they have one goal, the power and the money. Junior Bush can;t open his mouth without spewing distrust. look at the pitiful shape this country is in. Clinton couldn’t keep his weenie in his pants, neither could LBJ nor the Kennedys. Reagan was lost in hollywood. because of Bush, we are hated more now than ever in history.

    23. Ramlady on October 2nd, 2006 8:39 pm

      #22; well, maybe we would be more loved worldwide if we became like the rest of the world? If there is NO ONE fit to hold the office of President who would actually want it, what a sad commentary on our society. Maybe you could run for the office yourself?

    24. SUPER DAVE on October 3rd, 2006 9:45 am

      ramlady, if this makes you mad, it must have hit home ! you know it’s true. tell me that you would feel safe living in a neighborhood full of towel heads.or a neighborhood full of illegal aliens.

    25. Ramlady on October 3rd, 2006 10:51 am

      #24; Is something wrong with your reading comprehension? Who said they wanted to live in an unsafe neighborhood? My comment #23 was in reply to your comment #22 that Bush is the reason the world hates us. My statement that maybe we would be more loved worldwide if we became like other countries was called “sarcasm.” I don’t know about you, but I feel safer knowing the person in the Oval Office is willing to stand up to terrorism rather than hide under the desk like the last administration. But anyway, get your Fruit of the Looms out of a twist; I’m sure we’ll get to see how President Hillarious Clinton would handle things after the next election.

    26. SUPER DAVE on October 4th, 2006 3:48 pm

      #24, i didn’t know you paid so much attention to my under wear. i seriously doubt hillary will be elected, although i would be interested to see how a woman would run this country, or to repair the damage done.
      it would be sort of like having a queen .
      i was referring to the large number of illegals in the U S.
      under the Bush admin. these same illegals will be sharing our social security benefits even though they have not paid in a dime of it !they can have a baby here and it costs them nothing, but would cost a taxpayer in the U S
      close to 10,000.00 . Bush would give them amnesty and our retirement if it benefitted him.

    27. Ramlady on October 4th, 2006 9:41 pm

      #26; You just seem like a Fruit of the Loom sort of guy I guess. Not that I would know, or want to. In case you haven’t been paying attention, Bush is catching hell from his conservative base over the illegal immigration problem. He didn’t start it; he just hasn’t done anything about it. Neither did Clinton or anybody before Clinton. It is a problem of BOTH parties. Democrats want their vote; Republicans want their cheap labor because it is good for business. Simple as that. If you had watched the news, you would know that the House plan to deal with illegal immigration was a good, tough plan. The Senate plan had no teeth and closely mirrored Bush’s plan. You’re dreaming if you think Hillarious or any other Democrat in the Oval Office would do one single thing to control illegals coming into our country. I think it is a shame we can’t get either party to realize the damage to our country that is being done by illegal immigration, and the whole idea of Homeland Security is a joke IMO if we refuse to secure our borders. So there you go; no blind loyalty here. Just fair and balanced. Can you say the same?
