Quote of the day

posted at 11:00 pm on April 15, 2008 by Allahpundit

“In a democracy, I realize you don’t need to talk to the top leader to know how the country feels. When I go to a dictatorship, I only have to talk to one person and that’s the dictator, because he speaks for all the people.”

Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy! Shut the F up.

Oh!!!…NOW, I see.

I wish Barry would’ve explained HIS reasoning as well as this.

oh wait…I’m sittin’ on my dead ass during the election…nevermind

That says it all. He’s insane.

4shoes on April 16, 2008 at 10:52 AM

That’s the kind of guy he is.

alphie on April 16, 2008 at 2:59 AM

No, actually this is the kind of guy he is. If you were going to meet with the terrorist captors of an Israeli citizen, you wouldn’t probably greet those terrorists with a hug.

Good God!! I had to read that three times to make sure I was reading it right. Even though it came from Jimmuh’s mouth, I thought surely I was mis-reading it. I suppose I should have known better.

Idiocy has a face.

Carter might have a point. When he was President, foreign diplomats who talked to the top leader (Carter) didn’t know how the country felt. They found out in November 1980.

Does Carter really believe that Kim Jong-Il speaks for all North Koreans?

If Carter visits Ahmadinejad, we’ll have to ask Ahmadinejad for a repeat performance. Instead of kidnapping our diplomats, this time he should kidnap Carter.

Why? Who would bother to pay a ransom for him?

Here’s a better quote of the day from my daily Patriot Post:

“It is the madness of folly, to expect mercy from those who have refused to do justice; and even mercy, where conquest is the object, is only a trick of war; the cunning of the fox is as murderous as the violence of the wolf.” —Thomas Paine

No wonder that rabbit went after him.

Jimmy Carter is an underwear stain on the body politic.

Merovign on April 16, 2008 at 1:49 PM

No Sir! When you go to a dictatorship as a former POTUS you give that dictator credibility and convey the message that the United States of America supports dictators. You are nothing but a political pawn for those that oppress humanity. Distinctions like “private citizen” are lost on the oppressed. You, Mr. Carter have shamed this nation and yourself by your actions. How dare you!!!

This comment rivals Mr. Carter’s statement that “Hamas should stop suicide bombings WHEN Israel agrees to the withdrawal to the preJune 1967 borders”.
I think Carter later blamed that on a “clerical error”.

Look on the bright side – people can look at this fool, and see where Obama will be 30 years from now – – – – If we let him.

Think_b4_speaking on April 16, 2008 at 2:14 PM

Hey Jimmah…go build a house.

Good point, but I think Barry O. (if he wins) would be acting like Jimmah C. from day 1.

what sad and foolish ex-president of the united states of america.
wow, maybe we should be more careful.

jimmer on April 16, 2008 at 7:12 PM

If there is ever a Stupidity Hall of Fame, Carter gets his own wing!

Gatordoug on April 16, 2008 at 9:31 PM

Hmmm, that must be the corollary of Bin Laden’s argument that American civilians are legitimate targets because we elect our government officials.

Trainwreck on April 16, 2008 at 10:11 PM

A little late on this but I don’t think any Palestinian will return the favor of laying a wreath at Carter’s final resting place…But, they might set off a car bomb in his honor…

Nozzle on April 16, 2008 at 10:24 PM

No wonder he gave us Khomeini.

spmat on April 16, 2008 at 11:09 PM

Jimmuh Cawtuh really needs to just go away. He was little more than a potted-plant as President. Now he’s just a walking, talking poster-boy for Alzheimers. Maybe he should go back to swinging a hammer for “Habitat”. At least he couldn’t do any damage – except to himself and people in a 3 foot radius.

How much did is it costing us in secret service security for Jhimmi to globetrot amongst terrorists?
