Jimmy Carter: I’m, like, the best ex-president ever

posted at 9:52 pm on September 20, 2010 by Allahpundit

Look at it this way: Has any ex-president caused as many problems for the Democratic leadership as this tool has? In that sense, he is kind of the best ex-president ever, isn’t he? And apparently the most egotistical too.

Until 2013, that is. High hopes, Barry!

He went to the airport to greet returning soldiers?

unclesmrgol on September 21, 2010 at 1:48 AM

Wasn’t he on the Left, wearing the Code Pink T-shirt? /

coldwarrior on September 21, 2010 at 1:51 AM

You had me at tool.

MT on September 21, 2010 at 2:08 AM

I just realized how much Carter looks like Barney Fife

davo on September 21, 2010 at 2:32 AM

Now that he’s not “the worst” anymore, he’s getting mighty uppity!

Lockstein13 on September 21, 2010 at 3:43 AM

Carter is a traitor! Coming out declaring the 2004 elections a farce, from Venezula! He can take his anti-semetic, American hating, do all that I can to take US down way of life and stuff it! Simply the worst, yet.

moyeti on September 21, 2010 at 4:31 AM

Go away Jimmah.

More gasoline for the November bonfire.

Thanks, Jimmah.

I love it!

CPT. Charles on September 21, 2010 at 6:31 AM

The worst vote I ever cast in my life was for this dipshit in 1976.

Go away.

Please, just go away.

Bruno Strozek on September 20, 2010 at 10:11 PM

Heretic – you can never be anything but a Rino wannabe. Sorry you failed the purity test so many decades ago… /sarc

Bradky on September 21, 2010 at 7:09 AM

Poor Jimmy! I remember 17%+ unemployment in Buffalo during the 1970′s… and how everything he did failed to address the de-industrialization of America but reward Union friends. I remember my aunt getting ‘free’ government cheese due to the lovely earmarks of William Proxmire and the fact that it was cheese that tasted ‘good enough for government work’… the family paid for the hot dogs and beans.

Best of all I remember poor Jimmy lusting in his heart after another woman.

And telling us he wanted carnal knowledge of the Polish people… too bad under the yoke of Communism they were already screwed.

The Polish people got rid of Communism.

I hope we follow their lead to get rid of authoritarian government… and put the bad taste of Jimmy Carter into our past for good as the second worst POTUS after the current TOTUS goes into retirement in 2012.

ajacksonian on September 21, 2010 at 7:14 AM

Bruno Strozek on September 20, 2010 at 10:11 PM

Most of us did something incredibly stupid in our youth. You have now recognized that and hopefully you won’t repeat the mistake. We learn and we grow. Congratulations. At least you learned from your error.

oldleprechaun on September 21, 2010 at 7:26 AM

I have enjoyed Jimmy Carter no longer being President every day since January 20, 1981.

You know, the day the Iranian hostages were released.

DarthBrooks on September 21, 2010 at 7:53 AM

So which human rights abuses has he eliminated, or even ameliorated?

Funny how when the lefties claim polarization, they always ignore how they’ve brought it to this level with their radical policies.

disa on September 21, 2010 at 7:56 AM

Further proof that liberalism is a mental disorder and Carter is in the latter stages. Tools this dull should not be allowed in the box.

volsense on September 21, 2010 at 7:58 AM

Yes, he was the best President if you had money to invest, you could get like fifteen percent returns. That helped, once Reagan stabilized the markets. Yeah, Carter was great, just ask Mugabe and Khomeini and Castro and Chavez and any tinpot dictator in the world (so long as they’re Communist, not pro american-that is). And any President that can be bested by a water bunny, will always be Elmer Fudd in the book of Presidents. If you believe Elmer Fudd was ‘superior’, well then Carter and Obama are your guys.

eaglewingz08 on September 21, 2010 at 8:02 AM

History has already been written on Jimmy Carter…
The man was-is a national embarrassment of epic proportion.
The entire world realized America’s weakness during Carters first 2-years in office. A free people who could be brainwashed by a few hundred people running the American media complex.

Yep, and the world just watched a repeat performance with the election of a man who had ZERO qualifications for potus, but yet a free people were brainwashed by a few hundred people in the media complex.

The laughter and glee was heard around the world with the election of Barack Hussein Obama.

Keemo on September 21, 2010 at 8:12 AM

Well Jimmy Carter is a senile old peanut farmer. He was a great president for Iran….. they loved him.

afotia on September 21, 2010 at 8:18 AM

The operative word is “ex-president”. When you were in office you were the worst, now you’re the second worst.

Wills on September 21, 2010 at 8:20 AM

If by “best” ex-president you mean “sleaziest, dumbest, most anti-American, Saudi-bought, terrorist-appeasing, anti-Semitic fool” of an ex-president, then I would have to agree.

AZCoyote on September 21, 2010 at 8:35 AM

In a related story, Georgia environmental officials responded to a complaint that a “gigantic mountain of discarded aerosol cans of dessert toppings” was visible from the road behind the home of former President Jimmy Carter. Strangely enough, the cans were devoid of propellant but full of the topping. Georgia drug enforcement officials confirmed that Carter is “one of the biggest huffers in the state, if not the biggest”.

ya2daup on September 21, 2010 at 8:46 AM

Jimmah’s incompetence helped make Ahmadinejad the tyrant he is today.

No number of homes built for the poor will make up for that.

Disturb the Universe on September 21, 2010 at 8:50 AM

He is so great that he can criticize and whine about other presidents…that will show everyone how great thou art…why he even wrote a letter to the U.N. whining about President Bush, and of course Obama is doing the same only to a governor.
Strange coincidence that the only two presidents to whine to the U.N. are democrats. So weak they need assistance from a do nothing organization.

right2bright on September 21, 2010 at 9:00 AM

(from the earlier headline thread)

“I feel that my role as a former president is probably superior to that of other presidents,” former President Jimmy Carter told NBC News.

If you are, then I’m married to Morgan Fairchild.

http://snltranscripts.jt.org/85/85bliar.phtml

Hey, remember 3 years ago when 14 advisers at the Carter Center resigned because his new book contained inaccuracies and distorted history? That makes Carter extra-specially, mega-gargantuanly superior also. With a cherry on top. We should call him “homo-superior”.

theCork on September 21, 2010 at 9:06 AM

Certain people of extreme age sometimes have delusions of grandeur and superiority.

Jimmah suffers from that problem. He also looks like he has a pantload and needs his Depends changed out.

Kuffar on September 21, 2010 at 9:22 AM

I wish Jimmy could find the rocker on the back porch and then ask Roselyn to bring him a glass of sweet tea. I remember the long gas lines when he tried to manage our dependence on foreign oil, and the failed rescue attempt in the desert. Oh, yeah, the skyrocketing mortgage interest rates, too. Great job, Jimmy.

Kissmygrits on September 21, 2010 at 9:22 AM

My uncle agrees that Jimmah was the best president in US history. No kidding.
I seriously can’t even deal with this revisionist history. It drives me nuts.
ha.

ORconservative on September 21, 2010 at 9:26 AM

He was great because he paved the way for Ronald Reagan to win by a landslide. He even gave us control of the Senate in that election.

For that, especially Reagan, we thank him.

Corky Boyd on September 21, 2010 at 9:57 AM

Carter’s book may be the second-best rallying point for Republicans this election cycle–reminding anyone who remembers the Sorry Seventies what NOT to do! American diplomats held hostage for over a year, all those “To Russia With Love” treaties kissing Brezhnev’s cheek and nether regions, waiting in line three hours on odd days of the month for gasoline, and who could afford a 20% mortgage? Remind us of the genius of your wonderful presidency, Jimmuh, and we’ll tell our kids about it!

Of course, the best rallying point for Republicans this election cycle is Barack Hussein Obama! Mmmm mmmm mmmm.

Steve Z on September 21, 2010 at 10:22 AM

- I remember the gas shortages and lines at the gas stations.
– I remember Carter giving away the Panama Canal (no, that could never possibly come back to bite us).
– I remember Carter doing *nothing* to help the Iranian hostages until that fiasco in the desert.
– I remember how weak we looked to the rest of the world while some 4th rate, backwards barbarians thwarted us and spit in our eye while Carter did nothing.
– I remember the Iranians releasing the hostages the day Reagan taking office.
– I remember Carter wearing sweaters in front of a fire place and telling us that we were too used to success and excess.
– I remember Carter being at the signing of the peace treaty between Sadat (Egypt) and Begin (Isreal). I guess that’s the only positive memory I have of his presidency.

Carter thinks he was successful because he got so many of his bills passed. What he fails to comprehend (because he’s an ideological moron), is that his POLICIES are why he’s a miserable failure…who cares if you have a great batting average if you’re always hitting into double plays and losing the game?

Geministorm on September 21, 2010 at 10:23 AM

Carter’s worst act by a considerable degree was the engineering of the return of the Khomeini to Iran from Paris and the subsequent r-word in Iran. Historians (mostly liberals) have papered over his role, transforming him into a hapless victim-bystander, when in reality he organized the fall of the shah. He naively thought that islamism would provide a counterbalance to communism in the region.

The Iran that is our biggest problem today in the Middle East is Jimmy Carter’s legacy.

slickwillie2001 on September 21, 2010 at 10:53 AM

So,the Carter Center has given him more oppotunities to do good around the world.Did it ever occur to him that other countries might not want him doing his good works?Maybe that is one reason other countries dislike America,because of people like Jimmah who can’t mind his own business,and present themselves as superior to the poor ignorant non-Americans.Just a thought.

DDT on September 21, 2010 at 10:58 AM

A legend, in his own mind.

CynicalOptimist on September 21, 2010 at 11:49 AM

Credit where due: Jimmy Carter becoming an ex-president did more to put our nation back on a strong footing than any ex-president of the last century.

Obama is about to trump him, though.

tom on September 21, 2010 at 12:07 PM

Indulge the senile old man in his fantasies. At this point it can’t hurt much.

Scrappy on September 21, 2010 at 12:45 PM

As “Sulu” would say: “Ohhh MY!!”

So delusional, so wrong, so out of touch, so “evil”!

Fatal on September 21, 2010 at 1:10 PM

Dubbed by Bob Tyrell back in the day “the Wonderboy from Plains”. Jimmy is a spiritually sick nincompoop.

wraithby on September 21, 2010 at 1:32 PM

“bi-partisan relationship”

No one could work with this jackass!

wraithby on September 21, 2010 at 1:38 PM

Emphasis on the “ex”…

mojo on September 21, 2010 at 1:57 PM

Neil Boortz suggests that Carter needs to move into a retirement home now.

maverick muse on September 21, 2010 at 4:09 PM

Answer: Jimmy Carter, Ross Perot and John McCain…

Question: Why shouldn’t US Naval Academy graduates run for President of the United States?

Khun Joe on September 21, 2010 at 5:37 PM

Jimmah’s example of class and grace.
Obama’s already demonstrating these traits and he hasn’t even been tossed out on one of his humongous ears by the bitter clingers yet!

chickasaw42 on September 21, 2010 at 6:08 PM

Best Ex president indeed. He’s the one I’m happiest is Ex (likely to change in 25 months, however).

HBowmanMD on September 21, 2010 at 6:38 PM

Did anyone catch President Carter on the Daily Show last night bragging about masturbating in his youth? Even Jon Stewart seemed a bit disgusted by the comment.

dnlchisholm on September 21, 2010 at 6:51 PM

Maybe a couple hundred words or so.

justltl on September 21, 2010 at 9:26 PM

Most Hopeful
If we survived Carter there is hope for survivng Ogumby.

Rea1ityCheck on September 21, 2010 at 10:49 PM

Pinhead.

Jimmy Carter: I’m, like, the best ex-president ever!

Just ask The Invisible killer Rabbit!

DSchoen on September 22, 2010 at 4:36 AM

Jew Hater…..That’s all…..Oh, and the SECOND crappiest president only upstaged by President Cloward Piven HUSSEIN Obamalinsky…..

adamsmith on September 22, 2010 at 6:45 AM

Great people don’t demand recognition for their greatness, nor do they boast about it.

A legend, in his own mind.

CynicalOptimist on September 21, 2010 at 11:49 AM

Exactly!!!

Carter imagines himself a “peacemaker,” but the reality is that he fails every time he tries to play in the International scene. Other leaders around the world see him as a “sucker” who is easily “played”…just as Obama is today.

Carter was responsible for double-digit mortgage interest rates, which led to the repeal of every usury law in the country…and the re-victimization of “the less fortunate” (who the Democrats always claim to support) which continues to this day.

The entire nation was victimized by his feckless presidency.

Carter does much better as a Habitat for Humanity volunteer, where he’s NOT in charge of anything important.

landlines on September 22, 2010 at 10:55 AM

Pride goeth before a fall. Book of Proverbs. I don’ think this “good” Southern Baptist has read his Bible lately. I voted for this moron because at one time I was a moron–a California liberal democrat. Thank you God for age, wisdom, and opened eyes!!!
