Carter: Undermining US foreign policy?
Posted by: McQ on Friday, March 03, 2006

This old man is getting more and more tiresome as the days go by ... isn't it peanut season in Plains yet?
President Carter personally called Secretary of State Rice to try to convince her to reverse her U.N. ambassador's position on changes to the U.N. Human Rights Commission, the former president recalled yesterday in a talk in which he also criticized President Bush's Christian bona fides and misstated past American policies on Israel.

Mr. Carter said he made a personal promise to ambassadors from Egypt, Pakistan, and Cuba on the U.N. change issue that was undermined by America's ambassador, John Bolton. "My hope is that when the vote is taken," he told the Council on Foreign Relations, "the other members will outvote the United States."
Yup, it wouldn't be a UN Human Rights Commission unless Cuba and Libya are included.

But one has to ask, what in the world is Jimmy Carter doing making "personal promises" concerning the UN to ambassadors from anywhere?
"One of the things I assured them of was that the United States was not going to dominate all the other nations of the world in the Human Rights Council," Mr. Carter said. However, on the next day, Mr. Carter said, Mr. Bolton publicly "demanded" that the five permanent members of the Security Council will have permanent seats on the new council as well, "which subverted exactly what I have promised them," Mr. Carter said.
Excuse me, but you can only be "subverted" if you are the one that sets the policy of the United States, Mr. Carter. You're not. So in this case it is you who are doing the subverting.

Will someone be kind enough to tell this man to shut his freakin' mouth once and for all?

Oh ... I just did.

Aren’t there laws against individuals representing the US to foreign powers without the government’s blessing? It seems to me that there are.

I’m glad somebody gets my jokes. My wife, quite frankly, finds them more and more tiresome as the days go by.

I’ll bet the ambassadors of Egypt, Pakistan and Cuba took that promise to the bank. I mean, Jimmy’s got stroke and everybody knows it.

Insofar as that lesson has been hypothetically taught, I’d say Bill Clinton has a much better claim as the teacher.

"Jimmy Carter - the highest ranking useful idiot in American history."

Why on earth do you think he is useful?

"I’ll bet the ambassadors of Egypt, Pakistan and Cuba took that promise to the bank"
Well, they were on the way to the bank anyway, to deposit their various bribes, so it wasn’t out of their way.

Oh, he’s very useful - to our enemies.

Are you not familiar with the term "useful idiots"? It was coined by Lenin to describe the mush-headed Americans that were apologists for Communist atrocities.

It was a jest.
And yes, I am familiar with the term, and I believe it applied to more than just Americans.
