Carter: I was careless. Or was I misinterpreted? (update)
Posted by: McQ on Monday, May 21, 2007

And the backpedaling begins:
Former President Jimmy Carter said Monday his remarks were ''careless or misinterpreted'' when he said the Bush administration has been the ''worst in history'' for its impact around the world.

And in response to a charge from the White House that Carter is becoming ''increasingly irrelevant, he said, ''Well I don't claim to have any relevancy. I have a completely unofficial capacity.''

Speaking on NBC's Today Show, Carter appeared to retreat from a statement he made over the weekend to Arkansas Democrat-Gazette that, ''I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history.''
"Careless or misinterpreted?" Well which is it Mr. Carter?

Regardless, it would be nice if you'd keep your completely "unofficial" remarks to yourself in the future, because frankly, few if any are particularly interested in hearing any remarks from perhaps the biggest failure as President of the United States this nation has ever seen.

UPDATE: Some of the transcript:
VIERA: Before we talk about your work done there, sir, you made headlines over the weekend for blasting the Bush administration. You have criticized the administration before. But never so vehemently. What provoked those words, that choice of words? Why now?

PRESIDENT CARTER: What i was doing was responding to questions comparing this administration's foreign policy with that of Richard Nixon. And I think Richard Nixon had a very good and productive foreign policy. And my remarks were maybe careless or misinterpreted. But I wasn't comparing the overall administration and certainly not talking personally about any president. There is no doubt in my mind... I'm sorry.

VIERA: I was saying you said your remarks might have been careless. Are you saying now you believe they were careless? or reckless?

PRESIDENT CARTER: Well, yes. because they were interpreted as saying... comparing this whole administration to all other administrations. What I was actually doing was responding to a question about foreign policy between Richard Nixon and this administration. And I think this administration's foreign policy compared to president Nixon was much worse.
Well there you go. What relevance that has to anything is still to be determined. But my advice to Mr. Carter stands.

The Vast Right Wing Nosie Machine Carelessly Misinterpreted the Great-Souled One’s remarks! If only Jim-muh could be elected to the UN; he and the pragmatists on the Iranian Guardian Council could fashion a new Middle East, one free of Zionist/American Hegemony!

McQ is just baiting the designated cheerleader for one of the most respected and honored men of the world.

Ya know, that’s entertaining just to repeat, just the idea.
"one of the most respected and honored men of the world"...
Gives me a whole new perspective on listening to anything any of the rest of the world has to say if that respected and honored thing is actually true.

But the ongoing defense is really the most entertaining thing at all, it’s so, unrealistic I’m coming to the conclusion Dr Erb doesn’t actually believe it, he just says these things to torque people off.


Joe, you provide an excellent sample, though you frequently achieve zany satire, rather than necessarily torquing folks off (hat tip).
But them black flies are nothing to joke about! I can recall one frustrated 15 minute interval in my wasted youth when I was determined I would stand still and let them land on me just so I could slaughter them wholesale before nature demonstrated to me there was an endless supply of them. Later as a suitable reward for my pigheaded & futile stand my ankles and wrists turned into puffy purple bands. Ah, youth.

Pigheaded & Futile, endless supply of things, brings me back to discussions of America’s single most useful idiot with Dr Erb.

I love this line. He admits his remarks serve no useful purpose, save to salve his sagging ego. Attention must be payed!

I, too, expect to soon read on this very page a rousing defense of St. Jimmy. It may be problematic, though, to defend his relevance since The Jimmy himself says he is irrelevant.

Look, you’re not going to get any argument from me that Carter was one of the more ineffectual presidents we’ve had. But can you really say he was the "biggest failure" when we’re currently living through the debacle that is the Bush presidency? I mean seriously. Our current president is a joke. Everything he touches turns to crap. Everything he does reeks of cronyism and incompetence. It’s just not even close.

AND, Jim-muh was so ineffectual, that the Iraninas held the hostages until he was OUT OF OFFICE, before releasing them...

Yet Jim-muh is PREFERABLE to Dubya...you need to take your med’s dude before the BDS causes irreparable harm.

Having lived thru the era I used to think, "Jim-muh had bad luck", but in retrospect Jim-muh brought it on himself...
Let the Shah into the US for treatment, well that won’t cause any problems...

Oil prices sky-rokcet, well let’s losen fiscal and monetary policy to "reflate" Western Economies, "Hello Stagflation".

The man couldn’t even get DoD to provide first rate maintenance for fewer than a dozen helicopters and provide sufficient NVG’s for the Hostage Rescue Attempt! It’s not like they were staging Operation Overlord, here. His DoD was incompetent, they couldn’t mount a small battalion-sized operation, albeit one deep in Iran...Plus Cyrus Vance quits, because he opposes the use of force in the situation...well that was a brilliant pick for SecState!

Jim-muh had a tough row to hoe, no doubt, in the US circa 1976, he just managed to do a much worse job than he might have....

And I did not realize we had a tag team working here. AL, did Erb tag you into the match? If not, then you need to go back to the previous post where McQ told Carter "So do us all a favor, will you, and STFU." Read the comments and then come in swinging - from a tree.

I’ll go with Joe - I remember the Carter presidency, at the end of the decade that never was. He was a fitting President to see us out of what had been, by and large a totally crappy 10 years.

Morning in America wasn’t just a Reagan slogan, it was reality, and the decade before had been the nightmare we were waking up from. I can’t recall a more depressing national decade.

I once thought Carter was a decent man, caught in a crappy situation. But the next 10 years demonstrated it didn’t have to be that way, Carter inherited a lot of crap in addition to the crap he got us in, and had not a single clue of how to come up out of it.

And every time he opens his mouth now I realize he’s a bitter man with no grace, style or class.

I’m amazed that people try to compare the two. The late 70’s were horrible! It seems like people have no idea what things like 17% mortgage rates do to you. In brief, a quick look at a $165,000 mortgage 30 year fixed at 7% = $1097.75 per month. At 17%???? = $2,352.56. Ugh - I’m glad I was a home owner through that mess.

And the fact that he admitted that he was shocked by the Soviet intervention in Afghnistan and had to rethink his outlook on the USSR? WHAT HEllllloooo Jim-muh did you think that 1968, or 1956 or 1953 were just figments of the VRWDB’s Fervid imagination!?!?!

And the "Malaise" Speech, yeah that’s leadership, blame the troops! "Ameri-cuh is F*cked up an’its y’alls fault! Doan worry tho’ ’cuz with SynFuels and fuzzy sweaters we’all kin come to grips with our lessened futures."

Please AL, don’t try to make a silk purse out of this sow’s ear, because it just is not going to happen on a host of levels. Just back away from the BDS...as Daniel Patrick Moynihan said, "We’re all entitled to our own opinions, but we’rea aren’t entitlted to our own set of facts." And the facts, in this case, just aren’t going to support your opinion.

I am so sick and tired of people saying that Carter was the worst President ever. That just betrays a total lack of study of history.

Heh ... Still pushing the Buchanan is the worst meme, Jeff? ;)

Look, you need to give it up. Buchanan, for all his perfidy was hardly in Carter’s league as ’worst’. When it comes to measuring worst, Carter is, in fact in a league of his own. Buchanan, Harding, LBJ and Nixon are actually only Triple A to Carter’s Major League when it comes worst presidents.

But Buchanan thanks you for trying. I guess as he views it being worst is better than being "who?"

Scott, two names, Patty Farenelli and Linda Weismeir.

Any way, McQ, I would stand that Buchanan, 1856-version, was much worse than Jim-muh. IF he actively conspired with the South and other Nullification folks, for whatever reason, he merely played with fire and delayed the most horrific conflict that our nation has ever been involved with. In Jim-muh’s case his pernicious effects had disappeared within a decade, I don’t think you can say the same about Buchanan’s.

Now Harding v. Jim-muh is tougher. Harding MEANT to be what he was corrupt, I don’t think Jim-muh intended bad, he just was INCOMPETENT. So can you compare a crook and a poltroon? At least for the record as "worst" goes?

Sorry McQ, but I can’t agree on Carter v. Bush. You’re about my age so I remember Carter’s years pretty well. He was a bad President, no question about it. But he at least did one good thing during his four years—naming Paul Volcker chairman of the Fed. Volcker’s actions during the last year and a half of Carter’s presidency set the stage for the economic recovery of the 80s. (And hat’s off to Reagan for keeping Volcker on.) At this point, six and a half years into his presidency, is there anything that the Bush administration has done that is a net positive or is likely to be a net positive? I’m having a hard time coming up with one. The economy is pretty good, but most of the credit for that goes to Greenspan and the Fed for flooding the economy with liquidity and keeping rates at near historic lows following 9/11. To me, the President’s main job is to be the leader of the country—to convince people that he is worth following. Carter did a bad job of that; Bush has done worse.

Er, stopped clock, etc. Steve.

That was absolutely, at least in my experience, one of the worst eras of the American history I’ve lived through to date. It was simply awful. And I remember what it was like as clearly as, well, yesterday. While Bush hasn’t been a world beater as president, he’s at least known how to be presidential at times and when necessary. Carter never, ever figured that out.

Malaise best describes his time in office and an obvious "I can’t wait until I can get this goob out of office" settled in on the entire country and was demonstrated with a vengeance in the next presidential election. As someone said, at least Bush has been reelected.

Jimmy Carter was like a bad taste in your mouth which you couldn’t wait to get rid of. And even if he’d have been followed by George W. Bush instead of RR, the vast majority of Americans would have considered the Bush presidency a breath of fresh air compared to Carter.

Limbaugh makes a good point, Carter’s problem is the Nixon Funeral, where everyone spoke of Mr Un-Indicted Co-Conspirator in glowing terms, and Rosalynn shot Jim-muh the "look"..."Look what they’re saying about this lying, conniving crook, what are YOU going to do to get a nicer eulogy?" Since then he’s gone everywhere and spared no expense to be seen and be seen as a great and compassionate man, even if he has to shake the hand or lick the boot of every tin-horn murderous dictator in the world.

Dubya convinced 62,040,610 people (53% of the popular vote) that he was worth following. Carter convinced 35,480,115 (41% of the popular vote) that he was worth following. So, even by that metric, Carter is still a failure compared to Bush.

(Note: James Buchanan got little under 59% of the popular vote, though that wasn’t for a second term — make of that what you will.)

Sorry, Steve. Not even a good try on that one. Carter did not lead, he micro-managed. Four times during his presidency, the US Ambassador to the UN had to abstain during critical votes in the Security Council because Carter had not told him how to vote.

Ever try and pay the mortgage on a 17% home loan (see previous entry)? How many hours did you spend in gas lines? I remember Carter’s "tighten your belt" speech when he warned the country this was as good as it was ever gonna be, so we needed to tighten our belts and get ready for the bad days to come. He wasn’t talking about a cold winter - he was telling the American people we were too rich and needed to downsize our expectations for the future - for all of the future.

70% tax rate. That was the top of the tax schedule during the Carter years and he was proposing to increase that to 75%+. And the rest of us were caught up in midstream. I make more money now than I did back then (even when considering $$ in 1970 standards) and I pay a fraction in taxes compared to what I paid back then. Carter sounding good to you? Wanna go back to those days? I’ll stay right here Bush and all, thank you very much!

Then there was his foreign policy. What foreign policy. Within days of his inauguration, Carter gives the cold shoulder to the Shah of Iran. That’s all the signal the mullah’s needed to bring back the Ayatollah from exile. Down goes the Shah. You like the current Iran? Thank you Mr Carter.

Carter decides to heal the wounds of the Viet Nam War and he pardons all who fled to Canada to avoid the draft. Boy did that go ever well to all those who had served.

Carter then tries to one up Nixon and legitimizes the Peoples Republic of China as the ONLY representative of China, condemning Taiwan and Nationalist China to expulsion from the UN. Great move that one!

The Soviets build up on the border of the Western European nations and Carter’s response to NATO - You are on your own!

And then the Embassy takover in Tehran. Followed closely by Desert Debacle I. And you people think we have a bad reputation in the world today. We were the laughing stock of the world. Even Cuba actively flaunted their power over our Foreign Policy by importing their brand of Communism to Africa. Thousands of Cuban "volunteers" fight the legitimate governments in Angola and Rhodesia. In 1978, the Strategic Studies Institute (a British military think tank) estimated the Cuban combat military presence in Africa at over 35,000 troops. And we did nothing!

The Soviet Union invades Afghanistan - Carter cancels the US participation in the 1980 Summer Olympics. That’ll show those mean old commies! And he has the nerve to apologize for being too aggressive.

Yeah, bring back those good old days! I’ll repeat myself, I’ll stay right here Bush and all, thank you very much!

How, when, and where please.

Are you referencing the president standing on the rubble of the twin towers, or standing on the deck of an aircraft carrier?

The presidency, as history will judge it, is a zero-sum game. We have yet to see the final outcome of the presidency of GWB, we have a real grasp on the clear failures of Carter.

If Bush succeeds in pulling a rabbit out of a hat with regard to…
Here’s the problem, however, and it is a problem I think most people who are against this bill share ... we have absolutely no confidence that this administration or any other administration will actually do what they say they’re going to do.
immigration the War in Iraq, then his presidency will be judged by history as a great success.

At this point, all we have to judge on GWB is our own predictions as to the outcome of Iraq. The predictions, of course, are now becoming quite consistent… Not Good.

I was just a wee lad during the Carter years, so I have taken my fathers opinion on Carter as gospel…

“I thought L.B.J. – that S.O.B. – was the worst president in history until Carter came along.”
(Funny that every time my father refers to Johnson by his initials, it is immediately followed by a set of other initials.)

Ever since I’ve been paying attention to politics, I’ve always considered the current president at the time to be the worst.

“This Bush guy has just got to be the worst guy to be president.”
“This bastard Clinton has got to be – by far – the worst president in US history.”
“This imbecile Dubya must be the worst leader this country has ever seen.”

They just keep getting worse, so I have no frame of reference.

Perhaps in 2012 I’ll be saying,
“This tart Hillary is driving this country straight to the gates of Hell.”

Turns out, I’m becoming just like my dad.
And if that is any indication… I’m going to become fat and bald.

Man, this suck.

Ah, Carter was TEH WORST. I love this shiboleth of conservative faith. Nevermind that our current president has even higher disapproval ratings than Carter did. The people must just be horribly confused because Carter was SO much worse than Bush.

I agree that the late 1970s were rough times and Carter was a particularly ineffectual leader. But he was also only president for 4 years. It’s not as if his election in 1976 magically turned the country to sh*t. The economic and energy problems that marked the late 70s pre-dated Carter’s presidency (and Republicans controlled the White House for the previous 8 years). Carter didn’t cause those problems. You can argue that his policies exacerbated them, or that he was ineffectual at fighting them, but that’s not quite the WORST PRESIDENT EVER indictment you seem to think it is.

Plus, we all know the effect a President has on the economy is marginal at best (unless you’re willing to concede that Clinton was THE BEST PRESIDENT EVER because of the 90s boom? didn’t think so).

The Bush presidency has been marked not only by catastrophically inept foreign policy, but a level of cronyism and incompetence that will likely never be matched in our lifetimes.

There’s a reason Bush is so historically unpopular (more so than Carter). It’s because he’s been a truly terrible president.

Buchannan was definitely the worst. Hands down.

If he’d have given the South Jackson’s reply to nullification, there may not have been a civil war, and slavery might have died a natural death, and mayhap even full civil rights to freedmen’s descendants evolved the more quickly. His near (and possibly actual) treason precluded that possibility.

On a scale of 1 to 100, I’ve got to put Buchannan at 5, Carter at 15, and Bush anywhere from 35 to 65 depending on how the war turns out, and how hard the Dems try to make us lose.

See, now, that’s just wrong, because according to a poll provided by, I think it was Dr. Erb, Bush’s low rating is paralleled by Carters, and exceeded by Nixon.

And that poll happened to be about the worst poll so far for Georgie.
Not that being as bad as Carter is something to boast about, but your claim, well, is just incorrect.

"I don’t think even Playboy was all that good in that era, truth to tell."

Who needed Playboy? As I remember, this was the era when pornography became fashionable. There were lines, in public, to see "Deep Throat". I didn’t see that one, but I did see "I Am Curious, Yellow", the "art" film. Certainly spicier than Playboy, and wasn’t this when Penthouse got started?

*******************

" Carter did not lead, he micro-managed."

Ah, yes. Who can forget the White House tennis court affair.

********************

My theory is that Carter has become a little unhinged due to the successful post-Presidency of Mr. Bill. He spends a lifetime going to church, teaching Sunday school, never swearing, just generally being as earnestly and publicly moral as he possibly can, and this punk pervert who was impeached and disbarred gets all the good high-profile ex-Pres. jobs. Wee Willy even has a better smile. All that work, all those chicks he could have had, and what does he get? Rosslyn. The Steel Magnolia. Year after year honing that keen intellect, burnishing that image, and Bubba the TWO term white trash Pres. gets the headlines(and, no doubt, the head). That’s gotta hurt. And he don’t even have 72 virgins to look forward to. Just more Rosslyn.
