Jimmy Carter – open mouth insert foot

Posted on: April 29, 2011

Why does the State Department allow Jimmy Carter to travel? Don’t they know that when he visits third world countries he is only going to open his mouth and insert foot?

Recently,Jimmy Carter visited North Korea and came out with this asinine statement: The U.S. and South Korea are violating North Koreans’ human rights by withholding food. If you go to the link provided in the previous sentence you can see the YouTube of Mr. Carter’s statement.

Carter is behaving more as a citizen of the world instead of a citizen of the U.S. This trip was not part of the State Department visit but he was there as part of a delegation from “The Elders,” an elite team of ex-statesmen who travel the world sharing this type of wisdom. Why don’t “The Elders” stick with a golfing weekend instead? A nice golfing weekend with the “elders” would save face for the country.

Ironically, Kim Jong wouldn’t meet with Jimmy Carter but that didn’t stop the old peanut farmer from his ridiculous remarks. However, Kim Jong did say that he is willing to meet with either South Korea or the U.S. to talk disarmament and other matters. I guess when your people are hungry Kim is willing to talk to anybody about anything.

But now Carter blew it by calling out the U.S. and South Korea for violating North Korean’s human rights by withholding food. Thanks a bunch Jimmy. We aren’t violating human rights; it’s called “leverage” and would save a lot more lives than the alternative that North Korea is offering.

Carter wants to continue to prove that he is an arrogant ignorant redneck who never belonged in the Whitehouse. He is whiny, a little feminine and utterly without self awareness.
