Carter on Bush

Carter says Bush is the worst president in international relations, ever.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Former President Carter says President Bush's administration is "the worst in history" in international relations, taking aim at the White House's policy of pre-emptive war and its Middle East diplomacy.

Because Carter's administration did such a better job.

"I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history," Carter told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in a story that appeared in the newspaper's Saturday editions. "The overt reversal of America's basic values as expressed by previous administrations, including those of George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon and others, has been the most disturbing to me."

By "others" I'm sure he means himself since his administration is the next in line from the ones he was citing. If Carter isn't happy with someone's foreign policy, the rest of us should see that as a good thing given his own abysmal track record.

Most Americans agree too when looking at the election map for 1980. So tell me, why should we bother listening to Carter with regards to anything on how to be a President?
