Quote of the Day

Former President Jimmy Carter has an interesting way of saying more than he intends. He lusts in his heart. He turns to his 13-year-old daughter for foreign policy wisdom. He titles a book, “Palestine Peace Not Apartheid.” What Mr. Carter means to say is that he is a flesh-and-blood human being, a caring father, a missionary for peace. What he actually communicates is that he is weirdly libidinal, scarily naive and obsessively hostile to Israel.

Now the 2002 Nobel laureate is in reprise mode. “In a democracy, I realize you don’t need to talk to the top leader to know how the country feels,” he said over the weekend, responding to a question from an Israeli journalist who noted that Mr. Carter had been snubbed by most of Israel’s top leadership and reprimanded by its president, Shimon Peres. “When I go to a dictatorship, I only have to talk to one person and that’s the dictator, because he speaks for all the people.”

—Malaise-ridden Former President Jimmy Carter, as quoted by Bret Stephens in the Wall Street Journal in 2008, and spotted today by one Ace of Spades’ co-bloggers as part of a “A Valentine’s Day Card For Jimmy Carter.” Carter of course, is far from alone on the left in his sentiments.

Imagine a world where Gerald Ford won in '76. Peace and quiet from our ex-presidents instead of nearly forty years of the Peanut Gallery clown show.

Jimmy Peanuts has spent the last 30 years trying to prove America was wrong for replacing him with Reagan and has done exactly the opposite.
