Jimmy Carter, the Cheshire Cat

" a smile hides sharp teeth"


On Sunday, Dec 3, I listened to the interview between Tim Russert and jimmy carter.

Mr. carter blamed the Jewish lobby as being one of several factors why the US media nor any US politician does not overtly criticize Israel for positions and tactics they take re: Lebanon, palestinians while:

1) not commenting one the 1015 rockets from Gaza into Israel since the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza

2) commenting on Israel maltreating his palestinian children without mentioning what Israel is doing at the time ( there is also little mention of palestians in the "peace" treaty )

This was a taped show, I believe that jimmy was in venezuela to "monitor" the elections there and will soon report to CNN that it was a beautiful election ( this thing actually used that term to describe the elections of hamas on the larry king show).

It is fascinating that the MSM and the Democratic party keep resurrecting this being who squandered American goodwill following the Watergate scandal and was the weakest president to date re military spending and military testing.

Sadly the MSM laps up everything that passes through his lips as the Gospel truth including his belief that the world, especially the US should finance hamas and tries to legitimaize or make nobel their aspirations.

Unlike you sir, I believe that jimmy carter already received the envelope from the saudis long before he entered public life and recommenced applying his humble construction skills. In fact, I believe he received the envelope, along with james baker III before he even entered the white house; most likely during his campaign when they saw that he was going to defeat then president Ford ( whose only achievement himself was being a talking head on the Warren Commision). The saudi bling-bling no doubt helped finance the campaign and then it was payback; crush Israel and the West by a thousand lashes, ... slowly.

- his refusal to assist the shah of Iran; his so called peace mission to North Korea in 1994; his not so tacit of chavez, his comments that the US should finance Hamas.

I forgot for a moment I was listening to jimmy carter, he sounds like an ambassador from saudi.
