Jimmy Carter Just Can't Hide His Visceral Hatred of Bush and Republicans

LA Times
A socialist dingbat like Jimmy Carter can't win on the field of ideas so, like any typical liberal, he resorts to distorting the truth, leave salient facts in the dark and, when all else fails, just lie like a felon. His new book is rife w/ leftist tripe and displays his extremist views rather blatantly:
IN RECENT YEARS, I have become increasingly concerned by a host of radical government policies that now threaten many basic principles espoused by all previous administrations, Democratic and Republican.

Also endangered are our historic commitments to providing citizens with truthful information, treating dissenting voices and beliefs with respect, state and local autonomy and fiscal responsibility

we have proclaimed a policy of "preemptive war," an unabridged right to attack other nations unilaterally to change an unsavory regime or for other purposes

there are determined efforts by top U.S. leaders to exert American imperial dominance throughout the world.

the burden of conflict is now concentrated exclusively on the few heroic men and women sent back repeatedly to fight in the quagmire of Iraq. The rest of our nation has not been asked to make any sacrifice, and every effort has been made to conceal or minimize public awareness of casualties.

we now find civil liberties and personal privacy grossly violated under some extreme provisions of the Patriot Act.

the U.S. has repudiated the Geneva accords and espoused the use of torture in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay, and secretly through proxy regimes elsewhere with the so-called extraordinary rendition program. It is embarrassing to see the president and vice president insisting that the CIA should be free to perpetrate "cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment or punishment" on people in U.S. custody.

We have now become a prime culprit in global nuclear proliferation.

Protection of the environment has fallen by the wayside because of government subservience to political pressure from the oil industry and other powerful lobbying groups.

Our government has abandoned fiscal responsibility by unprecedented favors to the rich

I am extremely concerned by a fundamentalist shift in many houses of worship and in government, as church and state have become increasingly intertwined in ways previously thought unimaginable

An entire book that simply lists the talking points of the Left: Bush lied, America is the evil in the world, Republicans are racists and are destroying the envirnment, blah, blah, blah. Not exactly new material, is it?
All I can say is: THANK GOD Carter is no longer president. Easily one of the worse administrations in US history, it's pretty sad to see the guy taking his talking points and observations from the likes of Michael Moore. Carter makes Nancy Pelosi look intellectual.
