    What the hell is wrong with Jimmy Carter, I thought he was a pretty good ex-president. Now the guy is just going about things the wrong way. There is no way under any circumstances do you meet with Hamas. These people arent a country, or any recognized political group. These are terrorist, no ways around that description of this group and he is giving them the time of day. They have shown, time and time again, they care nothing about co-existing, they just want murder, terror, and blood.

    Who thinks that Carter has it right on this issue?

    I disagree that Carter was a good president. He was almost completely ineffective. That was a big reason he was not elected to a second term. Is Carter insane? No. He is just wrong. By visiting Hamas he undercuts the effort of the United States and its allies to isolate the terrorist group. Even many of his own Democrats have opposed him on this issue. Carter has always had a messianic complex - kind of like Jessie Jackson. Both think they were put on this earth to save us from ourselves. Talk about self-rightous egos.

    He's old and senile. Most people like that make a full day of it when they go to the post office. Jimmy just kills time in stranger places.

    I do not think anyone will say he was a good president.

    Best thing to come out of his family:

    Not a great President, true, but far from "completely ineffective". Certainly not regarding the middle east. The Camp David accords produced a peace between Israel and Egypt that has endured . . . and he turned Egypt from a Russian ally into an American ally. These are significant foreign policy achievements.

    He got two implacable enemies who had just fought a major war to sit down and agree on some compromises. Perhaps he thinks he can do it again, but he just ain't President any more. It's not his job.

    you talking about mis read the post, wow. I said he was a good ex-president, not president. Ex implies after he left office, due to his peace efforts around the world. And what does Jesse Jackson have to do with this thread:huh:
