If He Would Just Please SHUT UP!

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

Ex-president and obvious anti-Semite Jimmy Carter is at it again. At a London press conference over the Memorial Day weekend, Carter described Israel’s blockade of the Gaza Strip as “one of the greatest human rights crimes now existing on Earth” and said that the European Union’s failure to support the Palestinian cause was “embarrassing”.

He was responding to a question about the level of threat posed by Iran to Israel, and had prefaced the above gushing expression of his dhimmitude by saying that Israel has “150 or more” nuclear weapons, “the US has more than 12,000 nuclear weapons, the Soviet Union (sic) has about the same; Great Britain and France have several hundred, and Israel has 150 or more.” “We have a phalanx of enormous weaponry, not only of enormous weaponry, but of rockets to deliver those missiles on a pinpoint accuracy target.”

This apparently was meant to imply that Iran’s possession of nuclear bombs would be minor in comparison and therefor not worth worrying about, even though Iran has sworn to wipe the state of Israel entirely off the Middle Eastern map.

Why Mr. Carter insists on exposing his hatred for Israel to the world, I have no idea, but I sure wish this former leader of our nation would shut up about it. He thinks the refusal of the E.U. to support the cause of the terrorist regimes of Palestine is embarrassing? Only to him. His support of terrorists is extremely embarrassing to America and all Americans and I dearly wish he would SHUT THE HELL UP!

The state of our current political morass is at least as embarrassing as Jimmy Carter’s non-stop mouth, and these paragraphs from a Black Star News article sum it up eloquently:

“While it is true that our current condition is primarily due to Republican greed, shortsightedness, and ineptitude, it is also true that we find ourselves in this condition as a result of the total impotence of the Democratic Party. Democratic politicians have been absolutely gutless for the past seven years. Instead of fighting for the soul of this nation and the ideals they profess to believe in, Democrats have been basing their actions on the direction of the wind; and instead of standing up for what was in the best interest of the nation, they were cowering in the basement on Capitol Hill, desperately trying to protect their own political careers.

But now that the Republican Party has all but self-destructed, the Democrats have chosen this moment to come strutting out to tell us all they want to do to protect our interest. Where were they before the Republican Party all but dropped dead of gluttony? If the Republican Party is indeed in the throes of death, it’s only resulting from Democrats allowing them to gorge themselves to death. And even now, the Democrats don’t have the intestinal fortitude to stand up to two egomaniacal Republicrats, (a reference to Bill and Hillary) as they wreak havoc within the Democrats’ own ranks.”

Carter is only one loose piece of the total fragmentation of our political leadership. There is no longer any cohesion among our government leaders. Just as the above article points out, they’re all out for themselves instead of uniting in the interests of their nation. None of them are putting America first, making the betterment of America their common goal. Instead they all bicker and feud and backstab, jockeying for power and chunks of pork.

It’s embarrassing.
