When it comes to truth telling most Democrats rank former President Jimmy Carter right up there beside Senator Ted Kennedy, Reverend Al Sharpton, former President Bill Clinton and film faker Michael Moore. Maybe even a little higher than Sharpton and Moore.
With that as background, I’ll bet you know a few days ago Carter was reported to have said a number of things about the current Bush administration, including that it's the “worst in [America’s] history.”
Carter’s remarks got American’s thinking about whose administration is really the worst in our history. That’s never good for “the Carter legacy” MSM Dems have worked so hard to prop up and inflate.
Carter must have learned what was happening because now the AP is telling us:
Former President Jimmy Carter said Monday his remarks were "careless or misinterpreted" when he said the Bush administration has been the "worst in history" for its impact around the world.But who can you believe? Carter and the AP are equally unreliable sources.
Speaking on NBC's "Today," Carter appeared to retreat from a statement he made to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for a Saturday story in which he said: "I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history."
Carter said Monday that when he made the comment, he was responding to a question comparing the Bush administration's foreign policy to that of Richard Nixon.
Fortunately for those who care about the truth, there’s an audio tape of Carter’s actual remarks. You can listen to them here at AOL Audio Player. [Look on the left side of the screen for the large box titled “Carter Interview.”]
If after listening to the tape, you decide Carter’s telling the truth when he claims his remarks were “careless or misinterpreted” rather than deliberate, don’t contact me.
