    "Every president has been a very powerful factor here in advocating this two-state solution. That is now not apparent," he [former Pres. Carter] added later.
    --------------------
    I think the former President has failed to notice that the so called Bush Doctrine did not include a separate Palestinean state.

    Two failed liberal whack jobs not haing anything to do with one another. The problem is that the failed Carter actually makes the absolute dunce Obama look worse. One was a phony fraud, and the other is a corrupt, lying, inep, incompetent, union toady fraud.

    That should have been Carter's greatest legacy. The '70s were rife with artificial oil shortages caused by OPEC reductions in oil output. Pres. Carter set the example for clean energy by putting solar panels on the roof of the White house, which Reagan later removed as "too expensive." Pres. Carter created a Dep't of Energy, which Reagan came in and dismantled as "wasteful" and "getting in the way".

    Solar energy and other alternative forms of energy production were getting in the way of big oil profits.

    My husband and I lived in Alaska during the Carter years. I can remember Jimmy telling us to turn our thermostats down to 68. Brrr. That was some cold, cold advice. However, we did. And, yes ... we still keep it at 68 during the day and 66 at night in the winter months. Never voted for the guy, though. But, hey. It's all good.

    Not a bad sound bite for an amateur. SNL is not currently hiring, but I understand that FNC is.

    Actually they have two things in common. Jimmy Carter didn't know how to be president and Obama doesn't either. But time wii heal all wounds.

    It is very wise of the president to keep a long distance from former Pres. Carter. As a Democrat, I regard Carter as a failure in office and a disastrous ultra-liberal imbecile on all issues of foreign policy since he left office. There's a good reason the Democratic Party has marginalized him. Considering everything, Mr. Carter might do better going to the so-called Green Party and joining Ralph Nader and his communists there-he has nothing in common with Pres. Obama.

    oh what sweet justice when Carter's grandson found and brought to light the 47% video showing Flip Flopney in his true sense.

    "That's how Jimmy Carter described his interaction with President Barack Obama in an interview with CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" last January. "

    And, of course, in posting this advertisement for Morgan's show, CNN tosses out an incendiary interpretation of what Carter said without providing the quote so we can check the veracity of CNN's characterization of it. Lame.

    Two men "fighting" for first place consideration in "whom do you believe to be the worst President in modern history?"

    These are two of the countries worst presidents! Why would one want to get bad advice from the other. The current one has his own horrible advisors Neither one has a clue of what to do in the White House, so they should not talk. Carter has always tried to get into the public eye and nobody wants to listen to him. He knows he screwed up and is trying to save face.

    I wouldn't want to interact with either of them. Neither is or was a good President. Carter is a great person, by working on humanitarian issues now, but not much of a leader! Obama is not a good leader, and especially isn't who I voted for the 1st time!

    The man that wrecked the economy with his spend and cut tax policy, two unfunded wars, unfunded drug plan, deadliest attack on our nation and the Patriot Act never gets a mention by the haters when it comes to who they want to call the worst President.
