Who is this guy?

President Jimmy Carter will without a doubt go down as one of the worst presidents in American history. Somehow, he still seems to think that he gets to go around being a traitor to our countryís national interest all the time. He even thinks that it would be good if the incompetent, criminal activity of the United Nations Human Rights Committee were allowed to continue -- you know... things like rape and murder that this group has allowed to happen in the past.

James Taranto in the Wall Street Journalís "The Best of the Web" writes about how Carter met with a bunch of leading American critics from the U.N. and assured them:

"One of the things I assured them of was that the United States was not going to dominate all the other nations of the world in the Human Rights Council," Mr. Carter said. However, on the next day, Mr. Carter said, Mr. Bolton publicly "demanded" that the five permanent members of the Security Council will have permanent seats on the new council as well, "which subverted exactly what I have promised them," Mr. Carter said.

"So I called Condoleezza Rice and told her about the problem, and she said that that statement by our representative was not going to be honored," he said. But despite Mr. Carter's assessment that there are "a lot of people" in Washington who oppose Mr. Bolton on the Human Rights Council, Mr. Bolton's opposition to the proposed new structure became American policy.

Taranto further comments:

Carter's working to subvert U.S. diplomacy is nothing new; but his apparent belief that he can speak on behalf of the country while doing so is rather stunning.

It must drive him crazy to know that John Tyler was a member of the Confederate Congress when he died in 1862; that makes it hard for Carter to surpass Tyler as the most anti-American ex-president in history. But we doubt he'll ever stop trying.
