Jimmy Carter's Nose Out Of Joint

Former president Jimmy Carter apparently has his nose out of joint after being left out of the U.S. delegation for the funeral of Pope John Paul II. Captain's Quarters has this on the subject.
Seems Carter, who has been hard on presidents Bush and Clinton, is upset at not being included, however he didn't attend Popes funerals when he was in office.

Ol' BC sees it this way - Carter was perhaps the worst president ever elected and his feelings being hurt on this issue are of virtually no consequence. It's just another opportunity to criticize Dubya.

Just a thought.

Carter is the worst president ever elected? Wow. That is saying a lot, especially when you consider guys like Andrew Johnson. I suppose Carter has a right to be upset. And he has a right to criticize Bush, as he has Clinton. At least he is a bi-partisan critic!

Wow, Beef, you're more lost than I thought...

Andrew Johnson was never elected President.

Carter's "live and let kill" policy with regard to world peace was a total abdication of his responsibility to the American people and the world in general.

Maybe he has a right to be upset, but his not being invited to the funeral can be summed up in one word: JUSTICE.

Oh, and ol' Jimmy somehow couldn't make it to Pope Paul VI's funeral or John Paul I's funeral ... both while he was in office ... Why the hell is he so interested in going to this one?

And if he wants to go, why doesn't he just pack a few peanuts and buy a plane ticket out to Rome? There are over a million people there. I'm sure one more won't be considered unwelcome.
