Bush is no Jimmy Carter, who teaches Sunday school every week. Who travels the world in the name of peace. Who is beloved by all.

I disagree with you on Jimmy Carter. You are not that well informed with regards to Mr. Carter's time in office. He was the best friend of Mr. Reza Shah Pehalvi. His foreign policy was as deplorable as any american president since world war 1. Read Noam Chomsky on Jimmy Carter and it might help you.

Dear anonymous: I've read Chomsky on Carter. I like both Noam chomsky and carter. Without dwelling into much details: You would do your own knowledge bank a lot of good if you read any independent report about the beautiful and wonderful work 'Habitat for Humanity International' run by Mr Cater is doing. I know it because I have seen it.

Go visit an African kid and see how he feels under a roof in 50 degree centigr temp in the cruel African summers.

Foriegn policy. Well! There are no saints! Only lesser evils.

Though Carter praised the Iranian Shah as a valuable leader, when a popular uprising against the monarchy broke out in Iran, the Carter administration did not intervene. He allowed the Shah asylum in US in 1980, for medical treatment. Though later that year the Shah left the U.S. and died in Egypt.

Btwn...how can you forget carter's departure from policy to bring peace in the middle-east. The Camp David Accords. To this date, there is peace between the nations of Israel and Egypt.
