Making the World Worse
By Mike Rappaport

Unfortunately, one of the things that would both weaken the US and have devestating consequences for the world is actually constitutional, albeit unlikely: Making Jimmy Carter President of the US again. Carter's most recent gem:

Carter, who led an 85-member international observer team from around the world organized by the 'National Democratic Institute' in partnership with 'The Carter Center,' urged the international community to directly or indirectly fund the new Palestinian Government even though it will be led by an internationally-declared foreign terror organization.

"The Palestinian Government is destitute, and in desperate financial straits. I hope that support for the new government will be forthcoming," Carter said at a Jerusalem press conference.

He added that if international law barred donor countries from directly funding a Hamas-led government than the US and the EU should bypass the Palestinian Authority and provide the "much-needed" money to the Palestinians via non-governmental channels such as UN agencies.

"Regardless of the government, I would hope that potential donors find alternative means to be generous to the Palestinian people [even] if the donor decides to bypass the Palestinian government completely," Carter said, stressing that his main concern was to avert the "suffering" of the Palestinian people, which he said could lead to a new cycle of violence.
Remarkably, Carter embraces the democracy among the Palestinians but does not seem to recognize that the Palestinians are responsible for having freely chosen radical terrorists to run their country. Yeah, we should help them and "avert their suffering."

It would be interesting to imagine what the world would look like under this boob, but you don't really have to do so: It is in the history books: 1977-1980.

What is unbelieveable is that anyone listens to this guy.
