Former President Jimmy Carter, who once accused Israel of being an "apartheid state" worse than South Africa, has gone even further, rebuking the Jewish State for the way it has waged war with Hamas while actually siding with the terrorists.

But from Row F at the Arena Stage Thursday evening and in the midst of a star-studded Washington crowd, former President Jimmy Carter was given a rare glimpse of himself and his presidency during the premier of “Camp David.” The new play revisits the 13 […]
Back in 2008, even those who refrained from drinking the Kool-Aid had no idea how bad it would be. Some said electing Barack Obama would be like giving the disastrous Jimmy Carter a second term.

In response to Obama's Imperial Presidency: Just what America really needed: a fusion of Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon.
