Jimmy Carter waxes poetic about fidel

In Der Spiegel, here is an excerpt:

SPIEGEL: You’ve written about your meeting with Fidel Castro. He appears seriously ill now and Cuban exiles are partying already in the streets of Miami. You are probably not in the mood to join them.

Carter: No, that’s true. Just because someone is ill I don’t think there should be a celebration of potential death. And my own belief is that Fidel Castro will recover. He is two years younger than I am, so he’s not beyond hope.

SPIEGEL: You sought to normalize relations with Castro, but that never happened. Has anything been achieved through Cuba’s isolation?

Carter: In my opinion, the embargo strengthens Castro and perpetuates communism in Cuba. A maximum degree of trade, tourism, commerce, visitation between our country and Cuba would bring an earlier end to Castro’s regime.

What a wonderful humanitarian you are, Jimmy. Thanks for teaching us those “Christian” values you hold so dear. BTW, Jimmy, there’s a phonecall for you from Oscar Biscet, Darsi Ferrer and Guillermo Fariñas. Will you take their call? No? I didn’t think so.

  1. his comments were even more obscene about Israel where he criticized Israel for defending itself.

    How can such a brilliant man (he’s a nuclear engineer) be so friggin clueless?????????

  2. We, the sane people of the state of Georgia wish to appologize for the IDIOT we foisted upon the rest of America. It won’t happen again.

  3. I agree with Patricio……Jimmy Carter just keeps proving he was the worst president this country has ever had. He sickens me and I consider him a traitor to this country.

  4. And the scum bag gave away the Panama Canal to – gasp – the Panamanians, – and now they say the Chinese! Hey Carter Teddy Roosvelt stole the region from Colombia fair and square!

  5. He needs to stick to cultivatin’ and eatin’ goober peas and pissin’ Billy Beer. Since he’s good with wood, he should keep quietly busy building his friend fidel a fine, pine box.

  6. Pat, not only is jimma worst president of the modern era he is the worst EX-president of the modern era…

  7. As time goes on, he keeps drifting further and further away from the reservation … why can’t this treacherous moron keep his fat mouth shut??!!!!

    That interview was so utterly disgusting. Aaargh!!!

  8. This man has always been clueless. I will never understand how he got to be president. He may be a nice person. But a terrible President. He always preached human rights but delt with the wrong people.

  9. What the ever loving humanitarian he is. We all know how he despises the US, and just exactly what his sentiments are in regards to Israel. Then again he see Hamas as a nice bunch of fellas to have a beer with too.

  10. About Carter,somebody above,hits the nail on the
    head when saying he is a fine person,but a president who dealt to very wrong people.On the
    other hand,I read today that the Archbishop of
    Havana,the Cardenal Ortega Alamino celebrated a
    mass on the Holy Heart of Jesus Parrish in el
    Vedado to pay tribute and pray for the Soul of
    Arcos Bernes,who was good catholic,good cuban
    and one of the pioneer of Cuban Anti-castro dissidence.May his soul rests in GOD HANDS.

  11. I no longer believe that Carter is “a good person” who has been deceived. He’s no good person — he’s a very deliberate has-been, and it’s a hunch of mine that he’s bitter about his disastrous legacy and is lashing back ….. while looking mousy and saintly.

    Some Christian people who give him a pass, forget that the devil used to live in Heaven before he got kicked out. No different here. Carter is not stupid, he’s malicious.
