Nutmeg & Peanuts: Carter Visits Connecticut

Former President Jimmy Carter, winner of the 2002 No Balls Peace Prize, came to Quinnipiac University yesterday afternoon to treat a private audience to a lecture on how nuclear weapons are bad. His appearance is a part of a 50th anniversary celebration of Albert Schweitzer's call for an end to nuclear weapons, and a beginning to growing gigantic droopy mustaches.

A conference that kicked off on the dignified note of a professor dressing up as Schweitzer with a big fake mustache and reading his "Declaration of Conscience on the Dangers of Nuclear Weapons" would hardly be complete without an appearance by the worst president in the history of our Republic.

It is interesting that Carter's appearance at Quinnipiac follows so closely the appearance of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at Columbia University. Carter's ineptness in office allowed the shah in Iran to be deposed, the Iranian revolution to take hold of that nation, the Iranian hostage crisis to take place, and for radical Islam to establish a theocracy and gain a major foothold in the Middle East. In a way, Carter is indirectly responsible for this odious dictator and thug being in power.

Who could be surprised at that? Carter's foreign policy consisted of showing no resolve against the Soviet Union, leaving South Korea defenseless, giving away the Panama Canal, letting Marxists take over in Nicaragua, letting the Soviets invade Afghanistan, and apologizing wherever he could for America being America. His post-presidential years have been spent in the company and praise of America's enemies.

So here is Jimmy Carter... here in Connecticut to tell us how bad nuclear weapons are. Well, thanks Jimmy! Unfortunately, Jimmy Carter has helped pave the way for a hostile, radical Islamic Iran to obtain nuclear weapons. He places the burden on America to disarm, not on America's enemies across the globe... that's because after all these years he still sees America as the enemy.

Bravo HH!!

A great post.

Carter sees nuclear weapons as bad--big surprise Had he been re-elected, the Soviet Union could well have surpassed us in the arms race and communism would be thriving throughout eastern Europe today.

Instead, the man who defeated him in 1980 knew that the only way to fight back against an enemy was through strength.

The arms race that president took hold of destroyed the economy of the Soviet Union and resulted in the tearing down of the Berlin Wall.

Thank God Carter only served four miserable years as president.

HH - Terrific post!
Carter is such a fraud.
Unfortunately people eat his words up ... how about a round of Kumbayaa, anyone?

I wonder if he wore his cardigan.

I will never forgive myself.

In 1976 when I was in the 3rd grade I voted for Jimmy Carter in a mock election.

Can I ever live it down?

See, that's funny... in my mock school election I voted for Ron Reagan.

Shame would be mine later, when I was a high school lib.

Thankfully, I grew up.
