Jimmy Carter on Steroids

Back in 1979, after Jimmy Carter had pulled the rug out from under the Shah of Iran, Islamists seized power and exploited Carter’s weakness by invading our embassy and holding Americans hostage for over a year, inspiring the terror war that eventually brought us 9/11. Back when Ayatollah Khomeini was rubbing our president’s face in the dirt as a example for the Muslim world, I wished Carter was more of a man. But I should have wished for something else, as I know now that a presidential candidate who is Jimmy Carter but more of a man promises to make an even worse mess in the Middle East.

That candidate is Hillary Clinton, whom Terence Jeffrey of CNS News describes as “Jimmy Carter on steroids.” She promises to do to Musharraf just what the hapless fool Jimmy the Dhimmi did to Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, who unlike Pervez Musharraf wasn’t the only thing standing between al-Qaeda and 100 nuclear weapons.

Via NewsBusters, here’s Shrillary on CNN:

I don’t think the Pakistani government at this time under President Musharraf has any credibility at all.

When asked if she is in favor of continued financial support to keep his government from collapsing, at least her answer was free of nuance:


As Jeffrey pointed out to Wolf Blitzer soon afterwards:

Hillary Clinton is basically doing to Musharraf what Jimmy Carter did to the Shah, and the potential consequences are far greater, Wolf. We’re talking about a regime that already has nuclear weapons, al Qaeda is already present on the ground there, they have a massive Islamist movement. If we try to meddle too much in their internal politics what we could end up with is our worst nightmare: an Islamist regime armed with a nuclear weapon that’s friends with al Qaeda.

But don’t go thinking that Democrats learned nothing from the disastrous Carter Administration. It’s just that those who did learn are no longer Democrats.

  1. Hi Swamps, glad you came by. I’m not necessarily for Huck, as much as I am against all the negative talk from the right. We need to save it for the real fight. My biggest worry is Hillary getting into the White house. Either of the other two top dems would be better than her. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that though.

    UPDATE!! I just reread that comment. Hell No! None of the Dems are fit to serve. (sorry, musta been half asleep on that one)

    Damn It! What a difference 10 months can make. It’s 10-24-08 and I would take Hillary over B. Hussein Obama any day. Although, McCain/Palin is going to kick his Lying POS ass anyway.

  2. What troubles me is that I’m not convinced that Huckabee would be any better.
