Worst US President In History Complains Second Worst US President Doesn’t Call Him For Advice

President Barack Obama does not call the oldest surviving former president for advice.

That’s according to former president Jimmy Carter, who told NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell in an advance clip of Sunday’s “Meet the Press” that he and the current president have a fractured relationship over Middle East policy.

“That’s a hard question for me to answer, you know, with complete candor,” Carter said in response to Mitchell’s question about why Carter’s other successors — Clinton, both Bushes, and even Reagan — called upon him, but not Obama.

“I think the problem was that — in dealing with the issue of peace in between Israel and Egypt — the Carter Center has taken a very strong and public position of equal treatment between the Palestinians and the Israelis. And I think this was a sensitive area in which the president didn’t want to be involved,” he added.

With all due respect, Obama seems to be doing a good enough job screwing up the US-Israel relationship without the advice of peanut boy.

In other news, doesn’t Carter look like he’s got one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel?

    Who the worst and second worst are is debatable. Lately, everything Obama touches is turning into bupkes.

    Carter is on Hamas and Hezbollah’s payroll. He says he is.

    In that same interview, Carter also believes that the U.S. government is spying on him, so he communicates with world leaders by snail mail instead of email. If he can’t trust the government, who else can?

    So the clear implication is that Carter believes the Jewish Lobby has a strangle hold on Obama and that’s why Obama won’t take his calls. Carter is an anti-Semite and a schmuck.

    Wow, feels like I just walked into an episode of “The Twilight Zone.” Obama the second-worst (or even worst)?!!? Do any of you remember how bad “W” was? Good thing we don’t decide who sits in the Oval Office by taking a poll of IsraellyCool readers. Seems like a lot of you are living in an alternate reality. Friendly advice: less Fox News watching in your life.

      You’re seriously surprised that a pro-Israel blog would be less inclined to suffer from Bush derangement syndrome? The amazing thing to me is the capacity for Obamabots to delude themselves.

      • Jim from Iowa

        I’m not saying Obama has been, so far, one of our greatest presidents or even in the top ten, but the worst or as bad as Jimmy Carter?!!? Give the American people credit for something. We did throw Carter out of office and re-elected Obama, both based on sound reasoning by the American electorate. Shouldn’t a president be allowed to complete his presidency before we all start to characterize his presidency as if we already know how the next two years are going to go? Maybe a little more fairness and perspective is in order.

          Bush was reelected to a second term as well. And 5 years of turning the world upside down through a clueless at best foreign policy is enough for anyone to judge. The world is a less safe place since Obama surrendered to every evil regime and terrorist organization on the planet. Lets count them shall we – Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda, Russia, Syria, Iran, North Korea….. He’s surrendered so many times you’d think he was French, not Kenyan

            I like hyperbole a lot. And you use it to great affect. But it doesn’t make for a serious political argument, if that was your intent.

              I’m not trying to enter into a serious political argument. That would be pointless

    • Norman_In_New_York

      Our recent presidents form a Mount Rushmore of incompetence.

      • Jim from Iowa

        On that we can agree completely, Norman.
