    That is the funniest thing I have heard in a long time. Carter claiming Bush has the worst foreign policy in history. Guess what, there is one man on this earth that keeps Bush from being the worst foreign policy President ever, and that is CARTER.

    Kind of ironic isn't it? And they both claim to know Jesus!

    Carter: "We now have endorsed the concept of pre-emptive war where we go to war with another nation militarily, even though our own security is not directly threatened, We now have endorsed the concept of pre-emptive war where we go to war with another nation militarily, even though our own security is not directly threatened,"

    He wouldn't think highly of Joshua, would he?

    One of the best examples of the pot calling the kettle black that I have seen lately.

    Carter is surely senile and most likely suffering from dementia.

    This tickles me. Irrelevant is an apt assessment.

    I wish that people like Bush who have claimed that Christians and Muslims worship the same God wouldn't call themselves Christians. Actually I would broaden President Carter's statement to say that Bush is by far our WORST president ever.

    Carter and Bush are both toward the bottom of the list of our presidents. And I should know, I voted for both of them(Carter in 1976, Bush in 2000 and 2004) - to my regret. The only time I voted for a Republican or Democrat nominee for president and didn't regret it was for Reagan in 1984. I think I have learned my lesson now.

    You may be too new here to know this, but a great deal of Ken's posts have not been "pure left politics." He has made his share of right wing political posts as well. Ken has a well known penchant for changing his mind.

    The only reason Bush might be worse than Carter on foreign policy matters is that Bush has had twice as long to mess things up as Carter did.

    Thankfully, we were rid of Carter after one term. Now if there had been a viable candidate from the other side in 2004, maybe we could have got rid of GW after just one term.

    Another term and Carter might have given Alaska back to Russia. <G>

    Moderator note: I have deleted several posts. It is against the board policy to question another member's salvation. If anyone is concerned about another member's salvation, please approach the topic thru the PM system, not on the public board. And please, no personal attacks - that is against the board rules. Thank you for your cooperation.

    Actually, President Carter brokered the Camp David accord between Egypt and Israel, ending emnity and bringing a peace between those two countries that has lasted for decades. I'd call that foreign policy success.

    Even Eugene McCarthy voted for Ronald Reagan and against Carter in 1980!

    "Mr. Carter," he said, "quite simply abdicated the whole responsibility of the presidency while in office. He left the nation at the mercy of its enemies at home and abroad. He was the worst president we ever had."

    I think it is important for us to remember that there are sincere Christians on both sides of the political spectrum (although GW Bush and Carter are both left of center in my opinion)

    A man can be saved and have a genuine relationship with Christ and still be wrong from time to time.

    Or a whole bunch of the time . . .

    I can't question their Christianity because of their politics. Their actions on the other hand . . .

    I'm not happy with either of the men mentioned btw -- this is a bipartisian reflection.

    This would be the same Carter who allowed Americans to be captured in Iran? Pot. Kettle. Black. Need I go on?

    Yeah, 2 billion is a lot huh? for peace. I mean what did peace cost us in Iraq so far 500 Billion +/- and it's hardly called peace over there.
