Please For the Love of God Jimmy Carter Just Shut Up

I swear President Jimmy Carter is the most self absorbed politican I know. I remember watching him at the King funeral this year. Jesus, Mary and Joesph, He talked about his Nobel peace prize and his Carter Center, etc etc while he was suppose to be eulogizing Mrs King. But this takes the cake. I swear the man is senile.

From Yahoo news-
"Former US president Jimmy Carter lashed out at British Prime Minister Tony Blair for being "so compliant and subservient" to the Bush administration in Washington.

"I have been surprised and extremely disappointed with Tony Blair's behaviour," Carter told the Sunday Telegraph newspaper as he promoted his new book "Faith and Freedom."

"I think that, more than any other person in the world, the prime minister could have had a moderating influence on Washington, and he has not," said the 81-year-old former head of state.

He faulted Blair for not having been a constraint on US President George W. Bush's decision to invade Iraq in March 2003 -- an invasion which, he said, subverted the fight against global terrorism.

"We now have a situation where America is so unpopular overseas that, even in countries like Egypt and Jordan, our approval ratings are less than five percent," said Carter, who was in the White House from 1977 to 1981.

"It's a shameful and pitiful state of affairs, and I hold your British prime minister to be substantially responsible for being so compliant and subservient"
