Washington Prowler
Jimmy Carter Who?
By The Prowler

More details are emerging about the White House's decision -- really President Bush's personal decision -- not to include former President Jimmy Carter in the official U.S. delegation to the funeral of Pope John Paul II.

According to White House sources, Carter's representatives, apparently from the former president's Carter Center, reached out to the White House over the weekend and offered to lead the U.S. delegation should the President or other senior Bush administration officials not be able to attend.

"There was no misunderstanding. It wasn't Carter who made the actual call, but the message was pure Carter gumption," says a White House source. "We were getting lots of calls from lots of people looking to get on this delegation. I would say over the weekend alone we got more than 100 requests, maybe more."

Carter went public on Tuesday with his dissatisfaction at not being invited, after the White House announced that the official delegation would be made up of the current and two prior sitting Presidents, and Secretary of State Rice.

The U.S. Embassy at the Vatican has also been inundated with requests for assistance to attend the funeral on Friday. According to a State Department source, Carter's people have called there as well.

Carter did meet with Pope John Paul II, and hosted the pontiff in Washington, D.C., in 1979. Carter claimed a kinship with the Catholic priest, though it isn't clear that the Vatican thought so highly of Carter's diplomatic skills, particularly after he left office. Carter was often the wrong side of the political fence when it came to elections and policies in Latin America, where John Paul II devoted a great deal of time in the 1980s stamping out the Marxist "Liberation Theology" movement. At one point in 1979, the Vatican sought assistance from the Carter Administration State Department to limit the travels of U.S. Maryknoll missionaries to Central American countries, where they were teaching and preaching Liberation Theology alongside like-minded Latin American priests.

"The other thing that people forget is that Carter has treated President Bush very badly. He has openly criticized the President in a manner that President Clinton has not," says a Bush administration source. "He has traveled around the world bad-mouthing this president and this country's policies. I would be surprised if a single person gave a thought to including him in the delegation."

for George W Bush being a person who typically is very gracious to others, it seems to be a bit petty and disrespectful to not include Carter.

It is disrepectful, but anyone inviting the maggot moore to their box wouldn't get an invite from me either. Also Carter has been horrible at the tradition of ex-presidents not critcising sitting presidents. He hasn't deserved any respect.

so he shouldn't be included because he had Michael Moore sitting next to him?

thanks for a clear example of pettyness.

The irony of the last post is just amazing.

He shouldn't be included because he's a disgrace of an ex-president. I have no qualms with bush letting Jimmah know that actions have consequences, in Jimmah's case it's derision and irrelevance, as it should be.

Just when I'd hoped this moron would just fade away, he goes overseas and politics against our troops. Good grief what a disgusting, dispicable excuse for an ex-president. To this day it remains my eternal shame for voting for this moron. Sure makes you want to raise the voting age to about 30.


Former President Carter said Saturday the detention of terror suspects at the Guantanamo Bay Naval base was an embarrassment and had given extremists an excuse to attack the United States.

Carter also criticized the U.S.-led war in Iraq as "unnecessary and unjust."

"I think what's going on in Guantanamo Bay and other places is a disgrace to the U.S.A.," he told a news conference at the Baptist World Alliance's centenary conference in Birmingham, England. "I wouldn't say it's the cause of terrorism, but it has given impetus and excuses to potential terrorists to lash out at our country and justify their despicable acts."

Some people are mighty uncomfortable with the idea that Bush has "nucular" weapons at his disposal. Fair enough, but I think Carter's "nukeeyah" weapons were a much more potent threat to the world order.

Jimmy Cater expressing his views are neither "disgusting" nor is it "politics against our troops". Carter is speaking out against the Bush policy on enemy soldiers. one can't connect that to disrespecting the troops, or even politicizing the troops, the troops have nothing to do with what he is speaking towards. it's the policy.

Disagree all you want, but you're not even close on the rationale.

As usual you dem's have no respect for any tradition, just raw political advantage. It's pretty traditional that a former president doesn't criticise a current one. Both jimmah and bubba blow that one, although bubba has more class than carter does.

As well it's never done while overseas. Another disgusting fact.

So Jimmah travels to our staunchest ally and tells them they are full of it and should basically quit and leave us on our own. He is a pathetic excuse for an american(not to mention an EX-PRESIDENT), only a self-loathing democrat could love him. And they do.

Not only were Carter's comments against American troops (calling the war "unnecessary and unjust"), they would seem to suggest that he agrees with or at least understands the rationale or mindset of terrorists who attack soft civilian targets. There's no other way to read it. Thanks a lot, Jimmuh.

Poor Carter. He is so reviled in the U.S. for his no-balls presidency, that he gets intoxicated by the fumes of foreign faux-adulation.

Pathetic idiot of an old man.

Unfortunately even anti-american Jimmah can get a US Ship named after him. How would you like to serve us the US Jimmah Carter, the only ship in the US fleet that sails backwards and runs away from killer rabbits. Poor sailors.

Carter was in Kings Bay, Georgia, to tour the U.S.S. Jimmy Carter, a newly commissioned nuclear submarine. Carter, a former Navy submarine officer, and his wife, Rosalynn, spent Thursday night on the submerged vessel.
