Poor Jimmy

I wasn't alive when Jimmy Carter was President. It seems to me that he was a pretty decent guy trying to do a good job at being president who get caught by the Iran Hostage Crisis. Since then (he was only 57 when Reagan replaced him) he's done a great deal of good both for this nation and people around the world.

Apparently I'm wrong.

Move America Forward [http://www.moveamericaforward.org/] has started a new effort to censure Pres. Carter. The creatively named site [http://www.censurejimmycarter.com/] lists the reasons:

Since leaving office, President Jimmy Carter has repeatedly undermined U.S. foreign policy, criticized the missions of the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, as well as embracing known terrorists and terrorist organizations.
You know, things like making sure that Palestinians didn't starve to death, publicly calling for investigations into Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay. And winning that damn Nobel Peace Prize. Just like it says in Patton: "Americans love to fight." Doesn't Jimmy know that all this peace mongering and helping the poor and building houses for people doesn't fit with the free market ideal?

These people are twisted.
