Carter On Cheney

Jimmy Carter has a few choice words about Dick Cheney in a recent BBC interview:

Cheney has been on the wrong side of the debate on many issues, including an internal White House discussion over Syria in which the vice president is thought to be pushing a tough approach, Carter said.

"He's a militant who avoided any service of his own in the military and he has been most forceful in the last 10 years or more in fulfilling some of his more ancient commitments that the United States has a right to inject its power through military means in other parts of the world," Carter told the BBC World News America in an interview to air later on Wednesday.

"You know he's been a disaster for our country," Carter said. "I think he's been overly persuasive on President George Bush and quite often he's prevailed."

Come on, Jimmy, don't sugarcoat it like that! How do you really feel about the evil son of a bitch?

Earlier he had this to say about the Bush administration:

In a newspaper interview in May, Carter called the Bush administration the "worst in history" in international relations.

Just in international relations? I'd say they win that title across the board, in every category imaginable, hands down.
