Jimmy Carter: Partisan Hack

In the late '90s, we saw many on the right losing their minds over Bill Clinton. When I say losing their minds, I am referring to the penchant to find ways to criticize Clinton in every manner possible regardless of how much a stretch had to be made.

The same thing is now happening with the left as it relates to George Bush. This week's Der Spiegel interview with Jimmy Carter is case in point. Carter seems to be gunning for the title of "Worst Ex-President" with statements like this:
"I don't think that Israel has any legal or moral justification for their massive bombing of the entire nation of Lebanon."
I suppose the random firing of rockets indiscriminently into civilian population centers doesn't justify any type of response. How can anyone take Jimmy Carter seriously anymore?

It is sad that Carter has squandered away his good reputation to become a partisan hack.
