Because he didn't get it back then and he still doesn't get it now.
Former President Carter says President Bush's administration is "the worst in history" in international relations, taking aim at the White House's policy of pre-emptive war and its Middle East diplomacy.
The criticism from Carter, which a biographer says is unprecedented for the 39th president, also took aim at Bush's environmental policies and the administration's "quite disturbing" faith-based initiative funding.
"I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history," Carter told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in a story that appeared in the newspaper's Saturday editions. "The overt reversal of America's basic values as expressed by previous administrations, including those of George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon and others, has been the most disturbing to me."
No former president in U.S. history has ever been more disrespectful of a current President than Jimmy Carter whose own presidency was plagued by unemployment, the rise of radical Islam (thanks to his lack of support for The Shah of Iran which then led to American hostages being held captive for more then 400 days), the rise of Saddam Hussein and the appointment of activist judges who took God out of schools, turned criminals out to the streets and helped turn American culture into a liberal cesspool. Any wonder why over the last 30 years Americans have rarely elected a Democratic President? You have to look no further than the disgrace that was the Carter administration and everytime Carter opens his mouth he reminds of that.
