Jimmy vs. Jimmy… His Bush-Bash Lie Caught on Tape

On Saturday… Jimmy Carter told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, “I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history…”

But… Today Jimmy Carter backtracked on his Bush-Bashing comments on The Today Show:

Former President Jimmy Carter is backing off his remark this weekend that the Bush administration’s foreign policy “has been the worst in history,” telling TODAY during an exclusive interview Monday that his comment was “careless” and widely misinterpreted.

“I think Richard Nixon had a very good and productive foreign policy. My remarks were maybe careless or misinterpreted, but I wasn’t comparing the overall administration, and I certainly was not talking personally about any president,” said Carter.

“Are you saying now that you believe now that [your remarks] were careless or reckless?” Vieira asked.

“Well, I think they were, yes, because they were interpreted as comparing [Bush’s] whole administration to all other administrations,” Carter said. “What I was actually doing was responding to a question about foreign policy between Richard Nixon and this administration. I think this administration’s foreign policy compared to President Nixon’s was much worse.”

Jimmy says he was “misintrepreted”.
Here are both quotes from Jimmy Carter- You be the judge:

As far as foreign policy goes… Democratic President Jimmy Carter watched communists take over: Ethiopia, South Yemen (located at the mouth of the Red Sea where they could block Mideast oil shipments and access to the Suez Canal), Afghanistan, Angola, Cambodia, Mozambique, Grenada and Nicaragua- all on his watch… not to mention the Iran hostage debacle.
