Jimmy Carter on Meeting Castro: We Welcomed Each Other Like Old Friends

Jimmy Carter Does Cuba.

Jimmy Carter left Cuba today… But not before he praised “old friend” Fidel Castro.
The Washington Post reported:

Former President Jimmy Carter left Cuba on Wednesday without gaining the release of a U.S. government contractor jailed the past 16 months, a deflating end to what was otherwise a groundbreaking visit…

Carter sat down with revolutionary icon Fidel Castro a day after holding talks with President Raul Castro.

“We welcomed each other as old friends,” Carter said of the meeting with the 84-year-old former Cuban leader. He said Castro “seems to be in good health.”

Of course, Jimmy Carter praising mass murderer Fidel Castro surprises no one.

The Real Cuba added this on Carter’s visit:

An idiot as president, and an idiot as former president.

Jimmy Carter gave a “press conference” at Havana’s Palacio de Convenciones, and called not only for an end to the embargo but also for a release of the 5 Cuban spies currently in U.S. jails.

“We should immediately lift the embargo,” Carter said, as well as all restrictions on travel to Cuba.

The Useful Idiot also asked for the release of the 5 Cuban spies, saying that they have already spent 12 years in jail and that further incarceration is “unwarranted.”

After visiting Gross at an undisclosed location this morning, Carter addressed the need for him to be released “because he is innocent of any serious threat to the Cuban people.”

No, socotroco, he is not in jail for being a threat to the Cuban people, he is in jail for being a threat to the brutal dictator in Cuba, who is scared to death of the Internet and is trying to prevent the Cuban people from having access to news of what is happening in their own country and around the world.

And, Bablu had this on Jimmy the useful idiot:

During a press conference today, which came at the conclusion of his trip to communist Cuba, America’s own traveling idiot, Jimmy Carter, lived up (or down) to his reputation of being an idiot and an insensitive dolt. Bypassing ancillary issues such as the lack of freedom on the island and the enslavement of 11-million Cubans, Carter instead demanded that the U.S. release the Cuban 5. Those are the same five convicted Cuban spies who are serving prison time for espionage and the murder of four innocent American pilots who were shot down over international waters by Castro MiGs.

Barack Obama may have Jimmy beat as worst president. But, he has his work cut out for himself if he wants to steal the title of America’s worst former president from the peanut farmer.

    It’s early times yet. I figure BO has thirty years to catch up with Jimmy.

    jimmyboy carter wouldn’t amount to a pimple on Reagan’s ass, even with his alzheimer’s.

    Why is it that the left continually denies the evil that is the Castro brothers? So Jimmah Cartah goes to Cuba, to show the world what a useful idiot he remains.

    If you want the truth about Cuba, talk to any Cuban American (probably the most patriotic segment of our society) or read Humberto Fontova’s book, The Real Che Guevara. Fontova, a Cuban immigrant, will tell you things about Castro’s Cuba that will make you heart sick and want to bash the next useful idiot you see in a Che t-shirt. Or research the story of Cuban doctor, Biscet.

    But leave it to Jimmie Carter, who just can’t seem to get over the fact that he is no longer president, and no one cares what he says, to pimp himself out to the keepers of the gulag.

    Jimmy had become one of the best ex-Presidents, until he gave up that title in the last decade.

  • I wonder, is there a variant of alzheimers that’s expressed by the patient becoming increasingly clue resistant?

  • RedBeard

    #10: Neo, I once thought that too, but I’ve come to believe that Carter has not changed at all. The only difference these days is that he spend less energy trying to hide his true nature.

    He is a disturbed, and disturbing, soul.

  • Scott

    American POWs in Vietnam were tortured and killed by Cuban interrogators sent by Castro…Castro tried to place nuclear weapons ninety miles from Florida and almost started a nuclear war in the process. Castro stole (nationalized) the property and businesses of tens of thousands of Cubans in order to bring Stalinism to the Western hemisphere…And, our idiot former President. You know, the one who gave the Panama canal away, glad-hands the old communist dictator like a long lost brother. Disgusting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Is it just me or does Ros look a lot like Valerie from “The Princess Bride”?

    Just sayin’.

    As with Dingell and Lautenberg, you get to an age where you either can’t, or don’t care to hide it anymore.

    What is it with these democrat Presidents and their love of third world dictators, terrorists and communists? Obama was the first President to meet and shake hands with Col Gaddafi. The man who admitted Libya’s role in the Pan AM 103 bombing and paid 1.5 billion in restitution to families of the 270 victims…Bill Clinton pardoned puerto rican terrorists and gave satellite technology to the Chinese. You know, the communist Chinese who now run the Panama canal that Jimmy Carter gave away…I’m afraid America will cease to exist as we know it with the continued election of democrats to National Leadership…These last three democrat Presidents have led the United States from Superpower to bankrupt appeaser of third world despots. Disgusting!

    Jimmy Carter is a simpleton. Democrats must really be proud of themselves. They elect nothing but idiots and lechers.

    First, we have to make Obozo into the next ex-President, starting January 2013.

  • L.E. Liesner

    What did you expect from, I never met a communist I couldn’t love Jimmy the peanut farmer. And our present socialist leader isn’t any better. What a God foresaken government we have.

    I’m waiting for Jimmy to go meet the Ayatolla Kohmeini and greet him like an old friend.

  • if this were seventy years ago he be standing there with that big grin on his face shaking the hand of hitler or stalin. carter never met an oppressive dictator he didn’t like. he was the first president in our history that hated this country. unfortunately the american people didn’t learn their lesson and elected a second one, the great barack obama.

    “…what was otherwise a groundbreaking visit…”

    The only thing that was “groundbreaking” was the impression in the dirt made the presidential kneepads that Jimmy was wearing. /spit

    I suspect Jimmy boy got wrapped up in his initials and forgot he was but a mortal man. Must have been a humbling shock to have failed so miserably as a president

    Carter is still fighting for the title of Worst President Ever.

    What was the point of him going over there AGAIN! A waste of tax payers money, I can.’t believe it totally pointless.

  • OC Rick

    Isn’t that how you make friends?
    I was born in 62, over the years I realized the boogie man of
    Cuba is Garbage.
    We (as in people) have much in common.
    Now that Fidel is dying, why not create a new generational friendship
    between our nations?
    or should we treat them like Iraq?

    Can anyone name a dictator Carter didn’t like?

  • RedBeard

    #34: Rick, that’s a great idea. Let’s do that. But first, don’t you think the people of Cuba need to be rid of the tyrants who have turned that country into a stinking cesspool and prison camp?

    Smiling and hugging tin pot dictators does nothing to help the captive and oppressed people.

  • STL Hawkeye

    What a tool. I go back and forth on which Presdent is the worst in the last 100 years. Carter. Obama. Carter. Obama. Tough call.

    Good God Rosalynn Carter looks like the Crypt Keeper.

  • Adirondack Patriot

    I think Jimmy brought Rosalynn along just to make Fidel feel better about how crappy he looks.

    Please, Mr. Carter, ESAD.

    When did Mrs. Carter pass away? Looks like it was years ago. Wow.
