Jimmy Carter

James Taranto points to an article by Shmuley Boteach that sums up what I've always suspected about Jimmy Carter:

The real explanation behind his limitless hostility to Israel is a total lack of any moral understanding.

Carter wants to do what's just. His heart's in the right place. He just can't figure out what the right is. He is, and always has been, a man of good intentions bereft of good judgment. He invariably finds himself defending tyrants and dictators at the expense of their oppressed peoples. Not because he is a bad man, but because he is a confused man.
I've always been impressed with Jimma's sincerity. Too bad it's wed to his poor judgment.

Perhaps Carter somewhere sometime heard that "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions!"......... thanks for helping with the pavement Jimmy!
