A preview of an upcoming epic Duel of the Pygmy Presidents (One term edition)? Jimmy Carter travels to Israel and takes a few shots at Barack Obama:
In Jerusalem, Carter Derides Netanyahu and Obama
On Monday, he [Mr. Peanut] ramped up his years of criticism of Israeli policy by saying that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lacked the courage of his predecessors and that he had abandoned the two-state solution that has been the accepted framework for resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for decades. And just two weeks before the American election, he was almost as critical of President Obama, saying his administration has shirked the historical role played by the United States in the region.
As for Mr. Obama, a fellow Democrat, the former president said, “The U.S. government policy the last two to three years has basically been a rapid withdrawal from any kind of controversy.”
He added: “Every president has been a very powerful factor here in advocating this two-state solution. That is now not apparent.”
Of course, Jimmah has no reputation for being pro-Israel, so it isn't clear whether it is Romney or Obama that benefits from this denunciaton.
