When Even Jimmy Carter is Ripping Obama’s Foreign Policy…

You know there's a problem

He once “lost” the U.S. Embassy in Iran. He once spoke of “malaise” in America. He many times has defended Hamas. But one thing even Jimmy Carter is aware of is that Barack Obama’s foreign policy doesn’t amount to a bag of peanuts. And being a peanut farmer, he would know.

Speaking to the Ft. Worth Star Telegram, the former president let his thoughts fly on Obama. “First of all, we waited too long [on ISIS]. We let the Islamic State build up its money, capability, and strength and weapons while it was still in Syria. Then when [ISIS] moved into Iraq, the Sunni Muslims didn’t object to their being there and about a third of the territory in Iraq was abandoned.”

Truth. When Jimma’s critiquing your foreign policy and it actually seems to make sense, you know we’re living in Bizarro World. “Sometimes he draws red lines in the sand in the Mideast and then, when the time comes, he doesn’t go through with it,” Carter added. He went on to say that when two of the president’s former defense secretaries are writing tell-all books while he’s still in office, Obama must be doing something wrong.

Of course, Jimmy couldn’t just leave it at that, as he always has to say at least ONE stupid thing per interview. Regarding the overwhelming criticism Obama has received, “A lot of it is based on racism,” he said. I’m assuming he doesn’t count himself among the racists, since, you know…he’s criticizing the president pretty badly here.

It’s one thing to get blasted by Bill Clinton or even George W. Bush (who’s too classy to criticize), but the fact that Barry’s now facing fire on international affairs from the 90-year old peanut enthusiast who’s been out of the White House for nearly 35 years — and who had one of the weakest foreign policies in presidential history — has got to sting.
