Why is he so warm and subservient to this commie thug.

    Obama couldn't be troubled to go to Margaret Thatcher's funeral. But he has all the time in the world for known communists!

    As is demonstrably evident by the US's shrinking influence-its the US that has insecurity issues.

    Heya Maenad. What I was wondering.....was why Carter declined to fly on Air Force one with Obama, Clinton, and Bush?

    What do you think about that?

    Birds of a feather! Besides, who care what Carter, Clinton, and Bush do. They are not in office.

    Unless you can build a time machine and go back to post WWII there's not much we can do about that. We need to evolve and adapt to a new future that is not so dependent on playing world bully. The rest of the world is catching up to us and unless you want to nuke everyone back to the stone age we can't stop it.

    Jimmy Carter has frankly and boldly stated that the US is no longer a functioning democracy and due in large part to the concentration of power to the executive branch by his successors, little wonder to me why he wouldn't wish to travel with them, that's what I think.

    No he would have had only to look down, and Castro to look up. I am shorter than most, and no one bends down like that to look me in the eye. Obama is stumping for a seat in the UN. And he will do anything he thinks makes him favorable for it.

    JFK got a little rattled over Cuba when they had missiles trained on the US. 1962, I believe!
