Republicans to Reality:

NEVER remove the Hamas from the Terror list until they somehow have the courage to pull a 180 on their approach.

Obama better not listen to Carter or else oBama will fail in the public eye more miserably than Peanut Boy.

How there is still any question as to whether or not Carter is the worst president of all times is beyond me . . . .

I'm not sure that that is possible. Carter did after all make it possible for this guy to get elected . . . .

The fact that the O even got elected in the first place given that his campaign had nothing of substance shows that even the impossible, however improbable, must be possible

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) A senior Hamas official praised former President Jimmy Carter on Wednesday, a day after he met with the group, but said he failed to persuade the Islamic rulers of Gaza to accept international demands, including recognizing Israel.

Carter is such a friggin idiot.

"Work with them! Work with them! Even though they still want to kill you!"

Carter is the epitome of 'fighting for peace may be like screwing for virginity, but praying for peace is like wishing for a bullet in the brain'.

[I]Obama's Jimmy Carter Problem?.....Nice photo of Carter with the head of Hamas

Former President Jimmy Carter plans to urge President Barack Obama to take the Palestinian militant group Hamas off the U.S. terrorist list in meetings later this week, Washington Democrats and the Obama administration collectively cringed.

"The president has addressed Hamas questions, including in the Egypt speech," an administraton official said. "[We] won't have more to say about this."

"Just like with President Clinton, Carter is becoming a huge problem and a growing concern for Obama," a Washington Middle East hand said. "They are very pissed with him."

"OLd Liberal Former Presidents Are always a Problem .They Never Can Keep Their Mouths Shut and Bloviate to Anyone Who Will Listen !"

After observing Lebanon's elections, Carter visited Damascus last week and met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Foreign Minister Walid Muallem, as well as exiled Hamas political leader Khaled Meshaal. This week, he met with Israeli settlers in the West Bank and toured Gaza with top Hamas leader Ismail Haniya as his guide. His trip to Damascus came a day ahead of that of Obama Middle East peace envoy George Mitchell.

Carter's objectives in Gaza, a Washington Middle East expert familiar with the matter told The Cable, are "to open up Gaza, and to see what he can do to pave the way to some [sort of] engagement between Hamas and the U.S.," the expert said, on condition of anonymity, cautioning that he didn't think any such engagement would happen anytime soon. "And to see whether Hamas can shift its position, and the U.S. can shift its position. ... I think he is smart enough to realize they aren't going to come off the terror list."

"Don't forget people in Gaza were spreading rumors last week that Carter was bringing Hamas a letter from Obama," the expert added. "It's absurd, but it made the rounds for a day."

Don't overreact to an unconfirmed news report, agreed veteran U.S. Middle East peace negotiator Aaron David Miller. "This is Jimmy Carter being Jimmy Carter," Miller said by email. "I didn't see any confirmation that Carter intends to ask the administration to remove Hamas from the terrorism list; more likely he'll urge Obama at the right time to consider opening up a dialogue with Hamas."

"But that's a key to an empty room right now given everything that Obama is trying to do with Netanyahu and [Palestinian President Mahmoud] Abbas," Miller continued. "In fact, the way to lose both of them and much of Congress to boot would be to do precisely what the former president recommends."
