New York Times writer Sheryl Gay Stolberg on Thursday highlighted glowing supporters of Jimmy Carter as she promoted a new Broadway play about the life of the former president. Stolberg parroted that "acolytes of Mr. Carter hope that 'Camp David'...will be a powerful reminder of the signature triumph of the Carter presidency and perhaps revive the decades-long effort to rehabilitate him."
The play focuses around Carter's 1978 efforts to negociate a peace treaty between Israel and Egypt. Stolberg allowed the type of self-aggrandizing comments that – if spoken by a Republican – would prompt the Times to make accusations of mental instability or a messianic complex. She related, "Mr. Carter told the playwright [Lawrence Wright] and the producer that he felt 'God wanted him to play a role' in Middle East peace."
Stephen Colbert boosted Jimmy Carter's new book on Tuesday's Colbert Report – a mere day after the former president blamed Catholicism, as well as the Southern Baptist Convention, for the abuse of women across the globe. Carter offered a toned-down version of this eyebrow-raising argument: "If you're a male religious leader, and you want to stay in unchallenged power and not have women challengers, then you can pick some of those things that...St. Paul said."
The Democrat also claimed that he would consider joining the Catholic Church if they would ordain women: [MP3 audio available here; video below the jump]
"Well, March Madness is in full swing. No, not the NCAA tournament, but President Obama pushing ObamaCare despite the fact that nobody wants it."
Former president and foreign policy guru -- well, in his mind, at least -- Jimmy Carter and the Democrats' embrace of a convicted elected fraudster were also targets of Jodi's wit in the March 25 edition of NewsBusted, the NewsBusters original YouTube comedy short.

Television history was made last night when a guest on "Late Show with David Letterman," for quite possibly the first and last time, used the words "murdered" and "aborted" in the same sentence.
The person doing the talking was former president Jimmy Carter, who's making the rounds to plug his new book, "A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power." (Video after the jump)
Liberal CBS late night host David Letterman interviewed President Jimmy Carter on Monday night and used the opportunity to lobby the former president to push for greater action on “climate change.”
Speaking with the Georgia Democrat, Letterman gushed over how as president Carter installed solar panels on the roof of the White House before asking if “it will take a global mandate to do anything about climate change?” [See video below.]
President Jimmy Carter must watch a lot of MSNBC because he did an excellent job pushing their liberal talking points. The Georgia Democrat appeared on the March 23rd “Morning Joe” to promote his latest book and subsequently repeated MSNBC’s liberal agenda.
Appearing on Monday, Carter falsely claimed that “Women get about 23% less pay for men for the same job" an incorrect statistic that MSNBC has been peddling across the network as of late. [See video below.]
President Jimmy Carter stopped by MSNBC’s "Morning Joe" on Monday March 24, and was immediately treated to a slobbering video montage courtesy of co-host Mika Brzezinski.
Brzezinski, whose father Zbigniew Brzezinski served as Carter’s National Security Advisor, narrated a five minute pre-taped segment highlighting her time in the White House. The segment ignored the negatives of the Carter Administration but was full of sappy pictures of a young Mika at the White House where she recalled that she “named my pet rabbit after the man who became the first president of Iran after the 1979 revolution, Bunny Sadr.” [See video below.]
Jimmy Carter has blamed the Catholic and Southern Baptist churches for the abuse of women around the world. According to Carter, men around the world use the doctrine of those churches on the role of women as justification for abusing women.
Appearing on Monday's Morning Joe, the former president said: "with the writing of St. Paul, you can selectively take verses out of the Bible and you can justify women not being able to be priests and so forth, so the Catholic church and the Southern Baptist Convention and others quite often say well women are not qualified to have an equal role in the service of God as men. And of course men all over the world take this as kind of a proof that they can abuse their wives or pay less pay, you know?" View the video after the jump.
NBC’s Andrea Mitchell sat down with President Jimmy Carter for an exclusive interview that aired on the March 23rd Meet the Press and from the start fawned over the Georgia Democrat.
Mitchell hyped how she “spoke with him at the Carter Center in Atlanta about his new book, "A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power." We also talked about the crisis in Ukraine as well as his distant relationship with President Obama.”
As he was rushed into the emergency room at George Washington University Hospital, a grievously wounded President Ronald Reagan prayed for John Hinckley, the man who had just tried to kill him.
"He was a mixed-up young man from a fine family," Reagan wrote in his memoirs, "An American Life." "That day, I asked the Lord to heal him, and to this day, I still do." (Audio after the jump)
It's pointless to pay attention to foreign policy when a Democrat is president, unless you enjoy having your stomach in a knot. As long as a Democrat sits in the White House, America will be repeatedly humiliated, the world will become a much more dangerous place -- and there's absolutely nothing anybody can do about it. (Though this information might come in handy when voting for president, America!)
The following stroll down memory lane is but the briefest of summaries. For a full accounting of Democratic national security disasters, please read my book, "Treason: Liberal Treachery From the Cold War to the War on Terrorism."
"Pundits say President Obama is starting to lose support from his own Party. Give you an idea how bad it's gotten, today Jimmy Carter compared him to Jimmy Carter."
