ACE notes that Jimmy Carter’s Carter Center doesn’t even acknowledge the Iraqi elections and that in September the former presidents predicted:
I personally do not believe they’re going to be ready for the election in January.
He noted that he thought that democracy was a good thing, though:
I think that’s a very admirable thing, sure. You could list 50 countries in the world that don’t have democracies, and it would be better if they all had democracies.
It’s an admirable thing, “sure”.
No wonder so many seem to think he’s the personification of good and right in the world. So now that there are 48 on his list, is that a “very admirable thing”? Or isn’t he sure?
