You know you're in trouble when . . . .

Not even Jimmy Carter
can stomach the Obama
foreign policy.
Lots of GOPers like the narrative that President Barack Obama will be the second coming of Jimmie Carter, a one-term president pretty much rejected and reviled by his own party the moment he is out of office.

That's low.  (Carter's abyssmal presidency is such an easy target.)

This is lower, however:  Carter himself has now bailed on Obama:

A former U.S. president is accusing the current president of sanctioning the "widespread abuse of human rights" by authorizingdrone strikes to kill suspected terrorists.
Jimmy Carter, America's 39 th president, denounced the Obama administration for "clearly violating" 10 of the 30 articles of theUniversal Declaration of Human Rights, writing in a New York Times op-ed on Monday that the "United States is abandoning its role as the global champion of human rights."
"Instead of making the world safer, America's violation of international human rights abets our enemies and alienates our friends," Carter wrote.
