Recent Presidents may have their differences but it seems they can all agree on one thing - they don't like Jimmy Carter.
A new book has revealed that George H.W Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama all dislike the one-term leader's insistence on making his views known publicly and continuing to do foreign policy work. ‘Carter gives the club a great gift, something for all the others to complain about,’ write Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy in their bookThe Presidents Club.
It was Carter who brought down America’s ally, the Shah of Iran, and brought the Ayatollah Khomeni back from exile, thereby transforming Iran into the first jihadist state, and America’s deadliest enemy. Neither Ronald Reagan nor both George Bushes could undo that. -David Horowitz
