As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Oh No. Jimmy Carter is Headed to North Korea.

This is bad. Jimmy Carter is reportedly going to North Korea to try to free an American citizen being held there.

You see, here’s the problem. Jimmy Carter is like 107 years old and has no idea what he’s doing. I mean, he’s in pretty good possession of his faculties, but he has never known what he’s doing when it comes to foreign policy or anything else that doesn’t involve constructing cheap housing by hand in low income neighborhoods.

Jimmy Carter 2
No problem, I got this

So he’s going to negotiate with the North Koreans to release someone named Kenneth Bae, who supposedly went into the country as a missionary and found out too late that the tyrants who run the place really aren’t into that sort of thing. And so instead of converting the Godless he wound up as a pawn of international diplomacy.

I feel for Kenneth and I think we should be making efforts to get him released. But really, he should have thought this through a little better.

Now, the North Koreans see Carter, and they think, Ahh, here comes Obama. Because, even though the White House emphasized that this is a “private trip,” the North Koreans won’t think it is because they assume that Jimmy is still part of the government in some fashion because where they live, nobody leaves senior government service with his head still connected to his thorax.

Heck, I’m not even sure Carter isn’t up to something on behalf of the White House, given the haphazard way this administration conducts foreign policy.

And so, Carter will start negotiating, and all of a sudden the North Koreans will put something significant on the table, and Carter will call the White House, and they’ll be like, “Oh no, what do we do now?”

And all of a sudden Jimmy Carter will be negotiating nuclear proliferation issues AND THAT’S LIABLE TO END US UP IN A BIG WORLD OF HURT.

Because he doesn’t know what he’s doing.

  1. Perhaps his real motivation for going to N. Korea is not to secure Kenny boy’s release, but rather to encourage the teenage tyrant to allow Habitat for Humanity to start building low cost homes in Pyongyang.

    • so what is the deal Trade a few bags of peanuts ,Smile a lot and MAYBE they will free the hostage ?

      Of course if he is released OBOZO will take FULL CREDIT for doing so !!

      Invite LIL KIM DONG WONG over for a full State Diner praising the whole world his Humanitarianism and recomend him for a NOBEL PEACE PRIZE !

  2. If things get really heavy, we can fly Dennis Rodman out.

    When an agreement looks promising, how about sending Hillary (aka Piaps) to burnish her foreign policy credentials?

  3. Nobody with a working brain cell believed that the three Americans were “hiking” near the Iraqi/Iranian border when they were captured a few years ago.
    Likewise, the holy man did not just “go into” N Korea to spread the word of his religion to starving peasants. Nobody just “goes into” N Korea without being noticed.

    All the reports of his capture in N Korea make it sound like he just booked a flight to Korea, rented a car from Enterpise, and mapped out the countryside, but ran afoul of some local regulations. Didn’t happen, he’s not there to spread the word of whichever mission he worships, and , really, does he even speak Korean?

    As for the elderly MrCarter, sure, why not send him to negotiate with the young tubby. It’s likely that he’s carrying some special gift or gifts for the youngster; the latest edition of GrandTheftAuto, or Wolverine, or even some tasty treats that are hard to get in NK like a sack of KFC or some Baskin/Robbins treats.

    Just a reminder, MrK. — Some of your sharpest readers and commenters are not spring chickens, either. Age slows the body, not the mind.

  4. Agreed that Carter doesn’t know what he’s doing. And that Obama doesn’t know what he or Carter is doing. Perhaps we should send Dennis Rodman over there, just to keep some semblence of order?

  5. If they are going to send a lib; why not Bill Richardson. Oh I forgot he’s being investigated. How about Hillary; oops not liked or respected. Why doesn’t obi go. Same reaction as Hillary. Sounds like a problem.

  6. How would anyone in the Zero regime know the difference if Jimmy gives away the country ? I hope Bozo Does take credit for whatever insanity Carter achieves.

  7. NOBODY is going to make an Amy Carter joke? am I the only one on this board who remembers when Jimmah lost a debate by saying he had “discussed nuke-ya proliferation with mah daughtah Amy…”?

  8. I’ve never understood why people will go into a hostile foreign country with expectations that everything will go all right. Given that he has family and medical conditions that are deteriorating, I have to wonder what did he expect. Perhaps I’m just not a gambler…

  9. I also meant to ask is it really true that the Congressional Black Caucus wants Sheila Jackson Lee nominated to replace Napolitano at DHS?

  10. Actually if Carter can go for the photo-op and tour and secure the guy no problem. He has been there before and isnt as big a threat over there as say, anywhere near Israel..
    Because we all know Obama wont lift a finger..Let him go.

  11. I don’t know what Carter hopes to accomplish. They see him as a pathetic weakling regardless of his personal vitality.
    Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Il; they’ve always seen Carter as weak
    Perceived weakness in the DPRK has the effect of a pheromone.
    All I know is that a few months ago Lil Kim was really raising Hell…then he disappeared for three weeks.
    He appears to have had an attitude adjustment
    I believe the Chinese offered Kim and his aunt a bullet to the back of the head or a lengthy sabbatical in a facility in rural China before yanking a knot in their tails and sending them home with their “heads right”.
    War on the Korean peninsula is bad for Business.

  12. the best we could expect is that NK will keep carter, the worst is that they won’t. A fundamental problem with the “peanut” cruncher from GA is that although he forfeited the position of worst POTIUS since James Buchanan of PA who held the title for almost a 100 yrs to BHO, this trip could conceivably put him back into contention for #1 again. Re-read the book, “Ex-Presidents Club” about the most exclusive club in the world, currently there are only four members. Started by Truman, it never had more than 5 members at one time – it does explain a lot….

  13. Heck, I’m not even sure Carter isn’t up to something on behalf of the White House, given the haphazard way this administration conducts foreign policy.
