Subject: NYSun attacks Carter and raptureready posters cheer

Carter Seeks Vote in U.N. Against U.S.
BY BENNY AVNI - Staff Reporter of the Sun
March 3, 2006

President Carter personally called Secretary of State Rice to try to convince her to reverse her U.N. ambassador's position on changes to the U.N. Human Rights Commission, the former president recalled yesterday in a talk in which he also criticized President Bush's Christian bona fides and misstated past American policies on Israel.

Mr. Carter said he made a personal promise to ambassadors from Egypt, Pakistan, and Cuba on the U.N. change issue that was undermined by America's ambassador, John Bolton. "My hope is that when the vote is taken," he told the Council on Foreign Relations, "the other members will outvote the United States."

While other former presidents have tried to refrain from attacking the sitting chief executive, Mr. Carter's attacks on President Bush have increased. The episode he recounted yesterday showed how he tried to undermine officials at lower levels in an effort to influence policy.


Asked yesterday about his views on religion, Mr. Carter said, "The essence of my faith is one of peace." In a clear swipe at Mr. Bush's faith, and to a round of applause, he then added, "We worship the prince of peace, not of pre-emptive war." Mr. Carter then went on to attack American Christians who support Israel.

You will notice that the only previous Presidents that bad mouth our country are former Democrat Presidents. They have a lousy legacy and are still trying to make one that will be acceptable to the American people. I remember well the Carter Presidency, that was 4 extremely loooong years.

1. NY Sun is neocon crap
run by Ira Stoll and Seth Lipsky. Of course, they hate Jimmy Carter and love John Bolton.

2. meanwhile
the sun gives their paper free:

It appears to be a less than sunny day for the right-leaning broadsheet New York Sun.
The paper has embarked on an aggressive policy to ramp up its free distribution in what it calls the elite neighborhoods of the city but many of those copies are apparently unwanted and unread.

The move comes as the paper has abandoned its original strategy of developing a paid-subscriber base, with losses running at a $25 million-a-year clip and circulation stalled at around 45,000 copies when it took a voluntary suspension from the Audit Bureau of Circulations.

That is usually a sign of serious questions being raised.
