Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton will all be on hand tomorrow for the dedication of the new “Billy Graham Library”:http://www.billygraham.org/BGLibrary_Index.asp in Charlotte, N.C.
We’ve all heard that Bush and Clinton have become buddies. But you have to wonder if there will be some tension between Carter and Bush, given what Carter said recently about the current President Bush.
Speaking to Frank Lockwood, the Bible Belt Blogger for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Carter said that the current Bush administration is the worst in American history. He also slammed George W. for hacking at the wall between church and state.
Carter later hedged, but you can listen to the “interview”:http://www.biblebeltblogger.com/ yourself.
By the way, I came across Bill Maher’s show on HBO the other night (I had to stop and see what Ben Affleck could possible have to say), when Maher started talking about Carter’s comments. What surprised him about the whole thing?
“Arkansas has newspapers?” he said.
Cheap shot, Bill.
I’m guessing Maher doesn’t read Bible Belt Blogger, unless he’s looking for ammunition for one of his anti-religion zingers.
