KESQ NewsChannel 3 Palm Springs, CA: Ex-Prez Carter: Bush has brought U.S. “international disgrace”

Its the truth and it really does hurt.  Cause I’m an American and I used to be proud of that.

The former president told a crowd of about 300 on the campus of the University of Nevada, Reno today that the nation is more sharply divided that it has ever been as a result of Bush’s policies.The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002, he says he’s deeply embarrassed that the American government now stands convicted around the world as one of the greatest abusers of civil rights. He continued the theme in a dinner speech to 700 at a Democratic fundraiser tonight, saying every past president has been a supporter of human rights, until this one.

Jack Carter is bidding to unseat Republican Senator John Ensign. Both father and son said Ensign must go because he has voted 96 percent of the time with the Bush administration. They say that in addition to bungling foreign policy, Bush has cut taxes for the rich to the detriment of working Americans.

The former president say that Bush’s policies have been a radical departure from what all previous presidents have done, including Republicans like Bush’s own father, Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon and Dwight Eisenhower.

He says never before has the United States had a policy of pre-emptive war, as was the case in what he called an “ill-advised invasion” of Iraq.

Now I don’t know what to think.  I’m more disenfranchised than ever.
