Jimmy Carter from bad to worse.
Jimmy Carter, an ex-President of the U.S., was not a very good President. He holds a novel distinction among bad ex=Presidnets Presidents: He has been worse as an ex-President.
In 1984, ex-Pres Carter was a keynote speaker at the Young Presidents Association plenary meeting in Melbourne, Australia. There were two others, and a fourth, me.
The over-whelming majority of the YPO members were Americans.
In his remarks ex-President Carter ("former-President" is the title used for Presidents who were not beaten) said: "The Soviet Union has has never lied to us."
There was a stunned silence.
Then patriotic Americans boo-ed their ex-President on foreign soil.
I never thought I'd see it or hear it.
