Jimmy Carter Drops by the White House to Offer Advice

Does Jimmy Carter offering advice to the Obama administration have a “1962 New York Mets mentoring the 2010 Pittsburgh Pirates” feel to it, or is it just me?

The topic was national security, so we can only hope that Carter stopped by to serve as an example of what not to do. But unfortunately, I doubt it:

Former President Jimmy Carter returned to the White House on Tuesday for the first time since President Obama took office.

Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, said Mr. Carter had come to meet with the national security adviser, Thomas E. Donilon, and Mr. Obama asked him to drop by.

I feel safer already. The president who got a smooch from Leonid Brezhnev, was BFFs with Arafat, delivers FTD Pick-Me-Up Bouquets to Hamas and buddies up with Castro is bending White House ears on national security:

(matching shirts… awww)

Carter no doubt left the White House having alerted Donilon to the real threat to freedom and civility in the world: Americans who disagree with Obama.
