After taking over the Oval Office in 1977 during bad and worsening times, former President Jimmy Carter succeeded in making everything far worse and lost his 1980 re-election bid in a landslide to Ronald Reagan. Lately he's been reviving his political career by befriending every leftist, murderous, tyrannical dictator in the world and validating their sham elections while never missing an opportunity while traveling to all of the countries of our sworn enemies to denounce every domestic and foreign U.S. policy in existence.
Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe, one of the worst national leaders in world history, has led an ethnic cleansing of Zimbabwe's economic infrastructure over the past 15 years that has resulted in annual inflation rates exceeding 10,000%, mass starvation, cholera outbreaks, record joblessness, and record crime rates. One would think that the recent history of these two men would create an instant child-like bond. But no, Mugabe doesn't trust Carter and has refused him and communist Kofi Annan access to Zimbabwe while on a mission to "address the humanitarian crisis", which is a cleverly written expression by the group's public relations team that hides its more likely intentions: to shore up Mugabe's political base and re-organize the effort to both literally and physically stamp out all political opponents, women's rights groups, and free market proponents.
