Jimmy Carter is also the President who when he was informed that the 6 grandchildren of the exiled Crown Prince of Ethiopia, and 4 grandchildren of the imprisoned Princess Tenagnework had escaped from Ethiopia to Kenya with the help of an American expatriate family, and were now asking for asylum in the U.S., instructed embassy officials in Nairobi "not to touch them with a ten foot pole".  The fact that these children were the great-grandchildren of the United State's firmest ally in Africa for much of the twentieth century just didn't matter to Mr. Carter.

Peanut Boy also promised during his campaign that the Crown of St Stephen would never be returned to Hungary as long as the reds were in power. As you probably know, the possessor of the Crown is considered the 'legitimate' ruler of Hungary. Almost one of his first acts as president was to announce that the Crown was being returned. Senator Dole tried to sue him to stop the transferral, but the Courts refused to hear the case since it was under the executive prerogative.

He not only returned it, but he had his wife go along and make a formal presentation to the red dictators of Hungary.

And don't forget his unconstitutional alienation of the Canal Zone.

Two very ill fated marriages.  Prince Charles and Princess Diana were both decended from Mary Queen of Scots and Lord Darnley.  Perhaps they should have picked a different day to wed...

KYM,
He's dead.  His heirs were all Christians.  (No 'battle field conversions either....).  Get over it.
