Carter blasts Bush, Bush fires back, Carter rescinds, sort of

Former President Jimmy Carter blasted the Bush administration over the current president's foreign policy (or lack thereof).

I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history.
Then the administration fired back, calling Carter "irrelevant."

Carter has now rescinded his statements, sort of. Here's an excerpt:

Carter said he was answering a question about the foreign policy of former President Richard Nixon, as compared with that of the current administration. He said he wasn't comparing the Bush administration with all those through American history. But in comparison to Nixon's, the Bush administration's foreign policy "was much worse," Carter said.

Carter says comments were ‘careless’ - Politics -
