    G.H.W. Bush does plenty of humanitarian things, so does his wife. Just not ones it seems involving bringing back people imprisoned in other countries.

    G.W Bush also does humanitarian things, but they are often muted, as he is following the tradition of a former president not trying to overshadow the newly elected one, especially during thier first term.

    Carter sent the guy over the border in the first place. It was a set up.

    That about sums it up.

    I wonder what Carter gave away to secure his release.

    Carter plans to build a few houses while he's in N. Korea. Habitat for Inhumanity.

    If I had to listen to Jimmy Carter whine for more than 5 minutes I too would give him whatever he wanted.

    You would side with the North Koreans just to make President Carter and other Democrats look bad?

    What does this tell us about your real motives here? That laying down with dogs (the North Koreans) doesn't really result in getting up with fleas is those fleas help scratch a partisan itch?
