    The Real Jimmy Carter:
    How Our Worst Ex-President Undermines American Foreign Policy, Coddles Dictators, and Created the Party of Clinton and Kerry

    Hardcover – 272 pages

    Jimmy Carter has been given a free ride from the liberal media, liberal historians, and even the American people, who excuse his political delinquencies and disasters on the grounds that he is a “good” man. But as bank robber Willie Sutton said of Carter: “I’ve never seen a bigger confidence man in my life, and I’ve been around some of the best in the business.”

    It’s time to set the record straight. Finally, an honest historian--Steven F. Hayward, author of The Age of Reagan --demolishes the myth of “Saint” Jimmy and exposes how Carter created today’s leftist Democratic party of John Kerry and Hillary Clinton.

    Jimmy Carter’s laundry list of failures aren’t just accidents of history. They’re rooted in Carter’s deeply flawed character and ideology--a smugly pious arrogance matched with a profound distrust of America.

    The Real Jimmy Carter reveals:

    --Carter as meddling ex-president: Why a Time Magazine columnist wrote that some of Carter’s “Lone Ranger work has taken him dangerously close to the neighborhood of what we used to call treason”

    --How Carter befriended North Korea during the Clinton administration, appeasing the communist regime and giving it cover for its nuclear weapons program

    --How Carter made direct contacts with Soviet officials to try to subvert President Reagan’s anti-communist policies

    --The shocking extent of Carter’s clandestine efforts to sabotage the first Gulf War in 1990 and how he used Gulf War II to publicly question the Christian faith of America’s commander in chief

    --How Carter befriended terror-master Yasir Arafat

    --Carter as politician: a vicious campaigner and even race-baiter
    The Carter White House during the disasters of the Sandinista takeover of Nicaragua, the energy crisis and stagflation, the Iranian revolution and hostage crisis, and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan

    --How Carter, the failed president, remade himself as Carter the humanitarian and freelance foreign policy critic of America

    --How a Nobel official inadvertently revealed that Carter’s Nobel Peace Prize was actually meant as a slap at America

    The Real Jimmy Carter is a shocker, showing why the peanut president should never have left his farm.

    “History has been too kind to Jimmy Carter. Steve Hayward explains why the verdict should be far tougher, both because of Carter’s failed presidency and his years as a meddlesome former president. No one has popped the Carter balloon more effectively than Hayward. I ‘m convinced.” -- Fred Barnes, executive editor, The Weekly Standard

    “This very well written biography of Jimmy Carter recalls his distinctive personal and political style and large impact on both the Republican and the Democratic parties and on America’s role in the later stages of the Cold War. It is good reading. I recommend it highly.” -- Jeane Kirkpatrick, Leavey Professor of Government, Georgetown University, and former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations

    “If you thought that Jimmy Carter was harmless, passé, or a simple do-gooder, guess again. This is a book that’s been crying out to be done. The Real Jimmy Carter is an eye-opener.” -- David Limbaugh, nationally syndicated columnist and author of the New York Times bestsellers Absolute Power and Persecution

    A conservative Republican, huh? You're a real hoot! Thanks for the chuckle, and don't forget to wear a sweater and turn the thermostat down.
