Business Insider ^ | Feb. 1, 2013 | Walter Hickey

Posted on 02/02/2013 12:02:55 PM PST by george76

One of former New York City Mayor Ed Koch's last interviews before his death on Friday came in Vanity Fair's Proust Questionnaire.

The most interesting part of the Q&A came when he was asked who was what living person he "most despise[s]."

...

Which living person do you most despise?

Former president Jimmy Carter.

Luckily, Carter didn’t go full retard until he left the White House. If you read about his Presidency, you will find that he really wanted to balance the budget and cut spending. This ticked off many of his fellow Dems.

The person I most despise is Ted Kennedy. Obama is a close second, followed by the likes of Barney Frank, John Kerry, and Chuck Schumer.

You should see some of the verbal abuse given out to those of us who didn't vote for Romney because [we believe] he is a socialist.

Chuck Schumer, first, last and always, followed by Diane Feinstein, Jim Wallis (obscure reference, but if you know who he is you hate him), Mike Malloy, Mark Potok and Morris Dees of the SPLC (tie), Bernie Ward, Janet Reno, Bill Clinton. That's just a starter list. Did I mention Chuck Schumer?

They all share in common a thread of arrogance, complete disregard for reality which includes being willing to lie to advance their agendas, and hatred of America and conservatives (which I consider the same, BTW).

That is about the same way I feel about Jimmy. Not my most despised but definitely in the running. Now Barry, just may be number one.

That is a pretty good list except I don’t know who Jim Wallis is, although it seems I remember a Communist with that name, maybe not.

I would ad Chris “tingle up my leg”, Hillary, and Baba Wawa.

What’d they call Carter? A technocrat, or something? I think he used to attend to the minutiae and details, more than most presidents, who handled the big picture and left details to subordinates.

Sorry, I’m no longer a fan of the Bushes, but I really don’t see how you can put Jeb ahead of Kennedy. And, to top it off, Ted (”The Swimmer”) actually killed someone.

Since Jimmy Carter is perceived by many to be anti-Semitic, maybe the Jewish Ed Koch perceived him the same way.

More precisely, Kennedy left someone to die, whom he could have saved. He dithered, temporized and thought about what was best for him rather than her...for some number of hours.
Jeb did this for some WEEKS.

He endorsed and campaigned for Obama in '08 and '12.

Obama is perceived by many to be anti-Semitic, yet the Jewish Ed Koch campaigned for him in '08 then suddenly turned on him in '10 and endorsed a Republican Congressional challenger to shake him up. He then immediately declared mission accomplished and remained a faithful Obamabot through the '12 election. Then when Obama picked Hagel for SoD he said he knew Obama would turn on Israel eventually but didn't expect him to do so so soon.

Ed Koch was many things (and I did not always agree with his positions), but dishonest or afraid to say what he really thought - no matter who didn’t like it - were not among his weaknesses.
