White House calls Carter ‘increasingly irrelevant.’

“In a biting rebuke, the White House on Sunday dismissed former President Jimmy Carter as ‘increasingly irrelevant’ after his harsh criticism of President Bush. Carter was quoted Saturday as saying ‘I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history.’ … ‘I think it’s sad that President Carter’s reckless personal criticism is out there,’ White House spokesman Tony Fratto responded Sunday from Crawford, where Bush spent the weekend.”
