Arkansas Democrat-Gazette religion editor Frank Lockwood interviewed former President Carter on Friday.

Carter called the Bush administration "the worst in history" when it comes to foreign affairs and accused the president of abandoning "America's basic values."

The ex-president also accused Bush of erasing the line between church and state and sharply criticized Bush's war policies, his arms-control stances and his environmental record during the interview. Carter spoke during a telephone interview from the Carter Center in Atlanta.

The former President was promoting his new audio tape series "Sunday Mornings in Plains", which the Carter said was recorded near the beginning of the Iraq war. After Carter criticized the conflict, he was asked whether Richard Nixon or George W. Bush had been worse as president.

The question and response are included in this clip.
