In a rare appearance former Georgia Governor and Senator Zell Miller bashed the Obama administration for overspending and being weak on terror.

Miller told a group of conservative legislators that President Obama’s decision to close the Guantanamo Bay Prison was “nuts.”

He spoke at The American Legislative Exchange Council’s annual meeting in Atlanta on Thursday. The 2,000 mostly Republican state lawmakers applauded as Miller criticized the administration on all fronts.

"Today we’re spending like we’re Paris Hilton, regulating like we’re Ralph Nader, nationalizing like we’re Hugo Chavez, printing money like we’re the Weimar Republic," Miller said.

The former U.S. Senator was also critical of Obama's recent overseas trips saying he should quit gallivanting all around the globe and fix problems in the U.S.

Tomorrow former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich will address the ALEC gathering.
