There's a certain elegant symmetry to having possibly the worst president of the 20th century speak at a convention for a person who is well on his way to being the worst president of the 21st century...

Actually, Carter's actions, demands he made on the Shah, and lack of support, not to mention gutting the CIA (in a move still referred to as the Halloween Massacre by CIA employees), were all directly responsible for the takeover of Iran by Islamic fundamentalist. Pretty much anybody who has been paying attention since could fill in what has happened since in the middle east.

i was in college at the time, and I knew several Persian students. A few really hated the Shah but even those realized that they were going to a US school because of his policies etc. The majority were terrified of the revolutionaries and knew what was on the horizon if Carter kept pandering to them. Nothing quite like having one of those students say "Your President is a fool"

Doesn't seem like everyone dislikes Gov. Scott as much as you do. From John Farnam's "Quips, quotes and lessons learned" on 2-5-12:

FL Gov Rick Scott, modern-day hero!

The Republican National Convention is scheduled for the end of August in Tampa Bay, FL.

As with all such political events, rallies, protests, "marches," et al will be seen in great profusion. Of course, the City and surrounding areas are making elaborate preparations.

Tampa's mayor, like all self-respecting autocrats, has proposed "banning guns" from the downtown area during active days of the Convention. How such a "ban" could ever be enforced was never explained. Of course, the instant the Convention is over, this same mayor will argue that the ban be made "permanent." They always do!

In any event, FL's Governor, Rick Scott immediately dismissed the entire idea, chiding the mayor with,

"... conventions and guns have co-existed since the nation's birth. It is unclear how disarming law-abiding citizens would better protect them from dangers and threats posed by those who would flout the law."

What a breath of fresh air!

Ever hostile to individual freedom in any form, leftist politicians love disarming (and thus punishing) good and decent people, who don't vote for them, with sweeping "bans." Worked great in New Orleans, eh?

"Victimism" keeps such politicians in power! There is, naturally, never any provision to disarm violent criminals, who pay no attention to such bans, but whose votes and political support are easily purchased.

Gov Scott deserves great credit for standing up for good people, for our individual rights and freedom.

Few politicians do!

I gather you're a supporter of your local mayor.

I was working and going to college at the same time. We had four Iranians at my college and they were left in the same limbo when the Shah fell, and then worse after the hostages were taken (and still kept going to college, with no repercussions or problems), to show one difference between us and Islamic fundamentalist.

I had a good friend who was one of the Marine Embassy guards in Iran, and actually was replaced about a month before the takeover of the embassy. He knew almost all of the Marines who were taken as hostages and had a very interesting take on how we lost Iran.

I remember those days leading up to the departure of the Shah and the ascension of Khomeini. All of the MSM dutifully and redundantly referred to the Khomeini in every news report, with hushed tones, as an "Islamic holy man."

I also remember thinking, "Geez -- you don't have to do any more than look into that guy's eyes to the see the hate-filled fanaticism." That was way before I was even thinking about Islamic fanaticism in general.

Ah the good ole' days. I was working too and one of the officers I worked with was a naturalized Afghan. We talked about it a lot and I even went to a couple of Afghan association meetings with him. (He was embarrassed that he came from a Country that was so backward they didn't have topless bars and beer:supergrin:). I asked him once if he ever considered going back and helping his Country out in the fight against the Russians. he told me,

"As an Afghan by birth I am offended by the invasion, but how would you feel if Canada invaded the US and the strongest group fighting back were the homebrewed Neo-Nazis? makes it kinda hard to choose sides. "

Here is what Teddy Roosevelt, a Republican, said about losers and critics:

It is not the critic who counts,
or how the strongman stumbled and fell,
or where the doer of deeds
could have done better.

The credit belongs to the man
who is actually in the arena,
who knows the great enthusiasms,
the great devotion,
and who spends himself
in a worthy cause.

If he fails,
at least he fails while daring greatly,
so that he may never be
one of those cold and timid souls,
who know neither victory nor defeat.

- Theodore Roosevelt

Figure out which person you are in that.

What's funny is that he automatically hears the name "Bush," froths at the mouth, and has a knee-jerk reaction.

Jeb won the Florida governorship twice by a landslide, and was by all accounts an effective governor -- especially in the area of education reform. He evidently took a state that was characteristically underperforming in that regard, and improved it by such conservative principles as pushing merit pay for teachers and choices in schools, while at the same time holding the state's education budget accountable.

Of course, I don't need to be reminded by him because we have, and have had, stellar examples in more recent history. The present gang, O and Biden and Reed and Pelosi and Wasserman-Schultz and Rezco (so sad he had to go to jail) Blagojevich (so sad he had to go to jail) and Emanual and the Wall Street/Acamedicians running the treasury/fed (the royalty of corruption) and Holder (to bad he hasn't gone to jail), let's not forget Bubba waddling around in the oval office with his pants around his ankles with a young intern and his associates from the Rose law firm and Jim/Susan McDougal (so sad they had to go to jail), and maybe Weiner and his...well you know.

He did essentially call the Dear Leader a war criminal a couple months for violating 10 out of 30 clauses of the Universal Declaration of Rights via drone strikes. I imagine he's going to be on videocast so the audience won't see the gun pointed at his head (like with Cory Booker).
