A Disgrace

According to the Washington Post, not only has the former president of Iran been granted a visa to visit the US, it appears that Jimmy Carter may take time to "talk" with him.

First, it's not clear exactly why Khatami is entitled to the privilege of roaming the United States freely. While he's often designated in the press as a "pragmatic moderate," that's only in comparison to the zealot who succeeded him. What's more, all of us should be profoundly alarmed at the prospect of President Carter having access to him.

Carter is famous for his compulsive appeasement of America's enemies, and his obsession with denigrating President Bush, even in foreign publications (recent examples here and here). Allowing him to speak to former President Khatami is a recipe for disaster, as his anti-Bush, pro-Iran remarks will only convince Khatami that Iran can proceed on its present course with impunity.

Carol, just out of curiousity... Who do you think has the right to allow or not allow a United States citizen to speak with a person granted a visa to enter our country?

Incredible! Carter's not only the worst president in the history of this nation, he's also the world's leading idiot.

r, you got that right. Here is a quote that fits Carter:

"It is impossible to defeat an ignorant man in argument."

William G. McAdoo (1863 - 1941)

It applies to whoever granted the visa, as well. And whoever thinks the grant was a good idea. And the horse they ride around on.

I've got no problem with this dude coming here. I've got a problem with not having a conservative to constantly badger him with real questions. I've got a problem with Carter given air time on any network including Comedy Central. He's an idiot.
