Patriot Retort: In light of everything that is happening in Iran, I thought it might be timely to hop in the Way Back Machine to when Obama was finalizing the Iran Deal.
It made me wonder what life would be like if this appeaser had been President back in 1979.
So here is my column from March 21, 2015 asking that very question.
If Barack Obama Had Been President in 1979 – March 21, 2015
If Barack Obama had been President of the United States in 1979, what side of the Iranian Revolution do you think he would have been on?
Let’s be honest. Carter was bad enough.
Carter abandoned US ally the Shah of Iran which ushered in the rise of the mullahs.
It goes without saying that, like Jimmy Carter, Obama would have thrown the Shah of Iran under the bus.
After all, Obama has a track record of abandoning our allies.
But I think Obama would have been far worse than Carter.
Jimmy Carter was just an inept peacenik in so far over his head. And despite wanting to do what was in the best interests of the United States, Jimmy didn’t have a clue how to do that.
Unlike Carter, Obama isn’t burdened with a desire to do what is in the best interest of the United States.
It wasn’t that Carter wanted Ayatollah Khomeini’s Islamic revolution to send Iran tumbling back into the stone age. And he certainly didn’t want Americans taken hostage.
Instead, Carter just didn’t have the capacity to think through his choices and foresee the damage he was causing.
In a word, Jimmy Carter was incompetent.
But Obama? I don’t believe that Obama is an incompetent, starry-eyed peacenik. Not at all. read more
