I swear its the Carter years all over again

Imagine, if US President Ronald Reagan went to the Berlin wall and never said, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"

In the Pirkei Avot, Rabbi Hillel is quoted saying, “In a place where there are no men, strive to be a man”. Why this piece of ancient wisdom?

Because now is the hour for the single most powerful man in the world to stand up and support the struggle of millions of ordinary citizens who are attempting to take back their country from the rule of the treacherous Mullah's. I am not suggesting US Marines need to be deployed. Just a simple speech supporting the Iranian people's struggle for freedom and democracy. I am told he is good at that kind of thing, I don't see it, but perhaps, more importantly, others will.

Deeply troubled doesn't cut it. The Iranian people deserve better than the Jimmy Carter redux.
