"Welcome back, Carter"

I saw the above phrase on a tea party sign and thought it clever. And here's a prime example.

Below is an article by Porter Gross, our intelligence chief during the days right after 9/11. He has some interesting comments about the amnesia of some members of congress as well as the problem of airing our laundry in public view.

As I read it I couldn’t help but think of Jimmy Carter’s early days. Human rights trumped all else in his naïve world of trust. It seems we didn’t learn much in 1977. We are back at it again with Obama and the Democrat majority.

But it is such a dangerous game. I fear we will see greater turmoil than hostages held for 444 days as a result of our naïveté.
