Welcome Back, Carter

Re Iran, Obama is channeling his inner Jimmy Carter. The results, writes Myron Magnet (how great is that name?), are bound to be calamitous:
So now President Obama wants to make an agreement that will ensure that Iran can produce an atom bomb essentially overnight. He has not seen fit to explain his reasoning to the American people, and it is hard to imagine what it might be. But all I can think of is Churchill’s rebuke to Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain when he returned from his infamous appeasement of Hitler in Munch in 1938. “You were given the choice between war and dishonor,” Churchill thundered in Parliament. “You chose dishonor, and you will have war.” Certainly President Obama is choosing dishonor. What kind of war he might unleash, the world watches with dread.
Actually, for all his wimpishness, Carter ended up threating Iran with dire consequences should any harm come to those American hostages. One cannot imagine Obama doing something like that.

As for his political choices, Obama always chooses dishonor, as do most "progressives" of his ilk who are convinced they're on the side of angels but who are actually doing some heavy lifting for a more fiery supernatural entity.
