Barack Obama has a lot more in common with Jimmy Carter than the press is willing to cover. Americans are once again being held hostage in Iran. Today is Day 237. Where’s Koppel? Where’s Nightline? Where’s all the rest of the press? Oh, that’s right: if they’re not already working in the Obama White House, they’ve probably submitted their resumes.
On Friday, July 31, 2009 three hikers strayed across the border into Iran and were taken captive by they Iranian military. Shane Bauer, Joshua Fattal, and Sarah Shourd have been in captivity for almost eight months now — 237 days. They have been largely forgotten by most of America thanks to the MSM and the feckless Obama administration.
I have a suggestion for all Republican leaders and Tea Party organizers: Start wearing armbands or carrying signs that say, “Americans Held Hostage — Day xxx“. We need to bring this issue to the forefront of the MSM’s press coverage. This will do one of two things: 1) pressure President Obama to take action; or 2) show the American People that this President is just a Jimmy Carter retread!
