Question for President Carter.
When the hostages were in captivity and the election of 1980 approached, did you ever suspect that the Reagan campaign was in contact with Iran about keeping the hostages in captivity until after the election? I ask this because of the Iran-Contra scandal which revealed arms being sent to the very nation that held our embassy people in captivity.

Thank God Carter has set the record straight! All this time I thought he was the worst president in history, but no. He tells us he is the MOST successful. I guess my recollections of hyper inflation, unemployment, interest rates through the roof... were just fantasies cooked up by the vast right wing conspiracy.

At this point, there are two options. First would be to build the Islamic center which would upset many people from NYC; the other option would be to to build it and make Muslims upset. Since none of these options would create peace in NYC you must compromise between all New Yorkers regardless of which religion they are . The compromise then would have to be to build a multi-religion center where anyone from any religion can have peace of mind and pray in. That way its not excluding anyone.

A question for President Carter. You still believe that the Venezuelan government, headed by Hugo Chavez, is a democratic state or rather a state ditactorial.

As a firefighter from Tennessee, I oppose the building of a Mosque in New York City. The Islamic Center is something NY people do not want to see, nor, do most Americans. I am one of them! You cannot have it both ways. Choose Americans, or outsiders. It's time to stop the "fence sitting" It's time to be a real American! God Bless America........We are not free of responsibilities, but, we must start here in our own nation, to our own people, to our own soil, to our own beliefs! PLEASE. Vote in November 2010 Mid-elections, perserve and stand together. If we do not, we are divided, and votes are no good divided.

Question for Carter

Why does the United states need to be involved with the DPRK? I believe China will be able to keep everything relatively peaceful. I reside in china several months out of the year apx 120 miles from Pyongyang and just flew from there to Seoul Korea today. Because of the close proximity between Korea both north and south to China's borders, China will not allow any extreme activity. I have spoke to some people in Seoul this morning and they think American's overreact. A;lso China is NOT happy with our military parked right off their coast. CNN you can trace this IP address and see it is from Seoul, Korea. We have enough on our plate.

Is there any possibility of the US closing any of the 700+ bases in other countries costing the tax payers hundreds of billions of dollars each year?.

We cannot continue to afford these bases. Our military industrial complex is breaking our treasury!


Fran   September 21st, 2010 2:33 am ET

Do you think there is anything we can do to get our Bahai' friends out of jail. 10 years is an unreasonable amount of time for people who have done nothing wrong?


Cajazz76:24:8   September 21st, 2010 3:38 am ET

Inaguration Day January 20, 1977...In a reflective moment I can still visualize the scenes over Washington D.C. and surrounding areas from an altitude of approximately 10,000 feet. The most predominate feature from that altitude was the Chesapeake Bay, completely frozen over for the first time in nearly 200 years, and I was once again headed to Iran.

The feeling that our economy, already in turmoil, would be still in recovery mode when I made my way home, once again, to this ailing country. I felt fairly secure in my hopes that our nation would be free from war, a rather appreciable sentiment I was rather unfamiliar with since the advent of my birth, but right on the heels of a lengthy war in the western Pacific were the costs to pay for it and a necessary slow down or in so many cases a halt to the war industries. Then came the years of huge deficit spending by the Reagan administration to again build the war machine in all its olive drab luster.

War is never a recovery tool to excite the economy, and this is where the ebbs and tidal bumps are the effects to the cause of two ridiculous WARS. You say you want to change your vote to construct a right-wing(Republican) controlled Congress? Your sanctified choice, just remember or read the history following any countries post-war economies....caj

By all means;
Let the Muslims have their Islamic Centre@Ground Zero, BUT BUT BUT, make the Muslims STRUGGLE for it.
There is nothing illegal in invoking a struggle.
GAME RULES APPLY.
And on the day this new Islamic Centre opens, perhaps it's our turn to crash a plane or two into it.
That kind of struggle & that kind of game.
NO PAIN NO GAIN applies all along.


Anthony Hooker   September 21st, 2010 8:21 am ET

As an American I just have to say or we as the United States Of America
people not paying attention to what is right? Well to me what is right is we have a President that is working hard to put us back to work, and this will not come over night and will not happen in a day but it will happen if we all pull to gather as we Americans work hard together our America dream.

If by now we don't know who is for us and who is working so hard against the us trying to make it then I am strongly disappointed in
my fellow American. When thing get tough the tough stand tall.

Question to Alex, what religion do you practice to benefit mankind?


shahab   September 21st, 2010 8:54 am ET

In the ineterest of World Peace it is going to be great if instead of a mosque an All Faith Center is built where all relegions are allowed to worship. Let the inspiration come from Emperor Akbar the Great who ruled India during the Moghul Period. Emperor Akbar built Din-e-Ilahi an all faith center. Hope Wisdom prevails. An eye for an eye will make the world go blind, Gandhi was right in his non-violenece. The world needs another Mahatma.


pam   September 22nd, 2010 3:54 am ET

OH BOOO HOOOO! Stop crying over health care-and who is going to get credit for this rotten bill! As far as Jimmy Carter going down in history as a good President-absolutely NOT! Because of Obama's record to date he will now be known as the second WORST President with Obama clearly taking the LEAD away from him.


TJ   September 27th, 2010 2:42 pm ET

@ David Strong

Please explain what a real american is? Because as I recall the only "real Americans" are called Native American which were in american before the europeans arrived. So if you are not of Native American decent I guess you are also an "outsider"


TJ   September 27th, 2010 3:08 pm ET

@ Pam

Why do say Obama will go down as the worst president.? President Obama did not start two wars, one based on lies and deceit, President Obama did not squander a trillion dollar surplus, President Obama was not in charge when the U.S was attacked on 9/11, President Obama was not the President when the stock market crashed and sent America into a near depression. Presiden Obama was not the President when Katrina hit and no help was sent. I could go on and on.

I understand people feel things are not moving fast enough. Things are not being "fixed" as quickly as we might like, but remember it took Bush and the repubs eight years to bring America down, and its going take time to repair all the damage. And to get an idea just imagine America being a glass. Take said glass and drop it on the concrete, it takes no time to break , then try to pick up all the pieces and put said glass back together, see how long it takes.
