Magically the hostages were released on the day of President Ronald Reagan's inauguration, as America recoiled from the dark, helpless years under Jimmy Carter.
Iran remains a threat, building nukes, sponsoring terror and directly threatening our troops in its bid to destabilize Iraq and become the dominant power in the Middle East.
In the face of these threats, (recall Saddam stockpiled chemicals, which are now being used by Al Qaeda in Iraq) the Democrats try to rewrite history and escape responsibility in the mode of Carter and Clinton, even as they control the levers of power in Congress. Sen.Dick Durbin of Illinois leads the Dems in a disgraceful litany of lies.

UPDATE: Giuliani in Chicago. Tribune:
"In the history of war, I have never heard of a situation in which one nation is required to not only retreat, but give a schedule of its retreat to the enemy," Giuliani said. "I mean, when has an army that has to retreat ever had to give a printed-out list of how it's going to retreat to its enemy? That's not the most prudent thing to do."
Giuliani, whose stewardship of New York City in the aftermath of 9/11 has given him a political platform to discuss terrorism, said he agreed with former CIA Director George Tenet that "we have to presume there's an Al Qaeda presence in the United States."
