Another thing that annoyed me about "Argo" is that prior to the closing credits, there was writing on the screen that brought you up to date on some of the characters. One of the things mentioned was that the following year, on January 20, 1980, the remaining hostages were released by Iran after 444 days in captivity.
What it failed to point out was that it was the very day that Jimmy Carter left the White House and Ronald Reagan took up residence. Anybody who believes that was a mere coincidence no doubt believes that Barack Obama is just the guy to stop Iran from getting its dirty mitts on a nuclear bomb.


It is absolutely not a coincidence. Reagan negotiated with Iran and asked them to delay releasing the hostages until he took office. People think Reagan failed with Iran-Contra by giving them weapons and not getting any hostages released. They don't understand that he was just paying them for the previous bunch.

one of the most unamerican, treasonous acts of any president in history. for that alone, reagan should be relegated to the bottom of the pile along with bush 43 and harding.

how suspenseful can any movie be when you know how everything turns out ahead of time. I would say that "Apollo 13" made a pretty good stab at it. But I never understood why the novel "Day of the Jackal" was so successful or why it led to not one, but two movie versions. Did anyone actually think the Jackal was going to assassinate Charles DeGaulle?

* MASSIVE STROKE *


Well, maybe Democrats did. For one thing, they don't know their history. For another, they'll believe just about anything.

Jeez, this went from old guy waxing nostalgic about dead guys and bemoaning the quality of their replacements to loony teabagger tirade in about a nanosecond.  Sttle down, gramps.

...the movie was all filler, killing time until the final escape mainly by showing the hostages griping about having to remain indoors and their CIA rescuer, portrayed by the film's actual director, Ben Affleck, boozing a lot and looking worried. The middle hour of the movie is so boring, it will put your teeth to sleep.

Frankly, I don't know why anyone sets out to make suspenseful movies based on actual events. I mean, really, how suspenseful can any movie be when you know how everything turns out ahead of time. I would say that "Apollo 13" made a pretty good stab at it. But I never understood why the novel "Day of the Jackal" was so successful or why it led to not one, but two movie versions.

Show me a Republican journalist/talking-head that is not a whiny shill.

"Wah, they didn't mention that the hostages went free on Reagan's inauguration!"

Why should they? What would that have to do with the story of the rescue?

For that matter, what would make you think that Reagan was (officially) responsible for their release when he'd been President for less than 24 hours? Were the student revolutionaries just so scared of a Hollywood actor that they gave him whatever he wanted without any effort on his part?

probably doesn't know it was a dirty deal made by George Bush and Ronald Reagan with the Ayatollah and led directly to the arms for hostages deal later in Reagan's presidency.?

I'm just guessing, here.

I love that John Wayne movie where he played the same character from every other John Wayne movie. What's it called again? I think Robert De Niro did a remake of it.

When he need to extend his range as an actor he just wore a different hat.

"Well, maybe Democrats did. For one thing, they don't know their history. For another, they'll believe just about anything."

Progressives by definition are trying to right the wrongs of the past and prevent that from happening again. I'm pretty sure they know their history.

Oh, and those who want women back in the kitchen, brothers back in slavery, and gays back in the closet are lecturing me on knowing history? No. Just no.

Why is it that so many movie reviewers HATE movies? Can't newspapers find movie reviewers that actually LIKE movies?

I wonder if he hated Band of Brothers for the same reason.

Reagan negotiated to a hostel foreign government to keep american citizens in captivity just so he could claim credit, he then gave them arms. later that same hostel government supported and aided terrorist who killed americans marines in beirut.

He then pulled cut and ran like a pussy sending a message to terrorists for decades to come.

Why is this guy a hero tot he right?

The Ayatollah hated Carter with a passion because he provided sanctuary for the Shah. He also wasn't ignorant of US politics and held unto the hostages until Reagan took office as a huge FU. Reagan proved far more maliable in selling them weapons.

Good lord; I got half way through the headline before I began reading it in a particular way... so when I tried to read TFA it was still in that Valley Girl style. So, I couldn't finish nor pay attention to it.

Clearly, this man has never seen a Ronald Reagan movie, or he would realize that Argo is an all-time cinematic masterpiece by comparison.

John Wayne actively avoided service in WWII, but went on to be a vocal supporter of war, and made his money pretending to be a tough guy.

Of course the GOP worships him. Morons.
 
2012-10-29 04:58:25 PM  
So this guy wants people to know that Regan negotiated with terrorists and made a deal with Iran to keep the hostages imprisoned longer than need be, so he could sell arms to our nation's enemies? Oooookay then.

Because he looked tough. Same reason conservatives idolize John Wayne and Clint Eastwood.

Appearance is all that matters.

How could a presidential CANDIDATE authorize arms sales to a foreign country??
Regean, at the time, had no power to bargain with Iran to hold the prisoners. Only when he won the presidency did he have enough power to authorize the arms sale.

You know who really profits most in a presidential year? Media. The whole faux "we aint a media rount here, didn't you see mah book?' is losing it's charm. WND, Breitbart, American Thinker...a ton of shiat on this site today. Barbeit and WND making main page? It certainly can't be a pay per click thing keeping it confined to politics. No way!
