Springer Hoskins managing editor Paul Eaton supt. Of production an Independent Community newspaper Page six monday March 24,1980 slapstick White House show comedy of errors by Robert Walters Washington Nea a if president Carter were in the business of producing slapstick comedies the advertisements for his recently released motion picture might read like this a a watch the Zany Madcap White House work for months to fashion a detailed budget for the next fiscal year then disavow the entire document less than five weeks a a hear the president the Secretary of state Quot and the ambassador to the United nations All clamor for attention so they can proclaim to everyone How they bungled the vote on israeli a a see the administration humiliated by pakistanis rejection of a $400 million aide package to prop up that country a military already widely publicized Are the blunders on the sensitive Middle East vote at the United nations and the administrations contribution to tripling the rate of inflation during Carters three years in office. But recent months have produced so Many other fiascos that Carter stands accused of giving ineptitude a bad name. Some examples in mid december about six weeks after employees at the . Embassy in Tehran were taken hostage the White House rumbled with vague but ominous warnings about a possible naval blockade of Iran a but nothing Ever came of those threats. What did occur slightly More than a month later was a total policy reversal in the form of a Friendly administration offer of military and economic assistance to Iran if the hostages were released unharmed. There also was Carters dramatic order to the Justice department to Deport any iranian students found to be in this country illegally a a move that has led to the removal of fewer than 1,500 of the More than 56,000 iranians studying Here. A White House ultimatum in mid december gave the iranian government five Days to reduce the number of its diplomatic personnel in this country from More than 200 to 35, including 15 at the Washington embassy and five apiece at consulates in new York san Francisco Chicago and Houston. More than two weeks later the iranians still were ignoring the order. The state department now ways it has secured compliance a but admits it cannot account for More than 150 diplomats whose whereabouts remain a mystery. Then there a Carters threat to the soviet Union to remove All of its troops from Afghanistan or face a Boycott of the olympic games to be held in Moscow this summer. When the president demanded the military withdrawal the soviets were just moving into Afghanistan a but by the time his feb. 20 deadline arrived the soviet forces numbered at least 75,000. Administration officials now expect the troop level to reach 120,000 by summer 140,000 by autumn and possibly Peak at about 200,000. Meanwhile Carter is busily diverting attention from that foreign policy calamity by pressuring reluctant nations to participate in a hastily organized but expensive substitute Amateur athletic Competition. On the Domestic front the president blithely ignored repeated warnings from economists that he was unnecessarily stimulating an already overheated Economy through excessive spending on marginal government programs. On Jan. 28, he unveiled a proposed Federal budget for the next fiscal year that called for More deficit spending. But on feb. 29, Carters budget director summarily instructed the Heads of All departments and agencies to revise and Cut their spending estimates. With a sense of timing typical of the uncoordinated Carter White House that order was issued late on a Friday afternoon but required a response by the following monday. Rather than providing leadership to the nation Carter continues to stumble along a Day late and Dollar Short.
