President Obama took his “Do as I say, not as I do” routine to dizzying international heights today, demanding that Iran cease its “foot-dragging” over whether or not to comply with demands to halt development of its nuclear program.
Obama’s warning came after Iran rejected a compromise proposal to ship its low-enriched uranium abroad so that it could not be further enriched to make weapons. Talk of fresh sanctions also showed that Obama is preparing for the next phase should Iran fail to meet his year-end deadline for progress in negotiations.
He made the demand while continuing to drag his own feet on whether or not to provide more troops in Afghanistan, something he’s been mulling over since last summer. Expect B-list “actress” Janeane Garofalo to be a featured guest on Bill Maher’s show soon to remind us, once again that if the world criticizes Mahmood Ahmadinejad for taking his time, it’s righteous indignation. If one criticizes “the chosen one” for dragging his feet, however, it’s simply a case of racism.
Meanwhile, American soldiers in Afghanistan are waking up each morning with the knowledge that their government is solidly behind them… oh, who are we kidding?
Mr. President… Crap or get off the pot!
