Obama to Iran: “Hurry Up!”, But Still Waffling On Afghanistan Troop Decision

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!

    I understand why Iran is pretending to negotiate. They are getting time to realize their nuclear ambitions.

    What do we get by pretending to negotiate? Anybody? Conservatives? Moderates? Liberals? Leftists? Reactionaries? Anarchists? Can anybody tell me why the U.S. is going along with the Charade?

      Doug, the reason is simple: We no longer have leadership with the cajones to stand up against those who spit in our face.

      At least a year ago, as Obama recited his mantra to the public that he would meet Ahmadinejad “Without Pre-Conditions,” I said to everyone I know, “There’s an announcement to the world: I’m inexperienced, and I’m vulnerable. Please… come take advantage of me.”

      Ahmadinejad is merely accepting Obama’s standing (or should I say BOWING) invitation to humiliate him… and endanger the entire middle east in the process.

        I agree with all that, but what does he hope to gain? when the French tell you to act like you own a pair…. just sayin’

    Totally OT, but how long do we have to wait before he decides to pardon the annual presidential turkey? Or is it going to be arugula or a tofurkey this year?
