Rahm says Obama turned tables on Iran
United Press International, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/21/2012 4:50:03 PM

Washington - A former top aide to President Obama said Sunday the United States now held the upper hand in relations with Iran. Chicago Mayor and former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel said world opinion has changed since Obama took office and isolated Iran on the issue of its controversial nuclear program. "Three and a half years ago, the world was criticizing us on Iran," Emmanuel said on ABC's "This Week." "Today, the world is criticizing Iran on its attempt to acquire nuclear weapons. That's a direct change." Emanuel declined direct comment on a New York Times report the

Comments:
That's right Rahm, the tables have turned and Iran has us right where they want us - we are refusing to help Israel and have all but taken the threat of a strategic strike on their nuke facilities off the table. Idiot.

It may be that Rahm is correct that Obama has turned world opinion against Iran, but you know what? Those running the Iranian government don't care. If they can get a nuclear bomb they will use it. That was the situation before Obama took office and it is the situation now. The difference being that Iran is much closer to having a nuclear bomb today than it was when he took office.

IMO Jarrett has given the Mullahs an ultimatum. Sign now or we support an Israeli strike after the election. If we lose then Romney is going to do it anyway. We will see the 'October Surprise' emerge. These people will stop at nothing.

Iran and "I'ma dinner jacket" have every reason to lie to BO and the world. Appease BO with lies and faux compliance, help get BO re-elected because Iran knows that as C-I-C, he will nothing. BO will defer to the UN, ask for sanctions, go on another apology tour and leave Israel under the bus.

As a second-term pres., he has absolutely NO incentive to confront, admonish or threaten Iran. BO's attitude is "Wow...I be gettin four mo years of free stuff without worryin who does what to what to other countrys...as long as I get my free vacays, fancy restaurants, hangin with the celebs and eternal salary."

Oh, by the way Rahm...how is that crime rate in Chicago going?

The mayor of the murder capitol of the world is now giving out advice on controlling violent people. If Obamination thinks that anyone believes he will do anything to solve the Iranian problem, well guess again. The only thing Obama is good at is spending money we don't have. Someone get the straight jacket ready.

Obama is totally desperate.
Iran is within 6 months of having a nuclear weapon, but Obama's priority is a date in November.
Dick Morris says the Obama October surprise will probably be about Iran.

The latest spurious reports coming out of North Korea see men required to adopt that ahead-of-the-trend high-top fade haircut supreme leader Kim Jong Un has been rocking in recent years.State-sanctioned guidelines were imposed on the capital Pyongyang two weeks ago, the BBC reports, with the shaved sides look now being rolled out across the country. The haircut, incidentally already having been adopted by 85% of east London´s men, is a fierce reduction from the original 10 styles that were previously allowed in North Korea.

Bin Laden son-in-law

Osama bin Laden´s son-in-law, the voice of fiery al-Qaida propaganda videotapes after the Sept. 11 attacks, was convicted Wednesday of conspiring to kill Americans for his role as the terror group´s spokesman. The verdict came after about five hours of deliberation in the case against Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, the highest-ranking al-Qaeda figure to face trial on U.S. soil since the attacks. The Kuwaiti imam had testified during a three-week trial that he answered bin Laden´s request in the hours after the attacks to speak on the widely circulated videos used to recruit new followers willing to go on suicide missions like

BRUSSELS - President Barack Obama says he´s concerned that some NATO allies are reducing their spending on defense. Obama says for collective defense to work, everybody has to pitch in. He says that´s necessary to ensure that NATO remains a credible force in the world. Obama says NATO can´t just be a U.S. or British exercise. Obama spoke at a news conference with European Union leaders in Brussels amid concern about Russia´s annexation of the Ukrainian region of Crimea.

Why are salamanders in

Bigger is often better, at least when it comes to being an animal. That´s why new evidence regarding salamanders in the Eastern United States is so alarming.(snip)"Body size is a really, really important factor for most animals," explained Lips. "When you shrink that affects what can eat you, what you can eat, how successful you´re going to be at reproducing. Bigger is generally better." Lips collaborated with other scientists to get a better understanding on why exactly salamanders were shrinking. The most likely culprit: global warming. As temperatures heat up, so do the animals´ metabolisms. Lips and her colleagues determined that

The world´s most powerful democracy and the world´s most absolute monarchy have long been close, if unlikely, allies.

That is why on Friday President Barack Obama will meet with Saudi King Abdullah, one of the sons of King Abdul Aziz, in an attempt to patch things up. What went wrong? In recent months the normally hyper-discreet Saudis have gone on the record about their dissatisfactions with the Obama administration.

At a large factory in Nairobi, Kenya, about 300 Kenyans will soon begin building small, black cookstoves that one islander hopes will alter the face of Africa.(snip)Burn’s new factory was made possible in part by $1 million in financing from General Electric and a $3 million loan from the Overseas Private Investment Corp. (OPIC), a federal development finance institution. Hillary Clinton secured the funding during her time at the State Department, when she made clean cookstoves a national priority and launched the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, vowing to invest $50 million in clean-burning stoves.

It’s not an early April Fool’s joke -- Business Insider has hired disgraced former NYC Congressman and mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner to write a weekly political column, starting Friday. Hunter Walker, Business Insider’s politics editor, published the announcement on Monday, after teasing the news on Twitter by announcing that “something wonderful is about to happen.” The folks at Business Insider are clearly aware of the built-in entertainment value of hiring the scandalized politician, who is best known for sending an explicit photo of himself to an online mistress on Twitter -- and initially denying the photo was his.

Early NASA diapers forced astronauts to

When NASA astronauts were suiting up to go to space in the 1960s, they had to make a big decision before they explored the world above us: How large of a man are you? Getting it wrong could damage the mission. According to a former NASA life support system expert who helped construct space diapers, otherwise known as Maximum Absorbency Garment systems, each astronaut in the Gemini and Apollo programs had to wear a condom-type sheath with a hole at the end for urination inside their suits. In an interview on the Science Channel´s Moon Machines documentary series about early space travel, engineer

A new species of praying mantis, Liturgusa algorei, indigenous to the thick rain forests of Peru has been named after former vice president Al Gore; one of 19 new species of the insect recently identified by entomologist Gavin Svenson. The discoveries came after Svenson, curator of invertebrate zoology at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, decided to search through both old collections at museums and embark on field expeditions into the forests of Central and South America. Unlike the patient, zen-like praying mantis we´re all familiar with, these equatorial cousins take a decidedly different approach to both hunting and self-preservation. "This group,

President Obama, like most Kenyan politicians, loves beating about the bush and avoiding the real issue. In Kenya, we all know the big problem is corruption, but we are addressing virtually everything else but corruption. And so in America, our cousin President Obama dances around serious issues like the typical Kenyan he is. When Russia invaded Georgia in 2008, Obama thundered with indignation and a fulsome, righteous — and justified — anger. The people of Georgia thought he would follow through on his fiery words with real action to set their country free of Russia’s torment, but wapi! With Cousin Barry, as with

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much
