NBC News, by Becky Bratu and Michael O´Brien

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 9/27/2013 5:37:27 PM

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani had finished his last meetings in New York Friday and was in a car headed to the airport when President Barack Obama called. (Snip) The Iranian press office added: "The Iranian and U.S. presidents underlined the need for a political will for expediting resolution of West´s standoff with Iran over the latter´s nuclear program. President Rouhani and President Obama stressed the necessity for mutual cooperation on different regional issues." For his part, Rouhani took to Twitter to reveal what the two leaders discussed.

Tweets are included with article. Sorry but I am underwhelmed.

Barry desperately trying to get this mook on the phone before he left U.S. soil is reminiscent of the time Madeline Albright went running after that other terrorist, Yassir Arafat, as he left the negotiating table so she could say they agreed on something.

My country has become an international laughing stock.....thanks again 0bama.

So, Barack Hussein Obama will call the Iranian leader but not the Republican Speaker of the House. Got it.

The Secret Service detail escorting Rouhani to JFK surely had instructions to call Obama with the Iranian´s cell phone # (part of security) so that Obama could place a hurried phone call to the limo. Fact that Obama had to call Rouhani is bad enough, but he had to call the Iranian when Rouhani couldn´t say he was "in a meeting" or "having dinner with real world leaders" is a total embarrassment for the US. Obama will allow Iran to develop, test and deploy nuclear bombs.

rouhani senses blood in the water and weakness.......and decides to toy with O. it has to be a game - international sport - for him, for he knows that they have been successful getting delays to buy them time to complete their program without any effort whatsoever.

I suppose that after communicating with Obama, the Iranian leader had some more stuff painted on the side of his missiles. Death to America and Death to Israel were already there so he had ´USA leader is Incoherent Wimp´ added.

I want to object to the first two listed, but agree with the third one. I bet the translator didn´t understand a word the Tele-prompter said.

I´d like to hear the actual recording of that "conversation". I´m assuming Rouhani speaks Farsi and Obama English. Do either speak the other´s language literally or figuratively?

Obama chases this weirdo around the U.N. desperate for a handshake and when he doesn´t get one is desperate for a phone call. POTUS is like some love sick adolescent. We are now the pitiful helpless giant Nixon warned we would be. Say what you want about Nixon but we were respected internationally under him. And under Reagan and, yes, under both Bushes. Sometimes hated but respected. We are more of a laughing stock now than we were under Carter and that´s saying something. Clinton --- CLINTON --- engendered more respect than does Obama. Teddy Roosevelt is rolling in his grave.

Oh brother.

1. Obama calls Rouhani, not the other way around.

2. Nothing of substance gets said or done.

3. Obama´s 3-time Rouhani snub must have seriously hurt (a) Obama´s ego or (b) his standing in America and across the word, or (c) his already damaged credibility.

I see a light at the end of this dark, dark tunnel and am beginning to hope that the commentators who claim Obama´s reign of terror is coming to an end maybe actually be right.

You don´t let snubs like that go if you are an egomaniacal head of State who wants absolute power over your people and their land and their freedom. Obama couldn´t afford to let the snub stand for his ego´s sake and for his socialist aspirations´ sake.

It´s ironic that obama´s greatest concern is his legacy. He trashed that in his first year.

"In a phone conversation b/w #Iranian & #US Presidents just now: @HassanRouhani: "Have a Nice Day!" @BarackObama: "Thank you. Khodahafez."

Khoda hafez / Khuda Hafiz is a common parting phrase in the Persian language used in Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Tajikistan and to a lesser extent, Iraq, Kurdistan, and the Indian subcontinent. Literally translated it is: "May God be your Guardian"

Now, my question is which God might that be? The Christian/Hebrew God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob or Allah, the god worshiped in Iran???? PS, they are NOT the same.

DETROIT — Four men accused of punching and kicking a motorist who accidentally struck a 10-year-old Detroit boy were ordered Monday to stand trial on attempted murder charges, after a judge reviewed their statements to police and witnesses testified about the chaotic mob attack. As Steve Utash continued to recover in a hospital bed, Judge Thomas Jackson found probable cause to move the case to trial in Wayne County Circuit Court. Prosecutor Lisa Lindsey introduced statements to police from Latrez Cummings, 19, James Davis, 24, and Wonzey Saffold, 30, all acknowledging a role in the April 2 attack. They were

OK, can we please stop pretending biofuel made from corn is helping the planet and the environment? With huge subsidies for ethanol in gasoline, with all States now selling gasoline having some ethanol blend, and a general misconception that these biofuels are green, corn ethanol has taken on a $30 billion/yr life of its own. The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released two of its Working Group reports at the end of last month (WGI and WGIII), and their short discussion of biofuels has ignited a fierce debate as to whether they’re of any environmental benefit at all.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

Today is Earth Day. Fox News’ The Five opened its show with a nearly 15 minute segment titled “Earth Day Hysteria.” The goal appeared to be to prove that scientists’ warnings about climate change are overblown and should be ignored if not outright mocked and co-host Eric Bolling was the ringleader of the effort. But he found an adversary in Bob Beckel, who challenged the status quo by presenting actual data on the rise of CO2 levels from NASA, of all places. But before Beckel got to his chart, Bolling took some time to “praise” President Barack Obama for what
