Obama’s speech selling the Iran Deal

Most of you probably didn’t hear the speech…you won’t listen to Obama, you can’t look at Obama, you’re at work, you were busy, etc. etc.

I have it on in the other room right now…..again, he’s witheringly insulting to anybody not agreeing with him……..I’m typing as I hear him and wish I could have got more in here but…..here’s an overview of the last 20 minutes, anyway:

He says the “Iranian hard liners are making common cause with the Republican caucus” to a huge applause and laughter from the audience at American University.

“Reagan and Kennedy’s deals with Russia involved significant restraints on our arsenal”….
“Our military remains the ultimate backstop to any deal we make”

The arguments against this deal are “knee jerk partisanship…”

“I have been a stalwart friend of Israel throughout my career..”  “No one can blame Israelis for having deep skepticism about Iranians who deny the holocaust…..facilitate the flow of rockets that rain on Israel” “In such a dangerous neighborhood, Israel has to be diligent….so we have to take seriously concerns in Israel…”  “I’ve done more than any other president to strengthen Israel’s security…”

He has “yet to hear one better deal than his… and I’ve asked for them..”

“It’s easy to play on peoples’ fears and magnify threats……..but these arguments don’t hold up.”

There are people who “have no compunction with being repeatedly wrong……” (Republicans)

He quoted Reagan and JFK about threats and how diplomacy is always better……

I believe he actually thinks that the world situation with Iran is similar to what Reagan or JFK confronted…….that’s scary in itself.

“We live in a complicated world…….a world of persistent threats……violence, cruelty is often common…..the USA remains the most powerful nation on earth but we are one nation among many and what separates us and makes us exceptional isn’t the mere fact of military might,  we have used our power to bind countries together…….”

If congress kills this deal….”we will have lost something precious…”

Watch FOX on this…..they’ll display the ironies and insults by the president better than I can here.

    Well, that would be me as I enjoyed a pleasant morning ride in the mountains on my Harley.
    I will, however, pick-up on [his] inane points as per FOX NEWS without having to endure [him] ad nauseam!

    My first thought is that if Iran only wanted electrical power, they would build 100% safe Thorium/Molten Salt reactors (That do not produce weapons grade nuclear waste), or they have enough oil to power themselves forever.

    This is proof positive they are going to build bombs under the watchful eye of the UN Nuklar Watchkitty El Barabadabba-something or other.

    From your comments:
    -what exactly has obama done to strengthen Israel’s security? I can’t think of a single thing. I remember he wanted Israel to go back the absolutely indefensible 67 borders.
    – Did Reagan believe in Diplomacy with real threats? I guess that is why he called Russia the Evil Empire to their face and threatened them with SDI, eventually collapsing the USSR.
    – Reagan’s deals with Russia regards restraints on our arsenal came after they collapsed.
    – What countries have we ‘bound together’ ?

    They/he just makes this **** up as they go along. Whatever sounds good. It has no relation to actual events.

    JMB…a ride on a Harley sounds SO good to me right now! And yes, watch FOX, you’ll get all the sides, including the one that doesn’t make Republicans look like war mongering idiots.

    Kid, I think you’re right. Some Israeli against this deal was interviewed afterwards and did say that Obama’s done a lot for Israel but I think that HAS to be the stand as they don’t want to lose the huge money America gives Israel; I get that. But, in general he was against the deal totally.
    Democrat Steve Israel also came down against the deal just before the speech.

    Cube…isn’t it awful? It was bad enough to just hear his words from the TV in the other room….watching would have raised the blood pressure into the stratosphere.

    I don’t believe most people even listen to him anymore, Z, much less believe him. He is a proven liar that even his staunch supporters can’t help but realize. Bush was criticized for the wars in the Middle East but people will soon come to realize when he did so, he was keeping it there in the Middle East instead of on our soil. Now we have shootings almost daily somewhere in our country and it can all be attributed to the actions and decisions of our “fearless leader” O whatshisname.

    Mal, Americans don’t much listen, but the world is listening; I don’t think it’s quite figured out how much Obama’s messing the whole planet up……..But he DOES represent the USA and that’s so scary. You’ll find interesting the discussions tonight on FOX, I’m sure……the speech is taken apart and wiser and more experienced minds prevail.

    I just made an offer to the Iranian government to trade Obama for a pile of camel dung. They said, “No way, Infidel.”

    Well, I tried.

    Hey Mustang! I also did something similar. Someone said Obama wasn’t fit to eat with the pigs, and I said YES HE IS!! See? I can be bi-partisan some times, also.
