It begins: Obama drafting letter to new pen pals in Iran

Not to Ahmadinejad but to Khamenei himself, apparently. That way he doesn’t have to worry about getting any rambling 18-page replies.

State department officials have written at least three drafts of the letter, which gives assurances that Washington does not want to overthrow the Islamic regime but merely seeks a change in its behaviour. The letter would be addressed to the Iranian people and sent directly to Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, or released as an open letter.

The boy who would be president is setting himself (and us)
for a big disappointment.
He is a naive fool.

Is that it takes-clearing up our silly misunderstanding?

That Bush is a fool. All that huffing and puffing when all it takes is a kind letter!

First Gitmo, then the interview with Arab television and now this. It isn’t for nothing his middle name is Hussein.

Gays in the military. Trillion dollars in perpetual power. He has hit the ground running, hasn’t he?

I don’t think he’s going to be “tested” by the international goons any time soon. He’s intent on giving it all away for free without asking. Why should they push him?

The sellout to our enemies continues. He is “so being suckered in” isn’t he? First the news that he says the troups will be out Iraq, then he gives the notion that he’s reconsidering the missile in Poland, and how he’s mailing a letter to Iran’s leaders. The red (or yellow if you prefer) streak going down his back is getting more apparent every day.

It reminds me of the scene in “Independence Day” when the happy, jolly, peaceniks on top of the tall building greeting the enemy ship looked up with such promise of peace and BANG the ship took em out with one BOOM.

Ah, that would be the Western war adverse approach. The jihadist approach is entirely different: They see themselves as at war (perpetually), and they therefor follow the doctrine of attacking enemies when those enemies show weakness. And oh boy, is the zero showing weakness!

He is “so being suckered in” isn’t he?

No, I think it's his voters. He is a friend of Rashid Khalidi, his supporter. I don't think anyone here is suprised. Others may be, however.

Ahmadinejad had some preconditions for no-preconditions Obama:

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran said on Wednesday it would welcome President Barack Obama's offer of a change in U.S. policy provided it involved a withdrawal of U.S. troops from abroad and an apology for past "crimes" against Tehran.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was speaking after Obama offered to extend a hand of peace if Iran "unclenched its fist."

Ahmadinejad's not shy about the preconditions. Is Obama working on an apology to meet A-man's preconditions?

He really believes in kumbaya. It’s Bush’s fault. If only Bush had been more understanding Iran wouldn’t be developing nuclear weapons. Bush never made the effort to sit down and have a compassionate talk. But Big O can fix it! Let’s all join hands, sing and become one with the world. Then Iran nukes Israel.

There is one scene from that movie that I wish could be played out now, but only with the GOP is out of town. I think know which scene I’m referring to.

It is unbelievable. They are going to have a field day with this bozo. I;m wondering if they will be able to refrain from laughing in his face.

Can anybody think of a reason why Obama *won’t* just be Carter II? All I can think of is that inflation won’t be what it was because we have better monetary policy than we did then, but that’s out of the President’s hands.

“O” needs to get one of those Muslim ladies who do that freaky, high pitched, hog call thing with their tongues.

She can wail when its time for his staff meetings to start.

“Then Iran nukes Israel.”

I really think this is going to happen. And then what? Watch what happens to oil prices then. 0bama will have done NOTHING to get us toward real energy independence. We are going to have our backs to the wall and he’s going to back down.

Dear Ahmad,
My name is Barack Hussein Obama and I live in the USA.
I just moved into a big White House.
I have my own room and I even have my own basketball court!
I like arugula and surfing.
Well, that's all for now.
Please write back!
Signed,

They're going to play him like a yoyo, and he's already setting himself up for it.

After he gets this letter delivered, he will have one more to draft. If I might be at liberty, here is a rough draft to save him some time.

Dear Osama,
I just wanted to drop you a friendly note saying I hear your in bad health. Well I am sponsoring some really good health care initiatives and would love to extend my hand to you in getting back on the track of good health. Come to Washington when ever you like, I can send my new ride Air Force One to pick you up.

You can set yourself up in the East wing and chat with my friend William Ayers about reform and get the medical attention you really deserve. Stay as long as you like and be my house guest. Don’t worry about paying for anything, we have taxpayers.

Hope to see you real soon, Michele and Hillary send their best regards

Barack
