Prior to this month's disputed presidential election in Iran, the Obama administration sent a letter to the country's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, calling for an improvement in relations, according to interviews and the leader himself.

This won't play well in Peoria...cutting a deal with Theocratic despots...inviting them over for hot dogs on the 4th...while they're shooting innocents on the streets.
There’s hope that not all WH reporters are potted plants and 0’s honeymoon may soon be over.
Garrett’s question-If you were so outraged, what took you so long to speak out -really rocked Barry.
Garrett then set off the Weinergate kafuffle by asking Obama if he was still inviting Iranian representatives to Fourth of July parties
for hot dogs and fireworks.
Barry refused to answer him and went off on a tangent about Iran that had nothing to do with the question.
I saw the clip afterward on the news. Wonder how long Major Garrett will be allowed in the press room.
Color me unsurprised.
If Obama truly didn't want to meddle in the politics of Iran, he would have waited until after the election.
Ah yes, this is the typcial MEDDLING OF A MARXIST POS WHO CODDLES ISLAMISTS AND COMMUNISTS
"Understanding" Obama is really quite simple. First ask, "what is best for Obama?"
Six months into the Clinton administration, I was embarrassed for my country.
Five months into the Obama administration, I am ashamed for my country.
Anybody have a video clip of that exchange? I’ve been in a hole all day long and haven’t seen any news.
Bumping you, maggie. Thanks. Chilling.
It’s not just you.
