Iran's Ahmadinejad compares Obama to Bush

TEHRAN (Reuters) – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused Barack Obama on Thursday of behaving like his predecessor toward Iran and said there was not much point in talking to Washington unless the U.S. president apologized.

Obama said on Tuesday he was "appalled and outraged" by a post-election crackdown and Washington withdrew invitations to Iranian diplomats to attend Independence Day celebrations on July 4 -- stalling efforts to improve ties with Tehran.

"Mr Obama made a mistake to say those things ... our question is why he fell into this trap and said things that previously (former president George W.) Bush used to say," the semi-official Fars News Agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.

"Do you want to speak with this tone? If that is your stance then what is left to talk about ... I hope you avoid interfering in Iran's affairs and express your regret in a way that the Iranian nation is informed of it," he said.

So now we have the worst of both worlds ... still hated by the Iranian kooks and appearing weak at the same time. Good job, Obama.

He believes the Obamessiah is his puppet, now. And, Obama is his puppet. He knows the Obamessiah is weak, now. And, Obama is weak.

Obama makes the French look more powerful than the U.S. And, the France is more powerful and authoritative than the United States of America, now.

The dictator uses his power and ties in the media to lie to his people. And the Iranian nutjob does this to his people too!

Blondie-I was going to comment on this article but when I read yours right off the bat, I knew there would be nothing I could write that would sum it up better.

Yep.

So, like, not meddling didn't work right? What a shock.

Of course the Iranians could teach us a thing or three in how not to meddle in the internal affairs of other countries, right? Because they don't have any opinions on Lebanon, Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan...

Let’s hope this is true: http://tehranbureau.com/iran-updates/

The following is from Mehdi Noorbaksh, Harrisburg University of Science and Technology:

There is a possibility, and I am saying a possibility, for a compromise on the election result among the involved parties in Iran in the next couple of days. I received a call from Iran late last night indicating that there is a possibility for a runoff between Mousavi and Ahmadinejad.

"Voting “present” is getting more difficult every day..."

Even our sociopathically detached boy president may be starting to see that his dishonest persuasive powers aren't as effective on people who hate America as much as he does but for their own whack-o ideological reasons.

“– President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused Barack Obama on Thursday of behaving like his predecessor toward Iran and said there was not much point in talking to Washington unless the U.S. president apologized.”

Well what do you think that Obama will do! yes he will apologize as maybe President Amadinejad didn’t undertand Obama’s message. So Obama will say he is sorry and its all George Bush’s fault.

This has got me thinking, I don’t recall Bushitler McEnron disinviting Iranian officials from a Fourth of July weenie roast.

Obama is breaking new ground in international faux pas.

"Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who normally stays above the political fray, has sided strongly with Ahmadinejad."

You know the "above the fray" approach.

It's the same posture our own dear Supreme Leader Ayatollah Obortion likes.

It makes it easier to get a bird's eye view of the masses, so he get a better feel of how to manage every detail of our lives, which he benevolently shares with us in his condescending way.

Achmed-didjerdog is just ticked because he didn't get what he paid for with his huge illegal contributions.

That’s a compliment to 0bama, while being an insult to Bush.

I would compare Amahdi-jihad to Hitler, but his mentality is below the level of elementary schoolyard, so he wouldn’t even compare to the Nazi lunatic.

He should add nyaa, nya, nya, nya, nya, nyaaaaa to his messages.

What a pathetic moron.

Mark my words. His destiny is to swing from one of those cranes he so loves to use, a la Haman of Esther fame, or to grovel in front of a firing squad.

a possibility for a runoff between Mousavi and Ahmadinejad.

But the result will be the same.
