HA.

This is just to try to pre-empt the upcoming 10 days of vacation coverage the Jeffersons were about to get.

Now they can say they're "working".

Just having realized he has one, he thought he’d get acquainted.

Worry about Israel not following his script for national suicide would be my guess as well.

Good timing. Just as Iran starts loading the nuclear rods. Did Israel tell zero’s administration that it would do nothing before the 21st?

http://www.usanewsweek.com/news/Israel-Has-Three-Days-to-Strike-Iran-Nuclear-Facility-y—Says-Bolton-1282071936/

Israel has time until weekend to launch an armed strike on Iran’s first nuclear plant before the risks of casualty becomes too great, former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton said on Tuesday. A Russian company is likely to help Iran run the nuclear plant on Saturday. Bolton said that after starting of the new plant the Bushehr reactor could trigger harmful radiation, which Israel would not like to face. He further said that Israel should take action immediately else it would get very late.

Israel is going to bomb the reactor and Obama knows it. This is going to get ugly since Obama, Russia and China are on Iran’s side.
