Obama on Iran: 'I don't bluff'
LA Times ^ | 3/2/2012 | Christi Parson

Posted on 03/02/2012 6:51:12 AM PST by LomanBill

President Obama's goal in upcoming talks with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is to persuade him that the United States "has Israel's back" so that Israel has no need to rush toward air strikes on Iran's nuclear facilities, the president said in a newly published interview.

In a meeting at the White House on Monday, the president told journalist Jeffrey Goldberg, he will try to persuade the Israeli leader that an attack now would backfire at a time when Iran is under increasing international pressure.

In an interview granted earlier this week and posted on the Atlantic magazine's website Friday morning, Goldberg reported that Obama is dismissive of a strategy of containment as unworkable and called it "unacceptable" for Iran to have a nuclear weapon.

Careful Iran - He'll huff and he'll bluff and he'll Blw your house down - just to keep his Marxist commie arse planted in the White Hut.

 

 

Don't need no Weatherman to see which way the wind blws.

 

"Behind the Violence, Says Jane Alpert, Was Sex"

--November 09, 1981--
"The leaders of the Weather Underground, she believes, followed a similar pattern of constantly shifting sexual alliances..."

http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20080637,00.html

"He [Bill Ayers] also writes about the Weathermen's sexual experimentation as they tried to 'smash monogamy.' The Weathermen were 'an army of lovers,' he says, and describes having had different sexual partners, including his best male friend."

Source: New York Times, September 11, 2001: "No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives; In a Memoir of Sorts, a War Protester Talks of Life With the Weathermen"
http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9F02E1DE1438F932A2575AC0A9679C8B63&sec=&spon=&pagewanted=1

"...the Weathermen, when not engaged in group sex, committed such revolutionary acts as parading with a Viet Cong flag through a local park on Independence Day and spray-painting the walls of a high school with the slogans, "Off the Pigs," "Viet Cong Will Win," and "F#$k U.S. Imperialism."..."

Campus Wars: The Peace Movement At American State Universities in the Vietnam Era

 

"What happens next bears watching closely, as does the response of the president, ex-Speaker Pelosi, and others on the left.  Encouraged by leftists in the Democratic Party and funded by left-leaning nonprofit organizations and celebrity contributors, Occupy Wall Street may in time morph into something resembling the radical factions of the late 1960s and 1970s."

” - - - I don’t bluff,” Obama said, according to the report. “I also don’t, as a matter of sound policy, go around advertising exactly what our intentions are. “

Orwell had his “doublespeak,” and Obama now has his “double lie.” The above quote shows two back to back lies.

Harken back to yesteryear and remember Obama saying to Speaker John Boehner, “Don’t call my bluff.”

Then recall The Obamanator’s explicit timetable of his intentions of pulling troops out of Iraq.

BTW, isn’t it amazing that Obama actually believes that if he says it, then “it” will turn into the truth? Obama must have been born on that river that runs through Cairo, Egypt. Darn! Can’t remember the name of it! It will come to me, - - -starts with a “D” - - - - - .

It’s impossible to bluff when every statement you make is a campaign speech and every action you will take is calculated to get votes even if it goes against earlier statements.

Bluffs only work when people believe that you mean what you say. Obama has a long history of not following through, even on simple promises. If something he said doesn’t happen it’s “Bushes fault” or Congress’ fault. Nobody would be dumb enough to fall for his bluffs. Even Democrats don’t believe him - they just prefer him over Republicans.

“I also don’t, as a matter of sound policy, go around advertising exactly what our intentions are. “

Like, for example, publicizing a date we will withdraw from Iraq?

Meathead is a pathetic excuse for a “leader”. I’m sure that in the right job he’d be great, but “president” ain’t it.

Ya, I remember Obama saying “Don’t call my bluff” to Republicans. I was a bit surprised at the time that our highly intelligent Harvard educated president was reduced to a game of “call my bluff” when dealing with congressional Republicans.

Little faggots with big power are dangerous. Always trying to compensate. This one is no exception.

ZBig propped up the straw Ayatollahs 34 years ago, and now his boy in the White Hut has been given a pack of matches to play with just as the global economic toilet filled with petro-a$$paper reaches flushing velocity.

A new war with Iran would assure Obama’s re-election. This is what this is all about.

This is how fascism works...unify the unwashed masses with an enemy from without.

Obama makes me sick.

I pray for our soldiers who now must become an arm of the Obama campaign to destroy America and build his fascist Utopia, starting with his re-election.

[It’s not even just 0bastard and the financial globalist robbers.]

We’ve got an entire generation in the “work”farce now who’ve never known a justice system in which the OJ Simpson farce wasn’t the standard.

Lying, Cheating, Stealing, driving like a$$holes, plagiarizing other people’s work - being generally sociopathologically corrupt - are only negative traits today if the perpetrator happens to get caught; and lesser so even then if their posse is wearing pink and purple on Thursdays in solidarity with their fellow Ubermunchkins... who fantasize on their gaym-boys about becoming Officers of Der Ubermenshch SS in the coming shiny progressive/anarchist Utopia.

Observe who it was that propped up the current regime in Iran - ala Operation Cyclone in 1978, under the umbrella of Jimmuh "Killer Wabbit" Carter. It was none other than:



Propping up "enemies" for Shock, Awe, fun and profit, has always been the modus operandi of ZBigniew Brzezinski and the manipulative dialectic Sabbatean uber-ilk who oozed out of the occult sewer pipe before him.

” - - - DeNile. Is that where ZBigniew Brzezinski found his boy - - - “

Ol’ Ziggy is from Prussia, (+/- Poland/Germany), and the other counterculture talking head is George Soros, also from Eastern Europe.

If my feeble memory of history is correct, Eastern Europe was one of the last areas of Europe to reject the Feudal System.

Thus, Ol’ Ziggy and Soros Ass George are both very comfortable with a return to the Quasi-Feudalism, commonly called “European Socialism.” Their strong support of Bolshevik Chairman Obama is money-in-the-bank for them.

Truman said it best, “Those who cannot learn from the lessons of History are doomed to repeat them.

So YES it is the “Dumb Ass River” in Egypt, and YES is the “DeNile River” also.

Dumb, because they/we refuse to learn, and Denial which is obvious by inspection.

BTW, isn’t Soros from the Carpathians? (We’d better find out or we will be “Left Behind.”)
