Rouhani declines to meet Obama at United Nations General Assembly
weeklystandard.com ^ | 9/24/13 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 09/24/2013 1:09:14 PM PDT by ColdOne

The White House pool reporter says an unnamed official claims President Obama offered to have an "encounter" with his Iranian counterpart, but was turned down:

Senior administration officials came to pool hold around 2:45pm to say that the White House had offered to have "an encounter" on the sidelines of UNGA with Iranian President Rouhani, but the Iranians informed the US today that it is "too complicated for Iranians to do at this point."

The Iranian leader already got what he wanted - that Obama was MORE ready and willing to talk to him than he was ready & willing to talk to Obama. That difference spoke volumes to the Iranian leader, to what he thinks are the next U.S. concessions he can seek.

Quite right. Obama already gave away his advantage by acting like the supplicant. Yielded the power to this novice Iranian figurehead, same as the old figurehead incidentally.

"Amateurs" is putting it kindly.

He was warned by Netenyahu any attempt would be a trap.

This guy is so stupid, he probably needs the teleprompter to alert him when to breathe.

Can’t blame you pal, I hear she’s kinda `high maintenance.’
But get her strapped into a wheelchair, then ease her into a burqa, some canings and you’re looking at wife #6.

Obama is a really bad poker player. Putin demonstrated that. No other world leader needs to respect him anymore.

His red line has rendered him irrelevant on the world stage and can be pretty much ignored. Bullies and narcissists don’t tolerate that well.

Obama is desperate to regain his stature and he may become dangerous to the United States through his desperate actions. Scary.

We are so screwed.
