Skip to comments.Iran Snubs Obama, Turns Down His Offer of Meeting at UN
Posted on 09/24/2013 4:27:33 PM PDT by lbryce
After much speculation about whether President Obama and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani would meet, perhaps photographed shaking hands together, the Islamic Republic was the one that turned down the U.S. president.
Senior administration officials told the White House pool about half an hour ago that the White House had offered to have an encounter on the sidelines of UN General Assembly with Obama and Rouhani, but the Iranians informed the U.S. today that it is too complicated for Iranians to do at this point.
There will be no meeting, one official said, according to the White House pool report. It was clear that it was too complicated for them.
They stressed that Secretary of State John Kerry would press relations with his Iranian counterpart.
Still, officials tried to downplay the snub, saying that they were publicly and privately open to having discussions on the margins of UNGA.
The Iranians have an internal dynamic that they have to manage and the relationship with the United States is clearly quite different than the relationship that Iran has with other Western nations, a senior administration official said.

I must say, despite my vehemence towards the Mad Mullahs of Mendacity I can't help but enjoy the wry smile Iran has managed to put on my face for giving Obama the rear-ended comeuppance he sorely deserves. Let the b*tt-kicking go on!
Baraq muss gotta damn “kik mee” sign on he back.....
Problem is Obama is making America smaller and smaller and it will be that much harder for the next President to navigate US foreign policy.
ha ha and after all those love letters bozo the clown sent too.
Iran, as well as Europe and the middle east think he;s a massive joke.
Bush was respected and in some places not liked but at least it was respect with power. Bozo is just looked at as an idiot, a clown , a soft little homosexual pusher.
No one respect the clown, not the UK, Germany, Egypt , Syria, Libya north Africa, hell even Brazil has found out he;s a joke.
Let the WH pouting commence. Wonder who Obama will blame this on?
Why would they deal with a self-serving mental lightweight that is nothing more than a lame duck.
I’d diss Zer0 too.
Yeah, where is all of this going to get Hussein in the end?
They just messin wit our boy.
Ain’t nothin to it but to do it, holmes.
Well, Iran is Shi’a Muslims and Indonesians are Sunni and there’s bad feelings between them.
That’s probably all there was to it...
This undoubtedly has the lame-stream media’s collective panties in a bunch.
OMG!! AMERICA now has a KICK ME, I’M a 98 POUND WEAKLING sign on our back!!
It’s obvious that publicly dissing the President of the United States of America has become the latest thing in international politics.
Maybe it’ll go viral on YouTube like Tebowing or Twerking.
Obama can be safely ignored by anyone outside the US. He might stomp his feet and throw a little tantrum but that’s as far as it goes.
Any real governor completely disrespects the imbecile in the White House and his staff. The tragic part being they also disrespect a population that would elect such a clown. The latter opinion by world leaders is dangerous.
I really cannot think of any leader of any country (no matter what size) that is not more intelligent and more experienced than our slimy dork-in-chief.
Let us hope that the God that atheists don’t believe in (while they’re believing in global warming) takes care of the dork in whatever way he sees fit.
How much of this can the fragile ego in the White House
