Iran Snubs Obama, Turns Down His Offer of Meeting at UN
PJ Tatler ^ | September 24, 2013 | Bridget Johnson

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.

They're all lining up like in some carnival exhibition. Last week it was Putin, today the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani gets to punt Obama's oh!-so-sore rear-end through the political goal posts as the next leader in line to kick hard, very, very hard the fudged-packed b*tt of the world's #1 politically impugned, Muslim Brotherhood member laughingstock of the global community. Speaks loudly to the obsequious, boot-licking pusillanimous appeasing policy of all things scary and threatening to Obama in the world.

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!

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.

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...

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.

He didn’t want to shake hands with a homosexual muslim. It is an offense in Iran punishable by death.

Unfortunately, the Iranian government does not have an unapologetic traitor in office at the moment.

I suppose nobody told Iranian President Hassan Rouhani that Obama would be happy to bow before him. Maybe even bend over.

If dems can pull in enough third world 'takers' and pay them off by getting them 'to vote their self interest' they'll run the place forever. We're close to a tipping point.
