First Syria, now Iran; Obama being played for a fool

The Syrian diplomatic and political debacle was bad enough, but last week at the UN President Obama embarked on a campaign for "progress" with Iran that will prove much more dangerous for American interests.

Just as Vladimir Putin had played him for a fool over Syria, Barack Obama was initially snubbed by Iranian President Hassan Rowhani despite frantic White House efforts to produce a handshake.

being played for a fool? I doubt it. Even if you believe O is a fool (and I do not), those that program him (and his damned teleprompter) are far from foolish. Evil, yes. Foolish, no way.
Not being played for a fool. Rather, deliberate protection of, and support for the rise of the IslamoFascist Caliphate in as many countries as possible around the world. And the weakening and eventual complete submission of the rest.

New world order Bolton fills us all in.

In truth, just as the Syrian President was romanced by high-level American elites a few years back, the conversations with Iran are a set up in the works to create a war down the road. Unless, of course, the Iranian leadership turns its nation over to new world order peacefully.

He’s not being played for a fool. He’d just rather be thought of as weak and foolish rather than the truth - evil.

Looking like a bumbling idiot is better than making it clear to everyone that you’re an enemy of America. This way you can carry on and do more damage than if you expose yourself for what you really are.

He’s friends with America’s enemies, and enemies with America’s friends.

Rogue countries are coming out of the woodwork to “negotiate” with the fool. He has established quite an international reputation.

And the alternative? Constant war a la 1984 against the Eurasians and East Asians?

Or maybe we should just "drop a bomb on them". Yeah, that's real mature.

“Played for a fool?” Are you kidding me, calling him a fool is overly generous, IMO.

I don’t think he’s a fool. I do think he’s the lord of lies. The people who advise and direct him have a lot invested in seeing the status quo maintained. Nothing else matters to them. I suspect that it was, for the time being, maintained. If the status quo does change, events will quickly spiral out of control and things will get really bad-1929 to 1945 bad.

Ninety percent of our militarism in the Islamic countries can be cut back with many benefits. . American forces should not be sent to protect or bring islamiNazi terrorist gangs into power. Clinton started but its become a major cancer in the last four years or so. We agree that mosy of this dangerously misguided militarism shod be cut back. And we do need to bomb the Iranian nuclear bomb and missile factories ASAP. Only a handful of those nukes are Intended for the Middle East. The rest of them are coming to USA as the Iranian dictators have repeatedly threatened or promised they will do. Not taking out that threat now would be the most foolish American policy decision in history. But of course there are profits to be made so. So. So?

While there may be many styles, many different sounds, when you get down to it you play a guitar like a guitar, a piano like a piano, and an Obama like a fool. Greater fools excepted I suppose, but how many of them lead a country of any consequence, much less a superpower.

http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=977...Soros has given voice to this sense of grandiosity many times and in a variety of different ways. In his 1987 book The Alchemy of Finance, for instance, he wrote: “I admit that I have always harbored an exaggerated view of self-importance—to put it bluntly, I fancied myself as some kind of god or an economic reformer like Keynes or, even better, a scientist like Einstein.”3 Expanding on this theme in his 1991 book Underwriting Democracy, Soros said: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood,” fantasies which “I wanted to indulge … to the extent that I could afford.”4 In a June 1993 interview with The Independent, Soros, who is an atheist,5 said he saw himself as “some kind of god, the creator of everything.”6 In an interview two years later, he portrayed himself as someone who shared numerous attributes with “God in the Old Testament”

If the Koch Brothers put out this line of crap the New York Times would mock them.... bet on it. But since the New York Times is made up of a bunch of butt kissers they'll ignore it - he's one of their own...

Money talks.
When the conservatives (who are supposed to know something about earning money?)
when the conservatives put up some real money (like Soroz and the House of Saud, etc.)

then American political races will get competitive again.

Otherwise, enjoy your Transformed, socialist, impoverished, weakened, IslamoNazi-MuslimBros-loving third-world country.

Obama? A fool? I think, yes. his time has come:

"As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron."
- - H.L. Mencken, The Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920
