The president said the new sanctions against Russia -- which hit major Russian banks and lucrative energy and defense entities -- are in large part for allowing weapons to cross into Ukraine and other involvement in that country.
Obama also said that Iran has made significant efforts to fulfill its promise to scale back its nuclear program -- including international inspections -- ahead of a July 20 deadline. But he said he will talk with Congress in the coming days about whether to extending the deadline, saying there are still significant gaps.

Sure -- what "wise president we have..." (if I need a sarcasm tag for this, I am in the wrong forum...)
Yeah, lets talk about anything but the imminent disaster Obama has visited on this country from south of the border.
I notice much of the MSM doesn't even report on it anymore.

More “wisdom” from Obama...:
Obama: Iran talks may take more time
“He added in remarks at the White House that more time may be needed to continue talks beyond the July 20 deadline for a comprehensive agreement.
Obama said that Iran has met its commitments under the interim accord.”

I trust NASA is working diligently on that space launch trampoline we are going to need to get to the ISS and launch satellites after Putin retaliates.

(Obamacare: It's. The. Flaw.)
Some European leaders have been wary of deepening penalties on Moscow out of fear that their own economies could suffer, given the deep trade ties with Russia. In recent days, Obama administration officials have been pressuring their European counterparts to press forward and warning that they could take unilateral action if the EU continued to hesitate.

Hussein is such a pantywaist.
King Obama did what? Hits Russia with what? Wow, what a King.
Obama wants a war, a terrorist attack and a nuke attack on Israel.
