Skip to comments.Obama in Riyadh: Iran nuclear deal sign of 'strength, not weakness'
Posted on 04/21/2016 1:19:23 PM PDT by Nachum
President Obama vigorously defended his nuclear negotiations at the end of a summit of Persian Gulf state leaders and a rocky visit to Saudi Arabia aimed at reassuring the anxious ally and seeking more support for the fight against the Islamic State.
While the president acknowledged Saudi concern that the United States should not be "naïve" when dealing with Iran, he cited previous presidents' willingness to engage in talks with Russia during the height of the Cold War as models to follow.
"John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan still negotiated with the Soviet Union even when the Soviet Union was threatening the destruction of the U.S.," he said.
"That's the same approach we have to take. Even as Iran is calling us the great Satan, we were able to get a deal done that reduces their nuclear stockpiles. That's not a sign of weakness, that's a sign of strength."

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
They negotiated they didn’t sell their nation down the river.
“”John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan still negotiated with the Soviet Union” —— Obama did not negotiate, he gave them everything they wanted with nothing in return. Obama capitulated.
Yeah....the TERRORISTS are now stronger than ever!
Just quickly thinking back, I know other presidents did negotiate with enemies, but can't recall any who gave nuclear capability to an enemy muslim nation
that was openly dedicated to destroying us.
But then I don't reacall any other muslim presidents either.
Since when has his negotiations ever been successful other than arming our enemies , and estranging our allies ?
Sounds more like "Lurch 2.0 " !!
Un utter fool never knows he is one.
Really? He's comparing his capitulation to Iran to JFK (who was more conservative than most Republicans today) and Ronald Reagan? I am just astounded by the hubris and gall this socialist community organizer espouses almost daily. They may have both had communications with the Soviets, but neither would give away the upper hand. Sheesh.
Think about the strength of both of those Presidents. JFK made the Soviets stand down in the Cuban Missle Crisis. That took major cojones that Obambi doesn't have. Reagan made the Soviet Union fail and the wall came down in Berlin.
Where’s Rosie O’Donnell screaming “Delusional!”?
When Reagan and Kennedy negotiated with the Soviets, they ALREADY had nukes and we were talking under the precept of MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction)...
Basically a stalemate and level playing field to negotiate...
This deal is completely apples and oranges...
We are giving our sworn enemy the capacity to blackmail us...
As normal the media is either too stupid or too afraid to point that out...
This deluded man suffers from diarrhea of the mouth.
The Iranian bomb Latmatv The song
He knows exactly what he’s doing - going after Israel via his proxy Iran - hence $150 billion dollars to Iran.
All aided by Ted Cruz and the Corker Bill.
That puts BamBam opposed to Israel’s God.
I don’t have to guess to know Who is going to win in the end.
Laugh it up, BamBam. For now.
I’ve always found the smell of 0bama accidentally picked up on my shoe to be powerful too.
“Obama in Riyadh: Iran nuclear deal sign of ‘strength, not weakness’”
In Oxxxxxx’s world:
Black is white.
Losing is winning.
Hot is cold.
Up is down.
So, for all our strength, what did WE get out of it Dumb Bastard?
You are correct. That just means he succeeded (per his goals).
Yeah, we are strong. Let them drop nukes on the West! We can handle it!
