Obama Claims Bush Administration Dropped the Ball on Iran
PJ Media ^ | 4 Mar 2012 | Anon

Posted on 03/04/2012 11:12:05 AM PST by Rummyfan

President Obama sought to convince the crowd at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference today that “when the chips are down, I have Israel’s back.”

He also placed blame on the Bush administration for letting Iran become the threat it is today, claiming that a policy of putting pressure on Iran was “in tatters” when he took office.

“If during this political season you hear some question my administration’s support for Israel, remember that it’s not backed up by the facts,” the president said.

He also said he has “no apologies” for pursuing the Middle East peace process, which is effectively stalled, while continually pressing that he is a friend of Israel.

The one period in recent history when Iran shuttered its nuclear program was spurred by the U.S. invasion of Iraq. Iran feared it would be Bush's next target. Libya was so shocked by the invasion they scrapped their WMD programs and invited U.S. oil companies back into the country. What derailed the momentum was the Fifth Column formed by Democrats and the U.S. news media to discredit Bush and his Mideast policies and encourage the enemy. Obama was a prominent member of that cabal of traitors.

You got that right. RR left Iran with ONE option on day one. They exercised that option.

Bush let Iran get powerful?

Obama’s own words many months ago when Iran’s youth were in the midst of a rebellion of freedom, “We shouldn’t interfere”.......

This man is so full of horse sh!t. Yet, his constituency will parrot this because they don’t care about the lies; they didn’t care about Slick’s BJs. They only care about selfish theft of other peoples’ money. Screw them all. All of them.

Jimmy Carter's policy of putting pressure on Iran to release the hostages was "in tatters" when Ronald Reagan took office. They were released just as he was finishing his inaugural address. Coincidence?

0bama is blaming Bush for what 0bama did after Bush left office.
We were already in two wars trying to prevent a third.
0bama has had 3 years to make the Iranians see reason.
Instead he went on an apology tour and now nobody in the middle east respects him.
What exactly was Bush supposed to have done about that?

It is known by everyone that prior to Obama Occuping the White House by violent force in 2009 that Iran had no Nuclear program and no ambitions for a Nuclear program.

And once Obama did seize power in the US and install his Marxist Regime that his first order of business was to transfer the materials, the technology, the scientists and the equipment needed to build nuclear weapons.

GW Bush also screwed up the Peloponesian War

That's why Thucydides' history stops before the end of the war. A member of the Bush family "persuaded" Thucydides to suppress the final portion of the work, where he revealed the Bush family's responsibility for the outcome of the war.

Haliburton got a handsome pay-off for sabotaging the Athenian war effort and for failing to show up with food supplies at Aegospotami.

“President Obama sought to convince the crowd at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference today that”

From the applause hussein was getting from the audience, I think he did convince them that he is their saviour.

Truly disgusting.
What’s more is the ridiculous, “well, Bush is just being traditional and it looks bad if he criticizes a sitting president”...horse hockey. The country isn’t smart enough to see through Obama’s lies...proof is Obama is president.

I predict Obama will attack Iran before Israel will. Israel is likely planning it and trying to do it before Obama does.
Obama would rather do it after end of summer. IMHO.
