• The Totally Not-Out-of-Touch President Asks Why Some People Don’t Trust Iran

    President Obama is often accused of being naïve, out-of-touch, and full of wishful thinking when it comes to world affairs.

    Today, he did absolutely nothing to shed that image.

    During a joint press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron at the White House, Obama was asked about his administration’s insistence on trying to get a nuclear deal with Iran, and he was adamant that his team is doing the right thing.

    I think there is sometimes the view that this regime cannot be trusted, that effectively negotiations with Iran are pointless,” he said.

    Sometimes?

    Obama continued, “The question becomes, what other alternatives exactly are available? That is part of what we have to consider as to why it’s so important for us to pursue every possible avenue to see if we can get a deal. It’s got to be a good deal. Not a bad deal.”

    Still, time is ticking. And some reports have characterized Secretary of State John Kerry as frantically trying to get ANY sort of deal with Iran, in order to save face and protect the administration’s narrative. Obama went on to challenge Congress to be patient, saying that if Republicans don’t give him the time he needs to deal with the Iranians, he’ll take the argument “to the American people” … whatever that means. I’m assuming he was just referring to his pen again.
