The talking point of the week was that Obama would “negotiate with terrorists but not with the Republican Party.” That was only partially true. Though the president does refuse to negotiate with “Republican extremists,” he claims he will “negotiate” with the Iranians who are in the process of developing nuclear weapons and also have Islamist ties to terrorism. The discrepancy lies in the definition of the word “negotiate.” It is sort of like defining what the meaning of “is” is.
Beginning his news briefing Friday, Obama strode to the podium and stunned his groveling media allies by announcing he had spoken by phone with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani for approximately 15 minutes. It was the first direct conversation between
Barack Obama made a phone call that must have been impressive, because the MSM could not stop talking about it.
Talking and negotiating are not synonymous. Talking is simply talking. Barack Obama is good at that. It’s his forte. Saying something significant other than misrepresenting the truth is a different matter, however. Mr. Obama is also a master of delivering boldfaced untruths. Most people call that lying.
Does Barack Obama honestly believe a deal can be reached over
“While there will surely be important obstacles to moving forward and success is by no means guaranteed, I believe we can reach a comprehensive solution,” said Obama at the briefing.
Two important aspects of that sentence immediately jumped off the page. “Obstacles” is first. For Obama an obstacle is one of those “bumps in the road” he mentioned while dealing with terrorism. Apparently Barack Obama has no clue what an “obstacle” really is when confronting
The second factor was the words “success is by no means guaranteed.” Since when is anything guaranteed in the

Barack Obama is becoming the Neville Chamberlain of the 21st century. This president believes he can smooth-talk Muslim extremists into negotiating with him while they continue their delaying tactics and play him like Ringo Starr’s drums.

Obama went on to say, “…the test will be meaningful, transparent, and verifiable actions, which can also bring relief from the comprehensive international sanctions that are currently in place”
The entire process would be hilariously funny as a Saturday Night Live routine if it wasn’t so dangerous and ominous. It is frightening to see a President of the

Now we have another “red line” in the sand, only this time it has been drawn against the Republicans with whom the president refuses to negotiate at all. Negotiating Obama-style is a one-way street. His way or no way.
Putting it another way, if the government shuts down, then the president shuts down because Mr. Obama believes HE, and only he, is the government.
President “Red Line” is at it again, blaming everyone but himself for the muck and mire of his administration. Imagine any other president in American history talking down to the people who elected him the way in which Barack Obama does.
Barack Obama’s rhetoric has grown repetitive, meaningless, tiresome and old. Our unscrupulous leader is a man without leadership. He is the class warfare president who quite simply has no class.
