IBD: Iran's Tyrants Roll Obama Around Just As They Did Jimmy CarterTopics: Iran, Political News and commentaries
Barack Obama, the new Jimmy Carter?
That's the way IBD sees it:
Weakness: After weeks of kowtowing to Iran's tyrants, President Obama couldn't so much as get Hasan Rouhani to shake his hand at the U.N. Tuesday. Seems the mullahs still have a knack for detecting weakness in U.S. leaders.More HERE.
Has the U.S. ever fallen in global stature as far and as fast as it has under the Obama administration? Not even Jimmy Carter drew so many snubs, insults and slights from world leaders in such a short period as Obama has in this past month.
Tuesday, Iran's new president, Hasan Rouhani, who carefully cultivates a PR image as a "reformer" despite his close ties to the mullahs, blew off no less than three attempts by President Obama to shake his hand at the United Nations. The Iranian tweeted that he was meeting with the presidents of Austria, Pakistan and France instead. He literally told the leader of the Free World his busy schedule just wouldn't permit it.
Let that sink in: Iran is in deep doo-doo internationally because of its illegal nuclear program. And America is the one nation that might just be in a military position to stop it -- and its leader has better things to do ? ...
My guess is that we're going to see a lot more comparisons between Barack Obama and Jimmy Carter ... and almost certainly that's the way America's enemies are already seeing it.
