Obama Cold Blooded on Iran, Capt.Taken Hostage and Economy
Obama golfs after 30 minute meeting with foreign policy advisers on Iran
Barack Obama steers the cart with his golfing partner, Vice President Joe Biden, left, as they finish 18 holes at the Fort Belvoir Golf Club together on Father's Day, Sunday, June 21, 2009.
U.S. President Barack Obama expressed concern about violence and "unjust actions" against Iranian demonstrators on Sunday in a meeting with advisers who updated him on fast-moving events in the Islamic Republic.
"At approximately noon today, the President met for more than 30 minutes in the Oval Office with foreign policy advisors to get an update on the current situation and developments in Iran," a White House aide said in an email.
"At the meeting, the president reiterated his concerns about violence and unjust actions being taken against the Iranian people."
Obama's comments echoed a longer statement he released on Saturday urging the Iranian government to cease violent actions against its own people. Unrest has convulsed Iran for days since a disputed June 12 election that returned hardline anti-Western President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to power.
Gunfire rang out in Tehran on Sunday after demonstrations culminated in the death of at least 10 people on Saturday. Iranian authorities dismissed the protesters as "terrorists" and rioters.
Ahmadinejad warned the United States and Britain on Saturday not to interfere in Iran's affairs, according to Iran's official ISNA news agency.
"The president of the United States is supposed to lead the free world, not follow it," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Sunday. "He's been timid and passive more than I would like."
Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said a slow or muted U.S. response risks undermining the aspirations of Iranian voters to change or question their government.
"If America stands for democracy and all of these demonstrations are going on in Tehran and other cities over there, and people don't think that we really care, then obviously they're going to question, 'Do we really believe in our principles?'" Grassley said

Wild Thing's comment.......
Obama is a degenerate , his cold heart and icy blood in his veins make it easy for him to go golfing while all that is happening in Iran.
Remember how he laughed when asked about the economy and was even asked if he was on drugs I think the interviewer.
Remember how Obama ducks question on terrorists (pirates) and Capt. taken hostage? He also had the reporter removed abruptly from the room afterward.

Did he just run for president so he could golf for free for life? That should be at the bottom of his list of things to do. He needs to learn to put "ducks in a row" as the Marines would say. If I don't feel well, I still go to work. I don't take personal days without getting permission first.

Good one Rhod, Obamarods.gov, let's see Briggs and Stratton or Tecumseh top this. But John Deere is another matter.

Yes, Barry Soetoro Obama or whatever his real name is, the follower of the free world.

Mark, I researched the Club Car.
King Obie's auto czar is considering robust powerplants made by Poulan. Homelite and Baby-Bee couldn't meet production demands for the really big sedans at their Beijing facilities. They admit that electric starters are years away from development, but new nylon pull-cords are standard.
Also, Fisher is out for the chassis and Husqvarna is in. Magneto Ltd, a division of Lucas, will handle the electronics and a cutting-edge Holley single-barrel is going into production.
I'm saving up right now.

More to the point, President Urkel's hyper-activity and shallowness is his kind of liberalism. He's the On-The-Other-Hand President -the kind of soul-destroying fool who deforms all disputes in order to find some pseudo-mathamatical equality in human struggles.
He's morally neutral on everything, which doesn't liberate anyone from political or mental tyrannies. This is the result: Some leftard imbecile called a local talk show today here in CT and claimed that Obama/America has no moral authority on Iranian despotism because of Kent State.
Only a moral pervert could deduce any factual, historical, circumstantial or moral equivalency between Kent State and Iran's chaos. This is what passes for deep thought among the sweat hogs of liberalism. If you ask me, the callerr was simply speaking for Obama and all other leftards.
In this kind of world, evil doesn't have to triumph, it just has to wait.

I'm reminded of that other 'black leader 'Idi Amin. This is but one example of the leader we have. I'm emotionally torn as to whom to hold accountable on retribution day, that post turtle didn't get there by himself.
Pst!!! Buy Ammo!!!

obama is king. Kings don't make great decisions. They just live the luxurious life of royalty. Right now the king is tied up with moving a health plan through his round table(Congress) and that is what his town criers will be zeroed in on. Also, the king's time is needed for photo-ops.

Jack, the king will eventually appoint a Fun Czar, who will find a way to tax it.

Rhod, can you imagine trying to start that guvment POS in the winter time at about 20 below, oh yea a nylon pull cord thats about par for the course, then the other thing will be getting that little POS out of the driveway, in 18 inches of snow, hell the tires will be buried at that point.
Oh I just love those people who want to bring up Kent State. First they destroyed the town of Kent, Knocked a worker off a ladder who was trying to repair one of the signals those libtards had destroyed he eventually died. Then after all this the guard was called in, after it had become a full blown riot. These bastards have a selective memory. But what is puzzeling to me how come so many of the Guardsmen missed, they were using M-1's.
But whats really amazing is half these experts weren't even born yet.

LMAO Rhod, yeah you are right another czar, wow those things are noisy though. :) Sheer joy.
As for Kent State, damned good thing I wasn't there, I'd been home from the zoo only 9 months and was in no mind for domestic terror. For once the threat was real and reaction was real, and Kent wasn't Los Angeles and Watts where troops stood against them with an empty rifle in a toothless defense. Don't want trouble don't stir it up.

his life had it so good and he deserves
it less then anyone in the world. augh!!!!

Bob A., yes the word free takes on a
whole new meaning now since Obama.
We are paying for all his wishes.

No way, I LOVE it Rhod, no problem at all.
