Talk about a tough week for America’s cognitively dysfunctional community organizer!
To begin with, patriotic and otherwise sane Israelis ignored Obama’s offensive meddling in their elections and instead voted in the best interests of the Jewish state and its six million residents. In a landslide victory described as “Against all odds,” the Likud party of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prevailed, securing an unprecedented 4th term for the feisty Bibi.
Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) added to The One’s misery by putting the nomination of Loretta Lynch as Attorney General off until probably mid-April, thereby leaving the Department of Justice in the unjust, racist hands of Eric Holder until at least then.
Finally, Obama turned to You Tube in a feeble attempt to use his vaunted charm and charisma to gather support from the Iranian people during the festival of Norwuz, the Persian New Year.
As reported, Iran’s lead Mullah was not amused:
Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Saturday ruled out any cooperation with the United States in the troubled Middle East, saying talks with Washington are confined to nuclear issues.
In a closely watched speech marking the Persian new year festival of Nowruz, Khamenei took steps to quell speculation that any nuclear deal with the West could lead to a wider rapprochement.
“No way,” he told a raucous crowd in the northeastern holy city of Mashhad, on the chances of an agreement on Iran’s atomic program having other policy implications.
“Negotiations with the United States are on the nuclear issue and nothing else,” he said.
“US objectives on regional matters are the opposite to our objectives,” Khamenei said, accusing Washington of creating instability in Syria, Libya and Egypt.
His remarks were greeted by chants of “Death to America” from the tightly packed thousands who gathered to hear him speak.
Khamenei’s comments appeared to be a blunt rejection of overtures made by US President Barack Obama that a nuclear deal could lead to cooperation in the Middle East, chiefly against Islamic State jihadists in Iraq and Syria.”
Thus ends Obama’s wretched week which started with an aborted death wish for Israel and concluded with “Death to America”chants in the terrorist capitol of the world!
That man Obama certainly seems to have a world-class knack for doing the wrong thing at the wrong time!
Happy New Year, anybody???
