What If Our Premature Nobel Laureate President is Having a '63-Style Kennedy Moment?Submitted by zooamerica on Fri, 11/29/2013 - 19:27
"Is a war-weary Obama suddenly starting to channel the '63 JFK?"
A Pre-Conspiracy Theory
"I’m going to engage here in a thought experiment which may make some readers a little queasy, but bear with me."
This is an interesting, well written short article that makes a very important point about president Obama. His recent actions regarding Syria and Iran are surprising to say the least.
The one thing the author forgot to mention about Syria was the massive public outcry over another war. Close to 90% of the American people were against it. War in Syria was politically toxic.
But what just happened with Iran was dare I say, something Ron Paul would do. Lift economic sanctions? Let Iran develop nuclear power, not weapons? No war?
What's going on here?
That appears to be one lingering sticking point between the two countries. Immediately after the deal was announced, Iranian officials were claiming that the agreement both recognized their right to enrich uranium and took military force off the table.
Speaking on CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday, Secretary of State John Kerry disputed both claims, calling them "not accurate."
A White House official said Wednesday that the United States does not recognize a "right to enrich," but President Obama does think the Iranian people "should have access to nuclear energy for peaceful purposes."
Did he really just say that? I agree with that waffle of a political statement. I think this means the old media's love affair with the president is officially over.
Welcome to the Daily Paul, Mr. President!
