    You do that when you want to become a rogue state.
    Which, in fact, they still are.

    You see, the Senate GOPs want to bottle up each bill with amendments like the Iran sanctions amendment.
    If they don't get it, they filibuster .

    He's been so busy cleaning up Bush's and Cheney's messes, some independent of each other, BHO hasn't got time to think of those clowns.
    He does have time to bait the House TEAts on Impeachment though, since he has nothing to sign from them yet ongoing business.

    I'm proud of him trying to solve our problems with both hands tied behind his back.
    And though you and Xy don't speak this way, some on dp are openly calling for Obama to be terminated .
    He said he has a pen and a phone.

    Partisan hyperbole. Very invaluable.

    Wrong, war is the last step in diplomacy. There's other options before that. Bush/Cheney had the lets just bomb em attitude, like McCain.

    Okay--just his right-hand is tied behind his back--so he can write his BHO on XOs.
    What is really torturing the TEAs is that Obama is tweaking them every day.
    And today's jobs reports, stock market and so much more are bringing a new dawn to the American dream.

    Really?
    How do you arrive at this conclusion?
    Shiite Iran would seem to be allied with Iraq's Shiite majority.
    How would Iraq's disgruntled Sunnis be reigned in by Iran?
    What about Saudi Arabia?
    No....no one holds the key to peace in the ME.
    Eventually, people will get sick of killing each other---maybe---and the violence will stop.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    Imposing sanctions and waging war/invasion are two different things.
    I would concede that both actions are equally ineffective.

    They do it by twitter

    So FLOTUS goes to twitter to battle against Boko Haram and Iran uses Youtube to tell the US to stop bullying them. What's next? North Korea creating a anti-Seth Rogan tumblr? Putin posting up Instagram photos of the next place he wants to invade? Mexico using LinkedIn to show people US jobs that they can get to send money back into Mexico? Israel and Gaza using eHarmony to pair up and find out they're actually comparable? China continually poking us on Facebook?

    And wrong, especially when it has not been CONFIRMED that Iran is building a nuclear weapon. Not that they shouldn't be allowed to since Pakistan, a less stabil country was allowed one.
