    Goobieman asked what Obama's plan is if talks fail; he didn't accuse him of not having one. It's a perfectly legitimate question.

    But if you think there is one, what is it?

    And I said let's wait until he tries before we start talking about failing.

    This isn't the Bush admin, I'm sure they've talked about what the next step would be if talks don't prove fruitful. I, like the rest of us, are not privy to that info.

    "Retard"? NICE. Maybe you should have a look at the Special Olympics' current campaign:

    http://www.specialolympics.org/stw_resources.aspx

    It's time to Spread the Word to End the Word. Use this toolkit to raise awareness and encourage people to pledge not to use the "R-word."

    Spread the Word to End the Word is a National Awareness Day to raise awareness of the hurtful effects of the word “retard(ed)” and encourage people to pledge to stop using it. On 31 March 2009, young people across the country will lead local efforts to raise awareness and collect pledges from peers and the community to vow not to use the R-word. Actor and activist John C. McGinley, of the hit show “Scrubs,” will be helping with this effort by making national media appearances on behalf of the Spread the Word to End the Word campaign.

    Join the movement and Spread the Word to End the Word. Click on the links below for information and resources to get you started (all are Adobe PDFs unless otherwise noted). Check back often, as more resources will be added. If you have questions, please e-mail r-word@specialolympics.org or call 1-800-700-8585.

    What kind of a response is this? "I know you are, but what am I?"


    And I said let's wait until he tries before we start talking about failing.
    Yeah, I know, and I responded. But this doesn't speak to whether or not GM was accusing Obama of not having a plan. You read that into what he said, I didn't.


    This isn't the Bush admin, I'm sure they've talked about what the next step would be if talks don't prove fruitful. I, like the rest of us, are not privy to that info.
    That's not an answer, and it doesn't show GM is accusing them of not having a plan.

    That haven't been said, considering all the stupid little things they've gotten wrong which were so easily avoidable, and the medium things like not properly vetting appointees for tax problems, is it that much of a stretch to imagine they don't have big stuff covered very well?

    Or will that be taken care of with a "reset" button (with the wrong word on it)?

    Re: Obama calls for new start with Iran

    Obama by this act told Iran they won.

    Its Obam admitting the 'west" or at the very least the USA under him..is emtpy adn bendaable to Irans will.



    Threaten and you will get what you desire out of Obama.

    Russia proved that by threatening our allies in Europe and having Obama send them a letter declaring he would give in on it for their help with Iran..
    Iran is now proving once again that Obama will give in to threats.

    That both countries in the end told him to piss off in favor of continuing their actions ,.is no shock..they totally expect and should totally expect more apeasment offers from him.


    The Left likes to act like talking is a new thing..EU negotiated with Iran on this for almost a decade.

    Iraq was never a quagmire, and not only did we win the war, we've won the hearts and minds of the people of Iraq who are now free to hold democratic elections.

    Please feel free to thank President Bush for standing firm on his principles, and leading us through this great victory.

    Re: Obama calls for new start with Iran

    My favorite bit is how he says this will "not be advanced by the use of threats from Iran"

    ??

    They threatened and what is Obama doing?

    The problems with protestors is that they easily allow their protests to define the reality and thusly becoming as BS as those they protest.

    Re: Obama calls for new start with Iran

    Look beyond the words.

    This "new start" is exactly the talk that needs to be put out there. With the Taliban continuing to bleed and military drones continuing to blast radicals and extremists in Pakistan....do people really think that Obama is clouded or jaded over what Iran is? I keep saying this...."Obama is no Carter."

    If Europeans need to hear this kind of talk coming out of Washington to feel warm and cozy about the world they live in then so be it. But the truth of Iran does not escape Washington. Obama made same conditions without the last administration's bluntness. He talked about the responsibility Iran would have to embrace to take its seat at the international big boy table and remarked about a greater focus on building and creation vice destruction. Like the Islamic terrorists that makes impossible demands just for the sake of continuing the fight, Obama is giving Iran two choices; turn away from its four decade quest for nuclear arms and its support for Hezbollah and rhetoric of a destroyed Israel ....or.... just acknowledge what the world already knows about it, which is that it will not stop until it extends power over the Middle Eastern region.

    Bush wrote Iran off as the terrorist loving destructive nation it is. Obama is merely giving Iran a chance to prove it. I've warned and warned that Bush supporters and Obama worshippers have only petty party enslavement keeping them from realizing how alike they are.
