    Would obama make a deal with Iran to bolster himself

    It's pretty clear since the pitfalls of his signature legislation are shinning thru, the democratic parties nuclear option on the senate, his own White House kicking the media photographers out, the pres had had a pretty lousy 15-30 days so would he make a deal with Iran just to turn the tide? Make him look all presidential again?

    Before you say no way, what did billy jeff do after being caught with Monica?

    The right wing is going to hate this deal no matter what happens.

    But for me, as long as it keeps the peace, I'm fine with it.

    We don't need to be involved in another war over there.

    It never ceases to amaze me what level of hyper-partisanship would lead someone to conclude that it's bad for the president to do something positive because it makes him look good.

    It would really kill me if Obama, say, pushed for the return of Glass-Steagall because that might make me like him more.

    While I'm not psychic, I'm going to guess that Joko's use of the "rolly eyes" smiley may indicate sarcasm.

    If I'm not mistaken the sarcasm was targeted towards Jetboogieman's comment not joko's own.

    He was rolling his eyes at me.

    When it comes to Obama, Joko is never sarcastic.

    He's pretty rabidly partisan with him.

    Targeted along with, not at. It's like laughing with someone instead of at someone.

    At the risk of sounding uneducated... what is the outline of this "plan" All the details I've found is that the Iranians like the deal and Israel hates it which to me, not knowing the details, doesn't seem good.
