President Obama: “My Image Is More Important Than Iranian Nukes”

Published by at 9:31 am under All General Discussions,Iran

The President seems to have seriously ruffled some EU feathers at the UN (which probably has a lot to do with Chicago’s lackluster run at the Olympics) by pushing his personal image over that of the interests of the international community:

The President is believed to have angered the European leaders by insisting on delaying a joint press conference until after he had chaired a meeting of the UN Security Council.

Mr Obama is said to have been worried the announcement would undermine the impact of his session on nuclear non-proliferation.

The One does not have time for such trivial issues as a nuclear armed Iran. He has to present his glorious presence to his people after all!

Trust me, I have worked with Europeans and this kind of snub irritates the daylights out of them, the more so because it is a deadly serious manner. Another O-Bomba moment.

Addendum: Truly, this man wanted the spotlight instead of sending the message, given is lame excuse:

But Mr Obama did not want to “spoil the image of success” of his disarmament session, which passed a resolution to work towards a nuclear-free world and a host of measures designed to control the spread of nuclear weapons and reduce existing stocks.

How could challenging Iran’s hidden nuclear facilities collide with his image of fighting the spread of nuclear weapons? The two dovetail nicely, and he would have picked up the respect of the hard liners here and abroad. Clearly, this presidency is all about ‘me’ (the imperial ‘me’ of course).

And I thought Clinton was self absorbed.

    Obama has no policy, he has photo ops where he speaks.

  2. lurker9876 says:

    Obama wants everyone to fawn over him. Little does he realize that not everyone will.

  3. lurker9876 says:

    Clinton is still self-absorbed.

    Next week’s poll numbers may be interesting.

    Bush is quite different from Clinton and Obama.

  4. Terrye says:

    At least Bush acted like being president was serious. This guy is starting to scare me.

  5. owl says:

    Scary. Nope, he’s not Bush.

    I’ve got an off-topic question for anyone from Virginia which relates to the Deeds-McDonnell race. I read that McDonnell was being criticized for wanting to sell the state owned liquor stores.

    And all is could think was WHAT? What the HELL is the State of Virginia doing owning LIQUOR stores, for cryin’ out loud?!? Okay, I looked up and found that there are currently 18 ABC states – but really, that’s insane! No state has any business being involved in the retail end like that – what possible justification could there be for that in this day and age? I understand it got started coming out of prohibition – but that’s an awful long time ago.

    It’s astounding that Virginia, a supposedly conservative state, could so blithely accept what can only be described as a hard core socialist model for this business. You know, I’ve seen the alternative, and society works just fine without the State owning the liquor business.

    This makes things a little weirder …

    Israel’s prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, has handed the Kremlin a list of Russian scientists believed by the Israelis to be helping Iran to develop a nuclear warhead. He is said to have delivered the list during a mysterious visit to Moscow.
    Netanyahu flew to the Russian capital with Uzi Arad, his national security adviser, last month in a private jet.
    His office claimed he was in Israel, visiting a secret military establishment at the time. It later emerged that he was holding talks with Vladimir Putin, the Russian prime minister, and President Dmitry Medvedev.
    “We have heard that Netanyahu came with a list and concrete evidence showing that Russians are helping the Iranians to develop a bomb,” said a source close to the Russian defence minister last week.

    Iran has already been a close observer of North Korea’s project. I would expect Iran to be in possession of whatever North Korea has. The NorKs need oil. Iran has oil. If the NorKs can’t pay in cash, they can pay in nuclear know-how.

    I suppose on some level we should be thankful that Obama is a narcissistic incompetent Marxist radical surrounded by a coterie of nasty Marxists at least one level above their level of incompetence, rather than being a thoroughly competent Marxist surrounded by other competent Marxist revolutionaries.

  10. KauaiBoy says:

    Something about competent Marxist sounds oxymoronic like democrat principles. But I worry now that the Chicago mob lost its Olympics graft and kickback bid that they will take it out on America further—second rate schysters from the second city that they are.
