As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama: No Iranian Nuclear Weapon “on my Watch”

Whoa whoa whoa whoa waydasecond.

What’s going on here? The Israelis have picked up on something President Obama said in his interview with Tom Friedman, which appeared Saturday in the New York Times.

It appears the goal posts might have been moved a little bit, turning a 50-yard field goal try into an extra point kick.

“I’ve been very clear that Iran will not get a nuclear weapon on my watch, and I think they should understand that we mean it,” Obama told Friedman.

On my watch? Uhh, I thought the goal was to prevent them from getting a nuclear weapon on ANYONE’S watch.

Well, Obama possibly has prevented Iran from getting the bomb during the next two years. But as Obama himself said, probably accidentally,  “What is a more relevant fear would be that in Year 13, 14, 15, they have advanced centrifuges that enrich uranium fairly rapidly, and at that point, the breakout times would have shrunk almost down to zero.”

By then, Obama will be on the golf course EVERY DAY and President Chelsea Clinton will be dealing with it.

Sorry, didn’t mean to scare you while we were having a nice little discussion about Iranian nuclear weapons.

Former Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations – talk about thankless jobs – Dan Gillerman expressed urgent alarm:

Mr. President, this is not about your watch. This is about the Iranian clock, which is racing towards a nuclear device . . . this is about the life of our children and our grandchildren as well as your grandchildren. So if you don’t care what happens in 20 months, when you leave the White House, we do . . . I think the way that the president is trying to appease Iran is very similar to the appeasement of Hitler.

Gillerman also took strong exception to the White House insult of Prime Minister Netanyahu, done with a tweet mocking Netanyahu’s attempt to delineate the Iranian threat with a drawing of a bomb.

Strong words here from someone who served for years as a spokesman for Israel to the international community.

  1. Why should anyone be surprised anymore about what our pathological narcissist (Krauthammer’s description) of a President has said or done.

    Of course it is all about Obama and his “watch”. Let’s remember his “watch” when the mullahs detonate their first nuke.

  2. The damage that this president has done and will do to this Country will last for many years.

    While the tyrants in the middle east are rubbing their hands together because the United States of America has elected an individual that is determined to take Her to Her knees on the world stage, he is listening to a live performance of gospel music.
    ( How much of that is Christian oriented ?)

    His SoS is an avowed America hater, spoke against the military during the Nam war.

    The ex-SoS has the audacity to think that she can be president.

    Has someone already cued the clowns ?
    I missed the cue but it is obvious that they are already out there, on stage, and daring US to stop them.

    We have an impotent congress, unlikely to stop the skinny reprobate elected by idiots twice !

    We have an impotent congress who are afraid of the retaliation of a left leaning media that would damage their possibilities of re-election.

    We are being governed by fools, arrogant fools that have no regard for their constituents between elections.

    The media is going after Cruz and Paul.
    That means something, because if you are taking flak,…you’re over the target.

    The old saying goes,….This too will pass.
    The present administration will pass.
    The damage will take many years to heal.

  3. Translation:
    Won’t happen on my watch, but apres moi, le deluge.

    He’s even mailing in his spin attempts now.

    Easy to see why: the forecast for DC tomorrow is sunny, delightful, and mid-60’s.

    Fore!

  4. Well we’ve heard about this ” historic ” deal from Barry & Kerry, now let’s see how Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenel feels about it.
    Check out DRUDGE’s headline “Ayatollah: White House ‘ lying ‘
    has ‘ devilish ‘ intentions.

  5. so when the Iranians achieve breakout capability February 1, 2017, Obama can say (from the golf course) “wasn’t my fault, didn’t happen on my watch.”

    the sad thing is, I believe the mullahs over the president of the United States. their description of the non-deal deal is probably much closer to what the hapless Kerry agreed to.

    • I agree rulierose.
      I think that Obama strong armed Kerry into a deal,…any deal that would make Obama look good.
      All they have is an outline.
      This is the same thing they did with the ACA.
      All the blanks will be filled in later.

  6. Congressional Democrats will fall in line and Obama will veto any opposition being touted now. Iran will get everything it wants.

  7. Somebody, please make it stop! Wake me from this nightmare that just keeps getting worse!!! I’ve noticed lately that neither I nor anyone else even BOTHERS to say “Can you IMAGINE if a Republican said this”!

  8. He mentioned our grandchilren. No one else is speaking for the kids.
    As other readers made clear, Congress is not doing a dad burn thing.
    I mentioned this a couple of weeks ago. I have tried to search for thoughts on this deal from people in other nations. You would think at least Fox would take the time to get information on what people outside of the U.S. are saying about this.

  9. NEWSFLASH!!! Real Iran Nuclear Deal document discovered in John Kerry’s trash can.

    The simply worded, one page document was discovered mixed in with empty cans of Pate de Foie Gras and Dom Perignon bottles.

    The text of the agreement follows, verbatim:

    I(me), Barack H. Obama, promise to have ALL sanctions against the Republic of Iran lifted as long as said Republic agrees to refrain from using nuclear weapons against anyone (yes, even Israel) until the next President of the United States of America is sworn in. After that, have at it!

    Signed
    Barack Hussein Obama

  10. OT: Kansas man accused of planning T Bom. attack on Fort Riley.
    US Attorney said he has spent months to excute a plan, by blowing himself up as well.
    Faces three federal charges. Just heard on Fox news

  11. Bob Marley museum for POTUS…..I find it interesting how he’s in Jamaica while the survivors of Ft Hood rec’d purple hearts today….they have a one billion dollar lawsuit against the gov’t because since
    the gov’t refuses to admit that this was a terrorist attack their compensation is much less vs it’s a workplace incident….

    Hat tip to my wife on this one!

  12. As soon as the words left his purple lips, my head exploded. Obama is so unbelievably transparent – it’s almost comical. He has zero self-awareness in spite of the fact that EVERYTHING IS ABOUT HIM! My conclusion is that he is just plain DUMB!

    Most telling of all was Obama’s historic message to Putin: “I will be more flexible after the election’.

    Well, the election is over…and he is keeping his word.
