Quotations from Chairman Barry

You may have missed President Obama’s mind-boggling statement regarding his friends in the Islamic Republic of Iran at his news conference this past Friday (complete White House transcript here, video excerpt below). Thus spake Chairman Barry: “When they launched ballistic missiles with slogans calling for the destruction of Israel that makes businesses nervous….If Iran continues to ship missiles to Hezbollah, that gets businesses nervous.”

Iran makes businesses “nervous” with its nuclear/missile program and its continuing support for terrorism. What about us people? And you have to love Obama’s characterization of the mullahs’ hypothetical continuing support of Hezbollah. His intelligence briefings aren’t clueing him in.

In any event, Obama remains cool as a cucumber. He’s unruffled by his friends in Tehran.

If Chairman Barry were not an ardent leftist in matters large and small, the media would long ago have made him out to be both a threat to humanity and a laughingstock, just as they did with President Bush (with a helluva lot less material to work with).
