Obama the comedian

President Barack Obama addressing Iran's leaders today:
"The United States wants the Islamic Republic of Iran to take its rightful place in the community of nations. You have that right -- but it comes with real responsibilities, and that place cannot be reached through terror or arms, but rather through peaceful actions that demonstrate the true greatness of the Iranian people and civilization. And the measure of that greatness is not the capacity to destroy, it is your demonstrated ability to build and create."
This from the leader of a country whose place in the world is above all achieved with the use of arms and not peaceful actions, and whose "capacity to destroy" has been on display for all to see in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Somalia, Haiti, Panama, Yugoslavia and on and on and on. And he dares to lecture the leaders of a country which hasn't attacked another country in hundreds of years. It would be funny if it weren't so sick.

I remind readers that just nine days ago Obama issued the following official proclamation:

The President declared a national emergency with respect to Iran pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 1706) to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States constituted by the actions and policies of the Government of Iran.
And now he dares to talk about "new beginnings." Please.
