Obama & Mahmoud go fishing

meetings without precondition

Obama has stated time and again that, as president, he would be willing to meet with and talk to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (and other rogue leaders). First it was without pre-conditions, then it was with "preparations". He has said on the campaign trail early on that we need to talk to Iran because "they're going to have responsibilities if Iraq collapses."

As Rush would say, what a "glimmering jewel of colossal ignorance." Of course they would. They have been "responsibile" for much of the killing of Americans in Iraq. Even Hillary has called Obama's desire to pal around with Mahmoud "irresponsible" and "frankly naive". And by the way, he gives away his true foreign policy plan with the "if Iraq collapses" phrase. That would be the result under his administration, where his goal is to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory. This is why Obama turned down McCain's proposal for them to visit Iraq together. He can't handle the truth of how well the surge is working.

Allahpundit at Hotair nails this:
The left would have you believe Iraq hawks can’t admit that any aspect of the war might be going badly, but the opposite has always been more nearly true. For purposes of the Narrative, it’s doves who can’t admit that any aspect of the war might be going better, as if to acknowledge that the surge has helped to improve security or that the Iraqi army is performing better than expected lately or that plenty of Shiites are tired of Sadr’s crap would be to validate neoconservatism or somehow tacitly rubber-stamp an invasion of Iran.
Maybe Obama's desire to meet with Ahmadinejad has nothing to do with foreign policy under his administration. Maybe Obama realizes he is going to get drubbed in the general election, and he is just trying to line up Mahmoud to pal around with. Maybe go bowling. They could get a burger at McDonalds and swap WWII holocaust fairy tales.

"Hey Barry. tell me the one again about how your uncle liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp."

"You first Mahmoud. Tell me the one about how Israel will 'soon be wiped out' and that the holocaust is just a myth".

Maybe Obama just sees a kindred spirit in Mahmoud and is looking for a fishing buddy so that he can get out of the house and away from the nagging...
