At least Mahmoud makes President Obama look really good.

    President Obama spoke at the UN this week and delivered an eloquent pretty pro Israel and pro Palestinian speech among other things. Nothing ground breaking, but at least it didn't embarrass anybody and won't provide a lot of provocative sound bites.

    Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, on the other hand, delivered a blistering diatribe against the USA for the manner in which they assassinated Obama bin Laden as a 'cover up' for the lie of 9/11, among other obscenities.

    The U.S. and the entire European union and some others, some 30 or so representatives of countries in all, walked out on him.

    An interesting day at the U.N.

    Sadly, there are some Americans who seem to agree with Ahmadinejad.

    When you set the bar really really low, it is not hard to jump over it.

    No seriously. President Obama gave one of his better speeches.

    I'm just wondering if our 'truthers' will agree with those delegations who walked out on the fearless leader of Iran?

    so instead of just saying ahmadinejad's a nutbar... something most of us can agree on... you had to couch it in terms of comparison to the president?

    even when you agree with what the president did, you guys can't leave it alone. it's really bizarre to me.

    If you could just be a bit more objective, Jillian, you would see that I made no comparison of any kind. All I did was matter-of-factly report that Presient Obama spoke at the U.N. this week and did a pretty good job.

    In contrast, however--not comparison, contrast--Mahmoud used the occasion in an anti-semitic tirade against the United States.

    At least 30 countries supported the USA's walk out on that.

    I was just wondering how many of our American 'truthers' would have walked out?

    I AM objective. I objectively assessed that, regardless of content, you intended your thread title to be a dig. It's cute to watch people do that and then say "i don't know what you're talking about". i've known children who do that, too... but they outgrow it when they turn 12.

    it would have been more "objectively" appropriate for you to just say he did exactly what he should have done.

    i've never understood why they allow Ahmadinejad to speak whenever he brings his lunatic butt to NY.

    I don't know re troofers... i don't have a lot of patience for them.

    see, that's the thing... once again, there was something there we could agree on... left, right and center. only nutters and terrorist supporters would have disagreed with us. and we'd have agreed about them being nutters and terrorist supporters...

    but for the title of the thread and the comments about the president "not embarrassing us". (when his predecessor was the one who embarrassed us).... which is what i was referring to.

    Pathetic, even for you. Obama stood up for Israel, the nut from Iran fucking lost his mind.

    Piss on you, FF.

    Negged.

    Did I say he did not? Did I criticize him in any way for what he said? No I did not. Your neg reflects a serious misreading of what I said. Obama was applauded for his speech. Thirty countries walked out on Ahmadnejad.

    I think you owe me an apology.

    I defy you to show any dig in anything in the OP. I commented that Obama gave a pretty good speech that was pro-Israel and also pro-Palestinian. It was focused on the proposed statehood for the Palestinians. It almost certainly provoked some of the comments from the President of Iran who of course wants Israel obliterated.

    I think we do agree on it, but you chose to make it something partisan. I was not making it partisan in any way.

    The question is that 30 countries walked out on the Pres. of Iran. Yet much of his speech was some of the same nonsense we hear from the Truthers. I wondered if they would criticize what he said?

    But instead I get accused of ulterior motives by you and get negged by Ravi.

    Not much grounds for agreement, huh.

    I don't believe anything the Western media says about Ahamadinejad they are still promoting the ridiculous lie that he said he wanted to wipe Israel off the map.
