    That is pretty funny.

    I think it'd be a riot to see Bush and the pres of Iran trying to talk to each other without looking like idiots.

    Typical Liberal response. Somebody gives you what you want and you smash them in the face for it. Good job!

    I think one fair reading of the development is:

    1) there is some sincerity in wishing to avoid armed conflict with Iran.

    2) a recognition that the 6 party talks with North Korea yielded some beneficial results. Thus, a similar 6 party negotiation here could yield better results than the diplomacy that has taken place thus far.

    3) if you will recall during the 6 party North Korean talks, the US refused to have two party talks with North Korea, I expect that will be the case with Iran.

    4) nothing else has worked, at least if this fails, and if war eventually occurs, there would not be much left in the diplomatic bag unlike the insincere effort in the run-up to war with Iraq.

    You mean like what the right did with FISA or what they did when Obama said he'd rely on the generals on the ground to help him formulate Iraq policy?


    Given the past 7 plus years, I'd discount anything from this white house as being "sincere".

    The only recognition is that they need to follow Obama's lead on these issues because this admin has made the repubs look stupid.

    On the other hand, they've really hurt McCain. I wonder why they'd do that?

    Could it be that Baby Bush is trying to salvage something to keep him from being called the worst president ever?

    Bush has changed his postion on global warming, negotiating with North Korea, and now negotiating with Iran. Maybe he has learned something.

    My favorite Bush moment was when they asked him what he had learned from his first term in office and he said, "Words have consequences."

    Duh!
