The M.Joseph Sheppard Post Report 05/22/15: Obama Admits Iran May Get The Bomb/

PRESIDENT OBAMA ADMITS THE POSSIBILITY OF IRAN HAVING NUCLEAR WEAPONS

Look, 20 years from now, I'm still going to be around, God willing. If Iran has a nuclear weapon, it's my name on this"

So with all the posturing and verbal guarantees that the Iran nuclear deal the Obama administration put in place would ensure Iran could not develop an atomic bomb President Obama's own words make it clear the possibility does exist "within 20 years."

Of course that hinges on the definition of what "if" is.

The above sentence makes Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu's caution and anxiety, over the possibility of Iran having  a weapons program following on from the nuclear energy projects getting the go ahead, both prescient and absolutely valid. Clearly too these anxieties were also felt by the Israeli electorate. 

For Israel, and the civilized world, the protection against the "20 year possibility" hinges on the Republican senate blocking ratification  of the Obama administrations Iran deal until President Obama leaves office. 

Hopefully either the election of a Republican president in 2016, or the GOP holding a senate/House majority after that election, will see an end to the whole scheme. Ideally the House will reject it out of hand

RAMADI A SET BACK "BUT WE ARE NOT LOSING"


And in Iraq; "President Obama says that while the loss of Ramadi to the self-declared Islamic State is a "setback," he doesn't think the U.S. is losing to the militant group.

"No, I don't think we're losing, and I just talked to our CENTCOM commanders and the folks on the ground,"

Change Obama for LBJ, and Vietnam for Ramadi, and the same tragic end-game works especially the being reassured by "the folks on the ground"

But the ever dependable, New York Times has his back

"Calm Down. ISIS Isn’t Winning.There is even a silver lining in the fall of Ramadi"

BECAUSE WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG
"Robert M Gates, the president of the Boy Scouts of America and former secretary of defense, called on Thursday to end the Scouts’ blanket ban on gay adult leaders."

HARD HITTING JOURNALIST (NO NOT REALLY)
HITS CHRISTIE-MISSES REAL STORY

The Daily Beast's Olivia Nuzzi who seems intent on carving out a career as a hard hitting ballsy take no prisoners etc etc leftist journalist, gets really really stuck into Governor Christie which she has made a sub-career doing.

Sadly, as with so many in this niche, she overdoes the hyperbole in a frantic, repetitive and juvenile style-it's really appalling writing. If you can bear the blather it's at the link above.


There seems little point in hammering Christie at this stage from the left as his chances of getting the GOP nomination are about zero, thus Nuzzi's article seems more of a "look at me can't you see how clever I am at kicking yesterday's man whilst he's down."


The real back story with Christie lies with the utter lack of judgement and frankly vindictiveness of the Romney team in 2012. 


They blocked Governor Palin (whom Nuzzi has a real hate for BTW) from speaking at the GOP convention and made Christie the keynote speaker.

And where did that get Romney and Christie?

I set all this out at 'The Camp of the Saints'

" Will The GOP Make The Same Foolish Mistake About Palin?"
