    Just another lie from a liar. There is no end to Obama's lies.

    While those negotiations now appear on the verge of a breakthrough the key condition for Iran—relief from crippling sanctions—began quietly and modestly five months ago.
    A review of Treasury Department notices reveals that the U.S. government has all but stopped the financial blacklisting of entities and people that help Iran evade international sanctions since the election of its president, Hassan Rouhani, in June.

    On Wednesday Obama said in an interview with NBC News the negotiations in Geneva “are not about easing sanctions.” “The negotiations taking place are about how Iran begins to meet its international obligations and provide assurances not just to us but to the entire world,” the president said.

    If I may suggest, if these words were coming from the mouth of GW Bush or good old Ronnie Reagan, you'd be singing a very different tune here. It's easy to sit at your computer and whine and whail about Obama. Its quite another thing to try to reach an agreement with a country in the middle east that will reduce the chance for war. You think it's easy? Then do something about it besides whine!

    You really aren't too bright are you? I am a man of principle, not a man of political party. Take your rationalizations and put them where the sun don't shine.

    Obama thinks protecting a broken law is more important than making sure Iran doesn't have nuclear weapons.

    Obama negotiated with Iran - hell he didn't negotiate with them, he gave them what they wanted with nothing in return - and did not negotiate with the Republican Party.

    Stop talking about Bush. This is Obama's time on the roaster. No more Bush.

    I was not aware that President Obama was obligated to "negotiate" with the GOP. Obama is commander in chief, and can call the shots in this matter.

    If you want to read the news, nothing has been agreed to yet, in fact talks have only started, and the only thing that has happened, is both sides said 'progress has been made", so let's not jump the gun here. OK
