Obama throws his Iran deadline under the bus

Remember when Iran had until the end of 2009 to come to an agreement with the West over its nuclear program or 'crippling sanctions' would be imposed? Well, the end of 2009 has come and gone, and President Obumbler would like you to forget that there ever was a deadline.
In other words, the Iranians have called Obama’s bluff and discovered, to no one’s particular surprise, that he won’t back up his tough rhetoric with any real action. We are no closer to the sort of tough sanctions that would bring Iran’s economy to its knees and its leaders to heel than we were a year ago before Obama’s international charm and apology offensive began. And there is no reason to believe that either Obama or Clinton have a clue about how to alter this disturbing situation. Their feckless devotion to diplomacy for its own sake has resulted in a stronger position for Iran’s extremist leaders, who must be now congratulating themselves on their ability to defy America with impunity. The clock continues to tick down to the moment when an Iranian bomb becomes a reality and the only thing the Obama administration seems capable of doing in response to this frightening development is to continue to spin their failures and redefine a new era of Western appeasement.
Indeed. Read the whole thing.

The Iranians know the Americans are not serious about pressuring or punishing any one. They speak loudly but carry a small stick. No one in the Middle East is much impressed by the American superpower.
