(1) Why is anyone surprised at the latest Obama hypocrisy regarding Guantanamo?
(2) Why is anyone surprised at the Obama cowardice on Iran? Did everyone but Big Pink forget Barack Obama’s vote on Iran’s Revolutionary Guard? Actually that is a trick question because Obama was not present when the vote on declaring Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization was taken and Obama lied about it all.
(3) The New York Times and Charles Krauthammer of the Washington Post are stating that the Iranian revolution of 2009 is over. The Mullahs have won. Throughout the fight Obama was missing in action. Coward-in-chief Obama was either a deer in the headlights or a co-conspirator with the Iranian Mullahs.
(4) Obama Hopium addled apologists cry for Neda but continue to defend Obama’s protection of the Iranian Mullahs. These Hopium addled whine about Neda but then they quote Henry Kissinger who excused the Chinese government of the slaughter at Tiananmen.

(1) Yesterday was another Friday night, so another Friday night ugly Obama news dump. This latest “Obama Is The Third Bush Term” (as we called it on January 12, 2009) Friday horror was again about Guantanamo.
Obama administration officials, fearing a battle with Congress that could stall plans to close the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, are crafting language for an executive order that would reassert presidential authority to incarcerate terrorism suspects indefinitely, according to three senior government officials with knowledge of White House deliberations.
Such an order would embrace claims by former president George W. Bush that certain people can be detained without trial for long periods under the laws of war. Obama advisers are concerned that an order, which would bypass Congress, could place the president on weaker footing before the courts and anger key supporters, the officials said.
After months of internal debate over how to close the military facility in Cuba, White House officials are increasingly worried that reaching quick agreement with Congress on a new detention system may be impossible. Several officials said there is concern in the White House that the administration may not be able to close the prison by the president’s January deadline.
Prepare for the Hopium addled to defend Obama with foolish excuses. We are not surprised by any of this and gutted the soon to come Obama defenses before any of this officially occurred. Obama is the Third Bush Term and Obama and the Hopium eaters owe George W. Bush an apology:
Three months into the Justice Department’s reviews, several officials involved said they have found themselves agreeing with conclusions reached years earlier by the Bush administration: As many as 90 detainees cannot be charged or released.

(2) Why is anyone surprised at Obama’s continued cowardice on Iran? History is a teacher. Remember when we discussed this:
This week Senator Obama criticized Senator Clinton’s vote to designate the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization.
Senator Obama was silent on the measure when it was considered on the floor. Despite serving on the Foreign Affairs Committee, he wasn’t involved in Senate negotiations or discussions over the bill’s language. He didn’t speak out against it before it was voted on – he didn’t even return from the campaign trail to vote. He didn’t speak out against it at a nationally televised debate that night or defend himself from an attack during the debate on his missed vote. In fact, he waited more than nine hours after the vote was over to issue a statement about it.
If Senator Obama believed the measure was as dangerous as he says, wouldn’t he have had some obligation to stand up, speak out, and fight against it?
Obama falsely accused Hillary Clinton of helping then President George W. Bush in alleged plans to attack Iran. Even Obama enabler Illinois’ Senator Dick Durbin came to Hillary’s defense: “If I thought there was any way it could be used as a pretense to launch an invasion of Iran I would have voted no.”
An area where Obama plans to further challenge Clinton is on a recent Senate “Sense of the Senate” vote that the United States should designate the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization. She and Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, a close Obama ally, voted as part of a strong majority to pass the measure, while Obama skipped the vote to campaign in New Hampshire.
“This is one of the problems with running for president,” Obama said. “You can’t always anticipate which votes are which, but I put out a statement at the time stating that this was a bad idea and that I would have voted against it.”
Obama blamed scheduling for the missed vote.
“If you’re in New Hampshire, then it’s hard to get back,” he said.
Obama protected Iran’s Revolutionary Guard which is now attacking Iranians. Obama had many excuses for his protection of Iran’s terrorist Revolutionary Guard.
Hillary Clinton was right. Obama was wrong. So Obama lied about Hillary.
Now Americans see Hillary Clinton was right and Obama was wrong about Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. Obama had many excuses for pretending to want to vote “no” and even more excuses for not bothering to vote at all. Joe Biden killed Obama’s excuses.
Joe Biden killed Obama’s excuses for not voting but Big Media ignored this big story. Obama protected Iran’s Revolutionary Guard and Big Media protected Obama.
Senator Biden said “I wonder why he wasn’t there to vote,” Biden said. “We all knew that this vote was coming up.” Senator Biden said that because Obama has blamed scheduling for his, once again, missed vote. Readers of Big Pink know Obama has a long dodgy history of missed votes, of being in the room but not voting, of being in the room and instead of voting “yea” or “nay” voting with a schoolchild’s “present”.
Obama has been lying. Obama has been lying continuously.
YELLIN: While Hillary Clinton was voicing her support for it, Senator Obama was campaigning in New Hampshire. Obama’s campaign says he didn’t get enough notice to make it back to the Senate in time, though Clinton, Biden and Dodd voted.
In fact, since returning from the August recess, Senator Obama has missed the most votes of any of the Democratic presidential candidates, nearly 80 percent since September. The others don’t have great voting records either.[snip]
And I have an important point to make about that Iran amendment, which Obama has made such as important part of his campaign. Now, again, his campaign contends that Obama did not get enough notice to return to D.C. to make that vote, but two Democratic Senate sources tells CNN that all senators were advised the night before that the vote would come up the next day, and Senator Obama should have known that vote was coming.
It was a clear cut Obama lie, but Big Media ignored this big story. CNN asked the question once with Jessical Yellin’s excellent work but then decided to protect Obama instead of pursue this story. Big Media protected Barack Obama when Barack Obama protected Iran’s terrorist Revolutionary Guard.

(3) Why is anyone surprised about Obama’s Iran silence this year when he protected Iran’s Revolutionary Guard and smeared Hillary Clinton?
Charles Krauthammer declares the Mullahs have won because the revolutionaries don’t have a leader:
For all our sentimental belief in the ultimate triumph of those on the “right side of history,” nothing is inevitable. This second Iranian revolution is on the defensive, even in retreat. [snip]
As Mousavi hovers between Gorbachev and Yeltsin, between reformer and revolutionary, between figurehead and leader, the revolution hangs in the balance. The regime may neutralize him by arrest or even murder. It may buy him off with offers of safety and a sinecure. He may well prefer to let this cup pass from his lips.
But choose he must, and choose quickly. This is his moment and it is fading rapidly. Unless Mousavi rises to it, or another rises in his place, Iran’s democratic uprising will end not as Russia 1991, but as China 1989.
The New York Times ministers last rites to the revolution:
The direct confrontation over Iran’s presidential election was effectively silenced Friday when the main opposition leader said he would seek permits for any future protests, an influential cleric suggested that leaders of the demonstrations could be executed, and the council responsible for validating the election repeated its declaration that there were no major irregularities.
Obama protected the Mullahs. Big Media protected Obama.
* * * * *
Hopium addled addicts will continue to protect Obama on everything – even his shameless behavior on Iran. Hopium addled addicts will ignore history, particularly Obama’s history of voting “present” or not voting at all.
Hopium addled addicts secured their place in the annals of hypocrisy when they quoted Henry Kissinger and his support of Obama’s weakness on Iran. The Hopium addled will distort history due to their Clinton hate agenda and forget Kissinger’s support for the murders at Tiananmen Square.
Not surprisingly, Kissinger rushed to defend the Chinese regime after the Tiananmen Square massacre. Any government, he said, would have swept away such protestors from its square. Kissinger sees eye-to-eye with the Chinese. “I have generally questioned the wisdom of seeking by explicit pressures to compel societies with vastly different backgrounds to adopt, in a matter of years and at early stages of their political evolution, the same standards and procedures it took centuries to grow in the West,” concludes Kissinger. Well, yes. But is urging the Chinese government not to imprison dissidents tantamount to asking it to turn into a democracy overnight?

Big Media protected Barack Obama when he lied about his vote to declare Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization. Big Media protected Obama when he protected the Mullahs in Iran.
Obama is a coward that cannot be trusted by friend nor foe. Big Media will protect Obama from that truth too.
