Obama Sends Letter to Iran/Raygun Sent Weapons



Among the many unintended—and disastrous—consequences of President Bush's war in Iraq was to replace the Sunni dictator in Baghdad with a sectarian Shiite government whose closest ally was naturally Iran. So, it was only common sense that President Obama would send a letter to the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in Tehran regarding the ISIS threat that both U.S. and Iranian forces were already combatting in Iraq. Needless to say, Republicans are apoplectic. As Sarah Palin put it in her latest jihad against the English language, President Obama's letter shows he is "willing to negotiate with terrorists" and was "an anti-Reagan move."

Here's a newsflash for Sarah Palin, John McCain, Mitt Romney and their ilk. Barack Obama only sent Iran a letter. Ronald Reagan sent a cake, a Bible and U.S. weapons.

Another example of why rethugs cause me to spew.

1. Interestingly, he sent weapons with the cake


Two "western-style' six-shooter revolvers.

The Iranians returned the guns, but not the cake.
