Ahmadinejad Also Expects Obama to be More Flexible After the Election

Wonder if Obama wasn’t just passing along “Flexibility” mash notes to Vladimir, but maybe to dear old Mahmoud as well.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said talks over his country’s development of enriched uranium will be more productive after the U.S. election and expressed optimism the two sides will “be able to take some steps forward.”

Ahmadinejad, who is completing his second and last term as president, said meetings over Iran’s nuclear program with the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, plus Germany, will result in “a very important decision” following the U.S. November election.

It’s like he knows what’s coming. But surely Obama wouldn’t? He couldn’t? You might as well claim that he’ll get up at the UN and announce, “The future does not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam.”

But as Obama and every Democrats from senator to dogcatcher tells us, the way to stop Iran is with sanctions. It worked in North Korea. It worked in Iraq. It worked in Gaza. It’s bound to work in Iran.

Foreign investment in Iran jumped 83 percent to $6.8 billion in the first half of the current Iranian year, which began on March 20, the Tehran Times reported Sept. 27, citing Deputy Economy Minister Behrouz Alishiri.

Okay. Well I’m sure Obama knows what he’s doing. Just like in Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan and Ohio.
