Obama: I’m Like Nixon, Reagan


obamaIn an interview with the New York Times, President Obama likened his approach to the historic deal limiting Iran’s nuclear program to Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon’s foreign policies.

“You know, I have a lot of differences with Ronald Reagan, but where I completely admire him was his recognition that if you were able to verify an agreement that [was negotiated] with the evil empire that was hellbent on our destruction and was a far greater existential threat to us than Iran will ever be,” then it would be worth doing, Obama said.

Similarly, he said he “had a lot of disagreements with Richard Nixon, but he understood there was the prospect, the possibility, that China could take a different path.”

The president also disagreed with the notion that world powers did not use all the leverage available to them in brokering the deal, calling that criticism “misguided.” Read more at the New York Times.

  1. Time to dust off this line: “Senator, you’re no Jack Kennedy” was a remark made during the 1988 United States vice-presidential debate by Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis’s vice-presidential running mate Senator Lloyd Bentsen to Republican vice-presidential candidate Senator Dan Quayle.

  2. This guy is a real מוסר ספר. It shows you what גאוה brings to!
    Also, it helps to better grasp the משנה in אבות that states, הקנאה… והגאוה מוציאין את האדם מן העולם.


  4. Per President Obama, the Soviet Union was”…a far greater existential threat to us than Iran will ever be”. True. But the Soviet Union was ruled by rational, albeit evil, people who were deterred by mutually assured destruction (MAD), while Iran is ruled by apocalyptic madmen who won’t necessarily be deterred by the possibility of their own destruction. Also, conveniently omitted by Obama is the fact that the existential threat to Israel from Iran is far greater than the U.S. faced even at the height of the cold war and the Cuban Missile Crisis.

  5. War noise.

    He is only impeachable like Nixon and jelly belly enabled like Reagan.

    This president is a boa constrictor for freedom.

    Now he wants credit for the work of the voice of liberty. He already put it in his shoe box.

    Ardened hate.

  6. Obama – u will NEVER be a REAGAN – HE WAS ONE OF “OUR” GREATEST PRESIDENTS OF THE “UNITED” STATES unlike you being the President of these “DIVIDED” States of what used to be America.

  7. One difference between Obama and Nixon/Reagan that comes to mind is that they loved the United States of America and had its best interests in mind, while our current president is only trying to weaken this country and ultimately destroy it. Otherwise, maybe they are similar…

  8. This bum is mamesh like Bilaam. He also wanted to live his life like a biheima and die like a Tzaddik. “I’m going to act like Carter and Chamberlain but die as Reagan”. I wholeheartedly agree with comment #2.
