…isn’t this kind of a weird story:

Iranian regime President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad lashed out at President Barack Obama for not closing down Gitmo as he had promised.

You know once there was a day when murderous despots had to make up promises broken by American presidents. It’s pretty odd when a guy like Ahmadinejad can say something like this and be accurate.

Of course, I approve of breaking this promise but it should never have been made. That is actually a bit of Lincoln in him to quote:

As to sustaining it, my promise is out, as before stated. But, as bad promises are better broken than kept, I shall treat this as a bad promise, and break it, whenever I shall be convinced that keeping it is adverse to the public interest.

In the words of the 10th doctor, the world is very strange.

April 4, 1865:

One black man, overcome by emotion, dropped to his knees, prompting the president to conduct a curbside colloquium on the meaning of emancipation. “Don’t kneel to me,” said the president. “That is not right. You must kneel to God only, and thank Him for the liberty you will enjoy hereafter.”

We would be happy if Obama could stay forever as the president of America,” Muammar al-Gaddafi

No Complaining now, otherwise you are an enemy of the revolution against equal pay for equal work.

Update: Michael Graham Nails it:

Seriously, my Lefty friends—do you not understand how CREEPY this is to normal people?

Yes they do, that’s guys like media matters are paid to fight back but don’t link the video.

It’s why the school is more outraged over the video than about the action.

Update: I see youtube has decided to hide it. I would remind people of this verse:

You have done this deed in secret, but I will bring it about in the presence of all Israel, and with the sun looking down. 2 Samuel 12:12

Wake up your Gods it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
