WILL US GUARANTEE THE LEGITIMACY OF THE IRANIAN REGIME?

It seems fairly basic to me that, if you are trying to open up a channel of communication with someone, you give them a hint that you're not out to destroy them.

Particularly when there's been so much noise in the last 2 years about either a direct U.S. attack, or a win-and-a-nod to Israel.

THOUGHTS ON OBAMA'S FIRST WEEK: THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY

Yep, it definitely looks as though Obama Derangement Syndrome (ODS) has set into certain minds.

The guy pulls a few gentle jokes to break the ice with someone upon whose skill he will be depending for safe flights, and the ODSers accuse of dissing the military!

He tells the Republican senators that minority status does NOT mean that they have the right to dictate what is meant by "governing from the middle" and the ODSers accuse him of arrogance.

My impression: He's done pretty well for less than a week in office. If things turn as well as this (of which there is no guarantee - but also no guarantee of failure), the ODSers will have more to churn about. Maybe they're just suffering from "Pre-Traumatic-Stress" syndrome already.

Republicans would do better to make constructive criticisms focused on improving the likelihood of success of the program, and not just impeding it to the extent of trying to make it fail. Because if it DOES fail, and Obama can pin the failure on Republicans tying together the shoelaces, the ODS victory will be pyrrhic. (Use the dictionary.)
