Iran has some fun at the expense of the U.S.

The United States was more than a bit embarrassed when it lost an RQ-170 Sentinel stealth drone over Iran. Although the U.S. government initially claimed that the aircraft malfunctioned and was missing "somewhere near Afghanistan", Iran boldly claimed that it spoofed the Sentinel's GPS feed causing the drone to "think" it was landing at an airbase in Afghanistan instead of its actual landing spot -- an Iranian military base.
In a surprise move, President Barack Obama engaged Iran during a press conferencing, stating, "We've asked for it back. We'll see how the Iranians respond."
Iran is now humorously responding to President Obama's request in toy form. “He said he wanted it back, and we will send him one,” joked Reza Kioumarsi of the Ayeh Art Group, which is responsible for the production of the 1/80 scale toy that sells for the equivalent of $4 USD.


Iranian officials are quick to point out that unlike most toys sold in the U.S., these won't be made in China. They'll be produced in Iran using Iranian plastic. The toy replicas will come in a number of different colors and will feature a clear plastic stand with the inscription: "We will put America under our feet.”
To add insult to injury, the Ayeh Art Group is said to have reserved a pink replica to send directly to President Obama.

"I really don't know where you get this stuff".

See all of the points above that you ignored.

March ’07 > March ’11
Unemployment Rate - 4.40% > 8.80%
Gas price (per gallon) - $2.56 > $3.60
National Debt - 8.84 trillion > 14.27 trillion
Monthly deficit - 95 billion > 189 billion
Median House Price - $262,600 > $202,100
S&P 500 Index - 1420.86 > 1332.31
Employment-Population Ratio - 63.3% > 58.5%
Consumer Price Index - 205.532 > 221.309

What are you trying to prove? How bad it is now? Yes, it is bad, not a "Depression" but of course, people are hurting. Do you seriously think the economy works that fast that Obama affected it??? We are still dealing with things that Reagen, Bush, Clinton and Bush2 did (good and bad). You act as if your perfect candidate (lets just say an ideal perfect conservative) could have taken the reigns in Jan 2009 and stopped the umpteen trillion dollar housing crash. Dood, you cant possibly not see that Obama didn't cause this mess. The making of this mess precedes him by years. Not months, YEARS, and not just 1 or 2 years. Several years. The bad thing Obama and the dems did on this, was the stimulus - 1.2 trillion or whatever. You cant possibly imagine that the current deficit is up PRIMARILY because tax revenue is down because too many people are out of work and under employed and that all started WAY before anything Obama did could have taken effect. No, its all the lefts fault, even though they have barely had time to do anything. It just doesn't work that fast. years from now, we will be feeling the effects of Obama and the current congresses actions, and I believe it wont be great... But you? You are so blindly trying to blame the left that you cant see straight. You have lost all sense of perspective and just blindly blame without any logic at all. You are starting to sound too much like Glen Beck for me.

WOW you have pulled a total 180. You DIRECTLY said that you believed Obama made it worst. You said that. Now I'm "Glenn Beck" and we get this....

Do you seriously think the economy works that fast that Obama affected it???

What kind of flip flopping act is that man? You have no backbone or integrity. You can't even stand by the things you said 24 hours ago.

You've lost all credibility when you completely balk on something that came out of your own mouth, and then resort to making personal attacks on me. What's happened to you? Your entire sentence structure is even falling apart. Run on sentences, bad punctuation. Hell you're not even using paragraphs anymore. Have you been drinking? It's like you're not even the same guy you were yesterday.

No I'm not drunk. I was in a super hurry trying to leave work. There is no flip flopping. I think what Obama did will make matters worse, but he didnt cause it, it all happened long before he came and we are now seeing the results. What is so hard to grasp about that? Freegin economics 101. I have been saying it over and over.

Nice avoidance of the issues though. I would just paste exactly the same thing I pasted in the last comment, but you'll just avoid that as well. I think my arguments are sound here and you have no answer.

dont put me where you think I am... I am no apologist, I dont give a rats arse about Obama... I dont give a crap about Hitler either , but I dont blame him for world war 1. WW2, sure, but not 1. I am calling you out on your blind one sidedness and again, you avoid the issues. You keep saying nothing to the points I owned you with.

"I specifically said it's not his fault."

OK, we agree on that.... Now. In Jan 2009 when Obama took office the economy was in a freefall. The Rep's had the oval office for 20 of the previous 28 years and they had control of Congress for 14 of the previous 16 years. You cannot possibly blame everything on the Dems, when the Reps have had the huge majority of control in the modern era.

What can the paragraph above mean then? Why did the economy tank and who was in charge when it tanked? Go ahead, I know you know, but you really need to say it. Not for me, but for your own self you need to say it.

"If you're hung up on my use of "depression" for dramatic effect"

No, I am hung up on your always blaming everything that is wrong in this country on the left when the left hasnt been in charge hardly at all in recent history. Somehow the reps have had all the power and all the control, yet nothing is their fault. How can that be?

"If you can find a PS3 anywhere in North America that's been on shelves for more than five minutes, I'll give you 1,200 bucks for it." -- SCEA President Jack Tretton
