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.

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?
