Author and conservative political commentator Mark Steyn tore into President Obama Wednesday night for lacking the will or the skill to stop Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, and for his statement this week that under his administration the United States is the most respected country on earth.
“It’s very easy to win the Miss Congeniality award when you’re doing nothing,” Steyn said during an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity.”
“Once you reach the conclusion that Obama and the P5 – permanent members of the Security Council – are actually not going to do anything to stop you from getting a nuclear weapon, then you can join the talks and string along the talks because you know that Obama and these other fellows – John Kerry – they like chit chatting, they like shooting the breeze,” Steyn told host Sean Hannity.
“You can string them along for 18 months. And if you’re lucky, you’ll get an agreement, plus nuclear weapons.”
He added that Iran is actually within reach of getting all sanctions lifted, being reintegrated into the world community and becoming a nuclear power.
As for Obama’s remark about the U.S. being most respected, Steyn said that was more a “measure of American irrelevance in the world.”
“It’s pathetic for the leader of the global superpower to be boasting that he’s come No. 1 one in a Miss Congeniality poll,” he said. “I mean this, in itself, is incredible.
“I can’t recall Winston Churchill or Bismarck ever standing up and saying, ‘Hey, the world had a Miss World competition and I came first in the swimsuit round.’ It’s pathetic.”
Apologies to Churchill for mentioning his name in a sentence that includes Obama.
