You're Iran. You take hostages. It's what you do.

By John Ruberry

Unless you live out­side Amer­ica, you’ve seen the GEICO insur­ance tele­vi­sion com­mer­cials with the tag line, “It’s what you do.” Such as this one about golf com­men­ta­tors whis­per­ing regard­less of the situation.

Shortly before the Obama admin­is­tra­tion released over $100 bil­lion in frozen assets to Iran, the mul­lahs released five Amer­i­cans held there on trumped up charges.

Can you say “quid pro quo?” Can you say “hostages?”

Also part of the the hostage exchange was the release of seven Ira­ni­ans who were impris­oned for vio­lat­ing our trade embargo with the theocracy.

Empow­er­ing Iran with sanc­tions relief is like Neville Cham­ber­lain writ­ing a $150 bil­lion check to Adolf Hitler before WWII hop­ing he’ll behave,” Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Mike Huck­abee said shortly after the swap news became pub­lic. “This Iran deal is an insane dis­as­ter and this White House has lost its mind.”

I’m not so sure the White House lost its mind. Pres­i­dent Obama and his oval office syco­phants are left­ists who believe Amer­ica is too strong and it needs to be put in its place. That explains why on the day of his final State of the Union address Pres­i­dent Obama not only didn’t men­tion the cap­ture and video humil­i­a­tion of ten US sailors by Iran in the Per­sian Gulf, but also his fail­ure to con­demn it at all.

And to drive the point home, Obama’s poltroon sec­re­tary of state, John Kerry, thanked Iran for releas­ing the sailors that they shouldn’t have seized.

Our pol­icy with Iran should be régime change. Then maybe Iran can drop their pas­time of hostage taking.

Unless you live outside America, you’ve seen the GEICO insurance television commercials with the tag line, “It’s what you do.” Such as this one about golf commentators whispering regardless of the situation.

Shortly before the Obama administration released over $100 billion in frozen assets to Iran, the mullahs released five Americans held there on trumped up charges.

Can you say “quid pro quo?” Can you say “hostages?”

Also part of the the hostage exchange was the release of seven Iranians who were imprisoned for violating our trade embargo with the theocracy.

“Empowering Iran with sanctions relief is like Neville Chamberlain writing a $150 billion check to Adolf Hitler before WWII hoping he’ll behave,” Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said shortly after the swap news became public. “This Iran deal is an insane disaster and this White House has lost its mind.”

I’m not so sure the White House lost its mind. President Obama and his oval office sycophants are leftists who believe America is too strong and it needs to be put in its place. That explains why on the day of his final State of the Union address President Obama not only didn’t mention the capture and video humiliation of ten US sailors by Iran in the Persian Gulf, but also his failure to condemn it at all.
