From Informed Comment, the best continuing source of information about Iraq and Iran:
" Obama pwns Bush-Cheney on Iran
For 8 years, Bush-Cheney practiced what I call "belligerent Ostrichism" toward Iran. They refused to talk to Tehran. They wanted to ratchet up sanctions on it. Bush sent 2 aircraft carriers to the Gulf to menace Iran. Bush's spokesmen professed themselves afraid of Iran's unarmed little speedboats in the Gulf. Aside from issuing threats to attack and destroy Iran the way they did Iraq, Bush-Cheney had nothing else to say on the matter. During the 8 years, Iran went from being able to enrich to .2% to being able to enrich to 3.8%, and increased its stock of centrifuges significantly. Bush-Cheney gesticulated and grimaced and fainted away at the horror of it all, but they accomplished diddly-squat.
Barack Obama pwned Bush-Cheney in one day, and got more concessions from Iran in 7 1/2 hours than the former administration got in 8 years of saber-rattling."
Well there you go. Remember when these people liked to call themselves "the adults?" I guess that's what little kids do when they dress up in mommy's clothes.
In other news, the right wing world is having a party mocking Obama, because French president Sarkosy criticized him. This is apparently a massive humiliation for Obama.
Remember when France, Germany and just about every other nation on earth, with the exception of poodle-boy Tony Blair were criticizing our last president? Not such a big deal then.
