      Congrats on your Gold LL.

      The 5 Sunday shows would also rush to get Bibi, McCain, etc on to trash the agreement no doubt. They live for failure. But Our POTUS and his ADM keep moving FORWARD!

      When the going gets tough – PBO always delivers – What the media should be talking about is how much the US lost when they elected Bush for his second term. John Kerry delivers as SOS.

    OMG, after a wonderful crazy day in Montana, it was our Brawl of the Wild, 113th meeting of the University of Montana and Montana State Football teams. We won, UM. This is very big in Montana. The whole state watches. This year it was in Bozeman so we weren’t there. Just at an all day party at our son’s.

    I have tried to keep up on my Droid. The Geneva Talks are a BFD!!!!! I am almost in tears. We are so fortunate to be alive with this President.
    And I thank all you wonderful people here who have kept us informed and for twitter. This is so fantastic. I will be here till we know.

      I cannot imagine this being done by GW Bush – there is NO way he could have done it – he had not the skills, nor the people in his administration, nor the interest, nor the understanding – he had nothing.

          I understood your thoughts Nena :) Just wanted to highlight the difference between the two Presidents – not to mention the media – who thought the Bush administration had a brain. I am sadly thinking about “What might have been” if John Kerry had won in 2004. Would probably be 12 months into the 1st term for PBO.

      Exactly, Nena. No matter how great, how earthshaking, how momentous an accomplishment, if it’s done by President Obama, it’s unimportant in the eyes of our biased media. They are a sick joke. But we know and the world knows and right now that’s all that matters.

    “We have reached agreement between E3+3 and Iran,” Michael Mann, spokesperson for European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton announced on Twitter at 3AM.

    The press pool for US Secretary of State John Kerry a few minutes earlier departed for the Palais des Nations in anticipation of a signing ceremony there shortly.

    Good will always prevail over evil. Tonight, this was tangibly manifested in Geneva.

    May God abundantly bless those negotiators who opened their hearts and minds to let peace and goodness be their guiding star.

    And may God bless and prosper Chips and this extraordinary (favourite adjective of PBO) obamadiary family. You are just amazing. Thank you for your determination to reveal the truth to the world.

    A tweet was posted on an earlier thread that said everyone in Tehran was intently watching these negotiations even though it’s now 6 am (meaning the nation is pulling an all-nighter).

    I sent my congrats to this chap who commented on one of @LRozen’s tweets yesterday.

    Glad to have tuned out the MSM, who will spin this as another failure, just like Syria/Russia was a debacle in their wee minds in Aug/Sept.

      Yes, as a poke in the eye to the GOP. But for me this seems bigger in that it is going to immediately affect a whole population of a country that has lived in the shadows of the world because of their own leadership as well as paying for the sins of hostage takers generations ago.

    • November 23, 2013 at 9:47 pm

      Yes, but joyous, not vindictive (said this upthread too).

      Back then I followed alot of MSM who were clueless and basically a clusterf***.

      And PBO’s statement is happening about the same time, right? Except on Saturday, not Sunday night.

So proud of SOS Kerry and the president, and all the negotiators…..Wow!
    The fact that the U.S.Press is not there…..unbelievable! Pelley, Sawyer, Williams…..they ALL should be in Geneva!
