ANALYSIS/OPINION:

In the late 1950s there was a slogan that reminds me of what is taking place between Iran and the Obama administration: “Better red than dead.” It was coined as the United States was put on its heels by the Russians in talks to reduce nuclear weapons. We were reducing testing while Russia continued to test and develop more nuclear weapons.

In the case of talks with Iran, the slogan could be “Better a legacy than an enemy.” What President Obama wants is an agreement and any ol’ agreement will do to satisfy his lust for a legacy. Anyone who has common sense knows that Iran will not allow spot inspections of its nuclear facilities; it never has. But this administration ignores history, as it has on so many other occasions, and ignorance will be Mr. Obama’s legacy.
