I know this has already been said, but I cant help to share the truth of this irony, that Obama will negotiate with the Iranian President but refuses to do so with the House Leader? Very strange times we live in. It makes me long for the good ole' days of Clinton.

No more fighting. Apologize for interfering with their country and overthrowing a democratically elected ruler in the 1950s. Offer to remove all sanctions and reestablish relations if Iran can demonstrate there is no and will be no nuclear weapons program.

The President clearly understands the phrase "keep your friends close but your enemies closer".

The prospect of peace without having to send bombs or any troops on the ground, I like it!

"Obama will negotiate with the Iranian President but refuses to do so with the House Leader?"...Think he'd be talking to Rouhani if he were threatening the US economy?

This could go down as a Nixon in China type moment. Of course the Flat Earthers will come out and decry it as the end of western civilization.

Obama surrenders to Iran! Just like the movie "2016" said he would. These two are brothers-in-arms. They both hate America and the JOOOOs.

I fear Obama's negotiating skills will lead to nuclear arms for Iran with our full blessing. Hopefully Israel will be a party to any agreement.
