What am I talking about? Namely, this report from The Hill:
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad should celebrate his birthday this week by freeing two imprisoned American hikers, the State Department said on Twitter Thursday.
"What a gift that would be," tweeted State Department spokesman Philip Crowley after wishing Ahmadinejad a happy birthday... "Your 54th year was full of lost opportunities... Hope in your 55th year you will open Iran to a different relationship with the world."
Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer, who were arrested while hiking along the Iraqi-Iranian border in July 2009, are imprisoned in Tehran.
This is so freaking pathetic my eyes are tearing up.
What has this country become under Barack Obama? Sending birthday wishes to dictators in the hope they'll release their hostages?
That's a rhetorical question.
Former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin couldn't believe it either.
Barack Obama is Jimmy Carter without the spine.
