Two Presidents in One!

Compare and contrast, via Jim Geraghty's Morning Jolt:

President Obama, in September 2013 joint press conference with Bibi Netanyahu:

As President of the United States, I’ve said before and I will repeat that we take no options off the table, including military options, in terms of making sure that we do not have nuclear weapons in Iran ...
that would destabilize the region and potentially threaten the United States of America.

President Obama, this week:

I can, I think, demonstrate, not based on any hope but on facts and evidence and analysis, that the best way to prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapon is a verifiable, tough agreement. A military solution will not fix it. Even if the United States participates, it would temporarily slow down an Iranian nuclear program but it will not eliminate it.

Sure sounds like we’re taking it off the table!

The idea of two Obamas is, at this point in his reign, somewhat terrifying. I think it would be safe to say that we'd better off with zero or fewer presidents. Let our current leader take a turn at, say, head of Cuba or something.
