White House Weenie 'Seriously Reconsidering' July 4th Hot Dog Party With Iranians

They're giving it serious consideration. You'd think the fact people are being murdered in the streets might lead to a bit more than serious consideration, but hey, Obama's got to figure out how to have it both ways before he makes a decision.
The Obama administration is seriously considering not extending invitations to Iranian diplomats for July 4 celebrations overseas, senior administration officials tell CNN.

The officials said intense discussions on the issue were taking place, but the final decision had not been made.

Late last month the State Department sent a cable to its embassies and consulates worldwide informing them they “may invite representatives from the government of Iran” to their July 4th celebrations.

The U.S. receptions marking Independence Day usually feature symbols of Americana, such as hot dogs, red-white-and-blue decorations and remarks by U.S. officials about America’s founding fathers.

The Obama administration had decided to invite Iranians to the celebrations at overseas posts as part of President Obama’s policy of engaging the Iranian regime.

As part of that engagement Obama videotaped a message for the Iranian people on the Persian New year and U.S. officials have engaged members of the Iranian government.
Rush Limbaugh suggested today the best way to wriggle out of this one would be to announce they're serving Hebrew National hot dogs.

Update: It appears the Iranians may be giving the Simpleton-in-Chief an easy way out.
US State Department spokesman Ian Kelly said Wednesday he does not believe that one single Iranian diplomat has accepted invitations to July 4 events at US embassies worldwide.
So much for his outreach to our enemies.

Update: After serious consideration, the Idiot-in-Chief figured out this might not be a good idea.
