This week Obama has been in Hawaii trying to convince Russia and China to back stronger sanctions against Iran to quell it’s escalating nuclear program. Russia and China are not interested. Remember March 2010 when Valerie Jarrett said “Iran will back down,” and she cited the strong ties we have with our allies who will back the U.S. insistence of “backing down,” whatever that means? The leader of the Free World has no clout.
Jarrett’s remarks come at 1:21-in. There is no follow-up question.
