Obama interview with Vice News calls the move "unprecedented"
They released this short clip today

"I'm embarrassed for them," the president says in a preview clip released Friday for an upcoming interview with Vice News. "For them to address a letter to the ayatollah ... who they claim is our mortal enemy, and their basic argument to them is, 'Don't deal with our president because you can't trust him to follow through on an agreement.' That's close to unprecedented."

But wait. Wasn't talking to your enemies a good thing just a few years ago?

Didn't Barack Obama say, "the notion that not talking to countries is punishment to them is ridiculous"
