Iranian mullacrats and Obama agree to one-on-one talks. Gee, Batchelor was right again. [yawn] How boring, always to be right. (UPDATED 2X(

UPDATE 7:57 PM EDT
Uh oh. Valerie Jarrett chasing NYT editorial board with her taser gun.
White House denies report that US, Iran agreed to hold one-on-one talks about nuclear program
See, this is why so many daytime TV soap operas went out of business here in the USA.  Who needs soaps with this crew in the White House?  Now I promise to go find the Times report that started the ruckus.
UPDATE 8:10 PM EDT
Here is the New York Times report, which mentions the denial by the White House.  The escape hatch for Obama seems to be that his administration has agreed only "in principle" to hold the talks; Tehran, for its part, says it wants to wait until it sees who wins the U.S. presidential elections before it's willing to go ahead with the talks.....
**************************
"Tehran does not fear the US, because POTUS Obama has worked since 2009 to sign a peace deal with the Supreme Leader that will resemble appeasement.  The Grand Bargain calls for the US to permit the Iranian nuclear enrichment program as a non-military enterprise in exchange for Iran promising to work in the region as a source of stability.  It is a decidedly one-sided deal brokered by the hard-trading Bazaar-keepers of Tehran.  POTUS Obama has traded away the US relationship to Iraq, to Afghanistan, to Israel, in the hope of getting the deal done during the Election cycle of 2012."
-- John Batchelor, October 19

Batchelor has been warning for years that Barry is trying for a grand bargain with Iran in the manner of Nixon's grand bargain with China.  The New York Times reported about two hours ago that Iran's government and USG had agreed to one-on-one talks. While I'm finding the link and reading the report, here's Batchelor's October 18 report for Larry Kudlow's audience, plus his October 19 write-up on the terrorism threat that Americans face now from al Qaeda, and on the grand bargain. 

 
    Grand Bargain

 October 19, 2012  
 Spoke to Larry Kudlow on his CNBC Kudlow Report in re the taunting by Iran President  Ahmadinejad ... that the US is a second-rate power with a grotesque debt load.  Larry Kudlow asked if the US is under threat of terror attack on our financial foundations, and the answer is yes.  
 More generally, Tehran does not fear the US, because POTUS Obama has worked since 2009 to sign a peace deal with the Supreme Leader that will resemble appeasement. The Grand Bargain calls for the US to permit the Iranian nuclear enrichment program as a non-military enterprise in exchange for Iran promising to work in the region as a source of stability. It is a decidedly one-sided deal brokered by the hard-trading Bazaar-keepers of Tehran. POTUS Obama has traded away the US relationship to Iraq, to Afghanistan, to Israel, in the hope of getting the deal done during the Election cycle of 2012. The fresh turn is that POTUS is now said to be convinced that, in the event of his defeat, he can still close the deal with the Supreme Leader during the Lame Duck session of Congress. The POTUS thinking, inspired by Valerie Jarrett, is that the Obama administration's troubled first term will be offset by the success of Obama as a peacemaker just as Richard Nixon's disastrous second term was eventually offset by Richard Nixon's peacemaking with China before and after his resignation. As for the terror attacks on US, yes, they are most likely from lone wolf agents like a sad sack who thought he could bomb the Federal Reserve in Manhattan.   Far more damaging to US worth is the retreat from the confrontation with the Devils in the Middle East.  The present path to the Grand Bargain leads to darkness visible.
