Former Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki sees dim hopes for Barack Obama to win the next presidential election in the US, given the weak performance he and his administration have shown during his first term in office.
“There would be no chance for Obama (to win) if elections were held today,” Mottaki said on the sidelines of a press conference here in Tehran on Monday.
He added that based on results of the latest opinion polls, Obama enjoys the lowest public approval compared with other US presidents.
“He is entangled with the same problem that (former US President Jimmy) Carter was; Carter could not have good plans and thoughts for the different crises he encountered during his term either,” Mottaki stressed.
Last week, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad blasted the US administration for its deceitful policies, and warned that US President Barack Obama will have to face an end far more embarrassing than what his predecessor, George W. Bush, encountered.
