Hello, Leader of the Free World, Iran Calling!


"It is not productive, given the history of US-Iranian relations to be seen as meddling - the US president, meddling in Iranian elections," - Obama

As Iranians risk life and limb for the tiniest bit of democracy, Barak Obama The LEADER of the FREE World, worries about meddling. Why does Obama have so much trouble with being a salesman for Democracy? Here is a man who roused (hoodwinked) this nation with soaring rhetoric of Hope and Change, yet has nothing but puny words like "meddling" for the Iranian people. What a let down.

Obama has this crazy notion that the Mullahs are dealing with clean deck. Obama thinks that by sitting on the sidelines, he will be preserving his chances for engagement. He thinks that through engagement, he can persuade Iran from seeking nukes. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The Iranian elections were rigged from the get go. The Mullahs’ agenda is set…they want nukes! It makes no difference who actually wins that election, the Mullahs are still going for the nukes, that is their goal. However, the unrest growing in Iran, could actually change things. It has grown way beyond the results of that election and could actually topple the ruling clerics and thus offer a real possibility of engagement.

So come on Obama, drop the moral equivalence, fire up the teleprompter and give some soaring rhetoric of Hope and Change for people of Iran. Freedom loving people expect that from the Leader of the Free World.

EXACTLY. BHO has no spine, and zero credibility when it comes to statecraft. Iran has the most progressive population in the mid-east, more so than Iraq. Tehran is waaaay more cosmopolitan Baghdad; always has been always will be. Now, let's hope whoever replaces Pres. Wackmadinijob is truly a reformer (sort of like what happened in Russia with Putin -- the jerk -- poor Russia).

God bless those Persian Christians trying to keep their faith AND trying to find their franchise.

Why would Obama want to interfere with the machinations of like-minded tyrants?

He should speak up, but I'm not holding my breath.

I think Obama is playing the moral equivalence game and is completely missing an opportunity to really change Iran. For all his worries about meddling, they are accusing us of it anyway, so we might as well meddle and reap the possible rewards.

I am not holding my breath either. You are right, he does sound awful sympathetic to the clerics.
