    I don't think it would be prudent for Obama to say anything just yet. The situation is volatile and if he says anything, it might cause more upheaval and risks the lives of the protestors.....

    Ahmadinejad would love for Obama to say something. He'd use it against the protesters and the US, blaming Obama for any resulting violence.

    Wrong. At the very least, Obama needs to call Iran out for harming innocent protesters.

    I agree that the Obama administration should say something strong about the murdering of protestors.

    Yet what McCain sad was great and him being a Senator he an get away with it. A president no matter who is is needs to keep a cooler head.

    Oh Obama replied finally..about half an hour ago.....no speech just a reply to a press question while talking with the Italian leader.

    President Obama on Protests in Iran: "It Would Be Wrong for Me to Be Silent" - Political Punch

    Wishy washy BS leaving the door open for him to appease Iran.


    Obama stance is simple..its the same one he has on everything---
    'How do I look and how do I keep my declared position in this..I don't care about anything else.'
    He is throwing away the US leadership position in the world.

    UK, France , and Germany have taken harder lines with Iran.......

    “We hope that the Ambassador will bring with him some explanations on the subject of events in Iran (and) respond to doubts being expressed on the regularity of the vote” said the French Foreign Ministry during a press conference published in part by Le Figaro.

    “France, like its European partners, is expecting clear answers to doubts expressed about the vote” it said, adding that “Paris condemns the numerous arrests, notably of political personalities, that have taken place since Saturday. France equally condemns the brutal repression of peaceful demonstrations and the repeated attempts to muzzle the press, expression and communication.”

    Obama said nothing like that..
    compared to France Obama was fawning over wordage that is clearly intended to excuse him when he goes appeasing Iran.

    I thought the 80's was running protesters over with tanks. The 70;s was shooting protesters.

    While I certainly think the elections were rigged, I do not see why McCain, as a public official, would assert publicly that the elections were corrupt and a fraud, without given any proof or reason to say so other than Iranian protests.

    Did he call Bush's first term a fraud?
