    Re: Obama refuses to 'meddle' in Iran

    No Mr. Obama is sending the wrong message as usual he shoul dbe up front and saying that the election wasa faurd and that the People of Iran have the full United States Support and he calls on the Mullahs to set aside the election and free all who have been arrested. If not then the United State will start looking at putting real pressure on Iran by placing them back on the State Spouncer Terrorist List put pressure on their friends IE China/Russian/Middle East Countrys to either back the US on this or face the fact we will hold these Countries accountable by placing restriction on Trade and Travel.

    Re: Obama refuses to 'meddle' in Iran

    I know our neocon friends would really LOVE to BOMB someone, but since EVERY Foreign Policy EXPERT ON THE SUBJECT has CLEARLY stated that Obama's tact on the situation is the RIGHT one, I'm hoping we'll just let the GROWNUPS decide what to do this time.
    When you can't win an election outside of the south or mountain west, the answer to your problems is NOT "more of the same, but LOUDER!!!"

    Wow JovialOne-

    Question are you that Bitter over Mr. Bush huh because the discussion in this thread is about how Mr. Obama hasn't done the correct thing by taking a far more public stance against the fraud that is happing in Iran.

    Oh and not allow so-called Foreign Policy Experts are saying he is doing the correct thing

    But then again what do you expect from a President who Bow's to the Saudi King huh.

    "yea, though I walk through the the valley of the shadow of death. I shall fear no evil, for thou art with me."

    Obama is not with you..and sadly that means the USA is not with you.

    Go home Iranians before you suffer and become nothing but a boost in ratings for news outlets....or worse nothing more then a "speech"

    Stop making ridiculous claims.

    “Up until now, the president had very thoughtfully calibrated his remarks on Iran, but this was an uncharacteristic and egregious error,” said Karim Sadjadpour, an Iran expert with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. “People are risking their lives and being slaughtered in the streets because they want fundamental change in the way Iran is governed. Our message to them shouldn’t be that it doesn’t make much difference to the United States.”

    More than from the President who KISSED and HELD HANDS with him, I guess...





    And now... name a RESPECTED foreign policy expert who says we should be doing anything differently than Obama is doing.

    Re: Obama refuses to 'meddle' in Iran

    WASHINGTON — As tens of thousands of Iranian protesters take to the streets in defiance of the government in Tehran, officials in Washington are debating whether President Obama’s response to Iran’s disputed election has been too muted.

    Mr. Obama is coming under increased pressure from Republicans and other conservatives who say he should take a more visible stance in support of the protesters.

    Even while supporting the president’s approach, senior members of the administration, including Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, would like to strike a stronger tone in support of the protesters, administration officials said.

    Some murmurs of dissention within the administration about Obamas muted response.

    It doesn't even occur to you that if we did that, the issue would be the US, not the fraud. This is exactly the kind of bonehead mistake Bush would have made. The last thing we need is to become The Great Satan again, but advice like this would certainly cause that to happen.
