    Re: U.S. House votes overwhelmingly for Iranian resolution



    oooh hes "very concerned"

    aka- "I have talks I want and this is annoying!"




    ...and that's a nice condensing of this-

    "I'm very concerned based on some of the tenor -- and tone of the statements that have been made -- that the government of Iran recognize that the world is watching," the president told CBS News. "And how they approach and deal with people who are, through peaceful means, trying to be heard will, I think, send a pretty clear signal to the international community about what Iran is and -- and is not."

    Silly puddy cannot stretch enough to make that appear meaningful.

    He's just pissed they took the time to do this. It's not really about how much it cost, it's about the fact that the House and Senate did "something" in support of the Iranian people. Nothing more than that.

    Don't fool yourself, they did nothing. This "resolution" is about as forceful as a vote in support of Christmas cheer. And yet Ron Paul still voted against it.

    At least he said something. Woefully inadequate in my opinion, but at least he put words to it.

    Well I realize this of course, hence the way I said "something." It doesn't matter what they did, he's criticizing them for doing anything.

    Why is Congress wasting its time on such nonsense. What's happening in Iran is none of our business. Ron Paul, as usual, did the correct thing.

    Whether or not Ahmedinejad stays in power is very much our business.
