Obama Gets Tough on Iran by "Not Meddling"
Tough on his critics that is and tough on defending his "hands-off" policy on the subject of freedom and democracy saying...
"The Iranian people are trying to have a debate about their future."
Some in the Iranian government are trying to avoid that debate by accusing the United States and others outside of Iran of instigating protests over the elections. These accusations are patently false and absurd.
Do the images coming out of Iran look anything like a "debate" to you? It looks to me like a one-sided ass kicking by a brutal fascist government on its citizens. The inexperienced semi-socialist President seems more concerned about how He appears in all of this, than He is concerned for the Iranian people or concerned for freedom and democracy.
"I have made it clear that the United States respects the sovereignty of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and is not at all interfering in Iran’s affairs."
When asked by Fox News Major Garrett why he (the President) has not spoken out sooner on the Iranian issue, the man claiming to be the leader of the free world said...
"My role has been to say the United States is not going to be a foil for the Iranian government to try to blame what’s happening on the streets of Tehran on the CIA or on the White House, that this is an issue that is led by and given voice to the frustrations of the Iranian people".
Meanwhile in other news...

So... how is that whole "not meddling" anti-foil thing working out for you Mr President?
