  56. Apparently not all the lefties need a gonad transplant.

    President Obama’s tepid response to the evidence the Iranian election was stolen from the people of that country by current president President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his thuggish allies is disappointing.

    The United States has no military role to play with regard to Iran. In fact, too many threats in the past have made it hard for the United States to speak effectively–and have raised fears that a strong statement from Washington would simply give Ahmadinejad an foreign “enemy” to rally against. But Obama must recognize that he is not George Bush. He has credibility that his predecessor lost, and the world wants to hear him speaking as the leader of a great country that stands on the side of democracy.
    The United States does not need to make threats to explicitly and unequivocally champion democracy and the right of peoples in countries around the world to advance the cause of their own freedom. Such championship requires truth-telling and blunt language. Unfortunately, Obama is avoiding hard truths and speaking far too softly.

    Goodnight.

  70. From any Lefty media site with nothing better to do but spin Obama’s silence into another brilliant ploy by The Chosen One:

    “President Obama contemplates his next move in the Iranian election crisis. Aides to the President made a point of noting for every reporter in the area that he was enjoying the cone with an unclenched fist.”

    Elliott (19e2c8)

  71. Mister Softee enjoying a Mister Softee.

    Official Internet Data Office (16e618)

  72. President Obama goofing for the press core in sing-song voice:
    “I got some ice-cream. I got some ice-cream, and now I’m gonna eat it. I’m gonna eat it. And Mousavi doesn’t get none. He doesn’t get none. He doesn’t get none. Because he’s going to be a mar-tyr. He’ll be a mar-tyr. Should have con-vert-ed to Christ-ian.”
    At this point Obama drops his ice cream.
    A hush falls over the ABC newscrew as they contemplate the tragedy.
    An aide breaks the silence, “Mr. President, there is a twitter message for you coming from Tehran. It’s Hossein Moussavi.”
    “What does it say?” asks the mighty O, still looking at his spoiled desert.
    “It says,” the aide looks fertively at the press, shrugs his shoulders and continues.
    “I quote, ‘You dropped your ice cream. You dropped your ice cream. Because you’re – the – great – big – satan. The great big satan. I smell the sulfer. Too hot to handle. It melts right in your ha – nd. Melts in your ha – nd.'”

    papertiger (894e4f)

  73. Oh, so we need to play stupid little tricks with photography, huh? I’m sure we all remember the photos of George Bush playing guitar and eating cake with John McCain while New Orleans was inundated. But oh yeah, those were black people, so it was okay. Since Obama didn’t sit inside his house weeping softly today pretty much proves he’s an indifferent, heartless tyrant, doesn’t it?

    Jason (863676)

  74. No, Jason, it doesn’t show Obama is heartless but it does show how clueless he is at foreign policy.

  80. “Obama is the press and the cone is his ass.”

    Habeus (edf0b7)

  81. Precisely what would you have the President do, exactly? Have our troops invade Iran? In case you haven’t noticed, our military is in the middle of fighting two wars that the President inherited from his predecessor. And I’m sure none of you criticized President Bush when he continued to read a book to schoolchildren when he was informed of the attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11/01.

    Don'tYouJustLoveSelf-Righteousness? (ee0955)

    Mitch (289579)

  90. none of you criticized President Bush when he continued to read a book to schoolchildren

    That’s right, only deranged moonbats like you criticized Bush for that, except you still don’t know–over 7 years later–that the book was being read to him.

    Official Internet Data Office (16e618)

  91. But ONE™ the world is waiting for you to step up and make some sort of comment on those brave Iranians in the streets.

    Dmac (f7884d)

  94. I haven’t posted in some time. I posted a few minutes ago and didn’t see the comment, so I did it again. Still no comment. I notice that this page lists 91 comments but the front page of the article shows 94 comments. Are posts now moderated before going live?

    PC14 (82e46c)

  95. PC14,

    It’s the software used during a big link. Comments are placed in a cache that has to be released. They’re not moderated or anything, it just keeps the site from going down during a traffic spike.

    Stashiu3 (ed6467)

  96. “Stupid Bush reading about a goat – he really should have gone for ice cream instead, the press loves that.”

    I also can’t help but be reminded of Soviet WW2 propaganda where they basically said “hey things aren’t bad in the Soviet Union, we have ice cream for all our people.”

    Patrick (d1311f)

  97. What did Marie Antoinette say?

    “Let them eat soft serve.”

    Alta Bob (9f2c33)
