Nobody likes a buttinsky, so our President is doing his best to avoid "meddling" in any situation which doesn't increase his personal power. Plus, after just excusing a Black Panther for intimidating white voters with a nightstick, he doesn't want to look like a hypocrite just because a few Iranian voters get beaten. Or worse.
This week, Barack Obama made a speech (following his Brazilian vacation) explaining that he committed the U.S. military to operations in Libya because America is a beacon of freedom, a light of hope, and a friend to all who battle in liberty's name. In fact, it was such a rousing speech that it would be easy to almost forget that this is the same man who sat around with a thumb up his ass when faced with a similar (but vastly more important) scenario in Iran almost two years ago.
Without American support...or even encouragement...the protestors in Iran soon lost their bloody struggle. And today, Iran continues to be one of the most dangerous countries in the world.
But who knows - maybe this new and improved, guns a-blazin', freedom loving, manly man of an alleged president will kick Iran's butt next time he gets a chance!
As long as it isn't, you know, "meddling."
