A couple of weeks ago after Obama’s Cairo speech flush with apologies for America and coddling of the radical Muslim world, Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) indcated he didn’t know which side Obama is on.
This time it is Iran’s mullah thugocracy and violent suppression of Iran’s people vs. Freedom/Democracy/rights of Iranian people.
And this time it is John McCain (R-AZ) that has insinuated which side Obama really SEEMS to be on. From Gateway Pundit:
The Huffington Post interviewed Senator McCain today:
McCain wouldn’t say which side of the struggle he thought Obama was on.
“Between Ahmadinejad and the reformers, do you think there’s any doubt what side President Obama is on?” McCain (R-Ariz.) was asked by the Huffington Post. “What would be the advantage…?”
“I know what side I’m on,” McCain cut in. “I’m on the side of the people. I’m not on Ahmadinejad’s side or Mousavi. I’m on the side of the Iranian people and I’m on the right side of history. And I’m not going to walk on the other side of the street while people are being killed and beaten in the streets of Iran.”
McCain said Obama’s reaction wasn’t equal to the situation. “We can’t sit by and watch a film clip on television of a young woman bleeding to death and say that we’re worried about the Iranian reaction or our ability to negotiate with them. We have to stand up for those people,” he said.
I’ve been on vacation, but there has been much news made about Obama’s decision to vote “present” on this whole situation until he was forced to make a (slightly) stronger comment against the Iranian regime….Obama’s waiting to see if “Iran chooses a path that abides by international norms and principles.”
These folks and their friends and families would be the first to let Obama know that a path has been chosen by the Iranian regime and it is does not include any “international norms and principles”—

Martyr and symbol of the uprising against the regime and for freedom, Neda Agha Soltan:
I agree with McCain….
If Obama can not see what is happening and CLEARLY AND CONCISELY condemn the suppression of freedom and murder of Iranian people by its dictatorship government AND STAND UP FOR FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY—- then it appears that Obama stands somewhere near the side of the mullah dictatorship and supports murder of Iranian citizens, or at the very least, he does not believe strongly enough (or at all) in freedom that he cares to speak up for it when and wherever he can.
Of course, as the Leftists will argue, no one is asking Obama to invade of bomb Iran…just to clearly condemn the regime and stand up strongly for freedom. You know, stop offering weinie roasts to Iranian leadership and give up the idea that talking, or writing letters, to these people really does much of anything but feed into Obama’s fantasy of his Messianic touch.
That fact that Obama has not clearly condemned the regime nor strongly stood for freedom in the Iran tragedy…should worry us all here at home.
