Even as Ayatollah Khamenei blasted the United States for fomenting unrest in a defiant Friday prayer address in Tehran, President Obama has kept silent, focusing instead on domestic policy.
Obama spent more time with TV personality Stephen Colbert, taping a segment for a comedy show, than he did addressing the turmoil in Iran this week.
Newsmax has learned that the Obama administration also has zeroed out funding for pro-democracy programs inside Iran from the State Department budget for fiscal 2010, just as protests in Iran are ramping up.

“.. the Obama administration also has zeroed out funding for pro-democracy programs inside Iran...”
No surprise here. Obama is plainly not pro-democracy!
Oh how wonderful. The GOP should play that up.
From CBS-News, July 29, 2006:
Chavez Vows To 'Stand By Iran'
After Oil Talks In Tehran, Venezuelan Leader Called 'Brother' By Ahmedinejad
"Chavez pledged that his country would 'stay by Iran at any time and under any condition,' state television reported. Ahmadinejad said he saw in Chavez a kindred spirit." "'We do not have any limitation in cooperation,' Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying. 'Iran and Venezuela are next to each other and supporters of each other. Chavez is a source of a progressive and revolutionary current in South America and his stance in restricting imperialism is tangible.'":
Obama, Chavez shake hands at Americas Summit:
Russia's Medvedev hails "comrade" Obama

"Russia's Dmitry Medvedev hailed Barack Obama as "my new comrade" Thursday after their first face-to-face talks"

"Obama, Medvedev pledge new era of relations":
I shudder to think the way the MSM would have treated Presidents Reagan, Bush 41 and Bush 43 if this turmoil had been going on in Iran and they were taping a comedy news show.
The list, ping
The pro-demoratic forces there, along with all of Isreal, are on their own. God help them.
God bless Israel.
Obama and Hillary. Let’s give credit where it is due.
Obama is America’s first Third World president, much more than he is the first black president.
“Newsmax has learned that the Obama administration also has zeroed out funding for pro-democracy programs inside Iran from the State Department budget for fiscal 2010, just as protests in Iran are ramping up.”
OK. Anyone surprised by this little tidbit, raise your hand. The marxist-in-charge just killed thousands with the stroke of a pen. And, he doesn’t give a hoot for any of them.
It’s time to take back the country.
What a disgrace, gutless, Godless and classless.
GOP take notes... this is what you need to pound on.
