Obama ‘Very Concerned’ by Khamenei Comments
Sindh Today ^ | June 20

Posted on 06/19/2009 5:50:23 PM PDT by nickcarraway

US President Barack Obama said he was concerned by Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s speech Friday that called for an end to protests over Iran’s disputed election and suggested a government crackdown could be coming.

“I’m very concerned based on some of the tenor and tone of the statements that have been made,” Obama said in an interview with CBS News. Iran should “recognise that the world is watching”.

“How they approach and deal with people who are, through peaceful means, trying to be heard will, I think, send a pretty clear signal to the international community about what Iran is … and is not,” Obama said.

Khamenei threw his weight behind re-elected President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, insisting no fraud had taken place in the June 12 election.

He also issued a stern warning that illegal demonstrations were not acceptable, and that the opposition would be held responsible for any outbreaks of violence.

of thousands of people have been protesting in support of opposition candidate Mir-Hossein Moussavi.

How nice of C-BS to edit out all the ums, uhs, ahs, ems, for him.

How benevolent of 0 to upgrade his status from concerned to “very” concerned. What’s next? Really super duper concerned?

Maybe he is imagining this within his “conversation with the Muslim World” gimmick pronounced at his Cairo speech.

It’s hilarious that the Iranians say that all this is an Obama plot. Hard to believe that the Iranians are even more clueless than the Democrats, but it seems true.

I think The Obamamoron is waiting to see how it plays out so he can use the same tactics on us here in the states.. When we start protesting, our tea parties.. He is just testing the waters for what he has in store for us.

And that cartoon says it ALL! What IS IT with wimpy democrats? I mean clinton did it, daschle did it all the time, biden does it, schummer couldn't even speak without the words 'deeply concerned' and ' troubling'

I AM SO SICK OF THESE GIRLS WITH THEIR SUBMISSIVE VOCABULARY ( oh gag me ):

CONCERNED

DEEPLY CONCERNED

TROUBLED

DEEPLY TROUBLED

What a GREAT BIG BUNCH OF MEALY MOUTHED GIRLISH COWARDS WHO ARE NOT UP TO THE TASK OF DEFENDING DEMOCRACY TO THE WORLD.

They are a bunch of kids who need a BIG SPANKING and a years worth of solid history teaching from a non-liberal.

Shame on um.

It’s the Liberal way... all about feelings.

Symbolism over substance.

Thanks for the much needed laugh. Who knew how right Hillary was during the campaign when she criticized his flowery speeches.

“tenor and tone”

We mustn't forget that one of the Left's primary objectives is perfect harmony when singing "Kumbaya".

Obviously, Obama is in tune with this priority...

You get the impressions, Shermy, that this situation caught the Obamawallahs slightly(!) off balance.

It seemed they were getting ready to deal with any winner of this election, I’m sure discreet contacts by third parties and even at diplo gatherings, like with the former administration had occurred.

Then the people of Iran and what seems to be a substantial portion of the political elite seem to have had a minor disagreement with the authorities...lol!

As the former British PM remarked what he feared most, his reply, Events, my dear boy, events!
