Obama is in a dilema of his own anti-traditional American making.
George Bush's legacy and fight endures in the Mid East, despite, and in spite of Obama, and THAT is Obama's real dilema.
It was George Bush's policy of direct engagement and support of liberty that has led to the people of Iran seeing the measure of freedom now established on both sides of them in Iraq and Afghjanistan...and desiring it for themselves.
Obama cannot possibly go too far in recognizing that, or he absolutely repudiates himself and his entire foreign policy.
...but the fight in Iran is far from over, and is getting brutal.

He’s a fake, lier, coward and traitor. Case closed.
“On the one hand, they [the Obama administration] write a letter to us to express their respect for the Islamic Republic and for re-establishment of ties, and on the other hand they make these remarks. Which one of these remarks are we supposed to believe?”
Like I said ;),
They took “respect for the Islamic Republic” to mean respect for the government, different than past presidents who used only “Iran.” They cannot understand Obama. But who really does?
So....what is Barry’s definition of meddling, then? I’m confused....
For those that missed the presser could you elaborate on Major Garret’s question, please?
American history will not favor President Øcoward no matter what his excuses, and in the sad event the protesters are crushed,
pictures of the oppressor Ahmadinejad and the appeaser Øbama together will be a small part of what else the Iranian crackdown now hides by kicking out the press
To me, the most gut-wrenching thing Obama has said, and recently reiterated, is that Muslim women have the right to cover themselves in the burqa or nigab in America. Praise God for Sarkozy who will institute a total ban in France if he is successful.
This removal of a woman’s face and identity is brutal and often to cover bruises. Tunisia banned the face coverings and lo and behold, they have no problem with extremists and a booming tourist industry.
Timmerman tells Bob Grant: Obama and Clinton secretly negotiating with Iran

Author Kenneth Timmermann was on Bob Grants radio show tonight and he said that both the Obama and Clinton campaigns were secretly negotiating with the Iranian Islamic Republic.
Timmermann said his source said that Obama has promised to recognized the Islamic Republic of Iran in exchange for a scale down nuclear weapons program. It also included what influence Iran would have in Iraq.
The Islamic Republic believes that Obama has a better chance in the winning the election.
I have heard Timmermann before and he seems to be a credible person even though he writes for Newsmax. He throughly documents and sources what he says.
The problem is that the Administration is still committed to its “diplomacy” with the Iran regime. Anything that the regime does is irrelevant. It doesn’t matter. The Administration’s stated policy is one of neutrality - despite the declarations of concern.
I long for a government that would be “crass” enough to look out after U.S. interests, and not everyone else’s.
How'd that open hand thingie go, 0bummer?
This won't play well in Peoria...cutting a deal with Theocratic despots...inviting them over for hot dogs on the 4th...while they're shooting innocents on the streets.
Color me unsurprised.
If Obama truly didn't want to meddle in the politics of Iran, he would have waited until after the election.
Ah yes, this is the typcial MEDDLING OF A MARXIST POS WHO CODDLES ISLAMISTS AND COMMUNISTS
Obama before the Iranian election....effectively: "go ahead and do anything you want in the election, we will talk to you afterward no matter what!"
He actually thought the elections would be inconsequential, and by reaching out to Khamenei before the election, he would ingratiate himself rather than looking like he was reaching out only after the election. He gambled, foolishly. He lost.
This is what happens when arrogance meets naivete. It reminds me of Carter, in his post-presidency, observing the looming elections from the safety of his Managua hotel room, was convinced Ortega would win the 1990 Nicaraguan elections, while massive voter turnout in the countryside catapulted Chamorro to power.
We are seeing a "reboot" of the Carter administration. Instead of a folksy farmer, we have a suave city slicker. Instead of southern, we have Chicagoan. The naivete is the same, but the arrogance is far worse today.
Obama needs to go back to street hustling, eating frozen custard, and complaining about the price of arugula. He needs to leave foreign policy to the adults.
Obama is slowly working his way over to the proper position like a 4-year old in roller skates, holding onto the partition the entire way.
