TEHRAN (Reuters) President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused Barack Obama on Thursday of behaving like his predecessor toward Iran and said there was not much point in talking to Washington unless the U.S. president apologized.
Obama said on Tuesday he was "appalled and outraged" by a post-election crackdown and Washington withdrew invitations to Iranian diplomats to attend Independence Day celebrations on July 4 -- stalling efforts to improve ties with Tehran.
"Mr Obama made a mistake to say those things ... our question is why he fell into this trap and said things that previously (former president George W.) Bush used to say," the semi-official Fars News Agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.
"Do you want to speak with this tone? If that is your stance then what is left to talk about ... I hope you avoid interfering in Iran's affairs and express your regret in a way that the Iranian nation is informed of it," he said.

Voting “present” is getting more difficult every day...
(With apologies to the dogs)
Nutjob calling Acornguy
Wuzz up Barry?
What an insult to Bush.
So now we have the worst of both worlds ... still hated by the Iranian kooks and appearing weak at the same time. Good job, Obama.
He called him a smirking chimp?
He believes the Obamessiah is his puppet, now. And, Obama is his puppet. He knows the Obamessiah is weak, now. And, Obama is weak.
Obama makes the French look more powerful than the U.S. And, the France is more powerful and authoritative than the United States of America, now.
Beat me to it. 0 can only wish he was the same as GWB. That’s like Erkle wishing he was Mr T.
The dictator uses his power and ties in the media to lie to his people. And the Iranian nutjob does this to his people too!
Don’t cry Bambi, the rest of the terrorists still love you....
Voting present is getting more difficult every day.
That is a horrible insult to Bush.
He could compare him to a monkey and be more accurate.
Of course the Iranians could teach us a thing or three in how not to meddle in the internal affairs of other countries, right? Because they don't have any opinions on Lebanon, Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan...
I’m sure that Iran will get their apology. After all obambi has apologized for everything else.
Begin countdown to the Obama apology.
Let’s hope this is true: http://tehranbureau.com/iran-updates/
The following is from Mehdi Noorbaksh, Harrisburg University of Science and Technology:
There is a possibility, and I am saying a possibility, for a compromise on the election result among the involved parties in Iran in the next couple of days. I received a call from Iran late last night indicating that there is a possibility for a runoff between Mousavi and Ahmadinejad.
