As pointed out in the article, the opposition to the government comes from the exploited middle class, while the support comes from the subsidized poor, who supply the Basij thugs who beat up anybody opposing the regime.

(I'm sure that Obama and his pals are studying the Iranian regime's methods intently)

The problem for Iran is that if the mullahs are overthrown, the poor are going to not like it, and will rise up the minute some ayatollah comes along to lead them. The problem for the middle class is that they will never have peace and freedom as long as the underclass physically exists.

The problem for Obama and his pals is that many of the subsidized poor in America believe that they can escape to the middle class. Obama is working hard to extinguish that hope.
