Iran Erupts, Obama Feeds His Dog Ice Cream

While Iranians bravely risk death to stand up to the demonic regime oppressing their country, Chairman Zero hems and haws, unwilling to say whether he sides with liberty on one hand, or a terrorist dictatorship that is for all intents and purposes at war with the United States on the other. Anyway, Comrade Obama has higher priorities — like staging heartwarming photo ops with his media sycophants.

If you want to know what's going on in the world, you can refer to the Twitter page of Change for Iran, or CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller. Via Patterico's Pontifications, a comparison of the two:

Needless to say, replacing Iran's demented theocracy with a friendly democratic government would radically change the world for the better. Also needless to say, the mainstream media is a tasteless joke, just like the stuttering affirmative action post turtle it installed in the White House.

What's going on in Iran while Obama feeds his dog ice cream (GRAPHIC).

That scumbag POS Obama gave the Iranian mullahs the green light, letting them know the Free World wouldn't lift a finger in defense of people yearning to be free. Not even an acknowledgment by Obama of the freedom and Liberty America stands for. Obama is a worthless piece of shit.

Hey, President Dumbass... we realize your family life is important and all, but don't you think it's phenomenally bad timing to be out buying ice cream for your daughters and your dog while people are being beaten bloody by the same Islamic tyrants you have in the past expressed a desire to do business with?

Our False Prophet appears to have no idea what a golden opportunity he’s passing up… overthrow this evil regime without firing a single shot… get their Armageddon-inspired nuke program off the world stage… and free 30 million people all at one time.

But the boy wonder is too stupid to see it… or somehow just doesn’t care?

And isn’t this what George W Bush told you was going to happen in the Middle East in the wake of Iraq’s liberation?
Maybe that’s why Barack Obama has so little apparent interest in finishing the job in Iran… no matter how much it benefits the US and free world.

That, and the fact that he’s already piled all his chips on legitimizing this vile regime- a democratic revolution at this point would be embarrassing for our narcissist-in-chief.

These people are out there facing armed thugs with nothing but guts. Unfortunately, they probably thought that America -- the place that used to stand for freedom and liberty -- would stand with them, in word if not in deed.

Instead, they get Obama gently criticizing the mullahs, asking them to please stop the "violence and unjust" crackdown.

What a shameful, moral coward he is.

Posted by: Rich at June 21, 2009 9:14 PM

Here's what it sounded like the last time an adult was in charge of our foreign policy:

THE PRESIDENT:

"A great new era is unfolding before us. This new era is founded on the equality of all people before God. This new era is being built with the understanding that power is a trust that must be exercised with the consent of the governed -- and deliver equal justice under the law. And this new era offers hope for the millions across the Middle East who yearn for a future of peace and progress and opportunity.

One cause of instability is the extremists supported and embodied by the regime that sits in Tehran. Iran is today the world's leading state sponsor of terror. It sends hundreds of millions of dollars to extremists around the world -- while its own people face repression and economic hardship at home. It undermines Lebanese hopes for peace by arming and aiding the terrorist group Hezbollah. It subverts the hopes for peace in other parts of the region by funding terrorist groups like Hamas and the Palestine Islamic Jihad. It sends arms to the Taliban in Afghanistan and Shia militants in Iraq. It seeks to intimidate its neighbors with ballistic missiles and bellicose rhetoric. And finally, it defies the United Nations and destabilizes the region by refusing to be open and transparent about its nuclear programs and ambitions. Iran's actions threaten the security of nations everywhere. So the United States is strengthening our longstanding security commitments with our friends in the Gulf -- and rallying friends around the world to confront this danger before it is too late.

The other major cause of instability is the extremists embodied by al Qaeda and its affiliates. On September 11, 2001, al Qaeda murdered nearly 3,000 people on America's home soil. Some of the victims that day were innocent Muslims. And since then, al Qaeda and its allies have killed many more Muslims here in the Middle East -- including women and children. In Afghanistan under the Taliban, on Iraq's Anbar Province, they ruled by intimidation and murder. Their goal is to impose that same dark rule across the Middle East. So they seek to topple your governments, acquire weapons of mass destruction, and drive a wedge between the people of the United States and the people of the Middle East. And they will fail. The United States joins you in your commitment to the freedom and security of this region -- and we will not abandon you to terrorists or extremists.

The fight against the forces of extremism is the great ideological struggle of our time. And in this fight, our nations have a weapon more powerful than bombs or bullets. It is the desire for freedom and justice written into our hearts by Almighty God -- and no terrorist or tyrant can take that away. We see this desire in the 12 million Iraqis who dipped their fingers in purple ink as they voted in defiance of al Qaeda. We see the desire in the Palestinians who elected a President committed to peace and reconciliation. We see this desire in the thousands of Lebanese whose protests helped rid their country of a foreign occupier. And we see this desire in the brave dissidents and journalists who speak out against terror and oppression and injustice. We see this desire in the ordinary people across the Middle East, who are sick of violence, who are sick of corruption, sick of empty promises -- and who choose a free future whenever they are given a chance."

I recognize that some people -- including some in my own country -- believe it is a mistake to support democratic freedom in the Middle East. They say that the Arab people are not "ready" for democracy. Of course, that is exactly what people said about the Japanese after World War II. Some said that having an Emperor was incompatible with democracy. Some said that the Japanese religion was incompatible with democracy. Some said that advancing freedom in Japan and the Pacific was unwise, because our interests lay in supporting pro-American leaders no matter how they ruled their people.

Fortunately, America rejected this advice, kept our faith in freedom, and stood with the people of Asia. The results are now in. Today the people of Japan have both a working democracy and a hereditary emperor. They have preserved their traditional religious practices while tolerating the faiths of others. They are surrounded by many democracies that reflect the full diversity of the region. Some of these democracies have constitutional monarchies, some have parliaments, and some have presidents. Some of these democracies have Christian majorities, some have Muslim majorities, some have Hindu or Buddhist majorities. Yet for all the differences, the free nations of Asia all derive their authority from the consent of the governed -- and all know the lasting stability that only freedom can bring.

This transformation would not have been possible without America's presence and perseverance over many decades. And just as our commitment to Asia helped people there secure their freedom and prosperity, our commitment to the Middle East will help you achieve yours. And you can know from our record in Asia that our commitment is real, it is strong, and it is lasting.

To the people of Iran: You are rich in culture and talent. You have a right to live under a government that listens to your wishes, respects your talents, and allows you to build better lives for your families. Unfortunately, your government denies you these opportunities, and threatens the peace and stability of your neighbors. So we call on the regime in Tehran to heed your will, and to make itself accountable to you. The day will come when the people of Iran have a government that embraces liberty and justice, and Iran joins the community of free nations. And when that good day comes, you will have no better friend than the United States of America.

To the leaders across the Middle East who are fighting the extremists: The United States will stand with you as you confront the terrorists and radicals. We urge you to join us in committing the resources to help the Palestinians build the institutions of a free society. Help the citizens of Lebanon preserve their government and their sovereignty in the face of outside pressure from their neighbors. Show the Iraqis that you support them in their effort to build a more hopeful nation. And as you do these things, the best way to defeat the extremists in your midst is by opening your societies, and trusting in your people, and giving them a voice in their nation.

And finally, to the people of the Middle East: We hear your cries for justice. We share your desire for a free and prosperous future. And as you struggle to find your voice and make your way in this world, the United States will stand with you.

For most of the world, there's no greater symbol of America than the Statue of Liberty. It was designed by a man who traveled widely in this part of the world -- and who had originally envisioned his woman bearing a torch as standing over the Suez Canal. Ultimately, of course, it was erected in New York Harbor, where it has been an inspiration to generations of immigrants. One of these immigrants was a poet-writer named Ameen Rihani. Gazing at her lamp held high, he wondered whether her sister might be erected in the lands of his Arab forefathers. Here is how he put it: "When will you turn your face toward the East, oh Liberty?"

My friends, a future of liberty stands before you. It is your right. It is your dream. And it is your destiny.

God bless. (Applause.)

Excerpts from:

http://www.cfr.org/publication/15253/

Unfortunately, we have no one of strong enough left in government to rely on to back up the President's words ... "And when that good day comes, you will have no better friend than the United States of America." Just a simpleton quisling poser who feeds a dog ice cream for a photo-op with his worshipers while the greatest chance for fruition of The Presdident's visionary words unfolds.

Posted by: Jim at June 21, 2009 11:16 PM

Interesting, all of this from an ilk of folks who were eager to "Bomb,Bomb,Bomb, Iran" just months ago. As was stated yesterday, by Mega "Staying on the sidelines has its costs, but if this Iranian protest thing is going to work, it has to stand on its own two feet - they have to do it, for themselves." Moving without caution on the protests in Iran could have consequences to any improvements we have already assisted in within the region, and have repurcusions on our soldiers in Iraq.Already having delicate relations with Iran,if the U.S. Government meddles in this conflict the setback(s) could be severe. As I said, the Iranians know that America is with them on this struggle,and that support is belittled by people using "their fight" as a political tool against their own President. Do I think President Obama could have used stronger language? Maybe. Do we send a reckless inflammatory message to a country in the midst of conflict? No.

People are dying the in the streets of Tehran and you wish to bother with "Dumb ass Barack probably bought his dog a bowl of chocolate chunk. Tommorrows photo op: Odumba burying dog."?

What are such trifles as demonstrations in Iran to an Olympian* sitting atop the MainStream-Mountain? Surely it would be beneath His dignity to concern Himself with such pettiness.

* Or should that be "Obampian." Either way, Emperor Nero Arugula has topped the Romans of old, by placing not one but many horses in the senate. And he sure knows how to play the lyre (liar?) while the world burns.

You ought to know that most right-wingers don't hate Iran for the very fact that it is Iran, but because of what it does (fund and export Islamic terrorism) and wishes to do (wipe out at least one country of the map).

No, wait. There's no reason why you ought to know that. You're a Leftist. It's me who ought to know Leftists aren't capable of seeing human relations through any other prism than the racial one. My apologies for overestimating you.

Already having delicate relations with Iran, if the U.S. Government meddles in this conflict the setback(s) could be severe.

Sure. But meddling in Israel, telling the Jews they're not allowed to live in certain parts of their God-given, ancestral land, that's A-OK with you. Yeah.

Treasonous scum.

Using the protesters in Iran as a launching pad to attack Obama for spending Fathers Day out with his kids is ineffective and childish.

Aaaaah. One wonders, when is it not "ineffective and childish" to attack Obama, hmmm? I can only hazard a guess.

To give it to you straight, not only is this a suitable situation for attacking Obama, it's one of the most suitable situations for that. Days of rioting in Iran pass before the Moron-In-Chief deigns to say something, and then he quickly proceeds to the golf course. If that isn't a window into his priorities, into his ineptitude (I wish it were just that... looking more like planned nowadays), then I don't know what is. What does Obama have to do to deserve this kind of criticism? Go swimming after an atomic attack? Just what?!

How pathetic does America look when we watch whats taking place in Tehran and you'd rather use it to divide...

Yeah, the Left never used divisive rhetoric in the eight years of Bush's presidency. Right.

I think I'll wash with a quotation from one of yours: "Dissent is patriotic." (Hillary Rodham Clinton)

Keep that in mind. No, wait, I'm deluding myself again. Ask Garofalo how patriotic the dissent of the Tea Parties is for a slap back into reality.

Posted by: Conservigilant at June 22, 2009 4:34 AM

Funny how liberals attack conservatives for not caring about the big issues, and when they do speak out about the big issues, they are being "divisive".

For my part, I'd really like Obama to speak forcefully in defense of the Iranian's people's natural right to petition their government for grievances, but I know that would be unrealistic, since it is becoming more and more apparent that he'd like to abolish our constitutional right to do the same.

Posted by: Judith M. at June 22, 2009 4:43 AM

That is my point! How effective was my ilk's rhetoric over the Bush era? It wasn't, and we now recognize that. I tried often to not use that language, but I am sure I participated. Like I said, leading the charge is John McCain who chimed in with "bomb,bomb,bomb Iran!", but is not realizing the regime is still in charge, nor are you. The implications of "too much" will have consequences that we neither have the money or manpower for. I don't know where you are geographically, but in Metro Detroit (especially Dearborn), Iranian Americans I have spoken with support this approach.

As one of your progressive heroes once said, "We are Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with this administration or with any administration."

And if you don't see how going on a photo op with his daughters and buying ice cream for his dog while people in Teheran are being literally beaten to death by the same bunch of thugs he claims to want to negotiate with in good faith is just plain bad form, then the Kool-Aid levels in your bloodstream must be running about 4 times the legal limit.

This is what I love about you... you time and again you act like an asshole, then never seem to understand when others treat you like an asshole.

Using the protesters in Iran as a launching pad to attack Obama for spending Fathers Day out with his kids is ineffective and childish.

I don't really care. He's the President of the United States. It is a job with responsibilities, and thus far his responses to the Iranian crisis have been tepid at best. He's attempting to vote "present" on this issue because it's a tough one.

For eight frikkin' years, every move that George Bush made was put under the microscope, criticized and attacked by your side. Get used to it, Flintstone.

How pathetic does America look when we watch whats taking place in Tehran and you'd rather use it to divide...Puhleeease!

Getting twitchy? Good. What's "taking place" in Iran is the best opportunity to weaken the mullahs we've had in decades, and Obama's reaction has been a pathetic attempt to not have to make any tough decisions. He is a WEAK man, the kind of person who should never sit in the Oval Office.

Posted by: Evil Otto at June 22, 2009 5:48 AM

Ghost of Wellstone:

How effective was my ilk's rhetoric over the Bush era?

Effective enough to get Obama elected on a vacuous platform of "Hope" and "Change."

Divisiveness for the sake of dividing is despicable. Divisiveness over questions of truth is the lifeblood of any functioning democracy. The fact that the MSM considers most questions about Obama's ideas and policies to be off limits bodes ill to the Republic.

The implications of "too much" will have consequences that we neither have the money or manpower for.

If you're saying American support for the Iranian rioting could play into the hands of the current regime, then you're wrong--the regime would frame it as an "American/Zionist plot" even if all of Washington assumed the vocality of lambs. In fact, the regime did so right at the outset, as it has always done--as anti-American regimes always do.

but in Metro Detroit (especially Dearborn), Iranian Americans I have spoken with support this approach.

Whether they're representative is a question worth pondering. (I know, for instance, American Jews are not the ones to ask if you want to know what the public opinion is in Israel.)

Here is some effective dissent for you... "Instead of his horse, will he make Bo a Senator?"

I'll be the first to admit the repartee/snark of the blogosphere and long, reasoned articles a la Victor David Hanson aren't the same thing. But if so, why are you focussing on the former and ignoring the latter?

Posted by: Conservigilant at June 22, 2009 6:13 AM

Wellstoned, I answered what he should de in a previous thread. So instead of rehashing that, why don't you answer me... what has Obama done that's so great I should put aside my right to criticize him?

Posted by: V the K at June 22, 2009 7:12 AM

GOW: I'll tell you what Obama should do. He should publicly make a statement he defends and supports all the protesters in Iran. That election was rigged and we all know that.

He's a big pussy and you know it.

That poor woman Neda - died (God that was a chilling video); she's someone's daughter or sister, a real human being. She didn't have a fighting chance. How terrible, to die on the street like that.

While many people are being beaten OBie 1 Kenobi is having fucking ice cream!

I went on HufPo to look at the comments. The typical liberal lemmings are saying Obie is doing the right thing, typical rants of that rag.I've never seen more Anti-American rants on that website than anywhere else. These people obviously hate the US.

Well you know what? They can leave. They too are traitors like that Anti-American Bitch Arianna. Scumbags!

GRRRRR........

Posted by: Janet at June 22, 2009 7:12 AM

Obama is just following his hard-left instincts and siding with the tyrants as the left has a long history (Stalin, Mao, Castro, Chavez, Mugabe) of doing.

He doesn't want to piss off the Mullahs because visions of a Nobel Peace Prize dance in his head if he can negotiate a nuclear treaty with them... regardless of whether Iran develops nuclear weapons, which, of course, they will.

Posted by: Henry at June 22, 2009 7:53 AM

Again, taking a cautious approach to another country's elections is the right steps to take. From George Will, to Joe Scarborough, to Mega here on Moonbattery all agree. "We call on the Iranian government to stop all violent and unjust actions against its own people," Obama said in a written statement. "The universal rights to assembly and free speech must be respected, and the United States stands with all who seek to exercise those rights." Using the Iranian protesters as a political football to attack Obama is useless, and achieves nothing. President Obama could act hastily, and inflame an already treacherous situation. You are criticizing a man for spending time with his kids on Fathers Day, claiming he didn't make a statement that he actually did. Because he didn't use the exact language that you preferred does not make this a bad approach. You have every right to criticize, but at least have an alternative.And Janet, suggesting that he is handling this pretty well is Anti-American?

Posted by: Ghost of Wellstone at June 22, 2009 8:02 AM

so Obama should back the current regime in Iran. Offer full support & praise to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Tell him he can have his nukes.
Then the Islamic hardcores will have to overthrow Ahmadinejad as a tool of the Great Satan.
A new gov't will be installed and they will still hate us.

Ghost of Wellpaid Whore, Obama has a job to do. No, I don’t mean whoring on American websites, I mean speaking up for American values, once an American teaches him what they are, since he obviously has no more idea than you do.

Furthermore, this crisis erupted a week ago – Father’s Day/May Day/Pol Pot’s birthday have nothing to do with it. Obama was obviously awaiting orders on what to say. Perhaps the Central Committee had take the week off?

How pathetic does America look when we watch whats taking place in Tehran and you'd rather use it to divide

As pathetic as we looked on Nov. 4, when we at least putatively elected the Nubian Nullity.

And how about you communists’ dividing us over President Bush’s efforts to fight terrorism? Oh, right. Treason is patriotic. I forgot.

How effective was my ilk's rhetoric over the Bush era? It wasn't, and we now recognize that.

So now Americans aren’t allowed to criticize Dear Leader, because liberals have conveniently seen the light? And you communists did not simply criticize Bush, you demonized him. We’re criticizing Obama’s feeble response to tyranny – during the campaign, with respect to Georgia, and now, with respect to Iran. We’re not criticizing his appearance, although if anything, Obama looks much like a chimpanzee than Bush ever did, and yet you lot made the chimpanzee references a hardy staple.

"We call on the Iranian government to stop all violent and unjust actions against its own people," Obama said in a written statement.

In a written statement. The Great Narcissist couldn’t be bothered to speak publicly on this trifling issue. Perhaps the teleprompter was in the shop. He gives speeches at the drop of a hat on the importance of building bike paths in Honker’s Corners, North Dakota, but on this momentous event he issues a written statement? It wasn’t important enough to warrant the Messiah’s time? Talk about a phony phoning it in.

Tell your paymaster Obama is screwing the pooch. The CPUSA should have chosen a better spokesmodel, because that’s all Obama is. He couldn’t lead sailors to a whorehouse, and you know it.

Jay, I suggest you go read some of the articles at Al Jazeera, the Tehran Times, or the Arab-American News. There is division reportedly among Iranian leadership, and in order for any change there to take hold, other nations need to butt out.

"As pathetic as we looked on Nov. 4, when we at least putatively elected the Nubian Nullity."
Aren't you the clever one...the whole world cheered that evening Jay.

Think the Iranians are cheering it now?

"How pathetic does America look when we watch whats taking place in Tehran and you'd rather use it to divide..."

Just substitute the word Tehran for Iraq and you've nailed the last 8 years in a sentence. We are fighting the same forces those kids are being slaughtered are fighting. The arguement for a quiet approach ended when the bullets started flying on Saturday. The Obama ice cream outing and MSM coverage backfired as it showed him to be uncaring, out of touch and sent a message to the mullahs that we don't care what you do. Now the slaughter begins.

Famous last words.

Its days like this that make me glad I wasn't born with a dysfunctional brain-stem like "Ghost of Wellstone." Could you image a day in the life of this dullard? Getting online, and reading moonbattery (his mom bookmarks it for him) then having a hard day sharpening his pencils in his asshole, and rolling snot balls -- his mom finally tucks him in after duct-taping oven mitts over his hands so he can't play with his "dirty sausage" while looking at his Obama "Change" posters.

Obama is the worst president in history.

Do you ever read your history? Any of you, who all of a sudden are beating your chests and standing up righteously?

Maybe not. I didn't know this until recently, but an Iranian (pro-democracy) friend told me that by making threats against Iran, the US actually helps Ahmadinejad.

Here's why:

In the 50s, America backed a coup to take out Iran's popular leader, Mohammed Mosaddeq. It was clumsy. It was ugly. It sent the country, which had been reasonably stable, into an economic crisis. And ever since, the US has been looked on with mistrust -- to the point that *if* any President makes threatening comments, it serves to remind them of their common, meddling enemy.

My friend said the President is probably well aware of this; and has to walk a fine line between strong but not meddling.

Do you get it? If POTUS says something, it helps the bad guys -- Ahmedinejad's regime. It's like, everyone can unite against a common enemy.

The president can't get away with posturing on CSPAN -- his words have some weight.

The man had Father's Day, boo-hoo. There's probably haters out there who would have pounced on him for not having "family values" if he hadn't done something for Father's Day, and more haters who'd have said he was over-reaching if he *did* get involved. You just don't like him, fine; but get your facts straight.
