Unbelievable!… Two Years Later – Obama Administration Tells Iranian Regime to Allow Protests

Worst. President. Ever.
In 2009 the Iranian regime was shooting at protesters from rooftops.

Obama said, he didn’t want “to be seen as meddling in Iranian elections.”

In 2009 Neda was shot dead in the street.

Obama ignored their calls.

Today, two years later, Barack Obama called for the Iranian regime to allow protests.
The Hill reported:

The White House said Saturday that, off the heels of 18 days of Egyptian protests that ousted President Hosni Mubarak, Iran should allow its people to demonstrate.

Tehran had praised Egyptians for rising up against Mubarak’s secular government, calling it an Islamic awakening. Yet some trace the roots of the grass-roots, social-media-driven revolt in Egypt to the Green Revolution protests against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s last election and demanding democracy.

Hey Barack… Here’s a little information…
The protests are over now. They were quashed.
Nice work.

    We’ll see his statements juxtaposed with the Iranian and Egyptian demonstrations and no one will remember he was two years late and will look like a savior. Excuse me while I puke.

  • Oh, NOW he tells them?

    Too little, too late, Barack. I agree that we’re not the world’s police, but you were weak then, and well, you’re not doin’ much better with world affairs now.

  • mg4us

    But the TOTUS just told him now. . O-buma can’t think or say anything unless TOTUS gives him the words to speak. . . even if it is two years late. . . oh well!

  • Chisum

    Obama is only saying this because he has been shamed into it.

    Didn’t you know? “president” IWonWTF is now calling himself The Gipper and channeling Ronald Reagan. This is IWonWTF’s version of “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”

    I’ll have you know that there are people in this country who think Obama was a hero for making that speech after Mubarak resigned. Of course, they have not one clue about what happened in Egypt over the last 3 weeks, having failed to avail themselves of any meaningful information.

    However, it appears that other people may be more alert: look what happened to the cable news ratings. H/T Drudge

    You know the White House is reacting to Palin’s tweet. Bet on it.

    By the time he finishes one term, he will have enough experience to be a really bad president.

    There is something missing in the statement , so I completed it :

    The White House said Saturday that, off the heels of 18 days of Egyptian protests that ousted President Hosni Mubarak, Iran should allow its people to demonstrate against Mubarak , Israel and USA.

    We need to vote Obama out of the office in 2012. He is the worse president in this history since former Pres. Carter. Obama is not doing his job because he didn’t fix the economy and create more jobs for the American people. He keep continue saying he wanted to raised more taxes. Everything has going up already like taxes, gas, food, housing, and insurance.
    His foreign policy has failed because he listened to George Soros & Co. and invited his radical group friends to the White House. Obama have a lack of inexperience and leadership. I have to say is that former Pres. George W. Bush has done a good job for the last eight years while he was is office. It is the Democratic Party are screwed.

    Following President Obama’s speech on former Egyptian President Mubarak’s decision to resign yesterday afternoon, Governor Palin tweeted the following:

    Media: ask “Will Obama Admin exert as much ‘constructive’ pressure on Iranian govt to change & allow freedom ~ as they just did for Egypt?”

    Today, the Hill reports (emphasis mine):

    The White House said Saturday that, off the heels of 18 days of Egyptian protests that ousted President Hosni Mubarak, Iran should allow its people to demonstrate.

    Tehran had praised Egyptians for rising up against Mubarak’s secular government, calling it an Islamic awakening. Yet some trace the roots of the grass-roots, social-media-driven revolt in Egypt to the Green Revolution protests against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s last election and demanding democracy.

    Opposition leaders Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroub, both candidates in that election, wanted to stage a rally Monday in support of uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt. But the regime quickly put a damper on the permit request, calling the rallies “riots by seditionists.”

    “By announcing that they will not allow opposition protests, the Iranian government has declared illegal for Iranians what it claimed was noble for Egyptians,” National Security Adviser Tom Donilon said in a statement released by the White House on Saturday.

    “We call on the government of Iran to allow the Iranian people the universal right to peacefully assemble, demonstrate and communicate that’s being exercised in Cairo,” he said.

    Well, what do we have here? Governor Palin tweets, and the next day, President Obama jumps. The Obama administration is thankfully heading Governor Palin’s advice for once. However, it cannot be forgotten that President Obama largely ignored the green movement protests during Iran’s presidential election in 2009 and has not taken a strong stance against the tyranny of President Ahmadinejad. This is not the first time that Governor Palin has called for respect for human rights and allowance of freedom in Iran. In an op-ed published in the USA Today in December, Governor Palin wrote:

    But we also need to encourage a positive vision for Iran. Iran is not condemned to live under the totalitarian inheritance of the Ayatollah Khomeini forever. There is an alternative — an Iran where human rights are respected, where women are not subjugated, where terrorist groups are not supported and neighbors are not threatened. A peaceful, democratic Iran should be everyone’s goal. There are many hopeful signs inside Iran that reveal the Iranian people’s desire for this peaceful, democratic future. We must encourage their voices.

    When the brave people of Iran take to the streets in defiance of their unelected dictatorship, they must know that we in the free world stand with them. When the women of Iran rise up to demand their rights, they must know that we women of the free world who enjoy the rights won for us by our suffragist foremothers stand with our sisters there. When Iranians demand freedom of religion, freedom of conscience and freedom to simply live their lives as they choose without persecution, we in the free world must stand with them.

    Of course, in Governor Palin’s tweet yesterday, she effectively challenged both the media and the Obama administration using only 140 characters. President Obama may have released a statement quoting his national security advisor, but that’s a far cry from a bold stance for freedom and democracy. President Obama has taken a tiny baby step in the right direction. We’re all, of course, still waiting for the media to challenge the Obama administration.

    Did any one listen to Col. West/Congressman West at CPAC? FANTASTIC! West/Palin


    Sarah palin is a thorn in Imam Obama’s shoe! It is amazing how quickly the Imam reacts to her criticisms.
    It goes to plainly show how out of touch the Imam is with America.

    #7 Joe, #14 Dave and #15 Dan. That is exactly what struck me immediately upon reading Obama’s letest take on Iran.

    Of course, the charlatan is reacting to Palin’s twitter as no other prominent Republican figure dared to challenge him on that matter.

    If not fo Palin, the usurper wouldn’t lift a little finger on behalf of Iranian opposition for the simple reason; it is not his task to promote a real democracy. Qute the opposite. Whatever his superiors are, the target they have ascribed to him is to destroy democracy and freedom.

    However, the acting by Obama’s regime resembles the situation in Poland in 1981 during the SOLIDARITY upraising.

    It was in reality the Solidarity’s leadership concentrated around Lech Waleas that was in charge of Poland and not the desintegrating communo-fascist regime.

    If not for the military coup pertpetrated by gen. Jaruzelski under the Soviet pressure, communism would be swept away like a casual, furtive fart by a tornado.

    Obama got in Iran exactly what he desired: the complete, brutal, murderous suppression of REAL student protesters against a theocratic dictatorship. One word from Obama and the mullah’s would have fallen. Obama LIKES RADICAL MUSLIM DICTATORS and WANTS them in power. Obama is a murderous bastard to be sure, and the msm networks function as the braying sheep in “Animal Farm”. Obama has us on the road to World War, without question.

    Slightly O/T but speaking about Palins, seem that even Sarah’s daughter, Bristol, even if she is much less eloquent and outspoken than her mum, can speak without teleprompter.

    That cannot be said about Obama, of course.

    The c4p blog has a take on Bristol’s presentation in a church in Arcadia. Looks like the folks liked it there.

    And their youngest girl, Piper who was there with Bristol, seems to be growing the same compassion for politics as her mum.

    Piper Palin in 2040?

    Heh…he just wants the world to see the Muslim Brotherhood Dog & Pony Show broadcast live from Iran.

  • Joanne

    Obama likes that fact that Iran is under hard-core Islamists, and wanted the same for Egypt with the oust of Mubarak making the way for his pals, the Muslim Brotherhood.

  • I dislike this president immensely


  • Annaleesea

    President Jarret is really showing her ineptitude here. Guess running Chicagoland is a little different than running the country. Trying to analyze the relationship between her and little Barry. She’s either a missing mother figure or she gets her whips and handcuffs out on a regular basis. Or maybe she just sneaks Barry smokes and high fat snacks from time to time behind queen michelles back while she’s having fun in her White House cucumber garden. You just don’t know

  • jorgen

    Obama meddled with Egypt because Egypt was an ally of USA.
    Obama didn’t meddle with Iran because Iran was an enemy of USA – and probably because – as we now know – he gets all his information from CNN.

    And the ignorant democrat voters are so happy. They say Obama promotes freedom.

    Yes, Obama likes islamists, he was friends with them in college and during his career in Chicago. Obama once again demonstrates incredible tone deafness. Iran might have been free today but for Obama’s sucking up to the islamist mullahcracy. As for protests, Iran allows protest, so long as they are for condemning Israel, USA, the West, Mubarek.

  • bobdog

    Mr. Ahmadinejad, clean up those bodies! Hello? Hello?


  • Valerie

    Meanwhile, in Egypt, they’re voting on ideas for the transition via Google; tracking Mubarak’s family assets; getting alternative sources for news broadcasts when the feed gets cut; outing Islamists for committing phauxtography; summarizing news conferences as they happen; tamping down on rumors that the Army has misbehaved. Reports of removal of tents by army are false; reports of scuffles overblown for now.

    One win: they demanded a timetable for the transition and got it: elections will be in September, and a committee will be formed to amend the Constitution.

  • To quote Ann Coulter:

    I just want to say: I think it’s fantastic that the Democrats have finally come out against race discrimination. Any day now, maybe they’ll come out for fighting the Cold War. Perhaps 100 years from now, they’ll be ready to fight the war on terrorism or champion the rights of the unborn. It would be a big help, though, if Democrats could support good causes when it mattered.
