Considering the fact that Obama is still inviting the evil regime to July 4th festivities even as they continue to slaughter democracy protesters,
John McCain seems to have a pretty good point.

But, the Far Left is apparently outraged.
The Huffington Post interviewed Senator McCain today:

McCain wouldn’t say which side of the struggle he thought Obama was on.
“Between Ahmadinejad and the reformers, do you think there’s any doubt what side President Obama is on?” McCain (R-Ariz.) was asked by the Huffington Post. “What would be the advantage…?”
“I know what side I’m on,” McCain cut in. “I’m on the side of the people. I’m not on Ahmadinejad’s side or Mousavi. I’m on the side of the Iranian people and I’m on the right side of history. And I’m not going to walk on the other side of the street while people are being killed and beaten in the streets of Iran.”
McCain said Obama’s reaction wasn’t equal to the situation. “We can’t sit by and watch a film clip on television of a young woman bleeding to death and say that we’re worried about the Iranian reaction or our ability to negotiate with them. We have to stand up for those people,” he said.
That just about says it.
Good for you, John McCain.
More… PJTV today has a special on the crisis in Iran with experts Michael Ledeen and Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi.
They are not impressed with Obama’s response to the slaughter of democracy protests.
This is an excellent video.
