A Weak American President

(10:00AM EST – promoted by Nightprowlkitty)

The newest smear.  All because Iran is in revolution mode.  IRAN is in revolution mode.  And I say good for them.  But here in America, our president is assailed as being weak because he won’t yell at them.  After yelling there must be force or something to back it up, I would think.  Or if you yell you should at least be yelling from a position of strength.

A Weak American President

And when asked again, “If you do accept the election of Ahmadinejad … without any significant changes in the conditions there, isn’t that a betrayal of what the demonstrators there are working to achieve?” He answered: “We can’t say definitively what exactly happened at polling places.”

And asked again: “Why won’t you spell out the consequences that the Iranian people…” He answered: “Because I think that we don’t know yet how this thing is going to play out.”

And yet again: “Shouldn’t the present regime know that there are consequences?” He answered: “We don’t yet know how this is going to play out.”


The president of America is as weak as one says he is these days.  Being cautious on Iran is being weak.  Where do these critics come from.  Do they not know the America they knew changed a few years back?  All that bravado has run its course and our country to hell.  Why, i was just watching National Lampoon’s vacation.  The one to Wally World, and I saw the family and the car trip and the community and I thought, wow, that America is gone.

Anyway, as a citizen of America, who finds themselves deeply caring for Iran.  Something I had not been privy to doing in the past about Iran because of all of the bravado of the United States and its policies toward that nation.  I couldn’t even see the people and their plight.  All I knew is Iran was bad news where America was concerned.

I like the view I have of Iran now.  I am in awe of the Iranian people and their fighting spirit.  The women, the youth.  But I ask myself, because of this writer from Forbes, how can america help?  I look to my president and I see him speak on his position and I think and feel, yeah, you are right Mr. President.  At the same time, I feel that if the Iranian people wanted our help they would ask for it.  I have not heard them ask for it.  Have I missed this asking?

This Iranian government has told us in deeds, as well as in words, exactly what path it has chosen. President Obama has told us his path also: pandering to Islamic radicals and empty posturing. Ironically, the rest of the world claimed they wanted a weak American president whose foreign policy would read “apologize, capitulate and stand down.” Now that they have what they asked for, real human rights victims are being forced to pay the piper.

I don’t know about this world claim of hers.  I used to read where the world wanted a ‘better’ president, for communications purposes.  They also wanted a strong America, but I never heard of this want of a weak American president.  Maybe she forgot to report this.

Meanwhile, back in america, the country where the American president is really responsible for, I have to say, I feel the people and this country are weak and have been deliberately weakened.  The infrastructure is weak.  Job outlook is weak.  The economy is weak. Medical coverage is weak.  The congress is acting weak.  In a nutshell,  America is like Iran.  Americans may need to take to the streets.

So, Forbes writer, I think you may want to recognize that America itself is weak.  Not just the president.  Your article is weak.  You are weak.  That’s why you write articles.  Go do something yourself. You writing in a financial magazine.  Your constituents are the ones who make the world weak with their neverending greed.  


  1. I like Iran, too.

    send an email to the White House:  tell Obama we’ve got your back on this; please don’t cave, and please, please, please don’t make it the case that 5 years down the road we will find out that while you were telling the American people that the US is not meddling in Iran, that we really were, and that the blood of Neda and the other Iranians is on our hands.

    ya gots ta be honest, Obama.
