Obama recognizes Ahmadinejad; Gives Iranians The Bird
The White House called Mahmoud Ahmadinejad the “elected leader” of Iran on Tuesday when asked whether President Barack Obama recognized the Iranian president after the country’s disputed election.
“This was a decision and a debate ongoing in Iran by Iranians, they were going to choose their leadership,” White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said. “He’s the elected leader.”
For all intents and purposes, President Obama just said to Iranians: “Too Bad, So Sad, Suck. It. Up. Might I suggest a Summit? They’re totally awesome.”
Though, should be really be surprised that the Administration has no qualms about propagating a lie and saying that Ahmadinejad was Elected? Obama is basically just telling the Iranian protestors, both living and dead, the same thing he tells us: “Because Shut Up”
I feel so totally old skool, believing in pesky stuff like democracy and capitalism and free, legitimate elections. This is Hope and Change, baby! Progress!
As Frank Fleming (IMAO) said on The Twit, “Remember when we had a president who was for democracy? That was cool.”
Evidently, believing in Democracy and free, valid elections is NOT something Obama “inherited” from Bush.
