Charles Krauthammer critiques the President’s remarks about the Iran uprising.

Flaccid words. Meaningless words.

This is a revolution in the streets. Revolutions happen quickly. There is a moment here in which if the thugs in the street who are shooting in the crowds stop shooting, it’s over and the regime will fall. The courage of the demonstrators and the boldness isn’t only a demonstration of courage, it is a indication of a shift in the balance of power. The regime is weakening. This is a hinge of history. Everything in the region will change if the regime is to change. Obama ought to be strong out there and saying to the illegitimate government, we stand shoulder to shoulder with the people in the street. He talks about diplomacy. He should be urging our Western allies who have relations to cut them off, isolate the regime, to ostracize it. He ought to be going in the U.N., every forum, denouncing it. This is a moment in history and he’s missing it.

Maybe the President’s problem is that he can see only himself as the Lever of History. He is The One. This is his time. Not only is it inconceivable to him that other people might be changing history, it’s a damn nuisance to hear about these things while he’s on vacation (News Interrupts Obama’s Hawaii Vacation).

    The theme song of the Urkel Administration should be “A Day Late and a Dollar Short.” The man simply doesn’t care. He’d rather go surfing on the Banzai Pipeline than be a part of history. Pathetic.

    I have to disagree here – Obama isn’t missing history, he really supports the Iranian government in their desire to crush dissent. It’s what he dreams about over here too…

    The puppet boy president is again out to lunch and out of the way while the Obama machine plan their next move. Their goal is to turn America into a Fascist state. Obama and his fellow America haters don’t give a damn about the people of Iran. Listening to Jan man hands talk about the failed attempt of that terrorist to blow one of our planes out of the sky on Christmas day was nauseating. I’m beginning to wonder if we are going to make it to the 2010 elections.

      If we do make it to the 2010 elections, I’m beginning to wonder if we’ll make it without suffering not one, not two, but several terrorist attacks before then.

      Can anyone doubt what the Dinosaur Media’s reaction would be if this were Christmas 2007? The press would be camped out at Bush’s ranch, the Leftists would be calling for Bush’s Homeland Security Secretary’s head as well as for Condeleeza Rice’s! As things are now they’re covering for their Golden Boy.

      Well at least some Dems are distancing themselves from Obumbler on this blunder of failed national security policy:

    MOGADISHU, Somalia – A man tried to board a commercial airliner in Mogadishu last month carrying powdered chemicals, liquid and a syringe that could have caused an explosion in a case bearing chilling similarities to the terrorist plot to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner, officials told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
