Barack Obama … Let the Iranians Eat Ice Cream … Where is the Support for Democracy & Human Rights from the White House?
What is wrong with this President … Let them eat cake or is it ice cream!
This truly is an “Obamination”!!!
Barack Obama finally spoke out against the actions on Saturday by the Iranian regime when the brutality of what was taking place was on display for all to see and asked them to stop the “unjust actions.” It was far too little and far too late. Then … he went and got some vanilla ice cream in a “waffle” cone.

CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW THE PRESS WOULD HAVE REACTED IN GWB DID SOMETHING LIKE THIS?
How in the tank is the mainstream media when we have people dying (graphic pic) for their right to be free in a country like Iran than has been such a thorn in the side of America and the spread of democracy in the Middle East and the media thinks that covering Obama and his daughters having ice cream is news? WTF!!!
Who is out of touch? How does President Barack “Hussein” Obama waltz around as it nothing is going on in the world and enjoy an ice cream?
Nice image to present to the world Mr. President. I am sure the Iranian opposition protestors can take great solace in your support of enjoying an ice cream cone.

Iranian’s are being shot in the streets by a dictatorial regime who is an enemy of the United States and President Barack Obama goes and gets some ice cream. Hardly the actions of a liberal, Democratic President that everyone would think would be for human rights. Check out the pics at Revolutionary Road and see the people’s efforts to protest for freedom in the face of injury, arrest and death and contrast that with Obama getting ice cream.
Obama says: Let them have rocks
After a week of deafening silence from the White House on a fraudulent Iranian election in which President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was elected in a so-called landslide, Obama asked Iran to stop the “unjust actions” against their people and then went and had frozen custard with his daughters.
Meanwhile, Morrissey notes “The latest unverified/rumored death toll is 150. In other news, Obama ordered a small cup of vanilla” (Twitter death toll link corrected by me).
President George W. Bush freed over 50 million Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan during his watch. For his efforts he was made to be a villain and a “cowboy” by the US media. Barack Obama has a chance to make a real difference in Iran as the people have gotten to a boiling point where even they cannot stomach the fraudulent activities that took place during last week’s Presidential election. President Obama’s answer is to be neutral. He is hedging his bets. As Mark Styn from The National Review has stated, “Neutrality Isn’t an Option”.
The polite explanation for Barack Obama’s diffidence on Iran is that he doesn’t want to give the mullahs the excuse to say the Great Satan is meddling in Tehran’s affairs. So the president’s official position is that he’s modestly encouraged by the regime’s supposed interest in investigating some of the allegations of fraud. Also, he’s heartened to hear that OJ is looking for the real killers. “You’ve seen in Iran,” explained President Obama, “some initial reaction from the Supreme Leader that indicates he understands the Iranian people have deep concerns about the election . . . ”
In a word, Obama’s policy on Iran is gutless. This is why a President is elected, to make the tough decisions. Right or wrong, a President’s job is to make a decision, not waffle.
Dear Mr. Obama … you are the one who wanted to be President. That means you are President first and father and husband second. That is the choice you made.
UPDATE I: They killed Neda, but not her voice … from Michelle Malkin
Her name was Neda, which means “voice” in Farsi. According to numerous online accounts picked up by media outlets worldwide, she was shot in the streets by Iranian state police while protesting today. This is what repression looks (warning: graphic):
