Default Re: The hesitancy heard around the world..

If Obama cared about defending or promoting theocratic Islamic governments he would be arguing on behalf of the regime and trying to reconcile them with protesters.

Think about it this way: you know how the US right has deranged nightmares about Obama being a secret agent for Mohammed? The Iranian right is similarly paranoid about their opponents being secret agents for Uncle Sam. If Khamenei defended Obama in the name of the revealed truth of Islam, the entire US right would simultaneously orgasm. If Obama defends the protesters in the name of democracy promotion, the Iranian right would be just as overjoyed.
