Republicans have criticized President Obama on his silence on Iran.
"The president of the United States is supposed to lead the free world, not follow it," Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday. "He's been
timid and passive more than I would like."
I thought Republicans didn't like the government telling them what to do? So why do they want to tell a government of another country what to do?

Well, He asked for it. If he hadn't gone and taken credit for their successful election (before the votes were tallied, need I remind you) and attributing it all to his speech in Cairo, then his silence would be understandable. He has tried to be a friend and 'repairer' to our foreign relations, but that applies to ALL foreigners, not just their dictators.
And since when are we not able to express our disagreements with our government officials? I am sure you would love for us all to shut up and just go away, but think about it. Who would you have to complain to?

I would not want another country interfering in OUR business and I don't think we should over stop our bounds in another country....
They are already using Gordon Browns comments as an excuse to use excessive force against th non violent protesters
If another country was trying to inetrfere in 2000 when we had our own little election scandal , we would be FREAKING the F out!!

Does anyone remember 1981? Pres. Bush Sr encouraged the Iraqi people to rise up against Saddam and overthrow the government, and then sat back at watched 100's of Iraqi's be slaughtered by Saddam and his men.
Don't make bold statements on foreign affairs unless you are prepared to back them with action. Sen. Graham needs to sit down, shut up, and let national security and foreign relations experts handle this.
