ANALYSIS/OPINION:

When the Iranians fought with their bare hands for the democracy robbed from them by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President Obama refused to condemn Mr. Ahmadinejad’s crime. Instead, Mr. Obama credulously accepts Mr. Ahmadinejad as the legitimate president of Iran. When the “tea party” demonstrators showed up at the president’s doorstep over the weekend to voice their concerns to him, Mr. Obama flew to Minnesota to peddle his socialized medicine scheme.

If Mr. Obama were a true leader who rose through the political ranks based on his own merit, he would have had the courage to face democracy in action by meeting with these protesters, who were exercising their right to free speech and assembly. I wouldn’t be shocked if Mr. Obama appoints a czar to control tea partyers and town-hall meetings.
