Helping Obama find his voice on Iran

It isn’t comfortable to watch the President of the United States, arguably the most powerful man in the world, appear feckless on the world stage.

Although I haven’t heard major media trot out the time-tested phrase, “searching for his voice,” with respect to the unrest in Iran, I assume this is more a matter of their not yet noticing that Obama is on the wrong side, what with the real important stuff like gay marriage, nationalized health care, and the rest of the domestic agenda to concentrate on.

Foreign policy is such a pain for Democrats.

So, in the spirit of bi-partisanship, I offer up these words as a source of direction for the new president’s teleprompter.

To the people of Iran:

You are rich in culture and talent.

You have a right to live under a government that listens to your wishes, respects your talents, and allows you to build better lives for your families. Unfortunately, your government denies you these opportunities, and threatens the peace and stability of your neighbors. So we call on the regime in Tehran to heed your will, and to make itself accountable to you.

The day will come when the people of Iran have a government that embraces liberty and justice, and Iran joins the community of free nations. And when that good day comes, you will have no better friend than the United States of America.
