Obama voting 'present' on Iran

From a Michael Ledeen post updating the situation in Iran: Meanwhile, the American Government was sending conflicting signals to Tehran.
On the one hand, it seems that Obama will be going to the upcoming G8 conference with a request that there be no new sanctions on Iran. This comes at a time when the Europeans, for the first time, seem inclined to get at least a little bit tougher on the mullahs, and it effectively demolishes the myth that this administration intends to do anything to support the Iranian people in their life and death struggle for freedom (perhaps this should not surprise us; after all, Obama’s 4th of July message did not contain the word “freedom,” but it did talk a lot about his own legislative proposals). At the same time, Vice President Joe Biden three times said the United States would do nothing to prevent an Israeli attack against Iranian nuclear targets.

So apparently we’re prepared to let the Israelis do our dirty work. A real standup sort of policy.
Yup. It's just Obama voting 'present' again.

Two songs to sing along with.

OK, the first song is a bit easier to hum along with.

Obama wants to have it both ways. That's not a profile in courage.

What could go wrong indeed
