George Will calls right wing attacks on Obama's Iran response "foolish criticism".

I'm with George Wills in finding right wing criticism of Obama's handling of the Iranian situation "foolish".

The people of Iran are not dumb. They know the American attitude towards Ahmadinejad and the entire Iranian regime. The last thing any Iranian opposition needs is to be tainted with American approval.

Americans are not popular in Iran, for very good reason.

Obama is right to keep his nose well out of this one as, no matter who eventually ends up in power, he will have to deal with them.

Iranians hate the US government. They are smart enough to differentiate between the US government and your garden variety American.

I agree, Nunya. But I still think Obama is wise to keep quiet at the moment.
