Obama is Right

No, don't adjust your screen. That's what I said.

In my continuing effort to give credit where credit is due, I'll say this.

I think it's good to take a hands-off approach regarding the Iranian election controversy. When he says that if we are seen as meddling in this, it will hurt -- he's right.

Of course, the powers that be over there have already accused us of meddling, which is no surprise. If they can create the illusion over there that these people aren't really mad, the U.S. just got them all riled up over nothing ... they can justify cracking down on it to most of the population..

Saw an Iranian woman on Fox News this morning basically saying the same thing. She's proud, she's excited, she knows it could turn out ugly, but stand back and let it take its course. I personally know a couple more Iranian women here in the U.S. who see it the same way.

Here's the deal. She also said they're using the internet, watching Fox News, twittering what they see to others, etc... so illusion is going to be harder to pull off.

So it's hurry up and wait. Barack is right.
