“It’s not productive, given the history of U.S.-Iranian relations, to be seen as meddling…in Iranian elections,” Obama said.  “What I will repeat, and what I said yesterday, is when I see violence directed at peaceful protesters, when I see peaceful dissent being suppressed…It is of concern to me and it is of concern to the American people.  That is not how governments should interact with their people, and it is my hope the Iranian people will make the right steps in order for them to be able to express their voices.”

First time I can remember that an American President was unable to speak up for liberty and free and fair elections.  Somehow, “it’s not productive” just isn’t going to make the history books.
