Obama Still Voting "Present"

Is that all he can say?

He doesn't want to "meddle" in Iran's politics?  What does he think his actions regarding their nuclear bomb aspirations are?

"What I would say to those people who put so much hope and energy and optimism into the political process, I would say to them that the world is watching and inspired by their participation, regardless of what the ultimate outcome of the election was," Obama said. "And they should know that the world is watching."
This is the great orator; inspiring people?  This is the role model of a great statesman, supporting and exhorting the Iranian people to throw off repression and dictatorship?  Where is the encouragement to the Iranaian people trying to rejoin the world?  Where is the equivalent to "Tear down this wall Mr. Gorbachev" that we expect from an American President?

Does he really think that voting "present" so that he doesn't upset the totalitarian regime that is hell-bent on developing nuclear weaponry will gain him any leverage in negotiating with them if they remain in power?  Apparently, his fall back position is ultimately to "defer" to the Israeli's  taking out Iran's nuclear facilities in their desperation to eliminate the existential threat to their country and the world.

His past actions are clearly defining his ongoing Presidential actions.  He is apparently incapable of stating clear and definable principles and action, unless it's related to his advancement.  With him, everything is a hedge, so that whichever way the situation turns, he  can't be criticized.
