Roger Simon’s article at Politico : “Obama plays Goldilocks on Iran“.

Ha.  In all seriousness, though, I can’t say that I’m happy about the way President Obama has handled this Iran election mess.   Those who object to President Obama’s handling of this situation aren’t asking for a military intervention here.  What we expect from our President is for the leader of the free world to support those seeking more liberty for themselves and for their families. After all, isn’t that in America’s DNA?  Isn’t that why we broke away from England?  Shouldn’t we as Americans, and President Obama as our representative, do all we can to support those Iranians in their struggle?  There’s no question in my mind that we should.  The mullahs and religious leaders in Iran will blame the West no matter what happens, and they will continue on their nuclear course regardless of any American diplomacy, so there’s no advantage to staying quiet about a stolen election.

President Obama is a part of history at this very moment.   He will eventually have to make tough choices, and will have to say things that will be unpopular, even with his core of faithful lefties in Hollywood and in the media.  If he’s not ready to follow that course, he might want to reconsider running for re-election.
