    You know Obama and his administration saved the U.S. from total meltdown and the republicans pretend like nothing he done is good. If it wasn't for Obama they'd be in the streets selling apples.

    There's no way Ahmadinejad could have won this honestly. Look at the protests over there now.

    Reminds me of Bush's 2000 election.

    The people of Iran were not heard in their election. It looks to me that the supreme leader and the Mullahs have stolen this election because of the reforms that the main opposition was going to make. The supreme leader has caused the oppression of it's people because of his religious beliefs and has no care for the will of the people of Iran! He only cares about power and control of the people of Iran! What i see in Iran is a lying government that is doomed to fail! Iran has no concern for what it's people want! The government only wants to control the middle east!

    I would dismiss Ahmadinejad's statements as lies! He talks of a nation that is peaceful but supports terrorism around the world and the true leaders, the supreme leader and Mullahs are the ones at the helm and allow the killing of Jews through the terrorist groups of Hamas and Hezbohla! Iran needs to change or the world needs to take action against the supreme leader, the Mullahs and the president!

    Did anyone actually expect a fair election, hell we have rigged elections here in the US(Both Bush Terms) and many others, we should be used to rigged elections! We are the pot calling the kettle black! Too another subject, tobacco tax, so our Obama government is going to tax tobacco and regulate it and choose not to speak about doing the same for big oil??????? Oil affects way more Americans than tobacco does and it holds our economy hostage, its time to end big oil and give back to the people!

    Yeah funny thing, since Obamas been President the liberal media pays Iraq no attention as if it doesnt exist! Our boys are still over there getting killed and ruined for life and the obama administration doesnt care nor does the leftist media care to cover it! I say if you wont cover it than bring them all home, we are only hurting America the longer we stay in Islamic land and occupy!

    Socially one of the biggest problems we Americans are facing in this country is rogue law enforcement! Beatings, Tasings, murdering of our citizens, its gotta stop! We really need to reign in law enforcement and give that back to the people as well. If cops arent going to be honest and continue to live among the fraternal order and protect their own at any cost is only. The last time Government in any country got in bed with big business was 1930`s Facist Government led by Hitler! As long as the American people allow our government to be in bed with big business this country will move ever so closely to a Facist Socialist type government! We can already say we live in a police state and its getting worse everyday! Wake up America, our country is being stolen by big business and our rights are becoming fewer and fewer! It is time for a new American revolution and take back this country!

    the people can complain and cry foul all they want to this election is over the ayatolas are the true leaders so it dosnt really matter who wins the presidentcy all the president is , is an ornament placed in a building to pass own the will of the real power and act as a messenger to the world .

    Why should this be a surprise? It is a known fact that this "maniac" who runs Iran under a dictatorship would ignore the voice of the people. However, the U.S. should not interfere, for it is their call, not ours. How sad it is that a democracy is not allowed in this country!

    We, Americans, need to learn a lesson from the Iranians who are protesting a stolen election.....just like Bush's elections in 2000 and 2004. I was shocked that Americans did not take to the streets like we did against the Vietnam War. But NOT AGAIN!!!!! I can not promise that we will be sheep anymore. I know that I won't. I will pull out an old "love" t-shirt, stretch it over my now fatter body, scream in the streets, and hope that others will follow or even lead. All elections won by Reptilians should be protested until it can be proven that the election was won fairly and legally.

    I see no difference between the religious/conservative right in America and the taliban. I see no difference between Ahmadinejad and Bush.
