All right well a lot breaking news president -- things are that he is troubled by the Iranian situation but says it's really -- to Iran to determine its leaders.
Because -- I wanted to land side a lot of ranting raging from the folks who claimed that he didn't -- it's like tens of thousands of protesters gathering in Iranian capital.
All of them demanding that the government overturned that suppose the landslide win a four armored.
Mom and undated supreme leader -- -- a lot of commanding.
Already calling for investigation of potential fraud in this presidential vote and all of this on the NATO oil prices tumbled about about fifty about.
So someone is clearly word which brings us to the former Virginia governor George Allen.
Here to stay patient.
Tests that stuff.
But it runs about us the whole thing I mean right.
Below what's in our best interest because got a guy isn't much -- of the phantom now.
-- this this is not this is not a contest between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson -- These are this is a narrow band of individuals that they Ayatollah say can be on the ballot they have a theocracy.
In Iran the reason oil prices dropped distinct functions as far as oil and energy prices.
He's number one -- supply and demand of the others the strength of the dollar and the dollar.
Is pretty strong these days relative to other currencies.
Answer because of that -- -- the oil prices fell actually the unrest in Iran probably would have them if it wasn't for that could be falling further.
The the other reason people are concerned about.
What's gonna happen with the oil production on as the Iranian leaders recognize that they have those resources are blessed to have them and they music unlike our country.
Which anytime somebody wants to use our abundant coal or explore for our -- low oil yeah of course and -- -- Everywhere if these we always ask governor it.
They -- very real to me they seem pretty angry to me in a country can't seem to get a handle on and then they just grow and they faster and it's wonder then that means -- they get.
I think it's healthy.
I think it's healthy minded it's early but they shoot them there advocates as well as it did that says a lot about their government today is the -- the magna Carter was signed and 1215.
And England and so -- you know I love history.
It's not like to listen at which it's not good at any rate the point is is that what they have.
Now fortunately the people in Iran is the Internet so they can communicate they have access to information and ideas that theocracy is not going to be able to.
Limit people's -- and their belief in there and their access to information and to organize and so.
While they may have cheated and held on to power where they're favored.
Person I'm talking about the Ayatollah as a -- and perhaps.
No one's really running the show -- absolutely believe so I think if they switch is that we have to have a new election -- evidence of cheating that's -- saying that the theocracy controlling things -- and that's not.
How close are we need to this country you know -- Around this thing -- -- I think that that the government has so much power there that'd be hard to believe that Iran would disintegrate.
It made it either tribunal whenever -- -- -- greater freedom I got to go out and I just -- -- I just have a military analysts on earlier today on Fox News was telling me.
The military has great.
Relations with the people in the country and met with the people turned on the leadership the military would be in an odd position.
Turning on the people it loves and who loves Billiton and fluids is that.
The split here I'm wondering if that's split these protesters.
-- trying to take advantage.
It may or may not I think it's I think I don't know for sure is undoubtedly -- -- -- -- -- on the -- that you.
Upon event well this is this is what's going on now on that -- people don't but the the results are credible the people of Iran don't think they were credible.
Here's what I think we ought to be doing we can learn from Ronald Reagan.
Ronald Reagan when he stood up to the Soviet Union.
That time Sharansky said he was in the -- -- and he got strength from that I was on the young America's freedom.
Baltic cruise last year -- we're talking to people in Lithuania and Estonia and Poland.
And they said when Ronald Reagan would stand up for for the advancement of human freedom and individual liberty.
Those folks even though they -- repressed.
They knew that outside of the Soviet Union people knew that they were fighting for freedom so I think that regardless of this election.
It would be good to see President Obama say we're on the side of those who want to have greater individual freedom.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The maneuvering.
You're standing for broader bigger principles of individual freedom freedom of religion freedom of expression for men and women.
The advancement of personal liberty those -- the sort of things that we're on the side of those folks whether they're in Iran whether there in Iraq whether there and Afghanistan or Pakistan.
Or anywhere in the world those of those are fundamental human right freedoms and it be great if the president said.
-- on the side of those who are wanting to advance liberty and justice.
Real quickly is -- -- Katrina happened what got in I think the more people know about it just like to cap and tax scheme the less they like it and saw I think we ought to be proposing more individual responsibility who have health savings accounts don't -- Governor particularly -- -- guy you do not want to get into a Trivial Pursuit.
