Obama A Novice, Showing No Real Change

Since President-elect Barack Obama’s victory over John McCain, people from around the U.S. and the world seem to have transmitted messges to him via the media.  Today, a voice from the heart of Tehran….


A senior Iranian cleric described President-elect Barack Obama on Friday as a novice who was adopting old U.S. tactics of “deception and fraud,” underscoring Iran’s skepticism about prospects for change in U.S. policy.

Some Iranian officials have said Iran would “wait and see” before judging how Obama would act in office, but the president- elect’s call for Iran to stop part of its disputed nuclear work has drawn an uncompromising line from Iran.
