Refuting Obama with his words (part 2)

June 20, 2009 Obama to Iran:

"As I said in Cairo, suppressing ideas never succeeds in making them go away."

I guess that means we no longer have to worry about:

-The Fairness Doctrine.
-Actual debate in Congress
-Debate on the stimulus bill
-Debate on TARP
-Debate on Health care
-Debate on Justice Sotomayor
-Derision of Tea Parties
-"I won."

Why? Because suppressing ideas ultimately won't be successful. And:

"If the Iranian government seeks the respect of the international community, it must respect the dignity of its own people and govern through consent, not coercion."

If it applies to Iran, it applies to America too. Good new Republicans, conservatives, libertarians - your voices obviously count too. Of course it would be easier to believe he meant it for America if it was easier to believe he meant it for Iran.

Previously: This and this.
