The newly elected President of Iran is considered by the nattering classes and the useful idiots in the State Department to be “moderate.” Isn’t that nice?
Of course the definition of the word “moderate” is always left intentionally vague, just as Obama’s personal history was left intentionally vague. It was left for the reader or listener to interpret the word “moderate” for themselves.
Even checking a thesaurus is not really a big help. When you check you find words such as: balanced, compromising, judicious, middle-of-the-road, not excessive, peaceable, reasonable and restrained.
Moderate is such a friendly sounding word. It indicates that the person described as moderate cannot conceivably be “radical”. Why do you think that our main stream media describes people like Lindsey Graham and John McCain as “moderate” Republicans?
Of course Iran’s newly elected president will still be supporting Bashar al Assad in his ongoing efforts to kill off as many of his opponents as possible. He has made no announcement that he plans to withdraw the thousands of Revolutionary Guard troops currently supporting Bashar al Assad from Syria. Iranian Revolutionary Guards are complicit in the deaths of over 100,000 Syrians and others who are trying to oust the Syrian dictator.
Newly elected Iranian President-elect Hassan Rouhani plans to continue pursuing the “peaceful uses of nuclear energy” for his nation.
Kind of makes you wonder just what definition the MSM and the State Department could be using when they use the term “moderate.”
Perhaps it means that under a Rouhani regime, when Iranians kill infidels, they won’t cut off their heads. Yeah, I can see that as being a LOT more moderate, can’t you?
