Bush Afraid To Speak to Iranian College Students

Of course this does not surprise anyone. 

George Bush is afraid to speak to any audience other than a hand picked list of his supporters.  If he avoids the NAACP and the Urban League do you expect him to speak young Iranian students who might question His meaning of "democracy" ? 

And don't expect any better from the GOP Presidential Candidate front-runners.  They are all afraid to speak to a predominantly minority debate audience.

This is the political party that has vowed to keep us all safe from terrorism!


Iran college asks Bush to speak

An Iranian university has invited US leader George W Bush to speak following his Iranian counterpart's hostile reception at a US college last week.

"We're not taking it too seriously," said a White House spokeswoman.

She said Mr Bush might have considered the invitation if Iran allowed freedom of expression, did not have nuclear ambitions, and did not threaten Israel.

Columbia University's head last week introduced Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as a "petty and cruel dictator".

The head of Ferdowsi University in Iran's second city of Mashhad - one of the country's oldest universities - said Mr Bush could answer students' questions about the Holocaust, terrorism and human rights.

"This is what President Ahmadinejad did, despite the lack of respect shown towards him," said Ferdowsi University president Alireza Afshour, according to the government daily newspaper Iran.
