Obama to cut funds for Iran democracy?

The budget proposal laid out by the administration zeroes out funds used to promote democracy in Iran in the fiscal 2010 budget, according to NewsMax. Meanwhile the President has still failed to support the protesters over the brutal regime, instead making a short statement about the 'tenor' of the rhetoric.

Meanwhile Obama spends more time for a Stephen Colbert spot than on the subject of Iran. Its now been a week and the world is waiting for some kind of actual statement on the issue. Countries like Germany, UK and others have been outspoken in support of the peaceful protesters while Obama sits on the fence.
