UPDATE at 4:53pm: Here is an excerpt of Ron Paul’s floor speech, in which he explains why he voted “no” on the resolution:
“I have admired President Obama’s cautious approach to the situation in Iran and I would have preferred that we in the House had acted similarly.”
Obama’s silence is deafening as the Basij militia continue to kill Iranian protesters. Absolutely deafening. The most he has said is that he’s “very concerned.” And Paul admires that? French President Nicolas Sarkozy has said more than that! There’s nothing to “admire” about how Obama has handled this situation. Nothing.
Original story here. The vote was 405-1, with Ron Paul casting the only “no” vote.
