Thoughtful

So the people of Iran are in the streets, and the President of the United States is not shooting off his mouth, posturing, and giving the Iranian religious leadership a bogeyman to rail against and use to rally the populous behind.

The right wing may call it timid. I call it cagey, smart, thoughtful and wise.

And thankful to have a President (for the first time in a long time) who seems capable of seeing past polls, avoiding a knee jerk response, and taking the long view.
