A President Under Siege

He's facing very strong, vocal opposition from his opponents, but now even members of his own party are renouncing his stubborn stay-the-course rhetoric and dangerous policies. The public is resentful over the vast sums of government money he's made available to companies owned by his political cronies, while he can't seem to find a way to help his own people. He turns a deaf ear to all criticism because he believes that he answers to a Higher Authority. Yes, you guessed it - I am speaking, of course, about a President under siege: President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran, so much in the news of late. (Links here and here.)
