The administration does something right

I hit the Obama administration pretty hard here so I want to acknowledge something they did right today:

U.S. diplomats walked out of the U.N. General Assembly Thursday as Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad delivered a fiercely anti-American speech, attacking the U.S. as an “arrogant power” ruled by greed.

Good for the administration, a public rebuke to Ahmadinejad is well deserved.

A cynical person might say it’s because of NY-9 but I think that’s irrelevant, the right thing is the right thing and I don’t care why it’s done.

One thing I would like to point out from the article:

Ahmadinejad also attacked the United States for its history of slavery, accused it of causing two world wars and using a nuclear bomb against “defenseless people.” He further said Washington was guilty of imposing and supporting military dictatorships and totalitarian regimes in Asia, Africa and Latin America

Exit question: How are those accusations any different from our liberal academics in colleges all over the United States, and if it is proper for the Obama administration to walk out of the UN when those accusations are made there, should student walk out of their classes when they are made here?
