      President Obama implored the Iranian regime in Tuesday's press conference to pursue a "peaceful path" to resolve the election dispute that has thrown the country into chaos, saying it's "not too late" for the government to do so and engage with the international community.

      Obama also said the United States is "appalled and outraged" by the regime's crackdown on protesters, but that his administration is taking a wait-and-see attitude.

      The president dismissed concerns that he's not speaking out forcefully enough in support of the protesters, saying the Iranian people can "speak for themselves."At the same time, he used tougher language than he has in recent days, saying, "I strongly condemned these unjust actions."

      He also pushed back on GOP criticism from Congress as well as criticism in the media, saying he has a presidential responsibility to ensure security and that he's not on a "24-hour news cycle."

      What do you think of Obama's approach to the Iran crisis?
