Sen. John McCain says the president isn't talking tough enough about the disputed presidential election in Iran.

The Arizona senator says President Barack Obama needs to speak out about what McCain calls Iran's "corrupt, flawed, sham of an election."

President Obama's 2008 Republican opponent also says that the U.S. needs to support the Iranian people in their struggle against "an oppressive, repressive regime." McCain adds that Iran's people should not have to face four more years under Iran's hardline leader and the country's radical Muslim clerics.

Meanwhile, Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar says it would be unwise for the United States to get any more involved than it is. He says the Iranians need to be allowed to work things out, because "when popular revolutions occur, they come right from the people."
