When it comes to showing support for thousands of Iranian protesters — critics say President Obama is not doing enough.

Republican Congressman Mike Pence has introduced a resolution that would "speak a word of support for the people of Iran."

He says he doesn’t think the U.S. should endorse the opposition candidate; but rather show support for protesters who are "risking their lives for free and fair elections."
