Bachenshia appears to take Ahmadinejad's rivals to task over their revolutionary bona fides:

Mr. Musavi, Mr. Karrubi, and Mr. Rezai, I've heard you consider yourselves the sons of the revolution??

Mr. Musavi, Mr. Karrubi, and Mr. Rezai, I've heard you say on numerous occasions that you consider yourselves the true followers of the "rule of the Islamic scholar" [Ayatollah Khamenei]??

Mr. Musavi, Mr. Karrubi, and Mr. Rezai, I've heard you call your chosen path the continuation of the Imam's path?!!

Are you not aware of what the leader has said?? He said to obviate destruction, elude lies and blame, circumvent enemies' joy and going the way of Westernization.

Have you actually followed these guidelines, or are they merely your campaign slogans??

What do you expect when you go on with your fibs just to win the presidency and satisfy your materialistic cravings?? Do you consider the people fools or...??
