Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, unveiled his comprehensive plans to deal with terrorism this week, he became his Democratic presidential rivals’ collective punching bag.
In an interview with the Associated Press on Thursday, Obama was asked if he would use nuclear weapons to defeat terrorism and Osama bin Laden. “I think it would be a profound mistake for us to use nuclear weapons in any circumstance, involving civilians,” Obama said to the Associate Press. “Let me scratch that. There’s been no discussion of nuclear weapons. That’s not on the table.”
New York Sen. Hillary Clinton criticized his comments at a press conference. “I don’t believe any president should make any blanket statements in respect to the use or non-use of nuclear weapons,” she said. She and Obama had an ongoing fight last week over how to handle diplomacy with rogue countries like North Korea, Iran and Venezuela.
Yes, Hillary. You are super macho. We get it. You also won't promise to talk to our enemies, and you want to ban flag burning, and violent video games. I for one and sick and tired of your triangulation crap.
You have not won the primary yet, but you are running as if you are in the general election trying to peel away people in the middle. Taking the election for granted this early by doing your damnest to piss off the base might be swell if you end up winning this thing, but people like myself will end up voting for you holding our noses.
Who exactly are you impressing with your talk of not leaving nuclear weapons off the table? The only people left excited about using tactical nuclear weapons are watching Pat Robertson, listening to Rush Limbaugh, and are not going to vote for you anyways.
Do you really believe that independents want us to go around nuking people? Well, this ain't the 60's sister. You have really made it past that glass ceiling. You are turning into a real dick.
