Then Senator Barack Obama, May 18, 2008, on the campaign trail in Oregon:
“They don’t pose a serious threat to us… If Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they wouldn’t stand a chance.”
He based this gem of foreign policy reasoning on the observation that they are a “tiny” little country.
Guess he never factored in waiting for the Mahdi, dramatic advances in computer chips & GPS guided technology and how the whole smack is one hell of a lot cheaper and easier to get now than it was in the 1980′s (When the Soviet Union loomed large, which he cited as the last time we faced a real threat from a real country.)
But… Annie… He’s super-smart so he couldn’t possibly be this facile in his understanding of the world, right? Plus, he said this waaaaay back… in… 2008…
I swear to God you cannot make this stuff up.
Do I need to even bring up what would happen in Palin or Cain said this?
