ABC News’ Jon Karl asked President Obama about Mitt Romney referring to Russia as America’s “number one geopolitical foe” in 2012, a claim that Team Obama mocked relentlessly. Obama, after some hem-hawing, basically tried to cover his administration’s naivety on Russia by upping the catastrophe ante:
“So my response then continues to be what I believe today, which is: Russia’s actions are a problem. They don’t pose the number one national security threat to the United States. I continue to be much more concerned when it comes to our security with the prospect of a nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan,” said Obama.
That must be why he’s allowing Iran leeway on nuclear enrichment. Great plan.
Obama also said Putin’s invasion of Crimea was a sign of Russian weakness. People with Obama-esque worldviews are why history can’t stop repeating itself.
Possible source of Obama’s latest, greatest national security worry:
President "more concerned about a nuclear bomb in Manhattan than in Russia." Especially uptown, where all his donors live.
