New McCan't Ad

I'm not going to link to it or upload it here, as it's just a steaming pile of McManure. He superimposes an Obama "quote" over a shot of Iranian soldiers, suggesting that Obama believes that Iran poses no serious threat to the U.S. Fear-mongering at its worst. The Obama quote is so far out of context as to show just how far the old man will go to win.

Sullivan found the full Obama quote. Read it below, and, if you wish, go to YouTube and find the offensive ad.
"Strong countries and strong Presidents talk to their adversaries. That's what Kennedy did with Khrushchev. That's what Reagan did with Gorbachev. That's what Nixon did with Mao. I mean, think about it: Iran, Cuba, Venezuela -- these countries are tiny compared to the Soviet Union. They don't pose a serious threat to us the way the Soviet Union posed a threat to us. And yet we were willing to talk to the Soviet Union at the time when they were saying, 'We're going to wipe you off the planet.' And ultimately, that direct engagement led to a series of measures that helped prevent nuclear war and over time allowed the kind of opening that brought down the Berlin Wall."

Sounds pretty presidential to me.
