Better he should have made a chintzy hotel commercial

One (almost) term Senator Barack Obama wants to invade Pakistan - a teetery and besieged US ally in the War on Islamofascism. An ally, moreover, with a nuclear arsenal.

Nicely done, sport. Hillary will have a ball with this one.

Have you ever even looked at map of the region and considered the logistics? Could you even find the Waziristan EconLodge with Travelocity? Did you even once consider the effect on Pakistani politics? Obama: Not Ready For Prime Time - Ever

It is a nice followup, though, to your idea that we should not be concerned about a new round of "killing fields" in Iraq. Genocide OK

Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama said Thursday the United States cannot use its military to solve humanitarian problems and that preventing a potential genocide in Iraq isn’t a good enough reason to keep U.S. forces there.
And it fits right in with your commitment that as President of the United States you will meet with the most amoral thugs of our time to remind them they will have to take responsibility for Iraq when we bug out on your timetable.
Obama said one of his first orders of diplomacy in the Middle East would be to "send a signal that we need to talk to Iran and Syria because they're going to have responsibilities if Iraq collapses."
Barack, I don't think "responsibilities" means what you think it means, for foreign or domestic purposes. I don't think you understand the term "president," either.

I am curious why you mentioned the chintzy commercial? Was that Obama on that one Comfort Inns commercial or was that just someone who loked like him?

It was just someone who looked like him. See https://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=10942892&postID=2867000793810062639

I mentioned the commercial because I had already speculated on whether it was Obama

...and considered doing the commercial a better choice than his ideas about invading an ally in possession of nuclear weapons.
