Let's play a game

By Creature

Which timid liberal said the following regarding Iran?

And I don’t want America to be in a position where we urge people in the streets and then watch them die. I’d rather be a little bit prudent and prepare for the long-term where we really can provide concrete assistance.

a) Barack Obama
b) Hillary Clinton
c) Jimmy Carter
d) None of the above

If you said... (d) you'd be right.

The limp, timid, quote above comes from neo-con John Bolton, the leading proponent of bombing the crap out of the same people he now wants to embrace. Of course, in the breath before, Bolton contradicts himself by calling the president "timid" and questioning why Obama is "abandoning the people in the streets and not providing any possibility of concrete assistance to them," but, hey, what's a little contradiction when there's an opportunity to bash the president. For John Bolton, I guess, "prudence" is in the eye of the beholder.
