“If we re-elect Barack Obama, Iran will get a nuclear weapon,” he said. “If we elect Mitt Romney, Iran will not.”
This is the kind of stupidity that is rusting away Americans' opinion of our politics. Even Romney doesn't believe what he said, but because he thinks this will somehow get him into the White House, he says it. Never mind that it's an idiotic statement that is impossible for him to live up to. And it's impossible for him to predict that Obama's administration will see Iran with nuclear weapons.

What is happening when our supposed leaders dumb down the conversation to pre-kindergarten lunacy? This needs to stop. I don't know how to stop it except to not vote for idiots who make idiotic statements.
