Iran is just a small country!

Does anyone else find Obama's Iran policies confusing? I am open to hearing from any Obama supporters on this issue. In May 2008 he said “Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, these countries are tiny, they don’t pose a serious threat to us.” Then yesterday Obama said “A nuclear Iran would pose a grave threat and the world must prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. I will take no options off the table” in dealing with Iran. " So is Iran a threat or not? I mean, Iran still poses the same threat it posed in May when Obama said that they weren't really a threat. And will he still speak to Iranian officials without preconditions? And what will he say next month in front of a different crowd, in a different location? As far as I can tell, ever since becoming the official democratic nominee he has started adopting positions that Clinton was criticized by the left for advocating.

Apparently, Larry Elder wants to understand Obama's current positions as well. Read his post here. Thomas Sowell has a few good questions as well. Read his editorial here.

Thanks for the update, I don't get it otherwise! Haven't been on the net in awhile. How well is Obama doing in popular opinion???? I'm nervous!!! He's so... scary!

Well the polls are very close, with polls yesterday stating that McCain is gaining ground on Obama in four key states, CO, MN, MI, and I cannot remember the other state for some reason. So we'll have to see how Obama's European tour impacts the polls.

Additionally, 75% of Americans are now for immediate drilling, so it will be interesting to see what Obama will call for with regard to the energy issue.

Anyway, stay out of trouble nerd. And remember that nothing is finer than a gold miner. :)
