Another O-bomb dropped on America. Another O-bomb on American leadership. What would he have preferred -- the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans instead? (Don't answer that!)
The very first reporter [from Fuji TV] called on at the joint press conference with PBO and Japanese PM Hatoyama in Tokyo today put the question to Pres. Obama in blunt and explicit terms:
JAPANESE REPORTER: What is your understanding of the historical meaning of the A-bombing in Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Do you think it was the right decision?
Obama took a deep breath, paused . . . and punted.
PBO gave a halting response that utterly failed to answer the question. The
closest he came was to observe that Japan "has a unique perspective on the issue
of nuclear weapons as a consequence of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and I'm sure it
helps to motivate the Prime Minister's deep interest in this issue."
The reporter tried again: "do you believe the US dropping of nuclear weapons on --"
Obama cut him off, choosing to answer an unrelated question on the situation in North Korea.
Will the MSM report Obama's duck and cover?
