Kristol Says Bush Might Bomb Iran If He Thinks Obama Will Win

If there was a website for warmongering porn, Kristol would be the webmaster. He's fantasizing about this a great deal I'm sure. He must spend hours upon hours with sweaty palms and tired fingers surfing the net for hot---new--nekkid---bomb Iran porn. Is it free, Bill?

Kristol. I think honestly, if the president felt John McCain were going to be the next president he would think it more appropriate to let the next president make that decision than do it on his way out. I do wonder with Sen. Obama, if president Bush thinks Sen, Obama win does he somehow think that, does he worry that Obama won't follow through on the policy...

WALLACE: So, you're suggesting that he might in fact, if Obama's going to win the election, either before or after the election---launch a military strike?

Kristol: I don't know. I think he would worry about it. On the other hand, you can't, it's hard to make foreign policy based on guesses about election results...

As usual he's ridiculous. Obama will be strong on National security and the fact that these discredited conservative punkits still get to voice an opinion is frustrating all by itself. We should ask William the Bloody where that WarPorn chat room is... A bunch of warmongers have been speculating on Bush's plans to attack Iran for quite sometime.

Think Progress:

The claim that Obama's potential election could force Bush's hand also isn't new. Earlier this month, far-right pseudo scholar Daniel Pipes told National Review Online that "President Bush will do something" if the Democratic nominee won. "Should it be Mr. McCain that wins, he'll punt," said Pipes.

Both Kristol and Pipes apparently agree with President Bush's claim in March that McCain's "not going to change" his foreign policy.
