The McCain Campaign released an ad on their website and some small cable buys in order to convience voters (through the media helping the campaign by repeating the lies) that Barack Obama doesn’t understand world events. In his ad called “Tiny,” the McCain Campaign combines distorted Obama quotes with scary images of the middle east in order to isolate Jewish American voters.
ABC’s Jake Tapper does a nice job of showing the lies that the desperate McCain Campaign is looking to spread and the facts that what Obama said is actually practical, thoughful, pragmatic and rational.
First read the quote from Obama and then watch the ad.
“Strong countries and strong presidents talk to their adversaries. That’s what Kennedy did with Khrushchev. That’s what Reagan did with Gorbachev. That’s what Nixon did with Mao. I mean, think about it. Iran, Cuba, Venezuela — these countries are tiny, compared to the Soviet Union. They don’t pose a serious threat to us the way the Soviet Union posed a threat to us. And yet, we were willing to talk to the Soviet Union at the time when they were saying, ‘We’re going to wipe you off the planet.’
“And ultimately, that direct engagement led to a series of measures that helped prevent nuclear war, and over time, allowed the kind of opening that brought down the Berlin Wall,” Obama continued. “Now, that has to be the kind of approach that we take. You know, Iran, they spend one-one hundredth of what we spend on the military. If Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they wouldn’t stand a chance. And we should use that position of strength that we have, to be bold enough to go ahead and listen. That doesn’t mean we agree with them on everything. We might not compromise on any issues, but at least we should find out other areas of potential common interest, and we can reduce some of the tensions that has caused us so many problems around the world.”
