League of American Voters’ Dick Morris, fresh off his anti-health care reform ad campaign targeting Democrats, suggested on Fox & Friends this morning that President Obama “might be the first anti-American president we’ve ever had.” But first, Morris conjured images of millions of Americans “dying in the streets coughing their lungs out” after a biological attack.
Asked by Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson about “this very confusing non-proliferation treaty” that would limit U.S. use of nuclear arms, Morris said:
It’s the most outrageous thing, I think, I’ve ever heard a president of the United States say. He’s literally saying that if an American city were gassed or hit with a biological weapon and millions were dying in the streets coughing their lungs out, or in hospital wards dying of an incurable disease, we would not use nuclear weapons to reply? It is totally absurd. It’s beyond belief that a president of the United States would say that and it shows that Barack Obama might be, might be the first anti-American president we’ve ever had.
