    As the OP stated, I am sure his condemnation got a good chuckle in NK.
    Your typical hyperbole aside, what President would have responded any differently in regards to North Korea missile test?

    JFK... The last great president... The last president who represented the spirit of our nation...

    Having said that, I doubt he would have shot it down.

    President Bush would have responded in some manner.
    Possibly a blockade or maybe making it clear any future such launches will be intercepted.
    Thing is those involved would have confidence he meant it and had to be dealt with.



    With Obama those involved have confidence he can be ignored.

    Your typical absurdity aside, why do you want to make this some other Presidents issue; the last time I looked, Obama was President. Obama is the one wanting to disarm the US. Obama is the one who claims the previous US policy was arrogant. Obama is the one who thinks that TALK without substance will lead to peaceful solutions with despots, terrorists and dictators. Obama is the one wanting to shut down Gitmo.

    Hell, if I were a terrorist, despot or dictator, I too would be cheering him on.

    Like I clearly said WITHOUT hyperbole, if your policy is to take NO action, then threatening a despot is going to do nothing more than get a lot of chuckles.

    Carry on.

    1. Please show where Obama wants to disarm the US.
    2. Bush's US foreign policy was arrogant.
    3. The entire worlds foregin policy is based on talk without substance. That's what happens when you want countries to act a specific way but your own tool is talking to them because any assault could lead to a Nuclear war.
    4. Gitmo should be shut down.

    Conformity through fear. It's the Republican way.
