Obama mocks GOP’s national security attacks

You go, dude!

[Obama]'s taken to openly mocking GOP criticism of his willingness to diplomatically engage hostile foreign leaders.

The President of the United States, motherfuckers:

"Venezuela is a country whose defense budget is probably 1/600th of the United States’. They own Citgo. It’s unlikely that as a consequence of me shaking hands or having a polite conversation with Mr. Chavez that we are endangering the strategic interests of the United States. I don’t think anybody can find any evidence that that would do so. Even within this imaginative crowd, I think you would be hard-pressed to paint a scenario in which U.S. interests would be damaged as a consequence of us having a more constructive relationship with Venezuela."


"This imaginative crowd" -- sweet! Nice to have a real grown-up in charge again! One with balls!
