We already know the Obama administration is demonstrably weak in the face of Iran aggression. After all, as CNN recently reported, "Iran already has a missile that could reach the U.S. if it could put it on a ship and move it to within 600 miles of the American coastline."
Though the sanctions imposed on the Iranian regime are the toughest in history, the Obama regime has done nothing to protect us against the threat of the Iranian space program, which can put a rocket on the surface of Mars, if only someone moves it within 600 miles of orbit. Their secret police can beat us with their fists, if only someone places them with 12 inches of our noses.
While this aspect of Barack Obama's appeasing foreign policy is well known, less remarked upon is his cowardice in the face of the Soviet menace.
It's an existential threat well documented by the Romney campaign, which in April warned of Soviet advance in the Arctic as well as the peril facing "Czechoslovakia." Yesterday, Romney foreign policy surrogate Rich Williamson voiced his concern about the only union Republicans are in favor of resurrecting…
A foreign policy adviser to Mitt Romney's campaign warned against policies that would aid "the Soviet Union" Wednesday, making him at least the third person from Team Romney — including Romney himself — to refer to a country that hasn't existed since 1991 in the course of attacking President Obama’s foreign policy…
Williamson was condemning the Obama approach to Syria. He called the country "strategically important to the Soviet Union."
Though Russian policy ranks decidedly low on the list of voter concerns, perhaps the Romney campaign's belligerent security stances will discourage voters who don't want a repeat of the Bush administration's war making. While in America you politicize foreign policy, in Romney's Retroactively Resurrected Soviet Union, foreign policy politicizes you.

As you are no doubt aware, today is a certain Minnesota-Representative-turned-failed-presidential-candidate's 56th birthday. To celebrate, we've drawn up this list of the 56 best things about Michele Bachmann. Don't say we never do anything for you, M-Ba!
1. She enjoys corn dogs.
2. She also enjoys "noodles, cheeses, chicken and bacon."
3. She's tough on Iran and knows our imaginary embassy in Tehran should be relocated to Krypton or Atlantis.
4. There was that one time she dressed up like Princess Leia at a debate. That was awesome.
5. She gets all her facts about HPV vaccinations from random women she meets, unless they happen to be scientists.

Daily Caller editor-in-chief Tucker Carlson on Iran…
"I do think, I'm sure I’m the lone voice in saying this, that Iran deserves to be annihilated. I think they're lunatics. I think they're evil."
It's either annihilation or co-starring on a political talk show with them. Either option seems overly harsh on Iran.
