Stay Home. Er, No, Wait!

You had one more question, and I'm not sure I remember it. Was it North Korea?

Q Whether or not you believe that the U.S. dropped a nuclear weapon on Hiroshima and Nagasaki -- it was right?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: No, there were three sets of questions, right? You asked about North Korea?

How pathetic. In fact, though, it's probably just as well Obama didn't say what he really thought. In his speech on nuclear proliferation in Prague, Obama at least suggested that Truman did the wrong thing by bringing World War II to a decisive end:

[A]s the only nuclear power to have used a nuclear weapon, the United States has a moral responsibility to act.

If Barack Obama can't stick up for the country he represents when he goes overseas, he should stay home.
