Skip to comments.Obama: I'm Concerned About a Loose Nuke Being Detonated in Manhattan

Romney still wrong about Russia, says Obama.
Speaking at a brief news conference in the Hague, President Obama said he's more worried about a loose nuke being detonated in Manhattan than he is about Russia:
"With respect to Mr. Romney's assertion that Russia is our number one geopolitical foe, the truth of the matter is that America has a whole lot of challenges," said the president.
"Russia is a regional power that is threatening some of its immediate neigbors, not out of strength, but out weakness.
"Ukraine has been a country which Russia had enormous influence for decades, since the break-up of the Soviet Union, and we have considerable influence on our neighbors, we generally don't need to invade them in order to have a strong cooperative relationship with them. The fact that Russia felt compelled to go in militarily and laid bear these violations of internationl law indicates less influence not more.
"So my response then continues to be what I believe today, which is: Russia's actions are a problem. They don't pose the number one national security threat to the United States. I continue to be much more concerned when it comes to our security with the prospect of a nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan," said Obama.

I always wonder why some rogue nut cake or terrorist hasn’t set one off also.
Signal of intent.
Donald Rumsfeld is right.
“Decades”? Try centuries idiot.
the solution is to outlaw and ban Islamic practice in the United States , and end all moslem immigration. That would be a good starting point , to prevent the Manhattan eventuality
Considering it could likely be a nuke suitcase bomb made in Russia.. were such a thing to happen.. God forbid. Ouch.
Well, at least De Blasio wouldn’t have to worry about snow removal complaints anymore.
“I’m Concerned About a Loose Nuke Being Detonated in Manhattan,” says Obama at the 9th hole. “Now excuse me, got another round to play.” “But Romney was wrong about me.”
That so called loose nuke you are worried about will actually be "loosed" from a Soviet or Red Chinese intercontinental ballistic missile fired from Soviet or Red Chinese territory or a Russian nuke boomer sub. Don't worry about Omar and his suit case. Worry about Igor or Poo Chung firing off one of their nukes. You have destroyed all of ours, thus we cannot respond.
I guess he isn’t in DC long enough to worry about DC getting hit, or maybe that’s the reason he likes to spend time away...
Off teleprompter, Obama sometimes lets something he knows slip out.
He solidifies his ‘Most Weak Inept Pres_ent to FReedom EVER!!!”
But he said in the past we ‘can absorb’ another attack.
Bammy is a loose nuke sloshing about the gun deck of the White Hut.
What a child. He just had to mention Romney!
Entirely spiteful and Romney of all idiots, really got to him.
Duncehead has no idea what a geopolitical foe is. Russia is in fact the largest. China would be the only possible alternative. Not a terrorist with a nuke.
A loose nuke taken from the Ukraine. Which, btw, we promised to help protect in return for disarming them.
