"Our president will start a war with Iran because he has absolutely no ability to negotiate. He's weak and he's ineffective. So the only way he figures that he's going to get re-elected, and is sure as you're sitting there, is to start a war with Iran."

-Trump speaking on Obama

@smeg if he manages to suck all the energy out of the left protesting the war instead of protesting to impeach, or campaigning to defeat him in november, then he wins

@bamfic maybe. But motivated voters also tend to turn out.

@bamfic @smeg Here's another way it's a win for Trump. Either Iran does nothing significant and Trump turns out to be a hard-ass foreign policy genius, or Iran does something bad and anyone who doesn't rally behind the president in this time of crisis is a traitor.

@bnmng @smeg True. I've been there. It was the most terrifying thing about being an American between 2001-2005.
