FLASHBACK: Obama Says ‘Nuclear Option Not What Founders Had In Mind, Will Poison Washington’ (Video)
It wasn’t that long ago that freshman Illinois Senator Barack Obama spoke out against the “nuclear option.”
Senator Obama told the chamber in 2005,
“The nuclear option was not what the Founders had in mind. It will poison Washington.”
But that was in 2005.
Today he said, “Enough is enough.”
