Asks Kerry about Iran.
Iran is a huge threat and you can’t just rely on sanctions, notes that threat has grown while Bush was preoccupied in Iraq. Talks about North Korea’s capabilities and notes Emperor’s failure to engage. We were safer before he came to office. We have to join with the Brits and French and Germans and lead the world to crack down on proliferation. Bush slow even in Russia. He wants to take 13 years. Kerry plan is within four. Talks about bunker busters and proliferation. We will get tough with Iran if we have to.
Bush: ‘That answer almost made me want to scowl.’ Naive and dangerous. Claims that he’s following Kerry’s plan. More and more petulant. Almost shouting. We did what Clinton did and it’s wrong it doesn’t work (?).
