Senator, you are no Henry Kissinger

Barack Obama put words in the mouth of former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger at Friday's foreign policy debate in Oxford, Mississippi. Barry said Dr. Kissinger, a McCain advisor, advocated talking to Iran and Pres. Achmadinejad at the presidential level without preconditions.

John McCain's responded, Henry Kissinger has been my friend for 35 years, I know Henry Kissinger. Henry Kissinger would never say, 'Sit down and talk with Achmedinejad without preconditions'. It was vaguely reminiscent of the Benson/Quayle debate. I was waiting for, 'Senator, you are no Henry Kissinger'.

When McCain challenged him on that point, Obama said, "Let's take a look."

Okay, let's.

The Weekly Standard's The Blog tonight has this reaction from Henry Kissinger to Barack Obama's ludicrous remarks about what he, Henry, thinks,

Henry Kissinger believes Barack Obama misstated his views on diplomacy with US adversaries and is not happy about being mischaracterized. He says: "Senator McCain is right. I would not recommend the next President of the United States engage in talks with Iran at the Presidential level. My views on this issue are entirely compatible with the views of my friend Senator John McCain. We do not agree on everything, but we do agree that any negotiations with Iran must be geared to reality."
Oh, so very sorry, Barry. Bitch slapped again. That's gotta hurt.
