"Less taxes and more war," he said, smiling. He said the U.S. should "bomb the hell" out of Iran because the country threatens Israel.
Asked by the interviewer how America would pay for a military confrontation with Iran, he said the U.S. should take the country's resources.
"We should plant a flag. Take the oil, take the money," he said. "We deserve reimbursement."
A few hours after the interview, an unknown woman helped herself to Schwartz's resources.
The theft happened at the Hotel Ivy, a luxury hotel in downtown Minneapolis. (The Colorado delegation was housed at the Four Points Sheraton, several miles away on Industrial Boulevard Northeast.)
The theft occurred early on Sept. 4, hours after Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin gave her speech accepting her party's vice presidential nomination. A police report said Schwartz told officers he met a woman at the bar and took her to his $319-a-night room.
"Victim reported suspect made victim drinks, told him to get undressed, which is the last thing he remembers," a police narrative said. "Upon waking, victim discovered money, jewelry gone; total loss over $120K."
I must admit I think this new cover of the New Yorker which so many are deriding is perfectly wonderful. I laughed my ass off when I saw it. Perfect satire in my opinion. I'm a big fan of Obama but his campaign should one up the New Yorker by appearing in this garb on Saturday Night Live. I'd love to see and it would probably seal the election if he and Michelle were to appear like this on SNL.
