Live televised debates offer lesser-known candidates their chances to snare the limelight by saying something everyone will remember.
Unfortunately for former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, the comment he made at Tuesday night’s Democratic president debate that sparked the most response on Twitter was one he would sooner forget.
The subject was Syria. O’Malley was contrasting his position with that of rival Hillary Clinton.
“I believe that, as president, I would not be so quick to pull for a military tool. I believe that a no-fly zone in Syria, at this time, actually, Secretary, would be a mistake,” he said.
“You have to enforce no-fly zones, and I believe, especially with the Russian air force in the air, it could lead to an escalation because of an accident that we would deeply regret,” O’Malley added.
“I support President Obama. I think we have to play a long game, and I think, ultimately — you want to talk about blunders?” he then asked.
