Barack Obama, Reporting for Duty
Wow, a bona fide pissing contest with Hillary! It is almost like watching a sorority pillow fight--you know neither one of them really mean to use our big, bad armed forces--but it is just so...thrilling for each of them to just say the words...
And my the feathers do fly, don't they... :
In a monumentally lame attempt to prove his tough guy cred Barack Obama trots out his cunning plan to invade a sovereign nation in defiance of it's leader, who is more or less an ally.
"Let me make this clear," Obama said in a speech prepared for delivery at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. "There are terrorists holed up in those mountains who murdered 3,000 Americans. They are plotting to strike again. It was a terrible mistake to fail to act when we had a chance to take out anleadership meeting in 2005. If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will."
The excerpts were provided by the Obama campaign in advance of the speech.
Obama's speech comes the week after his rivalry witherupted into a public fight over their diplomatic intentions.
First of all I don't believe a single word of it. He would not try to do that and he knows full well and good that if he wins he will have a Democratic Congress who damn sure isn't going to do it. The cold-bloodedly cynical way the Dems play with war and the military is saddening. They see it as a flag to wave to show that they will not immediately start appeasing, sipping mint tea and formalized lying in formal wear. They care less about the millions of Iraqis who would die as they make sure to pin an L on W. I don't have any love for the Republicans, but I have a healthy and growing disgust with the Democrats. Nice pander Cakeboy.
