First, he all but admitted that he was basing his campaign on the Iraq War. Any sane person knows that he’s in the minority there. And it appears that he had a sane moment when he said it.
It doesn’t matter at this point if it’s really going well over there or not, the soldiers are tired of it and the American people are tired of it. It’s hard to keep the momentum of a war when you are fighting people that never attacked you. Good Luck winning with that John Boy.
And from the latest poll numbers….not looking good. Down by 12% to Obama.
Interesting comments by Obama though. He spoke the truth but it’s a road few want to venture down.
“Frankly some of the commentary that I’ve seen which suggests guilt by association or the notion that unless we are never ever going to ask any difficult questions about how we move peace forward or secure Israel that is non military or non belligerent or doesn’t talk about just crushing the opposition that that somehow is being soft or anti-Israel, I think we’re going to have problems moving forward,” he said.
Obama attacking the right in Israel…they aren’t going to like that one bit. Anyone who has ever traveled to Israel knows that most of the people that live there (both Israelis and Palestinians) are moderates but rarely does mainstream America hear about this. The less this position is talked about, the more drawn to extremism both sides are in an effort to be heard.
And of course you have the Kosovo / Palestinian Argument which the Bush Administration quickly responded to.
The United States on Wednesday rejected comparisons between the Palestinian situation and Kosovo, after a senior Palestinian official called for a Kosovo-like declaration of independence.
Kosovo is a “unique” situation, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack told reporters. “It is not a precedent for any other situation around the world.”
Uh, you think it’s because Kosovo benefits the US and the other doesn’t? Yeah, screw precedents! We like to just make things up as we go along.
