Another word on Pres Obama and Iraq!
As I posted before, Pres BO is the luckiest guy in the planet that he got Iraq wrong.
This weekend, Christian Brose posted Obama's Iraq speech: Brought to you by George W. Bush:
"At the risk of heading into la-la land, I think Obama should have tipped his hat ever so slightly today to President Bush, Sen. McCain, and other Republicans who had supported the surge strategy, naming them and thanking them.
Of course, there's no telling how Iraq would look today had the surge never happened, but it's likely that conditions would be pretty grim and that this withdrawal plan would have the smell of defeat to it, rather than the opposite, as it does."
Why didn't Pres Obama thank Pres Bush or Sen McCain? It would have been honest and good politics!
