Obama: “That's the truth in Iraq.” (Updated)

Sen. Obama:

I know the toll of this war. And what I know is, what our troops deserve is not just rhetoric; they deserve a new plan.

Gov. Romney and Sen. McCain clearly believe that the course that we're on in Iraq is working. I do not.

And if there was ever a reflection of that, it is the fact that Sen. McCain required a flak jacket, ten armored Humvees, two Apache attack helicopters, a hundred soldiers with rifles by his side, so he could stroll through the market in Baghdad just a few weeks ago for a photo-op.

That's the truth in Iraq.

UPDATE: which a McCain aide replied (paraphrasing): "Obama wouldn't know the difference between an RPG and a bong." which Bill Maher replied: "In case you don't know, an RPG is a rocket-propelled grenade and a bong is what McCain uses when he describes how well things are going in Iraq."


“I Think He’s Crazy”.
Reagan On Giuliani

No wonder the GOPers love Saint Ronny RayGun. Compared to the current crop of idiots running the Republican Party, Reagan seems utterly reasonable and wise.

McCain lives in an alternate universe. Rudi is just plain weird, approving of choice for women so strongly he chose a new one three times -- probably because he could expand his wardrobe. And Romney never saw an issue he couldn't get on both sides of.

I just can't imagine him ever tolerating the bile that spews from Limbaugh, Hannity, O'Reilly, or Mitt Romney's boyfriend, Ann Coulter.

No wonder they are pushing for Fred Thompson. They must figure he could at least play the role of POTUS, just like their favorite Ham, Reagan.

Isn't that Reagan quote rich?

It meshes nicely with what New Yorkers have known for years: that Giuliani is nuts.

Here's the thing about all the Republican candidates (and this includes Scooter Libby's defense fund chairman, Fred Thompson): They all represent the status quo. They all want to stay the course.

If you like where we've been for the last 6 years, vote Republican.

But if you think it's time for a change in direction, vote Democratic.

P.S. I noticed that even the Bush-friendly Rasmussen poll has potus' approval rating at a sustained stretch of low-30's, a first for them.
