This is just amazing, because anyone who knows anything about Iraq knows that if we would have left before the surge, Iraq would have spiraled in to
ultimate chaos. It was the surge that convinced the sunnis to join us to fight AQ and drive the bad guys north and east. To the point that they are a
much smaller threat now. The fact Obama says he wouldn't support this if he could go back, shows that he has o clue what hes talking about. Leaving
Iraq at that point or any point before the job is done, only serves our enemies. Just look at how Somalia went when we left.
Trust me, My brother is a Marine in Ramadi and at this time in 2006 that place was in a constant state of urban combat. Since the surge, the place as
been completely quiet. There was a single car bomb when he got there back in April, but sine than its been quiet.
Apparently, MSNBC's David shuester thinks nobody cares about surge success. Its like I've always said about liberals in the media. If reality
doesn't pan out their fantasy's, they simply make it up in their head. To David shuester, we were supposed to have already lost that war. Since we
haven't, he will simply blow it off and dismiss it.
he things people will do for love. Take David Shuster. So eager is the Obama inamorato to cover for his man, he's willing to sacrifice all
semblance of reason. Faced with the implacable fact that Obama was wrong in opposing the surge, Shuster has been reduced to claiming that Americans
don't care about the surge's success. Shuster made his descent into abject sycophancy on today's Morning Joe. The jumping off point was a clip
from an interview of Obama by ABC's Terry Moran [Brent Baker has the full report on the interview here].
TERRY MORAN: If you had to do it over again, knowing what you know now, would you support the surge?
OBAMA: No, because, keep in mind that-
MORAN: You wouldn't?
OBAMA: Well, no, keep in mind, these kinds of hypotheticals are very difficult. You know, hindsight is 20/20. But I think that, what I am
absolutely convinced of is that at that time, we had to change the political debate because the view of the Bush administration at that time was one
that I just disagreed with.
After a clip was aired of McCain hammering Obama on his opposition to the surge, Shuster slipped on the flippers and goggles.
EDIT: I find it ironic that he sees the "bush way" as "narrow minded and not looking at Iraq and not focus on the broader issues".
The fact is, its Obama that is being narrow minded. He wants to please his left wing supporters, so he wants to get out in 16 months. What affect will
that have on the success we have made? He doesn't care,, because hes narrow minded and not looking at broader issues.
