This is a clear choice that the American people have. I had the courage and the judgment to say I would rather lose a political campaign than lose a war. It seems to me that Obama would rather lose a war in order to win a political campaign.

But again, while he doesn't actually accuse Obama of wanting to lose the war, he may be going a little too far in accusing Obama of basing his stances on the war on political expediency (and that's a more accurate representation of his argument). He's on the borderline, but I think its a fair attack, just barely.

Sen. Obama has indicated that by his failure to acknowledge the success of the surge, that he would rather lose a war than lose a campaign.

I'm all for getting out of Iraq and Afghanistan as well, but it must be done in an orderly fashion that minimizes the loss of lives and disruption.
