Obama: Rather loose a war, than loose an election?

Q: If you had to do it over again, knowing what you know now, would you support the surge?

A: No, because, keep in mind that…

Q: You wouldn’t?

A: Keep in mind… These kinds of hypotheticals are very difficult. Hindsight is 20/20. But I think that, what I’m 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.

So, something that has brought down violence 80% and American troop deaths from 78 to 5 per month – he would still oppose…because he disagreed with President Bush…? Is he saying he would still oppose something that has empowered Iraqis and saved American (and Iraqi) lives simply for political reasons?

Is this a gaffe, distraction, or a moment of clarity?

    Obama would throw his own children under the bus to win the White House! Well thats just about what he did to his children. Obama allowed his children to listen to Jeremiah Wright saying God’s name in vain and didn’t get up and walk out the door! His children mind you, his children listening to Jeremiah Wright comdemning their country. How could anyone vote for a man that would do such a thing? http://xrl.us/nxzjd

    You’re missing the point Andrew! Barack stands for “hope” and “change”. All we need is “hope” and “change” nothing else, just “hope” and “change”.

    What is it with the dems and their catchphrases? Remember the “lockbox” debacle?

    What we need is hope and change; no more.
