There should be no suspense - this is purely poppycock nonsense…posted by Bill Arnett @ 12:03 PM Permalink …
Then he made an iron vow to get American troops out of Iraq within 16 months. Neither Obama nor anyone else has any clue what the conditions will be like when the next president takes office. He could have responsibly said that he aims to bring the troops home but will make a judgment at the time. Instead, he rigidly locked himself into a policy that will not be fully implemented for another three years.This is from an opinion column from David Brooks of the NYT (I will not link to him and cause our readers unnecessary pain from his poison prose).
If Obama is elected, he will either go back on this pledge — in which case he would destroy his credibility — or he will risk genocide in the region and a viciously polarizing political war at home.
Anyway, it's his usual B.S. column purporting to know just what a democrat needs to say or do to get elected - and it is some serious B.S. And, of course nonsense like this is really going to fool a fool - not!
When Obama began this ride, he seemed like a transcendent figure who could understand a wide variety of life experiences. But over the past months, things have happened that make him seem more like my old neighbors in Hyde Park in Chicago.Damn Obama with faint praise and then let the vitriol begin!
John Judis and Ruy Teixeira have estimated a Democrat has to win 45 percent of such voters to take the White House. I’ve asked several of the most skillful Democratic politicians over the past few weeks, and they all think that’s going to be hard."…several of the most skillful Democratic politicians…" My goodness, that rings as true as, "…an unidentified senior administration official," an, "unidentified White House source," a, "person who is not authorized to release this information," or, "someone in government who isn't authorized to reveal the contents of…" and all the other chickedsh*t mealy-mouthed, weasel-worded, utter nonsense spouted by opinion writers who absolutely must make themselves appear as if they are more knowledgeable, intelligent, insightful, and just as good as plain old-fashioned prognosticators able to accurately see the future.
Snake oil. And slimy. As if Brooks might actually vote for a democrat seeing as how he wants to tell us how we will win or lose. Since pretty much everyone is aware of Brook's political bent, this bit of garbage is doubly ignorant and offensive.
And besides, there is no mystery as to whom the "he" is within this context, "…he will risk genocide in the region and a viciously polarizing political war at home.
george w bush, worst American president and worst world leader extant today.
