Obama Ridicules Cheney
Obama is showing that he is way out of his league. From MyWayNews:
Obama, speaking at a massive outdoor rally in Austin, Texas, said British Prime Minister Tony Blair's decision this week to withdraw 1,600 troops is a recognition that Iraq's problems can't be solved militarily.
"Now if Tony Blair can understand that, then why can't George Bush and Dick Cheney understand that?" Obama asked thousands of supporters who gathered in the rain to hear him. "In fact, Dick Cheney said this is all part of the plan (and) it was a good thing that Tony Blair was withdrawing, even as the administration is preparing to put 20,000 more of our young men and women in.
"Now, keep in mind, this is the same guy that said we'd be greeted as liberators, the same guy that said that we're in the last throes. I'm sure he forecast sun today," Obama said to laughter from supporters holding campaign signs over their heads to keep dry. "When Dick Cheney says it's a good thing, you know that you've probably got some big problems."
Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't recall Blair stating anything along the line that the war in Iraq was a lost cause or cannot be solved militarily, as Obama implies.
Obama is rather funny, as he recently stated that he was sick of the tit-for-tat goings-on in politics, yet here he is, bloviating about the British pulling out a part of their force, even as they announce that they will be boosting their force in Afghanistan and how if Cheney says that is good, then there must be problems.
On the upside, if Obama keeps pushing rhetoric like this, he'll be giving Hillary a good run for her money.
