Old position: The surge won't work
New (old) position: The surge may or may not work, I just meant it wouldn't work-work, you know, how you can like a person but not like-like that person, you know?
Judgment. Bear in mind, Obama never actually analyzed the surge's chances of working. It was pure politics that drove him to declare it was futile to attempt the surge, because only that predicate -- futility -- justifies his policy of Unconditional Surrender (surrender in the wrong direction, of course).
If there were any hope of success in Iraq, he couldn't argue that we must Unconditionally Surrender post-haste no matter what the circumstances. So pure political expediency and not his vaunted "judgment" led him to declare defeat before our troops had their say about it.
And now he looks somewhat, shall we say, inexperienced and reckless for having done so.
So the record must therefore change.
He always believed the surge could work, apparently. And so he chose to oppose a chance at victory for... um, what reason now?
Obama lied, people died.
They said there was no hope of military progress.
But there was military progress. So they claimed that military progress was irrelevant (in a war -- ?), and what they always meant was there was no hope of political progress, which is the only thing that matters (again -- in a war -- ?).
Now there is political progress emerging, quite predictably, from military progress.
There next claim will be that military and political progress are irrelevant, but what really counts is cinematic progress, so if the Baghdad film community doesn't pony up an Arabic language Raging Bull or at least a Bull Durham, the situation is hopeless.
Sweeeeeet! Another great proposal from a Barack Hussein Obama adviser -- I expect Obama will soon express his "disappointment" with this adviser, too, and we'll soon be told he was merely an "unofficial adviser" Obama barely even met.
The idea? Well, gee -- if you want to get Iran to give up its nukes, shouldn't we start by demanding that Israel give up its nukes first?
Hey, why not give up our own, too? I'm sure we'll see some of that vaunted "goodwill of the Iranians" shortly thereafter.
The naivete here is astounding.

Why the Dems think this crew is ready for prime-time is beyond me.
Mass psychosis, perhaps?

Must have spent all his time noodling with Wes Clark and that other rocket scientist Sanchez.
And people think W is living in a "bubble". Obama's bubble is a reinforced concrete hermetically sealed bunker fitted with a special "cone of silence" over his recliner.

They're really not interested in disarming our enemies. They're interested only in disarming the real enemies, Israel and the United States.
Of course. Please, please, please don't help hire this guy as my husband's Commander in Chief. Please.

I have to give the nuke adviser credit, because this is an...um...unique perspective on Israeli conventional forces:
Cirincione is optimistic that Israel with its vast and superior conventional forces could be encouraged to incrementally reduce or even eliminate its nuclear capability, perhaps starting by shutting down its production reactor at Dimona," one reviewer of Cirincione's book notes.
Okay--superior. But vast? WTF?
THIS is Obama's A-team?

Obama is their darling because he makes them feel like they just came in from the cold and their Mommy handed them a cup of hot chocolate.
The facts prove Obama is a dangerous blithering idiot, but facts don't taste like hot chocolate.

He's such an awful candidate, the only possible way he has any chance is because the GOP is so incredibly incompetent, cowardly, and weak.

Axlerod is a mother fucking tool from the slum world of Chicago politics - this guy would sell his own mother if need be. It comes as a no surprise that this tool would like to weasel out for his even more weaselly boss.
As some one pointed out, the guy who is living in a bubble now is Obama.but why would he come out of the bubble when his tools in the media (Russert,Matthews, Dobberman) are ready to ejaculate at every word he speaks !

Seriously though, I'm sure these are all trivial associations, none of which ever had any impact on Obama, his thought processes, or his moral compass. We can, of course, extrapolate here a bit here and need also accept that if these extensive and extended associations had no impact on Obama, then neither did his education or any other activity of which he has partaken in his adult life. IOW, his brainstem is disconnected from body and reality and, consequently, wholly qualified to be a cardboard cutout.
That is what approximately half, perhaps more, of what the nation wants.

>"Israel should give up its nuclear weapons to ensure Iran halts its illicit nuclear program, argues an adviser on nuclear issues to Sen. Barack Obama."
It is only presumed that Israel has nuclear weapons.
Israel is not a signatory to any international nuclear treaties or conventions on weapons or nuclear energy.
Israel has never admitted to possessing ANY nuclear weapons and it has never been proven that Israel actually has any.
Now we know why Israel has never admitted to possessing nuclear weapons, if indeed Israel actually has nuclear weapons.
If Israel doesn't admit to having nuclear weapons, Israel can't be disarmed of it's nuclear weapons by a nutter like "President" Obama.

I don't think Jimmah's opinion on the matter of Israeli nukes is going to be taken too seriously when it was uttered at the annual literary Hay Festival in Wales.
In addition to opining that, "Israel has at least 150 atomic weapons in its arsenal. " former President Carter also described Israeli treatment of Palestinians as "one of the greatest human rights crimes on earth".
Carter said of Israel, "One of the greatest human rights crimes on earth is the starvation and imprisonment of 1.6m Palestinians,".
Not really the kind of man that should be considered unbiased and "in the know" about Israel's weaponry, IMO, beans or not.
