Why does Obama still need to go to Iraq if General Petraeus says “that if Obama visits Iraq later this month, commanders there will outline for him, in detail, the dangers of withdrawing too quickly” and Obama will hear that “top commanders remain concerned that the gains are reversible and that withdrawing troops too quickly would be a mistake”? Can’t Obama conserve some gas, decrease his carbon footprint and just read ABC’s coverage ? (There, Obama could also read a helpful blow-by-blow of how he’s NOT changing his mind on Iraq –until he changes his mind on Iraq.)
Give credit to Steve Schmidt on one count — he got his candidate on all the Wednesday nightly network news shows and his message out on Iran.
And what is the answer to McCain advisor Randy Scheunemann’s question about what Obama wants to give the Iranians that the Europeans already haven’t forked over?
You mean consumers reduced demand for gas when prices went up? Who’d have thought!
If they could find remotes, cellphones, and keys, that would be something.
So glad that a network of small donors, regular Americans are going to finance Obama’s campaign. What? $28,500 a pop, you say. And there were “the John Singer Sargent and Mary Cassat paintings and the funders were left behind to munch on filet of beef with a mustard-cognac sauce, a potato nest and so on, all washed down with sundry American and French wines”? Hey, he better be nice to the rich folk — after the last month he may need the big-wigs.
Here’s one for the “least surprising headline” category.
His PAC was fined, he didn’t pay all his taxes or workers’ compensation premiums and Jesse Ventura may not run to split the Norm Coleman vote. Is Al Franken just a big, fat idiot? If the Republicans can’t keep that seat, they should pack up shop.
