The Obama honeymoon seems to be over . . . .
The evidence for this is that an editor for the Boston Herald doesn’t think he apologized for saying the lives of 19 year olds snuffed out in Iraq were wasted. As opposed to, you know, rich and well-lived. The Boston Herald, mind. And an editor who wrote this. Clearly, he was this close to being won over to Obamania!
It’s like I keep saying; these debates are academic. If we’ve still got 120,000 to 150,000 troops in Iraq by November 2008 Obama (or any Democrat) could punch a soldier in the face and win the presidency. If we’re drawing the numbers down, any of the first-tier Republicans can win. That’s it. This whole mau-mauing didn’t even scratch Obama… unless by November 2008 we’re obviously winning. If we’ve obviously lost the war, Obama will get credit for recognizing that thousands of lives were squandered for a heap of shit.
