Iraq Is Up For Grabs! Come One! Come All!

No, this is not the post I promised. That will come this weekend. Just a short note to point out that if elected, a President Obama has promised to end the war in Iraq in 2009. As anyone can tell, I am for ending the war. Nevertheless, promising such an immediate timetable tells Iran and Al-Qaeda, that, whatever the situation, "We are out of there! Come on in! Do what you want", because we have already made it clear we won't be there to stop you, though it was our invasion that created the opportunity for you to finally get the prize you have both been denied for years and years. Obama seems to be thinking like a child, in absolutes and for immediate gratification, and at this point the Democratic electorate seems to be like-minded. The broader electorate and even the Democrats will probably rethink this in the general election. Unless we want more Republican mess, and at least 4 more years in Iraq under a President McCain (you can spell a McCain Presidency as W. BUSH II), Hillary and the remaining Democratic Primaries better get back on track!

Though I don't agree that McCain is Bush, your analysis is quite correct. Obama is a foreign policy disaster waiting to happen. He's surrounded himself with foreign policy advisors that have consistently misunderstood the MidEast.

I'm not even sure the electorate will send his wife to the White House as First Lady...what a motor mouth she is!

Hillary is the smart candidate. Perhaps some Divine intervention will stop Obama's messiah express train.
