Remember when Bush voters mocked Obama's plan for launching strikes on al qaeda targets in Pakistan?
Try again. The Pakistani govt. knew, They just don't get to know what the targets are beforehand. The NY Times jumped the gun again.
Ooops it always sucks when you jump the gun when trying to pit the spin on something.
You must understand that the Democrats have been right on every issue for the past 8 years. The GOP are just very clever at spinning the conversation to make the Dems look wrong and then ultimately the GOP adopts the same ideas as their own.

The Republican Plan For 2008 Begins Today

Its difficult to watch Democrats play checkers while Republicans play chess with Iraq. Its particularly difficult on Memorial Day as more Americans and Iraqis die. But the Republican Party has been playing politics with Iraq since the day after the Supreme Court installed George W. Bush in office in 2001, and they have no intention of stopping now. They may have borrowed some techniques from Richard Nixon, but they have no intention of repeating his mistakes.
The political calculus being pursued by Karl Rove and the Republican Party with regard to Iraq and the 2008 elections is a simple four-step process:
1. Shift ownership of the downside of the war and occupation of Iraq to the Democrats.
2. Begin to wind down American involvement in the occupation of Iraq no later than mid-2008.
3. Claim victory and get out of direct combat in Iraq by the early fall of 2008.
4. Win big in the 2008 elections by having won a war.
We warned the country that we were headed to and/or in a recession and the GOP denied it until January 2008. Too late.
We knew the housing crash was coming and you waited too long. Mission accomplished. The rich made a fortune, the poor got fucked and the banks got bailed out by the US tax payers.
I'll say it over and over again. The GOP want to privatize profits and socialize the losses.
America, wake up!!!
We were right about Iraq, Afganistan, the middle class suffering, global warming, stem cell, GOP spending, etc.
What were the Republicans right about? The surge? Give me a break.
Try to reel yourself in , bobo---the megalomania is kicking in.
So, if you, Bush, and Dilloduck knew where Osama Bin Ladin was in the pakistan border region, you wouldn't land a missile on his ass until you had gone through diplomatic channels to notify the Pakinstani government.
I disagree. I think Obama does too. There may be instances of actionable intelligence where we should put a bullet through someone's head as quickly as possible.
Of course they outta blow up his ass if they havent already--I just disgreed about Pakistan not knowing.
Depends on if you want him dead or alive.....
By the way, it's super easy for a presidential candidate (or anyone for that matter) to make a statement and then take credit for something the president did....
Just because your personal preference of a presidential candidate favored that tactic, doesn't mean that he gets all the credit and gave Bush the idea.
I'm not a big Bush fan either, but I also don't play this political partisan BS.
