Obama defends tour, says McCain shifting on war - Yahoo! News
What do you think?
Of Course McCain is shifting, The Surge worked, and now we can get out.
Hardly the same as saying "30k troops will not help, in fact it will increase violence", and then saying "I always said the surge would reduce violence" Now is it.
Or how about going from "Iran is a tiny Nation that poses not threat to us" to "Iran is a grave threat"
Or How about going from "FISA is illegal and unconstitutional" to VOTING FOR IT.
I would think Obama would not want to play the "changing positions" card anymore. After all he is the new KING of doing just that.
The surge worked? No doubt the surge helped, but finding a political solution is what worked. Once the Iraqis themselves turned against AQ, that is what worked.
What I think is I'm kinda tired of hearing about people shifting their postions on anything; especially, a war where everything changes minute to minute.
Obama has shifted his position as well. Big deal. I'd be more afraid of someone who DIDN'T.
The surge created the environment for that political solution Kirk, who do you want to credit for it, The people who were for the Surge or the ones who was against it? Oh never mind I already know your answer.
Now lets get out of there, and go win in Afghanistan!!
