    Obama seems to be seperating himself and other prominent dems from the fire-breathing liberals... or is it all an act? nevertheless, a very well-written essay and interesting look at the infighting among liberals.

    He's just using a little less fiery speech. He still depends on lies.

    Many believe Saddam had it coming for a number of reasons. Limiting the argument to WMD is an intellectual exercise with partisanship as it's only purpose.

    No one reasonable worries about alienating France.

    Who want's a Fuck France t shirt?

    I agree about France. I think the real WMD is in Syria, Saudi Arabia and Iran (the first two being where iraq's wmd went before we could get ahold of, a failure of planning and execution on our part). Then again, there is that juicy rumor about Russian Spetnaz in Iraq right before the war...

    But EVERYONE has misconceptions about the strategic relationship with France. Most overvalue it, a few undervalue it. It has its benefits, primarily in the Horn Of Africa and the Middle East, where aside from Iraq, the French have been overwhelmingly helpful with intelligence and ideas.

    Needless to say, the French leadership is at odds with America still, the French military, intelligence and police, not so much.

    I just don't see Obama's comments as any meaningful departure from the usual lib spin. It's just SLIGHTLY less bombastic.

    So why didn't he vote to confirm Judge Roberts then? He voted nay.
