“Responsibly”. Remember that word.
Obama supporters who truly believe he’s going to change anything about the war in Iraq are going to be sorely disappointed. When they start demanding troop withdrawals, he’ll hedge and allow that we can’t “responsibly” withdraw while the security situation is unsettled.
The selection of Joe Biden as Sen. Obama’s running mate should be another warning to those who believe a vote for Obama is a vote to end the war. Biden supported the war before it began; he argued for more troops once we were in; and now he rattles his saber against the Russian incursion into Georgia.
Joe Biden is a 35-year Washington insider. Expecting change from a stalwart member of the establishment is naive at best. Barack Obama represents the same old politics in a flashy new wrapper.
