The Stopped Clock Strikes Again
Three days ago, the humble idiot responsible for this blog wrote "Even Bush would probably be pushing for a withdrawal [from Iraq] if he were running for President." Didn't take long to get confirmation of that:
U.S. and Iraqi negotiators have reached agreement on a proposal calling for a complete U.S. military withdrawal from Iraq by 2012, the head Iraqi negotiator said Friday.Um, Mr. McCain, I think your criticisms of Obama's plans for withdrawal from Iraq have just been, how shall we say, annihilated? Given the strong support for withdrawal among the electorate, being to the right of George Bush on Iraq policy is not a place any sensible politician wants to be. Oh, wait, that's right - you're a maverick. One again, how's that working for you?
