Continuing to demonstrate that their editorial writers have much more of a clue than the NYT’s, the Washington Post publishes another editorial criticizing Obama’s position(s) on Iraq.
In an age where so many in the mainstream media have demonstrated how far in the tank they are for the Democrat nominee for president, it’s so refreshing to see at least one mainstream source out of Fox News being willing to take The Chosen One to task, especially on the defining issue of our times.
In related news,Â the Usual Suspects are flipping out over the following comment made by McCain about Obama:
This is a clear choice that the American people have. I had the courage and the judgment to say I would rather lose a political campaign than lose a war. It seems to me that Obama would rather lose a war in order to win a political campaign.
Liberal Joe Klein, normally a relatively calm voice in the face of leftie outrage, is leading the charge against McCain, calling McCain’s comments a “meltdown”:
This is the ninth presidential campaign I’ve covered. I can’t remember a more scurrilous statement by a major party candidate. It smacks of desperation. It renews questions about whether McCain has the right temperament for the presidency. How sad.
Ben Smith, thankfully, providesÂ some much needed contemporary and historical perspectiveÂ on the whole “issue”Â here in a must-read.
I’d like Joe Klein to explain Obama’s position if he believes it’s not as McCain suggested.Â What else is one to make of someone admitting that the surge has produced positive results on so many fronts, yet at the same time argues that he still does not support it?Â This has got to be the most mind-boggling, stupid position Obama has taken on any issue to date.Â Klein’s taking offense to the way McCain characterized it does not change that fact.
