Barack Obama proved why he is no different than any other presidential candidate when he apologized for saying soldiers lives have been “wasted” in Iraq:
[Obama] said the war "should have never been authorized, and should have never been waged, and on which we've now spent $400 billion, and have seen over 3,000 lives of the bravest young Americans wasted.''
Fair enough. I would say the same if I thought the war should not have been authorized.
But Barack wants to put his butt behind the desk in the Oval Office.
Begin tap dancing:
“What I meant to say was those sacrifices have not been honored by the same attention to strategy, diplomacy and honesty on the part of civilian leadership that would give them a clear mission."
So what he meant to say made absolutely no sense at all. Congratulations and welcome to the “I want to be President” club.
Obama is a spineless weasel. No guts, no spine, no balls. He’s so damned anti-war yet he doesn’t have it under the left nipple to say that lives have been wasted in what he calls a mistake.
How can it not be a waste of lives if we went to war on manipulated intelligence and outright lies?
Waste, misuse, squander, throw away, and desecrate: All synonyms and all perfectly fine words if you believe the Neocons lead us into a war under fall pretenses.
But Barack doesn’t have the guts to make the statement and defend it, to speak truth to power.
This one incident shows him to be a gutless weasel who’s unfit to sit in the Oval Office.
