THIS JUST IN: Sen. Obama Apologizes Again for Saying Troops' Lives Were 'Wasted'
Will the MSM please give Obama a break? He has nothing to apologize for. Barack's stance on pulling out of Iraq is intelligent and his blunt comment reflected his sensitivity to the troops that needlessly died for Halliburton. If you read what he actually said, it made perfect sense given the fact that thousands of our troops have died for an unworthy cause:
"We now have spent $400 billion and have seen over 3,000 lives of the bravest young Americans wasted."
Hey MSM, you'd have to be wasted, too, to put yourself on the front lines of this insane war....opium, chesterfields, whatever, but I know that I would have to be smoking plenty of something, too, before ever fathoming the thought of putting on a uniform to go to Baghdad and sacrifice my body and soul to only get my head blown off in the name of this Bush War only to make the Halliburton stockholders rich.
Obama immediately apologized on Sunday, saying the remark was "a slip of the tongue."During an appearance Monday in Nashua, N.H., he apologized again, telling reporters he meant to criticize the civilian leadership of the war, not those serving in the military.
"Even as I said it, I realized I had misspoken," Obama said. "It is not at all what I intended to say, and I would absolutely apologize if any (military families) felt that in some ways it had diminished the enormous courage and sacrifice that they'd shown."
From Australia to The Home of the Brave, cowardly MSM pitbulls have been nipping at Barack Obama's pantlegs for anything they can scratch up -- or make up. On the heels of Obama's announcement over the weekend for his presidential bid, the PM of Australia, John Howard -- who happens to be a fellow Bush-WHACKER, weighed in with a very, very cheap shot, stating that Obama's plan for troop withdrawl would
"encourage terrorists and Al Qaeda would be praying for a Democrats victory in the 2008 US election."
Low blow from Down Under!
