Of course, I wrote a while ago about his reversal on ending the war but it seems it now hits the larger consciousness – so it’s worth noting.

As NYT gingerly puts it, He MIGHT Refine Iraq Timeline (or as the Iraqi PM said

Mr. Obama might not differ all that much from Mr. McCain. Mr. Zebari said that in addition to promising a visit, Mr. Obama said that “be a Democratic administration, it will not take any irresponsible, reckless, sudden decisions or action to endanger your gains, your achievements, your stability or security

Of course, this was over there – and what happens in Iraq stays in Iraq. So, what was his rationale for “refining” his raison d’etre a candidate?

Mr. Obama said such criticism was misguided, saying: “My position has not changed, but keep in mind what that original position was. I’ve always said that I would listen to commanders on the ground.”

That’s a new one! I am pretty sure I heard him in debates saying that it’s a CIC decision to make and Bush cannot shift responsibility to the commanders on the ground. But than again, that was Bush. This is Bush 2.0

And let’s revisit Bill Clinton’s “racist” questions

“While Senator Obama campaigns on his plan to end the war, his top advisers tell people abroad that he will not rely on his own plan should he become president. This is the latest example of promising the American people one thing on the campaign trail and telling people in other countries another. We saw this with NAFTA as well,” Clinton said.

Oopsie! Bill knew what he told Iraqis! What a racist!

and earlier signs of this

Here’s the NY Sun piece, for the record.

So how many combat brigades is he going to withdraw, and in what time frame? Does he even have a clue? Yeah, I know the answer to that: It’s “hell no.”

And funny thing, it seems McCain made him do it

Now, why is it that Senator Obama wants to sit down with the President of Iran, but hasn’t yet sat down with General Petraeus — the leader of our troops in Iraq?
