You Mean Obama Was Proven Right Again?

You know how you can tell a presidential candidate will be a good president? Check how often the opposition whines about what he says during the campaign, and then goes ahead and does exactly that anyway.

Remember when Obama said, during a primary debate, that if he knew al Qaeda was in Pakistan, and Pakistan’s government wouldn’t help, he would go in there and take them out?

Among many others, the Bush Administration and John McCain castigated him for it, and called him irresponsible. They derided his inexperience, and they whines and pissed and moaned about his incredible naivete.

Well, check this out, From NBC: Bush OK’d raids in Pakistan

President Bush secretly approved orders in July allowing U.S. special forces to carry out ground assaults inside Pakistan without approval from the Pakistan government, NBC News has confirmed.

The disclosure, first reported in the New York Times, is certain to further anger Pakistan’s military, whose Army chief said Wednesday that Pakistan would not allow foreign troops to conduct operations on its soil, after a cross-border incursion last week by U.S. commandos.

The new orders reflect concern about safe havens for al-Qaida and the Taliban inside Pakistan and an American view Pakistan lacks the will and ability to combat militants, the Times said.

So, what does this mean?

It means that, of the two remaining candidates for president in 2008, only one had the judgment of a president with nearly eight years experience, and it wasn’t John McCain.

Caribou Barbie; Put Bush in a Dress and Add a Little Loon…

Okay, I don't know about you, but at first I found Caribou Barbie to be a lovable dweeb. Then, as she started speaking, I saw her as a slightly befuddled clown, who was in way over her head. Now, I'm convinced; she's a freaking loon. A complete, unadulterated facsimile of …
