Glenn links to this WaPo hand-wringer about Obama's quagmire in Afghanistan. Their Big Finish:
And it’s little wonder that most Americans favor withdrawing troops as quickly as possible. If it’s evident that the president won’t defend the war, and is focused on “winding down” rather than winning, why should anyone else support it?
Gee, an anti-war President, leading an anti-war party, isn't four-square behind his own effort in Afghanistan. Could anyone have seen this coming?
To be fair, Afghanistan was always going to be tough - it was not christened the Graveyard of Empires on January 20, 2009. Still, Obama's lack of commitment has been obvious for years - certainly the hokey-pokey surge was a clue, as the WaPo acknowledges.
As soon as Barack gets enough Republican cover he will declare Mission Accomplished on his own Operation Manhood (Are You Tougher Than Bush?) and head for the exits.
