Anti-surge comments off Obama's Web site
[QUOTE]Anti-surge comments off Obama's Web site

When U.S. President George Bush ordered the surge in January 2007, Obama, a U.S. senator from Illinois, said he wasn't persuaded the additional military personnel "is going to solve the sectarian violence there" and would have the opposite effect. Recently, however, he acknowledged the surge helped reduce violence but said he was still is of the opinion that political progress hasn't been made.
Media outlets noticed Tuesday that Obama's campaign Web site no longer listed the surge as part of "The Problem" among defense issues included on the site, the Los Angeles Times reported.
[B]An Obama spokeswoman said the deletion was part of a site update to "reflect changes in current events," that includes a new section on the rise of al-Qaida violence in Afghanistan. [/B]
[QUOTE=Come Back to NY;2632897]only an obama groupie would equate whitewashing previous statements (opps....I'm sure to be called a racist on that one) with "acknowleding his mistakes"...:shakehead[/QUOTE]
I just think you are making the wrong argument....
You have a hard-on for trying to find a flip-flop.....
No nation building was a flip flop too...right? NO NATION BUILDING!
Let's go build a fuqing nation. In fact, let's go build a fuqing nation my heart attack prone vice president said would be a "quagmire" to occupy in 1994. And when it ends up being a quagmire like he predicted, let's blame the idiotic democrats.
