Ouch, That Stings!

"Of course President Bush would attack the one candidate in this race who opposed his disastrous war in Iraq from the start. But Barack Obama doesn't need any foreign policy advice from the architect of the worst foreign policy decision in a generation," - Obama spokesman Bill Burton.

George W Bush, in an unbridled act of arrogance (of which he is so proficient) has decided to attack Barack Obama. Of course, Bush knows from inexperience, Bush had no experience of foreign policy to speak of when he took office, just lots of plans to take it easy at Camp David, and look at the mess he made of this once fine country.
I hear the experience argument thrown around a lot recently, and really, no one running for president for their first term has experience being the leader of the free world. What we need to judge them on is there intelligence, not their opportunism. Their judgment, not the insincere apologies for lapses of judgment.
And so, the Obama campaign issued the above rejoinder, the first time anyone with in this campaign has dared to blame the great dictator for the mess he has made. And for that, he gets my respect. And if the Democrats have the good judgment to make him their candidate, he has my vote.

Bush attacked Obama -- say it isn't so!

Things are looking very good for Obama. Great to hear you are on board.

He has my respect. Listening to the right people's opinions is important too, and I believe Obama is level-headed and thoughtful enough to consider what others have to say before making decisions with life changing ramifications - like going to war.

I hope like hell President Obama appoints John Edwaeds as Attorney General specifically to prosecute these criminals all the way to "camp 7" in Club Gitmo.
Waterboarding, anyone?
