The time-lag factor affects everything. Much of Obama’s foreign policy toward Iraq was formed when it was widely perceived as a disaster and Afghanistan was seen as the ‘winnable’ war, and we are now in a situation where the two theaters may have changed places
From tax increases to losing the Iraq war, much of what Obama “promised” makes even less sense now than it did when he “promised”.
I hope he flip-flops on taxes. I hope he lets Petraeus finish up Iraq and turn the tide in Afghanistan. I hope he decides touching the 3rd rail of gun control isn’t for him any longer. Wouldn’t it be nice if his nose grows a mile long as he actively supports Israel in shutting down Hamas? My list of conniving “only to get elected’ lies could be a mile long. If only!
We need a conniving liar for President and we may just have elected the right guy!
