When it helps you politically, of course!

NewsBusters pointed out this ugly contradiction:

According to a tally by The Associated Press, at least 314 U.S. soldiers died in Iraq in 2008, down from 904 in the previous year.

The Chicago Tribune reported [that] Chicago closed out the year with 509 homicides, an increase of about 15 percent over 2007. . .

Obama, of course, has characterized U.S. involvement in Iraq as a “complete failure” and advocates the withdrawal of our military.  If Iraq’s a total failure, how does Obama view what’s taking place in his own hometown?  Should America stop sending millions, possibly billions, of dollars in assistance to what is obviously a losing effort?  It’d be a good question for the mainstream media to pose.

What, the MSM ask Obama a real question?

That really is a lot to ask, isn’t it?

And if you’re wondering where I came from. . . .

Jason recently invited me to join you all here at PD and I’m thrilled to be aboard. If you want to get to know me, I’ve been writing a blog or two or three since 2005, but I’ll leave “me” at that. I look forward to our beautifully political relationship.
