Kook Kos Klan: "War? What war?"

How things change among the simple minded "regressive" gang!

"I attended the first YearlyKos convention, in 2006, and have kept up with later ones, and it's safe to say that while people who attended those gatherings couldn't stand George W. Bush in general, their feelings were particularly intense when it came to opposing the war in Iraq. It animated their activism; they hated the war, and they hated Bush for starting it. They weren't that fond of the fighting in Afghanistan, either.

Now, with Obama in the White House, all that has changed. Greenberg presented respondents with a list of policy priorities and asked, 'Please indicate which two you think progressive activists should be focusing their attention and efforts on the most.' The winner was passing comprehensive health care reform, with 60 percent, and number two was passing 'green energy policies that address environmental concerns,' with 22 percent. Tied for eighth place, named by just eight percent of respondents, was 'working to end our military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.' "
Don't worry, Byron. In ten years they'll have history sufficiently rewritten to the point that Iraq and Afghanistan will be regarded as great victories for Obama, a true measure of his fearless leadership.


  1. Why are we still in Afghanistan? Seriously. I haven't paid it much attention in a long time.

  2. With their defeat in Iraq, the puppet masters of Jihadistan have moved their focus back to Afghanistan and Pakistan.

  3. Afghanistan is still hot, elections are bringing out more violence.
    We're here to help them shore up their government and stabilize areas to deny them to the Taliban.
    I'm on a small base in NE Afghanistan, the Taliban make their presence known every couple days, trust me. Rockets, ambushes, IED's, it's still a war here.
    Iraq is pretty quiet these days, George Bush won that war long before November 2008/Obamamania, the mainstream media just didn't tell anyone. Would have looked bad for Obama, ya know.
