Instapundit is running a quote from Dave Winer about President Obama’s position on Iraq and Afghanistan:
“I assumed that because we elected Obama to end the war in Iraq that it went without saying that the war in Afghanistan would be ended as well. Apparently not so.”
Dave should have been paying closer attention. Here is a video produced by MoveOn.org, detailing the specific Obama-Progressive position on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The video is based on then State Senator Obama’s 2002 speech at an anti Bush war rally in Chicago.
At the time, Move On and the Progressives were trying to convince people that they aren’t against all wars, just the Iraq war.
Regardless, Glenn Reynolds is correct when he says, “every promise has an expiration date.”
