Note to Sen. Clinton: It's an Occupation, not a War, and all That Matters is Who Will Finish Ending it
April 10, 2008
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m as cynical about modern American politics as the next guy, but honestly, this is simply too much:
Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said Wednesday she is the only presidential candidate who will begin a prompt drawdown of U.S. troops in Iraq next year.Voters need to understand that itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not about who will start drawing down troops Ã¢â‚¬â€ the military is breaking as we speak and any new occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue will be forced to cut down the number of forces in Iraq Ã¢â‚¬â€ the issue is who will finish withdrawing the troops, and when.
[Senator Hillary] Clinton said McCain is unwilling to withdraw troops, and Obama cannot be trusted to do so.
"One candidate will continue the war," she told an audience at Hopewell High School, near Pittsburgh. "One candidate only says he'll end the war. And one candidate is ready, willing and able to end the war."IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m so sick of this perverse kabuki dance.
