You’re the Same Rhetoric

From Firedoglake:

From the department of really stupid messaging.

But although Mr Obama is now reported to have ruled out troop cuts or a major scaling back of the US effort in Afghanistan, it remains unclear whether he will approve a significant escalation to an increasingly unpopular war.  Mr Obama told key members of Congress that he would decide on a course of action with a sense of urgency – but that not everyone would be pleased.

“The president is going to make a decision – popular or unpopular – based on what he thinks is in the best interests of the country,” White House press spokesman Robert Gibbs insisted.

Remind you of anyone? Oh, right.

I have always acted with the best interests of our country in mind. I have followed my conscience and done what I thought was right. You may not agree with some tough decisions I have made. But I hope you can agree that I was willing to make the tough decisions.

That’s right, Dubya would have none of that governin’ and war makin’ by pollin’ crap.  How’d that turn out for him, President Obama?

To this excellence I can only add: YOU’RE THE SAME RHETORIC.  Maybe the rest of the left will wake up to the fact that electing Democrats after Republicans is, in fact, not real change.
