Is it possible that liberal America--at least a part of it--is beginning to realize they got what they voted for?
In this great op-ed in the Tribune, syndicated columnist Rick Horowitz reminds Obama supporters that they argued during the campaign that the "real war" was in Afghanistan, not Iraq. That Bush's Iraq war made us "take our eyes off the ball." And that candidate Obama was making big noise about shifting the focus to where our military ought to be focusing: Afghanistan.
Now that Obama has decided to implement an Iraq-style surge there, some liberals are beside themselves, feeling betrayed.
Too bad. Can't have it both ways.
