Question mark

How come?

How come some people heard Barack Obama promise ‘peace’, when I heard him promise maintenance of forces in Iraq and, perhaps more importantly, escalation of war in Afghanistan?

I mean, seriously, guys, what Barack Obama were you listening to during the campaign?

I may not have liked my Barack Obama as much as the people who listened to the other Barack Obama liked that one, but at least I’m not disappointed with him. The Barack Obama we’ve got is pretty close to the one he promised us.

Poignant

Ron Reagan played a clip of Ted Kennedy declaring himself a liberal, but I recognized the words. It would have been more touching if Reagan had known and pointed out that Kennedy was quoting his brother, Jack.
