Governor You-betcha Palin lunged for Obama again today, claiming that Obama tried to interfere with Bush's negotiations on an agreement with Iraqi officials, and cut a “secret deal” with the Iraqi government to stall any changes in troop numbers until the next president takes office. Now, putting aside the fact that the best thing that could happen to this country would be someone following Bush around with a pooper-scooper to clean up his messes, let us notice that even Palin isn’t sure if her own attack is true:
'Obama apparently tried to undermine our government's official efforts to reduce troops in Iraq,' she said. 'If this is a true, again, it is a stunning example of putting ambition above country. To put political ambitions in front of doing what's right for our troops is breathtaking and it is unacceptable.'
Apparently? If this is true? The McCain-Palin ticket isn't even attempting to verify facts before launching attacks, which, of course, is nothing new for them. Their entire effort at painting Obama as a threat relies on eighth grade “If . . . then” statements.
At this point, McCain-Palin’s concern about whether or not Obama is dangerous is about as useful as Chihuahuas during a sitcom – they’re barking even if the doorbell’s just on T.V.
