....into the Democratic Party. 'Cause trust me, divine intervention is required to make that happen these days.
But if this represents the thinking amongst the GOP leadership, then they have lost whatever marginal support that I was able to muster in the past.
Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele was caught on video at a fundraiser in Connecticut on Thursday raising doubts about the war in Afghanistan.
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) pushed out the video, which shows Steele saying that the war is of "Obama's choosing" and that it is nearly impossible to win a land war in the Central Asian country.
"Keep in mind again, federal candidates, this was a war of Obama's choosing. This was not something that the United States had actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in," he said. "But it was the president who was trying to be cute by half by building a script demonizing Iraq, while saying the battle really should be in Afghanistan. Well, if he is such a student of history, has he not understood that you know that's the one thing you don't do, is engage in a land war in Afghanistan?"
My panties....they done been twisted.
One of the areas where I have been very pleased to support Mr. Obama is his administration's strong support for our campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan. Not unlike his predecessor, there are times when he and his administration could have done a better job. But they have largely stayed the course to victory in Iraq. Hopefully they will do the same in Afghanistan.
