Poor, poor losers on the right. Doing their best to paint dark, ominous shadings across Obama's call to finally -- once and for all -- take the fight to the al-Qaeda strongholds and root them out of their caves in Pakistan.
In other words, Obama is being skewered for committing to finish the job President George Walker Bush promised to do when he lied us into this hellhole of a war in Iraq over five years ago.
But you'll notice that none of the hypocrites on the right thought it was a bad idea when the White House stated back on July 19th that President Bush was not ruling out the idea of invading Pakistan for the very same purpose.
Q Can I change the subject to Pakistan? Does the President have full confidence in Musharraf, particularly given the violence there from the Islamic --
MR. SNOW: Well, I think -- look, President Musharraf has put his life on the line and has been a very important ally in the war on terror. It's also clear that Taliban and al Qaeda, in the northwest territories and the federally administered tribal areas, have begun to put on operations that threaten the government of Pakistan itself, which is why President Musharraf, having tried one approach, in terms of dealing with the tribal leaders, is now going to have to be more aggressive and is being more aggressive moving forces into the region to deal with the security problems there.
Q Does the President rule out any U.S. military activity in Pakistan?
MR. SNOW: We never rule out any options, including striking actionable targets.
Q I'm sorry, including --
MR. SNOW: Striking actionable targets.
Striking actionable targets, like al-Qaeda strongholds -- just like Obama.
The trained and coached liars on the right won't admit to the fact that what Obama has suggested is nothing more than what the White House had already put on the table a few weeks ago.
Obama wants to finish the job George failed to do. Is it the right's patent dishonesty that's showing, or is the fact that the White House Spokesliar Tony Snow said that invading Pakistan was a viable option a whole two weeks ago, and the short attention-span fast food workers who populate the right wing blogosphere can't remember what their beloved White House was espousing just 14 days earlier?
14 days... that's a long time when your modus operandi is to forget everything that's happened in the past because of the horrorific images of the lives you've destroyed by electing and supporting the Republican Crown Prince of military blunders and diplomatic buffoonery.
Obama proposes to finish the job America wants finished, and the liars on the right hate him for it.
