Yes, he's spending his political capital, all right. How much longer before the well runs dry?

Remember the new Dems meme: We always supported the Afghan War; it was the 'right' war; Iraq was the bad one.

Poor fools. Do they really believe that we have the convience of a "do-over" in Afghanistan? When are we, as a country, going to stop believing in the myth of "American Exceptionalism" particularly when it comes to the issue of warmongering? The whole American spirit of "Can we fix it? Yes we can!/Do-it-yourself" barely works at Home Depot, let alone in nation-building.
