Obama caves to the right again: Now, he's "going to visit Iraq and Afghanistan before the November election"
Is there anything we *can't* make him cave on?

Barack Obama doesn't want to engage in any "political stunts." That's why he's not going to visit Iraq to see whether his announced dogma vis-á-vis the U.S. strategy there (Run away! Run away!) is remotely what the doctor prescribed for success; that's why he hasn't convened, and will not convene, his Senate Subcommittee responsible for overseeing NATO efforts in Afghanistan. He already knows what's best in those two countries (apparently withdrawal from one, and an infusion of Arabic-speaking farmers into the other); he certainly doesn't need to see the situations there with his own eyes, or attend hearings about them to hear what experts have to say.
No matter what you say, Barack Obama does not need to travel to Iraq or learn about Afghanistan to know the right courses of action in those two countries. How dare you suggest that he must? He doesn't have to do what you say.
Like I said, Barack Obama's seriously thinking about going to Iraq -- but again, Barack decides what Barack does; stop trying to make him do unnecessary things like actually learn facts before he makes up his mind! That's the trouble with all of you pundits and blogger-types: you're so darned forceful in this meddling with your betters. Can't you learn when to sit down and shut up, and listen to the consistent message that those who rule over you have been preaching?
It's always been the same; your minds is where the inconsistency is! Like I've said this whole time -- have you been paying attention? -- Barack Obama is promising to visit Iraq and Afghanistan before the November election.
Did you really think he wouldn't? You clearly misunderestimate his capacity for caving in.
