Apparently, Obama gave a speech the other night about Afghanistan. Mind you, I haven't watched a single Obama speech since the '04 Democratic Convention keynote and the Inauguration. That was abuot all I could stand; since then, all I could handle was the occasional clip on TV, or transcripts posted on the Web. From all accounts, it was classic Obama, a rehash of the Iraq "withdrawal" announcement: out of all the reports I saw, two "money quotes" really stuck in my craw, and one of them was that "the tide of war is receding" -- and just in time for next year's election. Who'da thunk it?
