    Yeah.  Sure.  That sounds totally like something that will happen.

    •  Hell yes. This isn't the 1980s anymore. (0+ / 0-)

      Obama ran against the Iraq War and won, beating a big national security hawk who, I've heard tell, was once in the Navy (heh).

      I can't think of a single time when the Republicans have been successful in their efforts to score points off of Obama being "soft on defense."  They've tried, and they've failed every time.  The issue just doesn't work the way it used to.

      Art is the handmaid of human good.
