As always, Professor Althouse  is elequent:
I guess we’re not supposed to think about how Obama wanted and still wants to give up on the Iraq war. Surely, if he’d been there in 1948, he would have said the Berlin airlift is hopeless. He thought the surge was hopeless.
As alway, Ace  is not:
Are you somehow implying that Captain Bullshit says one thing and does another?
With respect to this, Jake Tapper :
Shortly after 6 pm Central time — just a few hours after Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, gave his speech in Berlin, which his campaign insisted was not political — his campaign manager, David Plouffe, sent out a fundraising solicitation using the speech to raise campaign cash.
BO credits the Berliners for keeping hope during the dark days of the Berlin Air Lift . Personally, I’d credit the United States Air Force.
