Ah, us skeptics. So quick to jump to conclusions. Cynically claiming that just because Obama is frantically backpedaling on every significant campaign promise he must not be accomplishing much for the American people that elected him to lead. And just as we’re patting ourselves on the back for our insightfulness, we’re proven woefully wrong. Look at this:
ABC News has learned that the Obama administration has decided to give the war in Iraq — currently known as Operation Iraqi Freedom — a new name.
The new name: “Operation New Dawn.”
Well, bowl me over and call it a hard day’s work! I can’t even imagine how many high level bureaucrats must have been involved with that one. A new name for that sucky old war that he sorta kinda promised to end, but then didn’t and decided he couldn’t, which didn’t stop him from starting another one, even though we couldn’t afford that one, either. But a new name. How come that didn’t have to be a bipartisan decision involving John Boehner and Mitch McConnell?
