B. Hussein once again proves he isn't ready for prime time

WASHINGTON (Map, News) - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama came under fire Tuesday for saying that U.S. troops in Afghanistan are "just air-raiding villages and killing civilians." The junior senator from Illinois made the comment Monday at a campaign stop in Nashua, New Hampshire.

"We've got to get the job done there," he said of Afghanistan. "And that requires us to have enough troops so that we're not just air-raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous problems there."

The comment drew a rebuke Tuesday from the campaign of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

"That is a very troubling remark on so many levels," said Romney spokesman Kevin Madden. "Most importantly, it's emblematic of Senator Obama's lack of experience for the job of commander-in-chief. But it's also an entirely inaccurate condemnation of the efforts of the men and women of the United States military who are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan."

First of all, good for Mitt. He is the first Republican politician that I've heard outright condemn B. Hussein for his slander of our troops in Afghanistan. On Hannity's show today Sean repeatedly gave Newt Gingrich the chance to slam Obama and Newt ducked every one of them. Next Hannity gave Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson the chance to unload on Hussein and all she would do was say that she was sure that he had misspoke.

What the hell is wrong with our Republicans? Do they want to keep Hussein in the race in the hopes that he'll hurt Clinton?


Captain Ed tells us that the MSM is already circling the wagons around Hussein.
