Can Brand Obama sustain equity?
Brand Obama's built on language jugglery. Of course, the liberal media choose to play blind and the leftists can't get it. Really, they can't.
Note Ralph Peter's take on Obama's 'promised' Iraq pullout.
'Forcefully delivered, his speech to the Marines served up more waffles than the International House of Pancakes. Consider his big sound bite: "Let me say this as plainly as I can: by August 31, 2010, our combat mission in Iraq will end." What does that mean? Will the 50,000 troops he intends to leave in Iraq, the trainers and maintainers, be forbidden to defend themselves? Are they just going to hang out? If terrorists or the Iranians skunk us, are we just going to ask for more? The enemy gets a say, too. The situation on the ground will determine when combat operations end. Obama's just going to call them something else.
In the immortal phrasing of Ol' Bill, it depends on what the meaning of "is" is.
To me the most interesting aspect to Brand Obama is the question of sustenance? How long can the Obama equity survive?
Will wait. Will watch.
