Giving credit where it's due
History was made (last) week when President Obama made a speech without referring to the Bush administration in any way.
Speaking to Marines at Camp Lejeune, Obama said that a sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq is achievable in the near future. Of course he gave no hint as to why.
Interestingly, the left-pleasing one-liners about the foolishness of our efforts in Iraq that propelled Obama into the Oval Office have apparently been purged from the teleprompter. I'll bet someone in Texas is smiling.
