Obama on the No Spin Zone

So, Obama went on O'Reilly's show.

O'Reilly pressed him on the surge, and why he was incapable of admitting a mistake. Obama finally surrendered to reality and admit that the surge was a total success. Then he gave John McCain a gift and claimed that his vote against it was still correct, because nobody could have seen the success coming. Nobody thought it would succeed! Yeah, I guess our generals, and a certain cowboy boot wearing man from Texas, and a certain Presidential candidate sent off more troops to Iraq for no reason. They knew it wouldn't work, that it would cost a lot of money, and the war was lost anyway, but hell, might as well do something.

Let's be serious- what do you think would happen if Obama said that he made a mistake and McCain was right. It would be a complete shit-show. The lens that the right views Obama is a complete catch-22. For example, Obama picked Biden, who people are claiming is too entrenched in the Washington system. However, if Obama picked a Tim Kaine, it would be someone with no experience. At this point everyone, left and right, in the media and party loyalists are just looking for an opportunity to yell foul- and independent voters are left no knowing how to truly feel. The Greeks would be sad at how our democracy has devolved.

So Obama shouldn't admit he made a mistake because it would reflect poorly on him? The mistake has already been made; he already looks poor. Refusing to acknowledge reality just makes him look worse, and you can't make a mistake without some contrition. It comes with the territory.

He's running for President. He can't let what people are going to say about him scare him from doing what has to be done. McCain admit he was wrong about the war's early state and has been its biggest Republican critic; Hillary's admit she was wrong. Why can't Obama?

This is where Obama should show leadership, not let peer pressure dictate his actions.
