The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

"They call him Flipper. Flipper. Faster than lightning."

"No one you see, is smarter than HE."

Sometimes, there are even liberal writers inside Fox News. Just take this article title about Obama's presence on The O'Reilly Factor:

Obama: Surge Succeeded Beyond ‘Wildest Dreams’


At least however, the writer at least was able to clearly define how Obama flipped like Flipper.

The troop surge in Iraq has been more successful than anyone could have imagined, Barack Obama conceded Thursday in his first-ever interview on FOX News’ “The O’Reilly Factor.”

As recently as July, the Democratic [sic] presidential candidate declined to rate the surge a success, but said it had helped reduce violence in the country. On Thursday, Obama acknowledged the 2007 increase in U.S. troops has benefited the Iraqi people.

“I think that the surge has succeeded in ways that nobody anticipated,” Obama said while refusing to retract his initial opposition to the surge.


See, this is what separates Republicans from Liberals. Americans view the surge as successful for both Iraqi civilians AND American citizens. He never saw it as something that was necessary to route out evil and to protect our country from the terrorists wherever they are. You can imagine his opposition to the surge that led to D-Day Invasion.

"the surge succeeded in ways that nobody anticipated."??? Are you stupid or just ignorant? Only the liberals thought that the surge would fail, or did fail prior to its launch for some.

So, once again, Obama flips. And only accepts the reality long after the effect has ended. Well, he started off fine, but then flipped again and took the lefty liberal road.

However, he added, the country has not had enough “political reconciliation” and Iraqis still have not taken responsibility for their country.

“We have gone through five years of mismanagement of this war that I thought was disastrous...


Ok, maybe he is just stupid by saying this...
But Obama warned against the current U.S. administration lumping radical Islamic groups together.

“They have fueled a whole host of terrorist organizations,” Obama said of Iran, but “we have to have the ability to distinguish between groups. … They may not all be part and parcel of the same ideology.”

Newsbusters have an interesting take on it
http://newsbusters.org/blogs/jacob-s-lybbert/2008/09/02/obama-fox-news-tentative-truce

"As Fox News prepares to interview Barack Obama tomorrow night, during prime time, TV journalist Michael Wolff details a meeting between Barack Obama, Fox News president Roger Ailes, and News Corporation president Rupert Murdoch in which the Fox execs promised to lay off the Democratic presidential candidate.

According to Wolff's telling, this was more than a mere tete-à-tete, this was a full-on diplomatic meeting (initiated at Murdoch's request), conducted only after preparation and with preconditions from the Obama campaign.

The apparent purpose? To smooth things over in the event that Obama defeats John McCain..."

WOW. that is scary. But, Murdoch is Democrat and sort of liberal. So, having him buddy up with Obama is natural as he was buddy with Kerry as well.

As for Ailes, from what the articles implied, Ailes was not too keen on this meeting with Obama except that he is a business man and realizes the business loss if Obama freezes Fox News out.

However saying that, the article is very hard to follow as the writer uses alot of pronouns (he) and I lose who is talking to or about who.

As the writer states at the end... one should hope that Oreilly did not allow his show to be scripted by Obama or Ailes. Might be a good question to ask (as I did not see the episode).

thanks Mongol!
