Laugh if you will, but this is exactly the kind of reliably crazy shit that keeps me going back to RedState.

Here is what Barack Obama said last night:

It’s enough to say that for the next six years, the Iraq war drew the dominant share of our troops, our resources, our diplomacy, and our national attention — and that the decision to go into Iraq caused substantial rifts between America and much of the world.

Though filled with other assertions and outright lies that Bush dropped the ball in Afghanistan, Obama was rather respectful.

What kind of pathological liar would claim that Bush dropped the ball in Afghanistan? Doesn’t anyone remember when Bush captured Osama bin Laden and defeated the Taliban?

Let’s face facts: Afghanistan was practically on its way to being the next Switzerland when Bush left office. But right after The One was sworn in, he took his eye off Afghanistan and started projecting weakness. The result? Taliban Zombies are running rampant over the entire country and spilling over into Pakistan, where there are nuclear weapons and lots of fresh brains.

Yep, only a dishonest partisan hack would hold George W. Bush responsible for the current state of Afghanistan.

…I got this note from Joe Biden tonight about the Obama policy in Afghanistan:

It’s a clean break from the failed Afghanistan policy of the Bush administration, and a new, focused strategy that can succeed.

Graceless, tasteless, and an outright lie.

Screw Biden. The Bush administration’s Afghanistan policy was a huge, freaking Mission Accomplished.

If B. Hussein hadn’t bowed to the Japanese Emperor, Osama would be rotting in Gitmo, the Taliban would still be dead, and the Afghans would be watching reruns of “Gossip Girl” by now.
