This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is
fighting, and never use the word "victory" except when he's talking about
his own campaign.
However, Obama used three words I didn't hear from the Republicans:
When John McCain said we could just "muddle through" in Afghanistan, I argued for more resources and more troops to finish the fight against the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11 and made clear that we must take out Osama bin Laden and his lieutenants if we have them in our sights. John McCain likes to say that he'll follow bin Laden to the gates of hell — but he won't even go to the cave where he lives.
Addenda: From Comedy Central's election blog:
From Sarah Palin's speech:
This [Obama] is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting, and never use the word "victory" except when he's talking about his own campaign.
That one didn't seem like much of a challenge. From Obama's July 15th Speech on Iraq:
In fact, true success in Iraq -- victory in Iraq -- will not take place in a surrender ceremony where an enemy lays down their arms.
And later in the same speech:
I want Iraqis to take responsibility for their own future, and to reach the political accommodation necessary for long-term stability. That's victory.
I guess Palin can't use Google any better than McCain can.
And they've also got a list of other words (like George W. Bush) that Palin didn't say.
