Joe Lieberman: "You Can't Stay Out of These Things [Foreign Wars Like Libya]... You Have To Take Chances"

What an unserious and casual way to describe a call for war. Joe Lieberman has lost a lot of heft in my view.

Oh, wait, that wasn't Joe Lieberman. That was the suddenly hawkish Howard Dean.

DEAN: I don't think you stay out of these things. You can't if you're the most powerful country in the world . . . You have to take chances.

KLEIN: That's not what you were saying in 2003!

DEAN: That's because we were lied to about what we were doing . . . we were lied to about the WMD.

KLEIN: We had the same situation as we do now, which is insufficent information.

Defending Obama, Dean also realizes: "It's easy to criticize in hindsight."

So these people have now been confirmed as partisan game-players as regards war and the lives of American soldier. Throw a (D) on the war and they're all for it, as suspected.

Joe Choo-Choo Biden: Impeach The President For Launching Unauthorized Airstrikes. That was his position as regards a hypothetical airstrike on Iran, ordered by Bush.

He didn't say "airstrike," he said "war," but at the time, no one was talking about anything except airstrikes. (McCain was the most forward-leaning of most national-brand politicians and sang "bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran;" no mention of boots on the ground.)

But it's different now, of course. The war is branded with a (D) so anything goes.

Oh Dear Sweet Lord: You gotta watch Joan Walsh, suddenly a rootin'-tootin' six-gun-shootin' patriot with a bad case of war fever, saying that Obama's deteractors have no "coherent principle" for criticizing him and are just looking for excuses to "cheap shot" him.

The reason for this outburst is that Matthews & Co. are very, very upset to see Obama's (and their own) words thrown back in their faces.
