The Iraqi people have the Screaming Eagles to thank

At a press conference today, Barack Obama insisted, “I think what the American people want more than anything is just commonsense, smart government.” Which one, commonsense or smart? Because smart ain’t all that common.

He continued, “They don’t want ideology; they don’t want bickering; they don’t want sniping. They want action, and they want effectiveness.” Really? Action and effectiveness are all very well, but I actually want some ideology, some sniping and especially some bickering or, as I like to call it, democratic debate.

Meanwhile, Bush went to Fort Campbell, KY, to talk in the general direction of some troops.

“I’m honored to be with the Screaming Eagles of the 101st Airborne -- (applause) -- the Night Stalkers of the 160th -- (applause) -- the Green Berets of the 5th Special Forces Group”. Um, the Night Stalkers?

FABULOUS! “I’m proud of those of you who not only serve our nation by wearing a fabulous uniform...”

UM, THANKS?: “The Iraqi people have the Screaming Eagles to thank.”
