Petraeus as President

Not Petraeus for president. Brent Budowsky makes the case that Petraeus acts with the authority of a commander-in-chief as congress postures and preens and does absolutely nothing at all.

In testimony today Petraeus said both that progress in Iraq is significant and that the condition is so fragile that future troop withdrawals be put off for at least 75 days.

Meanwhile bellicose cheerleaders Lindsey Graham and Creepy Joe™ Lieberman worked diligently to conflate Iran, Iraq and a militant Islamist threat against the US.

And the endless war goes on endlessly.
