Popcorn sales are soaring across the nation because Obama will give a live Oval Office speech tonight on the U.S. victory in Iraq.
I’m disappointed that Obama will not be giving the speech after climbing out of a jet wearing a flight suit, like George W. did with his “Mission Accomplished” speech in 2003.
I expect that Obama will have at least half a dozen Montana-sized howlers in his speech tonight.
But will he out-BS Bush on Iraq?
Has anyone seen betting odds on this proposition? It will not be easy, considering that Bush spent 6 years shoveling hokum on Iraq.
On the other hand, Obama has embraced most of Bush’s follies. Perhaps he can rise to this challenge as well.
