letter in Daily Local News, 5/29/08
I got a kick out of the Linda Chavez column in the Daily Local News last week in which she attacked Barack Obama on Iraq. She criticized him for the content of his speech the night of his victory in Oregon and for not citing the article in the New York Times regarding our successes in Iraq.
Interesting that she’s attacking him for the “facts,” when the article in the New York Times appeared in Wednesday’s issue – and his speech was on Tuesday, the day before the article appeared.
We who have actually read his policies and his books and know of the incredible potential of an Obama presidency are aware of what he has done and will do a number of amazing things, but I don’t think any of us have said he can see tomorrow’s newspapers before they are published.
I also noticed she missed a chance to give credit to the one politician in this presidential race, besides Ron Paul, who was right about Iraq from the beginning. But I guess I’m not surprised since, as Stephen Colbert said, “reality has a well-known liberal bias.”
