To ensure the new leadership of the minority party in Washington does not look racist, they have created a new, unnamed position with unknown responsibilities for South Carolina Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.).
I am not kidding. This morning on Morning Joe Congressman James Clyburn (D-NC) tells the MSNBC crew that Obama may not get the troops out of Iraq in 16 months. In fact …. well
You are just going to have to watch it to believe it. I did … 3 times before I posted it because I could not believe my ears.
Update: Ed over at Hot Air picked up on this Friday morning.
Remember now these are the same Democrats that hammered George Bush for 6 years. They demanded he set a timetable for withdrawal. They made it a campaign issue. Remember Obama’s promise to remove the troops in 16 months?
Also remember this is the same James Clyburn who told the Washington Post, if the surge worked “Now that would be a problem for us (Democrats).”
