When Will The Right Start Blaming Obama For Iraq?

It only took propagandist Michael Goldfarb twenty-two minutes:

Obama has inherited victory in Iraq. Bush has done more than, as McGurn quotes Biden in early 2007, "keep it from totally collapsing...[until he could] hand it off to the next guy." Now rather than retreat in defeat, our new president must manage to withdraw American troops without undermining their success. It will be a tremendous challenge, but the press will not be able to blame Bush if security deteriorates in Iraq after Obama gives the Joint Chiefs their "new mission." The victory in Iraq is Obama's to lose.

The one thing to remember about the neocons: their shamelessness is their only means of survival. And amnesia - constant, disciplined, carefully organized amnesia.
