Barack Obama has come out and said that he didn't mean to say that he thought all the soldiers who have given their lives in Iraq were"wasted lives" Full quote (from Michelle Malkin):
We ended up launching a war that should have never been authorized and should have never been waged and to which we have now spent $400 billion and has seen over 3,000 lives of the bravest young Americans wasted.His apology?
"It is not at all what I intended to say, and I would absolutely apologize if any (military families) felt that in some ways it had diminished the enormous courage and sacrifice that they'd shown."Sound familiar? Maybe the phrase "botched joke" may ring a bell. Funny how all these Democrats have such a hard time saying what they want to say. Of course Obama didn't mean to say it. I truly believe he didn't want the American public to know just how badly he wants us to lose in Iraq. He may not have meant to say it, but he sure does think it.
