Now the media is doing Obama's spinning for him.

ABC News is reporting that President Bush is taking foreign policy cues from Barack Obama. This couldn't be farther from the truth, but they won't report that. Just as the NY Times refuses to run John McCain's rebuttal of the op-ed piece they ran for Obama.

The headline from ABC News: State Dept. Talks With Iran, N. Korea Look Like Obama Policy. They would have us believe that President Bush has been seeking counsel from junior Senator Barack Obama, and that he has had some radical shift in foreign policy.

The American Thinker has a great piece rebutting this argument authored by Ray Robison who points out that President Bush has consistently been tough with the Iranians. He sums it up as follows:
With no more nuclear threat from Saddam, against a US government that has raised the stakes on Iranian attempts to hide nuclear development, and faced with an international community that largely agrees with our president that Iran must not get nuclear weapons, it is possible that Iran has run out of options and might actually be looking for a peaceful way out. Because of Iran's recent history trust is out of the question. But there is no reason not to find out what they have to say. That's not weakness. It's negotiating from a position of strength.

It isn't as if President Bush himself flew to Tehran to meet with the mullahs and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, as Obama has indicated he would do.

And don't forget, Time magazine's cover this week was "Afghanistan, the right war", which is one of Obama's favorite slogans

I didn't see that, but why am I not surprised?

I thought Mr. Obama said that he was going to send All American soldiers home when he became President. He must have Changed his mind, Again!
What is the big fascination about this guy? When he speaks all I hear is um..ah..um..um ah blah, blah,blah.

By the way, what happened to the George Bush I voted for, twice?
