Item #3: MiniTrue Covers For Chairman Zero

Posted by Gregory of Yardale at June 24, 2010 3:59 AM

Obama appointed General David Petraeus to take over for General Stanley McChrystal in Afghanistan after McChrystal offended the world's greatest community organizer by daring to criticize him and some of the idiots in his administration. Everyone was supposed to be impressed because Petraeus very successfully managed to make the Surge in Iraq successful. Most people conveniently overlooked the fact that, back in 2007, Senator Obama opposed the surge in Iraq and was openly campaigning for its (and General Petraeus's) failure. The left-wing outfit MoveOn-dot-org even took out an ad in the New York Times calling him "General Betray-Us." A number of Democrats and Republicans voted to condemn the ad. Obama wasn't one of them.

We were all supposed to forget about that. We don't actually have a MiniTrue, but we have the MFM, which achieves much the same result by not mentioning this inconvenient fact of history. And MoveOn-dot-org also did their best to help by deleting the web page featuring the ad and their explanation for it.
