Colonel Jack Jacobs Opines On Obama For Imus
Imus asked Col Jack what he thought of the Obama Iraq trip. According to the Colonel, Obama will not have any information he did not have before the trip. Nobody does, there is no substance to it at all. Would be no different if McCain went to Iraq. “It’s all eye wash” is how the Colonel summarized the trip.
The Colonel also took issue with Obama’s Iraq plan. Obama withdrawing one to two brigades a month until they are all gone, he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. It is not logistically possible to do. It is not a strategically viable thing to do. Giving props to Obama, credits the plan ” We’re going to get ‘em all out” as a good campaign slogan!
On the New York Times hammering Obama over changing positions. Col Jack’s take? “These guys are professional politicians, they don’t have positions”.
On the New Yorker cover of Obama and his wife. According to the Colonel there is no doubt about the political bent of the New Yorker or the article it related to. It wasn’t funny, wasn’t suppose to be funny. It is satire of a nature which is infrequently funny.
What’s going on in Iraq? The Colonel observes we’ve had real success there. The surge has worked where we flooded the area and kept a lot of troops there. Now the bad guys have left to go somewhere else. Casualties are down. Iraqi Army is doing much better. The population is starting to disdain the militia.
Talking about Iraq, Imus admitted to loving Muqtada al-Sadar. Having described him as a “the fat little nut”. He looks like John Belushi in of those Saturday Night Live skits. Col Jack declared Muqtada can be a great media star. He predicts al-Sadar will come out of his mouse hole when we leave Iraq.
