Obama Says Soldiers' Lives 'Wasted'

Obama Says Soldiers' Lives 'Wasted'

In his first stumble, White House hopeful Barack Obama on Monday took back words from the day before, when he said the lives of U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq were "wasted."


Following his Springfield launch on Saturday, Obama wrapped up a three-day swing in the key primary states of Iowa and New Hampshire, ending at a University of New Hampshire rally where he assailed the "trivialization of politics" where "it is all about who makes a gaffe."
In this case, that would be Obama, the Illinois Democrat.

During his first press conference as a presidential candidate at Iowa State University, Obama, discussing his opposition to the Iraq war, said the war "should have never been authorized, and should have never been waged, and on which we've now spent $400 billion, and have seen over 3,000 lives of the bravest young Americans wasted.''

As is always the case with elitest libs,they reveal themselves,in unguarded moments but they do reveal themselves ultimatly as the racists,bigots,anti-Semites and anti-Americans they really are. this idiot is no different. Trouble is though,thanks to short memories and an obliging media,statements like this by this guy will be forgotten soon. J'Mac.

Hussein Obama! What an idiot! Sad thing is Cindy Sheehan agrees with him and her own son "wasted" his life. Barack Hussein Obama is a WASTE OF A LIFE so long as he stand wrong on all the issues.
