Barack Obama is in full retreat. In the last 48 hours, he has retreated in the following areas:
- Iran. Barack Obama, who used to call for unconditional meetings with Ahmedinejad, now wants "preparations"
- Iraq. Before, he wasn't going to go. Now he is.
- Pfleger. Before there was one offensive pastor. Now there are two.
- Auschwitz and the uncle. Except that there was no Auschwitz and no uncle.
This has got to be hugely embarassing for the Obama campaign. And good for the McCain campaign and the RNC for driving the message on all of Obama's ridiculous policies, gaffes and embarrassing connections.
