On Unexpected U-Turns and Priorities

The headline you thought you would never see, absent another Pearl Harbor: Obama Urged to Rally Support for War.

This within a few days of an address to Congress to rally support for healthcare reform, or health insurance reform, or whatever.

And both of the above when the economy is still apparently losing jobs, which to the average person is the only definition of "recession". If you have any doubts about that, ask George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton ("It's the Economy, Stupid) circa November 1992, which turned on the economy about a year-and-a-half after the recession officially ended.

A reminder: It's still the economy, Mr. President.
