In the midst of a recession, with stocks falling and consumers panicking, Dan Seals wants to talk about...Iraq!
How about that -- the pup knows the economy is a bad issue for him (see Dan dancing on the bailout and more about his work that led to this economic crisis), so all he can do is talk about the war in Iraq.
The problem? As Mark Kirk pointed out in today's Daily Herald, "Things have gone much better in Iraq in the last 12 months." That's a fact. And it means Dan Seals is going to lose big if he thinks he can just talk about the war in the midst of economic panic.
But since the pup wants to talk about Iraq, let's talk about the pup's record on Iraq. Today, I'm unveiling the Real Deal Seals: Dan on Iraq.
When Dan Seals speaks to Democratic audiences, he strongly supports an immediate withdrawal from Iraq. But when he talks to more moderate audiences, his position begins to look very similar to Congressman Kirk's.
It is interesting to note that he told the Daily Herald yesterday he "supports a timeline for withdrawal." That wasn't his position just a couple months ago. Dan, what happened to your April 13th "phased draw down," or your December 2007 willingness to "adjust it as conditions on the ground change?"
