Finally: Obama Throws Himself Under the Bus

The newly pragmatic Barack Obama — the one who promises to listen to U.S. military commanders in Iraq — has attempted to make the old anti-war Obama disappear:

Barack Obama’s campaign scrubbed his presidential Web site over the weekend to remove criticism of the U.S. troop “surge” in Iraq, the Daily News has learned.
The presumed Democratic nominee replaced his Iraq issue Web page, which had described the surge as a “problem” that had barely reduced violence. “The surge is not working,” Obama’s old plan stated, citing a lack of Iraqi political cooperation but crediting Sunni sheiks – not U.S. military muscle – for quelling violence in Anbar Province.
The News reported Sunday that insurgent attacks have fallen to the fewest since March 2004. (Emphasis added.)

Of course, as the pro-Hillary site No Quarter shows, the old anti-war Obama still exists in Internet caches, and this clumsy “surge purge” belies Team Obama’s rep for ‘Net savvy.

Ed Morrissey of Hot Air points out that the scrubbing occurred (a) just after the McCain campaign began slamming Obama as a flip-flopper on the Iraq war, and (b) barely a week before Obama’s departure for a foreign trip that will include a visit with U.S. forces in Iraq.

Memeorandum has lots of links to the jeering that the blogosphere has unleashed at Obama’s Orwellian reinvention of himself.
