Abercrombie Whines About Obama
Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D. Hawaii) expressed dissatisfaction with President Obama's plan to leave 50,000 American troops in Iraq until the end of 2011. His voice rising to a high-pitched whine, Abercrombie, who has had his problems with personal hygeine, said "This doesn't look like defeat, and that's what we worked for. Those of us who opposed this war from the beginning, especially those in my generation, wanted, and, frankly, were promised defeat...humiliating, helicopters-on-the-embassy-rooftop defeat, and President Obama is taking that away from us. How are we supposed to enjoy slinking away from Iraq now?"
