"When I was a United States Senator"

There's been a lot going around the net the last few days on yet another "nuanced" or "inartful" position statement by Barack Obama (D-IL) on Iraq.

Apparently he's not going to bring the troops home in 16 months after all.  You can read about it everywhere.  I'm not going to bother to link.

But here's the comment he made that got me:

I wasn't saying anything I hadn't said before, that I didn't say a year ago or when I was a United States senator.

And people criticize George W. Bush (R-USA) for being arrogant?  Has the Presidential election happened already and I missed it? Shouldn't the state of Illinois hold a special election or appoint a replacement or something? I wouldn't want them to feel like they're not getting their due representation in Congress.

This man should not be allowed to speak without a teleprompter. And yes, I realize the irony of such a statement coming from a GWB supporter.
