I was just watching the esteemed Rachel Maddow of MSNBC interview one of her pundits about the ramp up of U.S. troop casualties that may occur in Afghanistan. The pundit said that deaths would likely rise but we shouldn't gauge mission success or failure by that metric.
Apparently, under Obama, deaths don't matter to liberals. Under Bush they were very concerning. Indeed, reporting of the death toll in Iraq was a daily headline from 2004 to 2007. The ultimate lesson is that whatever Obama does, for liberals and MSNBC blabbers who open their cake holes for a shrinking audience, it's all good.
