    OK liberals, spin this. Obama says the surge is working. I guess Bush isn't so dumb after all. And this plays right into McCain's hand.<br>

    Obama: Surge Succeeded Beyond ‘Wildest Dreams’<br>
    by FOXNews.com<br>
    Thursday, September 4, 2008<br>
    <br>
    Thursday: Barack Obama, the Democratic presidential nominee, sits for an interview with FOX News' Bill O'Reilly.<br>
    <br>
    The troop surge in Iraq has been more successful than anyone could have imagined, Barack Obama conceded Thursday in his first-ever interview on FOX News’ “The O’Reilly Factor.”<br>
    <br>
    As recently as July, the Democratic presidential candidate declined to rate the surge a success, but said it had helped reduce violence in the country. On Thursday, Obama acknowledged the 2007 increase in U.S. troops has benefited the Iraqi people.<br>
    <br>
    “I think that the surge has succeeded in ways that nobody anticipated,” Obama said while refusing to retract his initial opposition to the surge. “I’ve already said it’s succeeded beyond our wildest dreams.”<br>
    <br>
    However, he added, the country has not had enough “political reconciliation” and Iraqis still have not taken responsibility for their country.<br>
    <br>
    “We have gone through five years of mismanagement of this war that I thought was disastrous, and the president wanted to double down and continue an open-ended policy (that did not put pressure on the Iraqi government),” he said.<br>
    <br>
    Speaking on other national security matters, Obama said he would not take military action off the table in dealing with Iran, but diplomacy and sanctions can’t be overlooked.<br>
    <br>
    The Islamic republic is a “major threat” and it would be “unacceptable” for the rogue nation to develop a nuclear weapon, he said.<br>
    <br>
    “It is unacceptable for Iran to possess a nuclear weapon, it would be a game changer,” Obama said. “It’s sufficient to say I would not take military action off the table and that I will never hesitate to use our military force in order to protect the homeland and the United States’ interests.”<br>
    <br>
    But Obama warned against the current U.S. administration lumping radical Islamic groups together.<br>
    <br>
    “They have fueled a whole host of terrorist organizations,” Obama said of Iran, but “we have to have the ability to distinguish between groups. … They may not all be part and parcel of the same ideology.”<br>
    <br>
    Obama sat down with O’Reilly in York, Pa., after holding a discussion on the economy with voters nearby. The Illinois senator has been campaigning in battleground states since accepting the Democratic presidential nomination last Thursday at his party’s convention in Denver.<br>
    <br>
    John McCain was formally chosen as the Republican presidential nominee Wednesday in St. Paul.<br>
    <br>
    Obama also told FOX News Thursday he “absolutely” believes the United States is fighting a War on Terror, with the enemy being, “Al Qaeda, the Taliban, a whole host of networks that are bent on attacking America, who have a distorted ideology, who have perverted the faith of Islam.”<br>
    <br>
    He repeated his campaign’s foreign policy position that Afghanistan must become the “central front” in the War on Terror.<br>
    <br>
    Obama was first asked to come on “The O’Reilly Factor” in early 2007.<br>
    <br>
    The interview will air in three more parts, at 8 p.m. ET Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

    Seems like McCain knew it would succeed....

    NO you idiot...it succeeded more than you liberal America hating wack-jobs ever could have imagined.
    Note to Barry...Please leave the "big stuff" like America's future, our security, and our frredom to the men and women who understand how to protect this nation. Do what YOU are best qualified for...Stay in Da Hood and "organize" whatever that is....

    IMO, Obama fails the character test and speaks out of both sides of his mouth.

    It looks to me that Obama is trying to regain momentum after Sarah's announcement as VP and her two great speeches. Why else would his campaign ask to appear on the Factor TV program.

    The democrats are on the run.

    We do not need another Ivy League lawyer in the White House.

    Did you also notice that O'Reilly had to really press him to get to admit it. Obama tried to spin but Bill would not let him.

    BlowBama sounds more like a conservative every day. Funny how he dumped his preacher, his pals, his next door neighbor, and a ton of his liberal convictions, just to get elected. Noticed how comfortable Palin was up on the stage, just being herself. Thats what happens when you believe the things that you say, you dont have to worry about messing up. Todd

    "Well, he did vote against the war to begin with. I give him an A for that. But I am voting for the Palin/McCain ticket". Hey MIA, the vote for the war was in Oct. 2002 and Obama wasn't elected to the senate until 2004. SPLAIN!!!

    It wasn't the first time he appeared on Fox News, as he was on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace back in the spring (a long, long time after he promised he would come on).

    But with O'Reilly he said that 'he'd already said' that the surge was a success. Funny; when he had just been to Iraq, he denied that it had been a success.

    And as for the Iraqi political reconciliation, has he been reading the news lately? Oh, that's right, I forgot, the news does't mention it, either. Says loads about how informed he is.

    Who is this guy and what makes him think he is qualified to be president?

    "...what makes him think he is qualified to be president?"

    He thinks he is entitled to be President.
