MSNBC is reporting today that President Obama is seeking another $83 billoin dollars in supplemental funding for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, something that Obama had repeatedly denounced, but voted in favor of, throughout his brief stint in the US Congress and on the campaign trail.
Disclaimer: As a libertarian, I find little to agree with in President Obama. In domestic policy, he in essence stands for the government buying its way into private businesses by way of bailout cash. He who pays the piper, as it were, calls the tune. In foreign policy, he is a vast improvement over the warmongering, torture-defending Bush administration, but he is still far from the ideal in foreign policy: non-interventionism and neutrality.
