Is Obama taking to many victory laps?
Someone needs to tell Obama to shut up. He's taken enough victory laps, there is a point at which what seems to work to his political advantage will provoke more response than we are prepared for. Any time now I expect him to make a speech under a "Mission Accomplished" banner. Bush was wrong on May 1st 2003 and Obama is wrong today. I know he wants to get re-elected, but that won't happen if his victory laps further anger Al Qaida and they attack. Clearly they will spew their hate whatever Obama does, but I think he needs to take a few steps back.
