No Mention

Super-smirker Goldfarb reports that John McCain just gave a speech to neocon AEI on Afghanistan and what should happen next.

In the entire 3500 word speech he doesn't say Obama's name once. He refers to "the President's decision" last week to deploy 17,000 more troops to Afghanistan, and he refers once to "President Bush," but never mentions Obama's name.

Isn't that strange? Not sure what it means, but it seems a little odd to me. Seems like if you want something done in Afghanistan, you might want to discuss some practical steps towards accomplishing them, and Obama plays at least *some* role in that, right?
