Hey Joe, Where You Going With That Gun In Your Hand?

Just a quick compare and contrast on Joe Biden then and now.  Watch as he turns from surge fail to surge success before your eyes as if it were a David Blaine illusion.

From Huffington Post on April 5, 2008 - less than 2 years ago saying the surge was a failure.
WASHINGTON — A leading Democrat on Saturday declared last year's troop buildup in Iraq a failure. Sen. Joe Biden, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the military push didn't succeed because U.S. troops remain committed there in large numbers and political reconciliation has not been achieved. "The purpose of the surge was to bring violence in Iraq down so that its leaders could come together politically," said Biden, D-Del., in this week's Democratic radio address. "Violence has come down, but the Iraqis have not come together." He later added, "There is little evidence the Iraqis will settle their differences peacefully any time soon."

And this week from Face The Nation, (HT EconomyPolitics), saying how great a success Iraq has been, trying to take credit for Democrats and followed by a bonus clip from 2007 with Biden arguing against the surge.

I think he beat Kerry on the flip flop meter - he was against the surge before he was disappointed in it's results before he was for taking credit for it.
