Maybe it’s the magic in the air with Summer Solstice approaching, but the fiery conservative broadcaster Glenn Beck and his favorite punching bag Hillary Clinton are on the same page about something. They both are recanting their original support for the invasion of Iraq.
Beck even admitted on his radio show Tuesday that liberals were right in those days.
They said we couldn’t force freedom on people. Let me lead with my mistakes. You are right. Liberals, you were right. We shouldn’t have.”
Clinton put her mea culpa in her new book:
I thought I had acted in good faith and made the best decision I could with the information I had. And I wasn’t alone in getting it wrong. But I still got it wrong. Plain and simple.”
As policy reversals go Beck gets credit for some generosity toward the other side in that debate. Clinton hedged hers with a bit more defensiveness — “I wasn’t alone in getting it wrong.”
