Scroll down for updates…Via Obama’s website, here are the full prepared remarks of his Macho Speechyou’ll be able to watch the speech at the Woodrow Wilson Center here.

superman2.jpg Looks like the laughingstock Democrat presidential candidates have been eating their Wheaties. Yesterday, it was John Edwards flexing his imaginary muscles at Saudi Arabia. Today, it’s Barack Obama shaking his fist at Pakistan. ABC News reports on the first-term senator’s latest, greatest “bold” idea–invading Pakistan unilaterally. Diplomacy, international law, and the U.N. be damned! Behold, Obama the Cowboy:

In a strikingly bold speech about terrorism scheduled for this morning, Democratic presidential candidate Illinois Sen. Barack Obama will call not only for a withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, but a redeployment of troops into Afghanistan and even Pakistan with or without the permission of Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf.

“I understand that President Musharraf has his own challenges,” Obama will say, according to speech excerpts provided to ABC News by his campaign, “but let me make this clear. There are terrorists holed up in those mountains who murdered 3,000 Americans. They are plotting to strike again. It was a terrible mistake to fail to act when we had a chance to take out an al Qaeda leadership meeting in 2005. If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won’t act, we will.”

Ooooooh. Scaaaary. Is there anything more pathetic than a defeatist retreatist trying to sound tough on terror?

Snicker. Snort. Guffaw. Cue up Obama’s new theme song:

The Obama campaign also supplied the remarks in advance to the Associated Press.

More reaction:

Clayton Cramer: “The major selling point that Obama has to the billionaires is that he opposed the Iraq War. I think he just threw away that advantage.”

Sister Toldjah: “Would this be before or after those unconditional meetings he would have with the world’s most despotic ‘leaders’?”

Jason Smith: “I’m Not Naive on Foreign Policy… Watch Me Invade a Nuclear-Armed, Muslim Country!”

Allahpundit looks at Obama’s prepared remarks and concludes:

Sounds like he’s looking to invade a lot more than just Pakistan. Is the left prepared for U.S. special ops incursions into various sovereign countries to attack AQ leadership? They seemed a little jumpy about the operations in Somalia in December, notwithstanding the fact that four of the 1998 embassy bombers were in the crosshairs. And secondly, does everyone realize that Bush has already promised to send troops into Pakistan if they’ve got a bead on Bin Laden? Obama’s not breaking any new ground here unless he means to suggest something grander than a surgical strike of a few hundred troops. Which, given his specific mention of the 2005 shot at Zawahiri that Rumsfeld passed on, he probably doesn’t.

Ed Morrissey: “One would hope that this would mark the end of Barack Obama’s credibility as a presidential candidate.”
