Destabilized if You Do, Destabilized if You Don't

From Opinion Journal
"We think we've solved the mystery of why the press pays so much attention to Chuck Hagel, the Republican senator from Nebraska. Consider this quote from the Associated Press:

"We should start figuring out how we get out of there [Iraq]," Hagel said on "This Week" on ABC. "But with this understanding, we cannot leave a vacuum that further destabilizes the Middle East. I think our involvement there has destabilized the Middle East. And the longer we stay there, I think the further destabilization will occur."

This just makes no sense. Going in to Iraq destabilized the Middle East (as opposed to the stability that prevailed pre-9/11?), so we need to pull out because our being there destabilized the Middle East, but we don't want to leave a vacuum that destabilized the Middle East. Whatever, dude!"

HeavyHanded is wondering, "Is this the rhetoric of a candidate with presidential aspirations?"
