"Numbered" is in the eye of the beholder

There was a 'I've heard this somewhere before'  ring to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta's statement on Tuesday that "Gadhafi's days are numbered," as Time Battleland blog notes.

Here, courtesy of the Battleland gang, is a look at the Obama administration's  six months of insisting, the end is near:

"Gadhafi's days are numbered." – August 15, White House press secretary Jay Carney

"He's really running out of time." – July 20, Carney

"His days are numbered." – July 13, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

"The noose is tightening around him." – June 29, President Obama

"His days are numbered." – June 20, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland

"We do believe his days are numbered." – June 20, Carney

"His days are numbered." – June 16, Nuland

For the rest of the list, read the Battleland blog
