Political Growth

In politics, “growth” is used by some to describe what others would characterize as an “ideological transformation” that takes place over time rather than immediately.  Question:  was President Obama’s speech accepting the Nobel Peace Prize, which he used to justify sending 30,000 additional troops to an ongoing war in Afghanistan, irony or growth?
