I guess Marine Corp Pat is the only one happy. He has to be on the White House Staff to be such a rump swab.

We are not leaving Afghanistan. Lets make that clear. Some troops will come home, but, the US Government will take out more loans and higher companies like XE (aka Blackwater) to go in there and take over. but we will still be funding it. That means we are still involved.
JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, and those alike are teamed up with the Pentagon going after the natural resources. We will not be leaving.
This whole speech will be a 30 min ordeal of AHHHHH AHHHHH AHHHH, lip service.
Gotta keep that war money flowing. Without the business of war, our country would be completely destitute.

Exactly. It was once said by Calvin Coolidge "The business of America is business."

This is not the case anymore. The business of America is war.

President Obamaís leadership has been very impressive on the military and foreign affairs side. His brilliant strategy to bring the troops from Iraq victorious as he surged them into Afghanistan all while closing in on Osama bin Laden has been a pure masterpiece. Canít wait to hear what the President has to say tomorrow as he will surely announce that our troops will be coming home victorious once again during his Presidency.

I do not like the prospect of this WH in a desperate condition. The people that surround them are not the 'best'.

If we are too be honest, America is going to be there per secula seculorum, in other words: Forever. The drug pusher/user from, where else, Chicago is tooting the withdrawl, without mentioning that with all the supposedly withdrawing, there will be still more troops than when the retard pervert and also drug user from Texas. This is so ridiculous. I would like to compare this "feat" to the special needs athletes that get a medal for not knocking the last of the hurdles, when obvioulsy there is not feat per se, just a game of semantics and since her daughters don't have to go to war, then America can continue bleeding morally, fiscally, even tough we are in the worst of times. I voted by this Trojan horse of democracy and I regretted more than any hting else in my life. But next time, he is going to have to pull a "Bush" here, but I don't think that Scalia and his gang of fourwouldgive the drug pusher/user from Chicago the presidency. I think that one retard in the annals of our "Christian and democratic" nation is enough.

What did previous presidents do to keep us away from strife in other countries? Nothing. Now Obama has a withdrawal plan. We should not complain or draw party lines because of an upcoming election. We should just be happy that our men and women of the miilitary will return safely.
