Beyond all the liberal media baloney...

...with Obaloney's "draw-down" in full swing and IF we bring home 33,000 troops...

He...Barack Obama...will STILL LEAVE TWICE AS MANY TROOPS IN AFGHANISTAN as were there during the Bush administration.

He's a Politician...a Democrat...and a Lawyer.

DO YOU REALLY EXPECT HIM TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH ABOUT ANYTHING?

Only a fool in the military second guesses the President.
I think they learn that at officer school.
