BHO isn't concerned about military loss of life because there are more murders in his old hood than in Iraq and Afghanistan combined.

Please explain how he's focusing on Afganistan. He has been dragging his feet on the issue for his entire presidency. His is more worried about how much of our money he can waste than he is about giving our troops what they need to be sucsessful.
Well he did have time to bring home the olympics to Chicago. In his defense he did meet McChrystal on the tarmac for 20 minutes before leaving. Yes giving his commanders on the ground 1/3 of what they asked for is really focusing isn't it. The thing is that after 3 months of his foot dragging it still takes time to deploy. People have no idea of the logistics of doing so. Don't think his half measures and platitudes go unnoticed by the troops.

This is the wrong decision. Our President is being influenced by leftovers from the war regime of Bushco & Friends.

So...let me get this straight:

A-Stan is something so important that Oby needs to take all this time "To get it right."

BUT:
We need to rush Healthcare/Insureance reform thru at once?

"Unprecedented" (Oby's favorite word) faulty logic, but no one calls this putz on it.

Does no one else recognize that the bad guys we originally went there to fight are long gone......

Now we are there getting blown up by bombs planted by farmers and such.

What is to be gained at this point? If you want to fight the folks this war was intended to fight we need to move everyone over to Pakistan already.

Otherwise skip it.......Bush/Obama....same thing best I can tell.
How about
