It was go to Afghanistn, or stay here and answer for the bad Unemployment numbers, Afghanistan looked the better choice. He did mess up though. He paid homage to all our fighting men, and women, but he left out the Coast Guard. Oh well. He tried. He is very trying.

Woof, The biggest issue we have right now is the extension of the Bush Tax Cuts. Obama should be in Washington to manage the process personally. BUT NO! Obama leaves the country and allows Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid to run wild in their Lame Duck session of Congress. Obama has no clue what is going on. Is it any surprise why our economy is still in the tank, and unemployment is rising?
How is that an issue? BUSH inherited a SURPLUS and cut taxes, TEMPORARILY. Now, mostly because of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, we have a DEFICIT, so we should just allow the BUSH tax cuts to expire. We need to learn to live within our means and pay as we go. We don't want our grandchildren paying for our debts and our wars. We have to support our troops. WE have to pay for OUR wars.

Bush inherited a good budget but also a recession then 9-11 because Bill refused to take Osama from Sudan. Doesn't excuse bush's other mistakes but your lies are too much.

It's Obvious you don't even know the difference between "Deficits" & "National Debt" so you words are as Hollow as ever.

Obama's Budget is #3.5 Trillion of which $1.5 Trillion is in Deficit. A Budget Deficit.

The total cost of for Both Wars over all these years is about $1 Trillion. See how the facts make you post look dumber. Tax Cuts have nothing to do with the War.

We Agree here but this seems to contradict what you've been preaching for the last 2 years. Have you a change of heart?

Simply End Obama's Wars. Obama basically said we're going to be in Afghanistan forever. We can't afford that. It's time to realize that Obama is a Huge part of the problem.

They have already cut a deal. Today's votes are symbolic. Democrats can't pass them, and Republicans won't vote for them. Monday they will extend the Bush tax cuts for everyone, that will then become the Obama tax cuts, and the Republicans will give the unemployed an extention, and they will all go home for Christmas.

Let's see:

The unemployment numbers just took a turn for the worst.

obamadunce knows he was wrong about not keeping the existing tax laws in place during a miserable economy.

obamatool's health care plan, one he obviously knew NOTHING about, is so bad, major corporations are asking for exemptions from this POS monstrosity.

obamaprompter's party took a huge shellacking during the mid-term elections because these political good-for-nothings do not listen and rule against the will of the people.

obamadunce's campaign platform was partially based on a transparent working of government. pelosi's plan was to clean up the swamp. We later found out it was to be "business as usual" with bribery and back room deals just to obtain a simple majority vote on the health care bill even though the dems easily had a majority in both houses congress.

"The first former Guantánamo detainee to be tried in a civilian court was acquitted on Wednesday of all but one of more than 280 charges of conspiracy and murder in the 1998 terrorist bombings of the United States Embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania."

obamaclueless and dumb$hit holder are handed their heads on a platter after only one charge out of 280 stuck during the civilian trial of Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani. This guy almost got away with his terrorist acts. The assembly of clowns in this administration does not even want use the word terrorist to describe our enemy.

Keep obama out of the country for as long as possible before he f..ks up something else. He can bore the foreigners with his boring, without substance drivel he calls a speech.

Obama's a total loser. Been fighting this illegal war for a decade, and we do NOT have the money to continue, he get's his butt kicked in the last election, yet, STILL can't figure out what to do!

Where' the 'change?' Oh, MORE Marxist doctrines: increased taxation to cover marxist ideological 'health' care, AND MORE constant Orwellian-marxist wars.

Right, I get it. That's change alright.

Oh yes, let me add to the list with obamacrap and d0uchebag holder suing the state of Arizona for trying to protect itself because this administration (and others past) are not upholding the immigration laws of the land that help protect the borders and citizens of the nation....THEIR PRIMARY JOB!!!!

Bubblehead obama and girlie man holder, let the voter intimidation charges slide for black "pussy" cats outside of a Philadelphia voting site.

Community disorganizer obama illegal fires inspector general Gerald Walpin discovers the fraudulent misuse of AmeriCorp funds.

<<<<<<< <<<<<<< <<<<<<< <<>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>
"The method of Walpin's firing could be a violation of the 2008 Inspectors General Reform Act, which requires the president to give Congress 30 days' notice, plus an explanation of cause, before firing an inspector general. Then-Sen. Barack Obama was a co-sponsor of that legislation. In the case of Walpin, Eisen's efforts to force Walpin to resign could be seen as an effort to push Walpin out of his job so that the White House would not have to go through the 30-day process or give a reason for its action. When Walpin refused to quit, the White House informed Congress and began the 30-day countdown.

Oh yeah, let's fly Air Force 1 low over the NYC area for a photo op and scare the crap out of the people below, some who were witness to low flying aircraft on 9/11/01.

WOW, what a great Christmas gift for our men and women in uniform; and what a resounding and enthusiastic greeting they gave our Commander-in-Chief. You can tell that our soldiers fully support this President and believe that he is leading them to victory in Afghanistan the way he led them to victory in Iraq before he brought all combat troops home.
I am so proud to be an American with President Obama as the leader; and so are our active duty troops.
Yep, that rates right up there with getting a lump of coal in your stocking and a bag of switches wrapped up under the tree.

Obama couldn't lead a water buffalo out of a wet paper bag, let alone lead anyone to victory.

If you call that mess in Iraq a victory, you're as phuqued up as poop platter.

Liberals are all marxists, and being communist, they love to pull the self esteem-stroke card. They'd call a retard intelligent, that's why marxists want everyone, including children, eventually, to vote, as stupid idiots are Orwellian EASY to control.

The Magi came from the east following a star to the Christ child in Bethlehem. When they found him they presented their gifts.
The first Wise Man quietly placed frankincense before Him.
The second Wise Man quietly placed myrhh at the foot of the manger.
The third Wise Man presented gold, at which point Joseph said,"Awright, now that's what I'm talking about."

1- It's Very good of Obama to visit the troops.
2- It's kind of squirrely that he made sure this short visit not very close to xmas didn't effect his Hawaiian xmas vacation.
3- He stated that the US will never let Afghanistan become a safe haven for Terrorist...?
4- The Last comment should worry every American since it means Obama wants to stay in Afghanistan for 100 years.
Oh stop it!!
No Presidend 'wants to stay in Afghanistan for 100 yrs' much less than Vietnam for more than 20yrs....

He can't say what he has learned since being in office. Since learning that Pres. Bush wasn't such an idiot...since learning how effed up the situation really is.

Nope, there really is a whole bunch of people out there that want to kill us-just cuz we don't believe showing a cartoon image of Muhammed equates atomatic jihad. Just cuz some of us make jokes about just what kinda 72 virgins really are waiting for them.

This really IS a religious war-yet Pres. Obama is in no position to call it so.

I am happy obama took a scant minute to visit soldiers in Afghanistan. Even if it was disingenuous in his own mind. Maybe to look like he means it, he should hang around DC on Memorial Day and Veteran's Day too.
