Wow! He had time to sign bills ... but no time to decide on General McCrystal’s request.

Time to praise the American Indians Tribes Summit ... but no time to decide on General McCrystal’s request.

I detect a pattern here.

Well now, there you go K-one Texas...thinking and even thinking out loud.

Keep it up.

Most patriotic Americans are still thinking and I just betcha they are seeing the patterns, too.

Thanks Cindy. I’m a little older than the average bear, so thinking out loud is inevitable.

But I like where your going with your comment.
