Of course he won't rush to send our troops reinforcements. He knows damn well if he does he is signing the death warrant for tens of thousands of his Muslim brethren.

Piece of s***!

He’s been not rushing this for over nine months. A woman takes less time to create a living baby from a couple of cells in that time.

************

I would like to see/hear Cheney hammering away on this every day for as long as it takes to make everyone sit up and take notice — WE notice the dithering, but it’s not enough.

Maybe Hannity or Beck or someone could put up a ‘countdown to decision on Afghanistan’ clock on his nightly show.

Is it true what Senator Hatch said? Is Obama’s delay due to the upcoming elections?

Unfortunately the death toll rises. No parent of a soldier should have to live with this kind of anxiety.

Let's see, majority of people have health insurance and like it. Hurry Hurry, replace it with something we don't want or need.

Troops is harms way. Slow down and think it through forever before sending reinforcements. Or better yet, let Code Pink decide what is best.

Rush has become Obama’s other middle name. And now he professes the need for a reasoned decision making process.

Yeah, what’s wrong with this picture?

Stimulus
Health Care
Taking management positions at our nations lending institutions, banks, Wall Street...
Deployment of troops in Afghanistan

Can anyone here pick out the management style that differs from the others.

Perhaps if the General running the Afghanistan war effort were a Czar instead of a lowly general...

And remember that Afghan was the “right” war, according to liberals, while Iraq was the “wrong” war.

Even Obama himself has said not long ago that Afghanistan is a war worth fighting, etc.

Remember that the war in Afghanistan was a direct reaction to Sept. 11th.

Can anyone imagine if after Pearl Harbor, Pres. Roosevelt dithered about what should be done?

Now that Iraq is winding down, surely the liberals are eager to go full force after Bin Laden and the Taliban. They agreed it was the “right” war.

Wasn’t the war resolution to go into Afghanistan almost a unanimous vote in Congress, including virtually all Democrats?????

...but we don’t have time to read the bailout bill, or the healthcare socialization bill, or anything else that has to be done yesterday because the world will end 10pm tomorrow if we don’t.

Damn idiot takes 6 months to find a dog, wants national govt healthcare passed before anyone can read or debate it.

Like anyone believes a word coming out of your or any other leading liberal socialist’s mouth. On ANYTHING.

We have troops in Afghanistan. They need reenforcement.

Taking ones time with the initial decision to commit troops is admirable, though I will remind all that the left carped at Bush for taking so long to respond to 9-11 until he did and toppled the Taliban so quickly. Taking ones time to send in requested reenforcements is fool hardy.
