Posted on 06/22/2011 5:09:01 PM PDT by Hoodat
President Obama will explain Wednesday night his plan for withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan, with indications of a more rapid recall of soldiers than military advisers recommended but not enough to satisfy his liberal allies.
The president will announce his plan in a televised address from the White House at 8 p.m., spokesman Jay Carney said.

I’ll be in the shower....
Another campaign speech. You know pulling out of Afghanistan will be timed to occur before the election next year. Anything for a vote.
I wonder what color his hair will be tonight? Black, silver, gray, salt & pepper, white, neon green?
the first two sentences released....Hi, as you all know, my hair is a bit grayer since the last time [laughter]. Also, I would like to give a shoutout to chief Thunderthud. [applause].
Slamming Bush in the first 30 seconds
Will Obama tell them tonight or will he wait until they get home to let them know about all of those “shovel ready jobs” he’s got waiting for our brave warriors?
Quit pointing and pecking(if we could see the prompter)
Good no more deals with the Taliban, right? Why do I have doubt?
Tolleybon and Pokkeeston.
Before I became Prez.
blah blah blah
As long as I am President
I just finished dinner a while ago. I don’t want to risk throwing it back up.
I rely on the reports of other brave Freepers to tell us what they saw and heard.
Don't look at me, asshat.
Trying to convince us of his relevance? Lecture, lecture, lecture. Sounds ~~international action? See American leadership in Libya, wasn’t ousting Kadaffy supposed to be a week or two?
Oh, wasn’t AL Qaduh In Iraq too? How about them Iranian made road side bombs? Responsibly end these wars?
The speech is a brew of incoherent slop, trying to tie together loose ends with foreign policy and the economy.
He seems frantic, like it is all coming apart.
The entire speech was targeted at his Left flank, which is crumbling.
He’s simply posturing to win back his nutsack base who he promised an Afganny pullout.
His father would be my hero if he had just pulled out.
I was worried that TOTUS had gone under the bus after soem of the things it made Obama say.
