LIVE THREAD - Obama to Read From Teleprompter (Obama to lay out pace of troop pullout)
Washington Times ^ | June 21, 2011 | David Boyer

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.

Another campaign speech. You know pulling out of Afghanistan will be timed to occur before the election next year. Anything for a vote.

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?

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.

Good try Axelrod, but being I am posting to myself, I sense a waning of attention even among the politically astute. O’Reilly is giving his old media analysis now.

I see this entire thing as a slow and painful surrender, done for political reasons and done in such a way to insure more U.S. casualties.

My son-in-law ships to Afghanistan within 23 days.... while much of his backup leaves.

“There will be dark days in Afghanistan”

“We must reconcile the gov., including the Tall-E-Bon “

“Next summer troops will leave Afghanistan.” (so I can claim victory in my reelection campaign and the sh*t won't hit the fan until the second week of Nov.)

10 years wasted. Obama sucks. That is the nicest thing I have to say.

As much as they think they can plot it out and plan it, it’s war and it’s unpredictable, I wouldn’t show my cards.

If it’s can be any comfort about your son-in-law, I recall a Private from basic training who’s dream was to be an Army Ranger, and I thank God for brave souls like that. I have out-grown mine, but bless them all as they serve this great country, the United States of America!

going directly against every military mans advice .. now the Taliban can claim victory as Al-qaeda moves back in and sets up shop again.

WAY to go Obama .. anything for a vote. Gotta get that base back. To hell with American security. Now they can plan another 9/11 from the safety of Afghanistan all over again.

he is a genius.

That's exactly as the Aphgan leadership sees this move as well as the Brits and others who have troops there. They see it as so because of course that is exactly what Obama's doing....using it all and every move he makes for re-election. We are all pawns on Obama's game board.

It pains me and infuriates me that he’s using these brave men and women as pawns in his Hopey-Changey 2012 run.

Just disgusting...playing with life and death for politics sake...as usual.

The TRUTH is that this is a last, desperate effort to get votes for next year’s Presidential election. It is STILL the “economy stupid” that will STILL SINK Obama.

I wouldn’t be surprised if he uses his usual Chicago tactics to win the election. I can’t believe there are that many stupid people who would re-elect him. The Republicans, however, have to put up a strong candidate. Another Mitt Romney and you might as well vote for Obama. Pretty much the same thing. We need a conservative, not an Obama-lite.

Not to get all psychy about him, and I don’t have a PhD, but me-thinks Obama is highly insecure and puts on the appearance of arrogance to mask his incompetence. The incompetence part isn’t debatable, and has been proven ever since he was sworn into office.

No matter what he says, he will be leaving troops there. Those troops are up for grabs in one of the most dangerous places in the world.

Mogadishu is about to repeat itself.

he is the most evil person I can imagine, he sacrifices lives like nothing to promote his own political agenda. And the left eats it up.
