Obama told 2,800 on the campus of Morningside College here. “Didn’t mention it. Didn’t offer a plan in terms of how me might end the war or, if he’s not going to end it, he’s got to let people know.”

Obama, the king of “ain’t-got-no-plans about nothin’”, has a lot of nerve to say this.

Romney should reply thusly: The day I take office the rules of engagement will change and American warriors will no longer have to take incoming before killing jihadists. This will make our warriors safer and shorten the war. Got it Obambo?

He wants to talk about anything other than his catastrophic economic policies. Don’t let him!

“Didn’t mention it. Didn’t offer a plan in terms of how he might submit a budget, if he’s not going to submit it, he’s got to let people know.”

How I'd like Mitt to respond.

It's still the ECONOMY and Obambi wont talk about it.

How about a CONSERVATIVE RESPONSE, Mr. Romney???

GO ON THE OFFENSIVE.

Ask the pRes_ _ent (he has no documentation, and you
should go after that, too) why he witholds bullets
and the ability to fight back from OUR TROOPS,
even while he is releasing terrorists every day
to kill them.

Here’s the thing. Obama is president. He gets daily security briefings. It is not Romney’s place or the place of anyone else to second guess the president on what to do. O didn’t follow that simple rule in 2008 but that’s what I assume Romney is doing. He should say so.

It’s weird how Barry is afraid to speak to adults. He only speaks to “the yoots” on college campi. Slick Willie’s wife is over in the Middle East stirring up trouble with her “Arab Spring” BS by speaking to “the yoots” there.

Someone needs to inform that rambling moron that He is not the boss of Romney. Get a grip Obama...you’re looking more and more like a pathetic loser.

By asking Romney how HE would settle “the Afghanistan problem”, Obama is setting a subtle trap.

Obama hasn’t a clue how to extricate himself from Afghanistan without looking like a fool, because the really effective steps have always been sabotaged either by his staff, or by his own clumsy application. He hemmed and hawed around when a swift response would have worked, he has gone in timidly and without the forceful thrust that would bring the Taliban to negotiations and resolution, and he has telegraphed far too many of his moves, allowing the entrenched powers to either begin to take issue with what little he HAS done, or to effectively checkmate him.

If Romney presents any kind of a plan, this would then promptly be made known to the other parties, before an effective strategy may be put in place for execution. What was a game of chess becomes liar’s poker.

Do you really want Afghanistan to become an issue this election, Obama?

All Romney has to do in response is present a graph of the casuality rate over the past 6 or 7 years.

Yeah, like these Arab “yutes” are going to listen to some American pant-suit wearing broad! “Hey Abdul, how you say, weebles wobble but they don’t fall down!”

(In my best Arab accent!)

Obama added: “I put forward a specific plan to bring our troops home from Afghanistan by the end of 2014. We are in the process of doing that right now. And when I say I’m going to bring ‘em home, you know they’re gonna come home."

I think Obama is trying to imply that Romney will not the war...since he has no stated plans...

Romney’s plan should based in large part on doing what the U.S. military and Afghan government recommend be done.

He’s simply zeroing in on anything the Romney camp says that he thinks might take some of his base away from him. A lot of them are upset about the wars, which he promised he would end and didn’t. He heard the cheering when Eastwood said bring them home tomorrow.

He’s so campaign-focused he doesn’t think about the other ramifications of what he says. Campaigner first, leader of the nation somewhere near the bottom, or nowhere.

I could have sworn that The Won has already given a withdrawal date. So wouldn’t that, in effect, end the war?

Why doesn’t he campaign on that instead of asking how Romney would end a war he has already ended?

I’m sure I am missing something.

Yeah...and what ever happened to: we leave after we kill Bin Laden? I heard that from Democrats all the time. Not sure if Obama said it, but he says so much BS it’s a waste of time to keep track.

So he’s asking Romney HOW?

Obama's plan?
1. Do Nothing
2. Hector Romney into offering his idea. Do the opposite of what ever Romney suggests.
3. If Romney doesn't suggest any thing, revert to No.1 and repeat cycle until after the election

If I were Romney (I’m glad I am not), I would tell Obummer, “As soon as I am President, I will advise what my plan is. Remember when the Demodummies passed ObamaCare, Pelosi said, “You have to pass it so you can read what’s in it. The same applies in this case, you have got to elect ME before I tell you ANYTHING”.
