The UN flag or the Saudi Arabian flag would more appropriate for Obama.

This tool will try to claim this as his victory in a subtle way. He will never admit he was wrong on the surge. Socialist bastard!

Kiss our behinds? Promising more bribes, or is he trying to sweet talk us bitter clingers?

Sure they have Juan Williams on, to try, unsuccessfully, to dispel the clear logic from Krauthammer. Only reason I will watch is to hear if he pays homage to GWB and to listen to Krauthammer's analysis.

BTW while he was vactioning, they refurbished the oval office (hate the drapes) and apparently it didn't cost the taxpayers a dime.

Well I'll watch him..........I just opened a beer.

I get so sick of this renaming of wars.............you can say combat ops are over, unless your the guy holding a rifle staring down those son of a guns over there.

50,000 non combat troops know it is still war.

One thing is certain, Zer0 didn’t have to clean the Oval Office desk prior to the teleprompter reading.

The latter, definitely. And didn't GWB first talk about setting a deadline to withdraw troops? Obama's trying to paint it like it was all him (I know, shocker)

New haircut, empty desk.

“The future is ours to shape.”

Obvious reading from the telepromter as he appears to
take credit for the surge. No mention he was wrong.

They're still targets, something I haven't seen Barry acknowledge.

We already know what he's going to say - a bunch of useless crap.
It'll be platitude after platitude. He'll read generic line after generic line from his teleprompter. That's all he ever does. He never says anything relevant.
