President Obama zipped through Afghanistan Tuesday on a previously unannounced visit, signing a key partnership document with Afghan President Hamid Karzai as he prepared to deliver an address to the nation on the anniversary of Usama bin Laden's death.
In excerpts released in advance of the address, the president made sweeping statements about the course and eventual conclusion of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.
"We have traveled through more than a decade under the dark cloud of war. Yet here, in the pre-dawn darkness of Afghanistan, we can see the light of a new day on the horizon," he plans to say, praising America's troops and making a call to "renew America."
"This time of war began in Afghanistan, and this is where it will end," Obama said in the prepared remarks.

Little children “from dark cloud of war”... THIS IS SO GAAAAAAAAAY!
It’s only a “dark cloud” when it involves the US freeing some miserable country from a brutal dictatorship. But Leftist uprisings, revolutions and overthrows are considered “Liberation”, according to commie scum like BHO.

Katy Perry does the ‘Part of Me’ Video re: a woman going into the Marines. Does anyone think this is due to pure support for the troops (she did the Diva for the troops shindig with Kathy Griffin, spit). Or do you think it’s part of the push for the next step of women on the front lines re: combat?

All of a sudden, he’s a war time “president”. His Dukakis moment was standing in front of those big-a$$ trucks. Made him look smaller than the man we know he is.
I look forward to this November, when America votes itself out from under the 'dark cloud' of Obama and his criminal enterprise.
This would be breaking, but huffpost is blocked, but guess what:

Nothing about Obama is “cool”. Ice cold is what he is. To the point of being inhuman, in fact.
