In my opinion, his entire position on Afghanistan during the campaign was to paint Iraq as a "bad" war and Afghanistan as a "good" war; in large part, because at that time, the Iraq War was unpopular and the insurgency was highly active at that time. Bush stuck it out and Iraq was stabilized (for the time being). Now that Obama is in office and has the power to enact all the promises he made during the campaign, he is sitting on his hands. Of course, the media will not do their job and show his past words and confront him about it.

I don't really care to have a leader that worries about what the rest of the world thinks of us. Yes, they hate us, I guess that's why we are inundated with immigration/visa/green card applications (not to mention those that just stroll on in).




Don't worry, Play the Man, I think BHO is a one-termer for sure.

No, I really don't care. I'm an American, not a globalist.
