    So how is fighting the Al-Q equal to surrender? Obama is looking into changing our mission from targeting the Taliban to targeting AQ and you said this change is surrender.

    What rock have you been under? He has only consulted with McChrystal a total of one time until he was shamed into doing it again by making him fly to ****ing Copenhagen.

    Under the rock where is McChrystal NOT a member of the Joint Chiefs and/or Obama's Military council. It's called Earth.

    There is a chain of command. McChrystal's reports go through the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of Defense goes to the President.

    The Audacity of a Dope!

    His insistence to hire tax cheats. Nice move... Tax Cheat at the Treasury. Daschle, Richardson, Killefer, Solis.

    Military moral in the toilet. Wonder why? He's such a believable Commander in Chief. The troops hearts just sing knowing he is there with 100% support for their putting their lives on the line to rid the world of a scourge...LOL.

    He added insult to injury on the economy. He went in the wrong direction in correcting a problem started by Carter, with turbo chargers added by Clinton/Reno, that exploded under Bush (though Bush and McCain warned about the potential fallout).

    ACORN. If you're a whore, wanna hire illegal children and partake in Human Trafficking... we're your organization. Obama trained and supported... with a seat at the table offered by the Dr. Oh!?

    Targeting AIG executives. Wasn't that a nice exhibition of judgment? Having Americans live in fear because of the president.

    Calling police "stupid" after one of his buddies has a tizzy fit. Forget the facts, just dump on the cops... because he's a radical black buddy of yours.

    Meet with our enemies... or indicating he will... but doesn't have the time for FOXNEWS. Judgment, and priorities.

    Gifts/slights to our English allies. Would you like fries with your CD's? How about a format you can use?

    Holder, Obama's AG... we are racists.

    Caving to the Russians. Polish/Czech defense shield dumped on the anniversary of the Soviets invading Poland in 1939. Now that takes exceptional talentski! Of course, we know Dr. Oh! has a great grasp of geo-politics.

    Gitmo. Some people just fail to understand. I guess he just doesn't get why people don't want this troupe of gay singers and dancers in their back yard. Couldn't be more friendly neighbors. As a bonus it comes with your community's very own invitation to the terror target list. Dr. O! fails to grasp the grass roots realities... still.

    Obama claimed superior "judgment". How could he pick the only gaffe bomb bigger than himself as VP? Because he is such a light weight. Lacks Gravitas... even with the POTUS title.

    Permitting the President's jet to fly over NY without a warning to the citizens. Now that is foresight, understanding and judgment. 911 just didn't happen to many Libs, and Dr. O! wanted to prove it.

    "Shovel Ready" to 10 percent unemployment. The only thing "shovel ready" is when he or Obiden open their yaps and their propagandists start flinging and spinning the daily crap.

    Socialist healthcare. Has failed anywhere it has been tried, but who cares. You need it. Constitution? What's that?

    His trip to Denmark; it would have been different had he not personalized the bid, and had they not finished in last place. But he did and they did. Boffo I say.

    Government Motors! Was it necessary? No. But it is ours now. It's nice to know that Skoda, Lada, Yugo and Trabant were government motors too.

    Bowing to the Saudi King. I was nervous for a second. The King's cape opened just as Dr. O! was going down.

    "We're not a Christian nation". At least when he speaks to Muslim nations.

    His handling of the Iranian protests. It took what?... 5 days for a response. I guess it took that long to get a clean pair of diapers on him.

    Little Kim launching a rocket after Little O's nuke proliferation and World Peace, Why can't we get along? speech.

    That's the tip of the guy we know as Dr. Oh!
    Not bad for his first 9 months.

    Then there is Afghanistan.
    He said this is where we should be fighting.
    His generals seem pissed...

    If you are going to bash Obama through copy/paste you need to at least remove the one's that are flat out ignorant statements. Obama has many faults. There is no reason to make things up and lose credibility.

    Moral has been down long before Obama took office. There has not been any significant drop in 2009 when compared to the past 8 years.

    He called the officer's actions stupid and Obama didn't know

    The limited defense field Bush proposed was scraped to make use of a more versatile and supposedly more effiective system. Defense Sectretary Gates has been a huge advocate of this new system.

    So UK, Germany, Austria, Israel, AUstralia, New Zealand, Neatherlands, Canada, etc. all have failed health care systems? They seem to be working pretty well to me.

    And if Chicago would have won I'm sure you would have been attacking Obama for costing Chicago billions of dollars. And when Chicao ended up making money from the games since they don't need to spend the billions to build a non-existant infastructure you would have attacked him for Phelps only getting 8 instead of 9 medals.

    Protests in a nation we have no jursidiction in. Any and every response was to be purely humanitarian. WOuld you be ok with Iran intejecting in protests in the US?
