    Because Prof you said "tell it to Obama" reread your past posts in this thread.

    I simply told you what I would tell the President given a chance...

    White House rejects Cheney?s war criticism - White House- msnbc.com

    WASHINGTON - The White House on Thursday forcefully rejected criticism from former Vice President Dick Cheney and other Republicans that President Barack Obama's Afghanistan decision is taking too long.

    "What Vice President Cheney calls dithering, President Obama calls his solemn responsibility to the men and women in uniform and to the American public," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said. "I think we've all seen what happens when somebody doesn't take that responsibility seriously."

    Obama is nearing a decision on whether to significantly expand the U.S. war posture in Afghanistan by honoring a military request for thousands of additional forces. The decision had been expected as early as mid-August, when Obama's new war commander prepared a harsh assessment of deteriorating conditions in the 8-year-old conflict, and now is expected in what Gibbs calls "the coming weeks."



    _________________________________

    This response from the Whitehouse is entirely appropriate.

    I supported him with my vote.

    I support him with the confidence that he is not going to ignore our past mistakes and make every attempt not to repeat them...for the sake of our troops. For the sake of our country.

    Re: Cheney: Stop ‘dithering’ on Afghanistan troops

    Here's my idea:

    We have Obama find Bush's old banner & have him stan in front of it as he tells us we won in Afghanistan & he's bringing all our troops home for a big parade!

    The two events were unrelated. Shinseli recommanded 600,000 for the invasion and initial occupation. These recommendations were not followed. It turns out these extra troops were not needed. The invasion and over 3 years of occupation were handled readily by the troops in theater. It was only after a civil war had started that the idea of a change in strategy, to a counterinsurgency strategy, was contemplated. Along with that change in strategy was a change in deployment posture in theater and that change in deployment posture required a surge of troops. It was completely unrelated to Shinseki's initial troop estimate.

    Re: Cheney: Stop ‘dithering’ on Afghanistan troops

    Another thing that happened was the then ex-vp held off being critical of Cheney's policies reguarding Afghanistan or Iraq until 2003. Unlike Cheney who didn't wait a day until he started flapping his lip about President Obama. A first in our history. President Obama did not create Cheney's legacy..Cheney did but in true Republican fashion Cheney will try to blame everybody else for his dismal legacy.

    He refuses to have real non-softball interviews with any other News agency besides Fox News. He makes these speeches for money and insists on making these continuous lame blanket statements attacking the Commander in Chief during wartime. Based on nothing but old gezzer paranoia.

    I think Cheney should at least have the guts to have a real inteview and answer some real questions.

    Cheney....Guts??

    He's the guy that got SEVEN deferments to keep his butt out of having to fight in Vietnam, right?

    He's the guy who shoots a friend in the face with a shotgun........& then goes home to sleep it off so the cops won't "Breathalyze" him.

    No sir.......Guts has never been Cheney's forte. (Offshore bank deposits from Haliburton, KBR & Blackwater is his forte)
