    So let me get your logic straight. You are not happy with Obama for taking so long to figure out what his strategy is concerning Afghanistan, but will accept no criticism about that fact pointed at Obama because you don't think that repubs complained when Bush had forsaken Afghanistan in favor of winning in Iraq. Hmmmm....Sounds pretty thin to me.

    How am I accepting no criticism of Obama. I just am pointing out that the people that are so "outraged" by this, are the same folks that didn't have a ****ing word to say about it when Bush did it.

    Seems to me it is the right that won't accept criticism.

    No, you just assume that to make you feel better.

    Irrelevant trolling from apdst. Your inability to follow a conversation/debate becomes more and more obvious with every one of your posts.

    Because you are using that apparent fault to discredit any criticism now, even though you, yourself are unhappy with how Obama is handling the situation. What Bush did, or didn't do should have NO bearing on today, and the here and now. In fact the only reason to bring it up is to deflect from the weakness of Obama's position now.

    You mean partisanship like complaing when Obama does it, but not when Bush did it. Yes, I agree that is partisanship.

    It has every bearing. It shows the hypocrisy of many on the right. That is the reason you hate it, because it is true.

    Ok, I am a conservative, and I think Bush was wrong for ignoring Afghanistan, and always have. I know there is no way for you to verify that because I only recently started posting here, but does that make it any different? I mean aren't the troops the ones that are suffering right now?
