    Just because he takes more time to make a decision, won't make it anymore the right decision.

    Is that why Bush and Cheney didn't honor requests for troops increases?.To set President Obama and America up for failure in Afghanistan and give the Right another reason to Diss our country?

    Their puppet goverment in Afghanistan seems to be supporting that option.

    I think the extra time will give him a better chance at making the right decision than just a "Cowboy" shooting from the hip did. While there's never a guarantee in these things...I trust Obama's personal intelligence far more than his predecessor's.

    Not neccessarily. The extra time could cost us the window of oppurtunity. Once that time passes, ther may be no right decision.

    Newsflash: things aren't improving in Afghanistan.

    I don't know that is one. If one existed, it may still be open, it may have closed already, but if there is an oppurtunity, the dynamics of the battlefield aren't going to allow that oppurtunity to just sit there, waiting on PBO to get his head out of his ass. My overall point is, all this waiting around isn't anymore of a guarantee of success. In the end, we all know it's not about making the, "right", decision, as in what's best for the war effort. It's about making the, "most politically correct", decision, as in what's best for PBO's re-election. He has to stop campaigning and start leading. He wanted to be Commander in Chief? Then, goddamnit, command!

    He is commanding...you just aren't used to seeing it done properly with a sound presence of mind and a firm belief that one's decisions affect the moral of the country and the troops as a whole and not just suits the needs of one parties political motives and ambitions.

    Watch and learn Apdst.

    Believe me we all understand that when The President makes the final decisions the right is ready to just jump on board and be supportive of him and their country....Right?

    I know of no time when "the right" has rooted for the nation to fail in war because of who's President.
