    Obama's Minions Are Ingrates

    Obama's Minions Are Ingrates
    On October 18, White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel appeared on the Sunday morning talk shows and, in the process of answering questions about Barack Obama's strategy on Afghanistan, accused the Bush administration of failing to ask the most basic questions about that country and our war there.

    Jones asked Hadley not to release the results of the Lute review so that his boss would have more flexibility when it came time to provide direction for the U.S. presence in Afghanistan. Bush officials reasoned that Obama was more likely to heed their advice if he could simply adopt their recommendations without having to acknowledge that they came from the Bush White House. So Hadley agreed.

    "Mr. Emanuel either did not know about our review or chose to lie about it," says Eliot Cohen, who served as counselor to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and was one of the principal participants in the Lute review. Virtually nobody believes Emanuel is clueless...
    Lies, lies and more lies.

    Emanuel actually made a valid point in a round about way. According to the OP Bush didn't do a full review supposedly asking all the questions Emanuel was referring to until mid-September to mid-November 2008 via the Lute Review, roughly 7 years after the first combat operations. At that point, late 2008, Bush wouldn't have had time to make the necessary changes that probably should have been made long before the situation in Afghanistan became Obama's problem.

    And that excuse, such as it was, expired in March when Obama declared his new "comprehensive strategy" which he crafted after "careful review."

    It's been Obama's strategy and Obama's ball game ever since.

    It seems to be in their DNA; some are born with a tendency towards alcoholism, others are bred with a tendency towards being a victim.

    The blaming of the Bush Administration is no longer a viable answer to any question involving the current situation. Obama cares more about partying, traveling to COPENHAGEN to promote Chicago, and fund raising than make a decision that will effect the lives of our troops who continue to die while he is pointing fingers rather than doing his job. He needs to either take the advise of the men who know how to fight and win a war or admit he's in over his head and resign the office he's clearly not qualified to hold.
    His minions continue to obfuscate while our young people die it's a disgrace.

    Alcoholism is personal behavior, I dont buy into the whole genetic theory.

    The right really looks silly arguing this issue..With all of the "Bush Who" lamebrain nonsense...

    Let's just look back and ask ourselves just how long they tried to explain away all of their faults and failures by using Clinton's penis as a crutch?
    For years all we heard that "It wasn't our fault it was Clinton's penis".

    You people really need to learn that the nation is going to have a very hard time ever trusting your party again with making decisions that concern the "Health and Well Being" of our men and woman in uniform. Unless you find a way to conjure up the guts and dignity to be able to admit to your faults and failures, learn from them, and move forward in a POSITIVE manner with everybody's interests being top priority..Not just the self serving needs of your own party....AGAIN.
