    Where is Harry Reid with the "war is lost?"

    Where is John Murtha's cries of murder when Obama drones kill innocents?

    Where are the funding games and timeline demands from this Congress?

    Where is the first benchmark so prevalent and necessary during Iraq's tough days?

    Oh...here......I found where the Democrats are:

    "Whatever decision you make, we'll support it." from Harry Reid.

    Oh look...Hillary:

    "It's important that at the end of the day that the president makes a decision that he believes in,"

    ........a decision "he" believes in, is that what Hillary said? Remember when she thought there were 545 Commanders in Chief? Remember in 2007 when she tried to revoke her authorization for war in Iraq?

    Oh looksy......this from the media dariling Robert Gibbs:

    "The president is going to make a decision popular or unpopular based on what he thinks is in the best interests of the country,"

    Really, Bob? Well, don't that make ALL of you hypocritical jokes! What circus clowns we now have running the show, what hypocrites!
    Your entire post relies on the one fact that you have failed to prove, that the current strategy is failing. I haven't seen any evidence that our military efforts will fail if McChrystal was given the resources he requested.

    Changing strategy does not equate to the current strategy failing. Sometimes there is just a better strategy that produces better benefits in the short term or long term.

    IMHO, I would rather us focus on Al-Q and eliminating the group that attacked us in 2001 then liberating a country that doesn't care to try and liberate themselves.

    Well. They are over. It's time to do right by those who are in harms way.
    Seems to me that the troops might be being used as an intimidation tactic in this election.

    Yes. As long as you don't admit it.

    He ran the election and the idiot opposing him was the coward who backed out.

    You can't argue with these results.

    To you it may not be, but to those who were planning to profit from it, it is a VERY good reason!

    Of course it is to them. I personally don't' believe a countries civilian military shouldn't be used to gain advantages for corporations. That's just me though.
