    Indeed.

    So you assume some one with less information about a situation is making the right decision, while some one with more information than her, you or I is wrong.

    I hope Obama says he'll send more troops if Congress raises taxes on the rich to pay for them.

    Unexplained accusations of childishness are themselves childish. I don't see why it is wrong to be annoyed with politicizing these sentiments.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    She didn't. You just made that up. What she said was

    "It's time we do something. This has gone on too long. They either need to come home or we need to end it," a tearful Denise Sherman said.

    Anyway, we just have to bring them home then, because this probably won't end soon no matter what Obama does.

    I don't trust Obama, he a noob and it shows. BTW, I hope Obama fails.

    Here's the harsh, hard, cynical reality.

    Obama should listen and empathize to this woman, but he should not make his judgement on her words.

    likewise

    Bush should've listened and empathized with the words of parents saying "end it" (IE bring the troops home), but he should not have made judgements based on their words.

    A Presidents judgements and duties are to this country, as a whole, the security of people, as a whole, and those things singularly first. The lives of an individual soldier, or the grief of individual parents, can not singularly weigh on a President so much to influence their decision on what to do for the safety of the country.

    This was true under Bush when parents were telling him "End it...bring our kids home" and it holds true under Obama when parents were telling him "End it...send them more troops".

    Parents are not the commander in chief and we should not suddenly believe their words hold amazingly more value and power to them when the person saying it is saying something we agree with rather than disagree with.
