Frankly, the problem with Conservative minded people is that they think stalling something will make it go away. If anything I can't wait to hear a decade from now how all these GOPers are going to justify their arguments in support of this policy.

    So sitting in the pentagon is being with the troops?

    You mean they never came up the ranks, they just started as generals and admirals?

    A whole year in office? It may have something to do with him having to deal with so many domestic and economic issues.

    It might have to do with blaming Bush as an excuse to do nothing.

    Bush did leave an unparalleled pile of tidying up to be urgently dealt with. The collapse of the world economic system and stuff.
    Don't work out, work in.
