    "OBAMA LIED AND AMERICANS DIED"

    Hmm, that would look good on a protest sign.

    Either troop strength isn't the only problem, or it isn't even the problem to begin with, since things haven't dramatically improved since he increased our troop strength there by 50%.

    Given that, it would be irresponsible in the extreme for him to simply order that more troops be sent in without taking the time to think about the situation. If he did so simply because his general asked for the men, and in so doing got more Americans killed without any appreciable gains, that blood would be on his hands.

    Giving your general on the ground everything he wants isn't your job as President. We have a military which is controlled by a civillian for a reason.


    poop or get off the pot. Troops are dying while he fiddles.

    Because he hates the military and wants it to die.

    Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.




    Wrong. He added troops, then forgot about Afghanistan. Feel free to prove me wrong.

    Well, since you're the one making the accusation that Obama is doing nothing while our troops die in the field, and that he forgot about Afghanistan, I'd say the onus is on you to prove your claims.

    If reading Reagan's Presidential diaries taught me nothing else, it's that the President isn't allowed to forget about much of anything that is on his plate.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    This is more than a debate to me. This is a disgusting lack of leadership shown by the POTUS. My friends, and brothers and sisters are in harms way with no mission.

    He is on leno, 50 tv appearances, and losing the olympics.... He has shown to us where his priorities lie.


    Do you have any evidence that he is giving afghanistan the same attention he has given his own ego and the olympics?

    Priorities.

    Wrong, try again.

    You're making the accusation that he forgot about Afghanistan, now you need to pony up the evidence which backs your claim.

    The fact that he has had the temerity to (gasp) do other things doesn't mean he's forgotten about Afghanistan or that it isn't important to him or that he isn't spending time on it every day.

    Another thing which I learned by reading Reagan's diaries is that the President is only visible to the public for so much of the day, and even if his appearances or his speeches for the day seem to focus on one subject, when he's off-camera he's working on a wide range of topics with his advisors.

    At any rate, I look forward to your Earth-shattering expose of President Obama's private schedule, or perhaps a behind-the-scenes transcript of a meeting with his military advisors.
