Bravely Backing Barack

So I sat through the entire Obama Afghanistan speech and didn't get pissed off once.
~
Finally, he has decided to identify the problem as American and not resort to a Bush bashing cop out.
~
I have personally believed that we should get out of Afghanistan, but I got the distinct feeling that the President is operating with information that I don't have. (And I certainly hope this is the case.)
~
  His references to Pakistan are particularly telling and he gave me the impression that we will be interacting far more closely with that nuclear power.
~
Let's face it..... it's only a matter of time before one of these Osama wannabee, medieval, misfits stumbles onto a nuclear warhead from one of the less stable members of the Nuclear Club.   So it probably makes to sense to stay as close by as possible.
~
That's my take from the President's newly outlined Afghanistan policy.  I'll back Barack, despite my past revulsion .... now that he has stopped the finger pointing and taken responsibility.  America is a flawed nation, with a birth of liberty amongst slaveholders.  There is plenty to blame if you decide that you are not up to the task of dealing with the present.
~
Maybe I'm wrong, but BO seems like he decided to stop campaigning and became President tonight.

Afghanistan is a bunch of rocks. It mean nothing other than as a staging ground. Its about Pakistan and Iran having nukes. Same with the invasion of Iraq. Nothing has changed but the spin. Love how Barry deems the analogy to Vietnam to be wrong because it depends on a false reading of history. Academic much? Sound like Bill's "it depends on what the meaning of is, is." We have to be there because the Pakis have nukes and the Iranians all but have them. The gathering storm, it is going to be ugly. Got my bomb shelter built.

Do you win a war by telling your opponent what you are planning? (Don't think so) Do we have to finish what we started in Afganistan? (Absolutley!) Our security depends on it. And our security is at stake...on that point I will agree with our president.
