Obamas lack of leadership is McChrystals fault? Oh and of course GWB is always thrown in there as at fault too lol

Somehow Obama's lack of leadership on the war is not an issue. It's all McChrystals fault. These media types have no class whatsoever. Vile, filthy, rotten scum!

TIME
Unlike the chattering classes, senior military officers didn't raise an eyebrow when General Stanley McChrystal recently said he had only spoken once to President Obama since assuming command in Afghanistan. The military chain of command is there for a reason, and Obama seems to be sticking to it more faithfully than President George W. Bush did. But tensions are inevitable as the troop needs of U.S. commanders on the ground come up against the reservations of a political leadership increasingly leery of being trapped in an Afghan quagmire.

  • BO needs to get off his butt and make a real decision for a change. Do we get more troops and get the job done, or do we tuck our tail and run?

  • Some have argued that McChrystal violated military protocol by giving a speech in London last week emphasizing the need for more forces in Afghanistan at a time when that issue is the subject of hot debate inside the Administration. Obama, who convenes two key strategy meetings on Afghanistan this week, held an unusual meeting with McChrystal last Friday. (There was no dressing down, contrary to the suggestion in some media reports.) (See TIME's photo-essay "A Photographer's Personal Journey Through War.")

  • Obama's ability to lead is opinion. Don't forget that. I have to believe he's doing a great job.

    I have no problem with it, Its the proper way to discuss someone Else's word without our own spin. But your posse always adds that to my questions, so I was being facetious

    I COMPLETELY agree. We are leaving them in harms way (even more so) with no one stepping up to the plate.
