  • "Obama agreed to McChrystal's request for more troops in December, saying he would deploy another 30,000 soldiers to Afghanistan by the summer of 2010. But he also indicated the troops would begin returning home after 18 months."

  • He's there now? I thought there was some rule about the President not being directly in war zones for obvious reasons.

  • If he needs to!

    If they need the troops and he asks for it what's wrong about that? Seriously! If he need them he'd be a fool not to ask. Yet if he needs them... MANY Obama haters will twist it to benefit their Obama hatefest, like sore loosers!

    LOL..actually people voted FOR Obama, because he PROMISED to end the war, and bring ALL troops home...he neglected to say he was sending them to Afghanistan!


    As an "Obama hater" I think our troops SHOULD be where they are until they get the job done! It's the "Obama lovers" that hate that he rescinded his promise!

    President Obama NEVER promised to end teh war in Afghanastan! Please watch BOTH debates, he talked about his plans and he has followed through,,,,NEVER said he would bring all the troops home, EVER

  • I've had enough of him for the week. As soon as he started to talk, I changed the channel. Now watching a House marathon. So much more interesting than listening to another campaign speech.
