  • Well instead of him being on The View Thursday, he should be thinking about other things that need to be taken care of. I think he thinks he is a movie star.

  • He is. Do you have a link that says otherwise?

  • No he did not if you are talking about Afghanistan. During his campaign he said numerous times that he was going to shift the focus on Afghanistan.

  • There's another surge going on? Do you have a link for this? Or are you talking about the rotations in and out of Afghanistan that have been per the norm for the past nine years?

    Answer by BlueCollarMama at 8:44 PM on Jul. 28, 2010

  • Well he's "supposed" to be withdrawing the troops by 2012 because right now he's sending more over there (30,000 a year) to train the Afghan Army (whatever they're called). Obama said that they should be pretty self-sufficient by 2012 (with all the ass-kissing they've been getting, they should be already IMO) and they won't be needing our assistance anymore. SO like everything, we'll just have to wait and see.

  • Unless there is a NEW and current LINK...I am just going to say "This is old news and it is dragged out in order for you guys to continue your bashing of the President". True?

  • Are you speaking of Iraq or Afghanistan?

    He has kept his promise with both places...did you watch the debates?
