The President has never been committed to the war. The only reason he stuck to Bush’s plan is he thought if he just left Afghanistan when he came into office, he would have never got elected. So we stayed and he gave a half hearted attempt for a surge. Instead of killing all the Taliban they wanted a negotiated settlement. He set a arbitrary timetable to get out of there. Now the Taliban doesnt want to negotiate, they just want us to leave. You cant trust liberals to fight wars. They will botch it up every time.
Krugman the village idiot at the New York Times wants to make fun of the Republicans wanting to drill our way out of the crisis. Frankly I would like to see us try. The enviromentalists extremists who infest this administration doesnt have a clue about how the real world lives. They just care about forcing their view of life on you while driving around in their limousine and sipping on wine and cheese.
This is a guy who thinks the election will comes down to 45000 people in North Carolina.
But like Rush said if you dont get your base out these 45,000 are going to make a difference
