President's Address

As I'm sitting and watching this the pres is saying that we have accomplished our goal over there, have we?

Who has gone over there and what do you think?

What's going to happen next in Iraq and with the shift to Afghanistan?


I've been to Iraq and Afghanistan and have my own opinions on both, interested to hear what you all think.

I think we're in Afghanistan to protect the drug trade. It's not a secret that Karzai's brother is a big time heroin slinger.

Government officials, republican or democrat, are not in the business of telling the truth. Check out LewRockwell.com for some insightful commentary.

Another liar.
I don't want to get into a political debate, but anyone who believes a politician from Chicago is honest and not connected to the shit from this state is an idiot. This guy is so clueless it makes me sick to my stomach and frankly, lies are the least of our worries. I'd rather be lied to on purpose than have an idiot be turned into a liar because he cannot live up to his BS promises.

I haven't been there, but know some that have and/or are there now. Personally, I think it'll go downhill fast. Accomplishing our mission from the standpoint of taking out Saddam's rule: okay. However, I would be surprised to see their government stand up and I also don't see the Iraqi forces passing the litmus test anytime soon.

I'll take our current president over the last one that presided over the worst 8 years in America's history any day of week. At least he doesn't appear to be a bumbling idiot when he speaks.

Because the way someone speaks directly reflects upon their views and the decisions they make, right?

I think it's pretty clear that the views and decisions of "dubya" were even worse than his moronic bumbling while speaking.

Sure he does, when his teleprompters crash or don't work right. Just search YouTube for "Obama teleprompter" and you get all kinds of instances of him talking poorly.

Or, when he is calling a Navy Corpsman a "corpse man". Or that he visited "57 states with 1 left to go", or.....

I feel sorry for those troops who *THOUGHT* they were going home and are now sent to Afghanistan. At least in Iraq there were some buildings to get out of the sun, and sometimes a palace to occupy. Don't know that I've seen any palaces in the footage from Afghanistan. . .

Again, to anyone serving our leaders' whims, THANK YOU!!!!!!
