Who's "coalition" building now?

Back in the early days of the War on Terror, Democrats and the Bash Bush Bus made fun of his "coalition of the willing" because the 15,000 troops represented in Iraq by all the nations (minus the US and UK) was considered laughable. Prs. Obama has been doing his own coalition building recently. Of course, his job is much easier since Afghanistan is the popular front in the war on...er... international strugge against... um, War on knights who say "ni"... Anyway.. his job is easier since Afghanistan is the "good war"... So how many troops did the "Obama effect" motivate the countries of the EU to add to the pot? 5000? Don't get me wrong, each of the troops, officers and civilians who have served, serve now and who will serve deserve our respect and admiration. Each are putting their lives on the line, fighting, working and sacrificing for the freedom of us all. Don't take this as any kind of shot at the troops in harms way... anywhere. My point is merely yet another comparisan between the incompetent press's treatment of Prs. Bush's actions compared to Prs. Obama's. The gaggle of ghouls that call themselves "journalists" just couldn't choke out a friendly sentiment towards Prs. Bush, but would gladly take a bullet rather than speak the truth about Obama. We all know that 15,000 is less than 5000 anyway... right?

Most journalist in the United States on national news tend to be liberal. I do not trust anything that they say. Many years from now the TV journalists will probably be still talking about what an awful president Bush was, and how great "president" Obama was. You never hear the TV journalists interviewing Obama's Kenyan relatives who say that Obama was born over there in Kenya or investigate Obama's adoption by his Indonesian stepdad. The TV journalists apparently do not want to point out that Obama may not really be the elected president of the United States.

American media doesn't want to point out anything negative that Obama has done, with the exception of one or two.

We were told back in 2008 that the USA needed Obama because he can improve US relations with the rest of the world. We keep getting told that the whole world just loves this guy and we should vote for Obama because the world wants Obama to be our President. Yet when Obama call upon the world to share the load of fighting over in Afghanistan no one is a fan of Obama.

I do not understand how blind a group of people can be. They must only be reading the stuff they themselves are writing. The truth is out there guys. Obama is killing this country along with the help of the Congress and his Trilateral advisors amoung others. You need to come out of your tinkerbellands occasionally and grab hold of reality.
