Prediction of Obama Afghanistan Policy

Based on the last 10 months with Obama as Commander in Chief, I am making a prediction on what his new policy for Afghanistan is going to be. Basically, even though he was a strong opponent of Prs. Bush's policies in Afghanistan, Obama is going to continue the same policies. His offense will continue to rely heavily on special operations units conducting covert ops, while his defense strategy will be the job of conventional troops. After swearing that the Iraq "surge" strategy wouldn't work, and insisting it didn't work, he will deploy more troops and run a "surge" of his own. What I doubt he will do anytime soon will define "victory" or set anything resembling a "time table". In other words, he'll pretty much do everything he trashed Bush over.

"Still piling on with the crap about" Obama? "Most of what you" state here is conjecture. "But I'm sure you won't let" that "get in the way of your bigotry." "There is no difference between how you are with" Obama "and how a KKK member treats Black people." Look familiar?

Spalladino, aparently you pick and choose your "facts". Yes, I said all that about Annie, and I stand by it. You are wrong though. I have supported Obama at times. The little bigot Annie wouldn't support Palin or her family on anything. Now, if you'd like to actually make a valid point, I'm all eyes. Or are you too busy looking like an idiot?

Actually, Ted, you're the one who looks like an idiot every time you come riding in on your indignant colored horse to attack anyone who criticizes Palin. Anyone with a negative opinion about her is subject to your wrath and name calling yet you've been free to express yours with no repercussions. It doesn't matter how many times or when you've supported Obama...when the shoe fits, it fits.

Obama isn't going to do anything to help our men and women in the armed forces, he proved that when he wouldn't listen to the Generals that told him we need more troups over there...... He is a coward and a liar exvice president Chenney told him basicly to send them and make up his own mind but that coward won't do it....He doesn't know how to make that kind of decision......He's just a yes man for all the America Haters he has a Czars........ He only knows how to throw a party and drink achol in the White House......The sooner they start impeaching him the better......Basicaly we have a looser for a president.....

That seems to be the consensus. Go figure, once you get the facts, maybe the Bush Admin was right?

What's this Rahm garbage about Bush's policies having nothing to do this this, and Afghanistan being "their" tactics? Okay, so maybe some people--myself included, to an extent--don't want to credit ANYONE for a war. But to just discredit someone (in the same breath as discrediting Fox and subsequently its viewers) for purely partisan reasons who's OUT OF OFFICE is just silly. Of course he'll do everything that he was bashing Bush about. This isn't an Obama bash, although MSNBC would devote a week's worth of coverage to me for saying this if I were famous, but Obama's lack of experience shows. Okay, so Bush wasn't B.A. from the A-Team, either, but it's about listening to people who know what they're talking about on the ground there! I think it separates the community organizers from the Presidential-material politicians when you're waiting on polling and support and distracting all while avoiding a decision that's costing many Afghan and American lives! President Obama, do what needs to be done abroad for the sake of lives saved! If you want to be a run-of-the-mill politician, do that here on your all-liberal news shows and bash Fox and your opposition some more.
