In office 9 months, only now is the President giving any formal thought time to the war in Afghanistan. Yes we needed a fiscal bailout to stay financially viable. But cap and trade, Health Care Reform – ahead of a war that has seen a marked increase in the death of our soldiers?
Tonight on LOU DOBBS, a White House reporter noted that the decision to send more troops as requested by General Mchrystal was under consideration. The consideration period may last a few more weeks. The President was quoted as saying something like:
“We don’t want to do it fast; we want to do it right. We don’t want to make a political decision.” Oh, that these words had been attached to his Health Care Reform effort.
