    I thought that, in light of the most recent tragic loss of American lives in Afghanistan, this was fitting:
    http://reason.com/archives/2011/08/08/obama-gets-a-blank-check-for-e

    That's right, more Americans have died in Afghanistan in his 2.5 years of leadership, than in the entire 8 years under Bush. "He's a warmonger, he's sending our children off to die in wars for oil, politicians never send their own kids to war..." Things you will never hear about Obama.

    The liberals and democrats are anti republican war. They aren't anti war as long as their guy is running them and even then they just say that its not really a war (Libya) or they say its Bushes fault.

    Sheehan still protests and says all the people that were with her when Bush was president went away even though the wars are still here. The last time she got media attention was when she went to Dick Cheney's in early 2010.

    I find it odd that, gutsycall.com...which used to link to Obama's website but was pulled after the right started complaining (more mocking)...now links back to the Obama campaign website. Again, not saying it's run by a dem operative, but, puhlease.

    I also find it odd how the White House is involved in the Osama movie and how they're going to release the movie about Obama's gutsy call a month before the election.

    Pure coincidence, I'm sure. Boy, I sure hope the movie doesn't paint Obama as the indecisive dolt that he apparently was. But, since the Obama campaign, err, Obama administration is providing all of the classified details of this mission...oh, I'm sure it's not going to be a problem.

    The Code Pink gang has been too busy giving money to Hamas terrorists to protest.

    Unfortunately, the one question that should have been raised was "Why the fuck are you counting the first three years of the Bush presidency?"

    We didn't invade Afghanistan until almost a year into Bush's presidency. And Iraq until the end of March of 2003 and even the first couple of months of both wars were relatively low casualties because of the "shock and awe" type of warfare involved.

    Since this "journalist" would rather push an agenda than actually do his job I'll do it for him. From March 2003 until February 2006 there were 2,298 Americans killed in Iraq, the first "full three years" of the Iraq war. To correlate it to Obama's numbers of 2.5 years, the figure is 1,884. And that's just Iraq. "Only" about 150 Americans died in Afghanistan in the 2.5-3.0 years of that war but we also had less than 20,000 troops there the first three years of that war.

    And I pulled the numbers from the same place he did:
    http://icasualties.org/Iraq/ByMonth.aspx

    Shame too, the guy made a couple of otherwise decent points.

    I was thinking more along the lines of Denzel as Obama...and it'll have a bit of a Thirteen Days feel to it, where Obama will struggle with the thought of possibly putting men in harm's way, but ultimately makes that gutsy call and he runs the entire operation from the White House.

    Cuba Gooding Jr was pretty riveting as Radio from the 2003 movie, "Radio". I think that would be the perfect "character" to play the role of Obama. And maybe have him show up in the first 5 mins of the movie, then only re-appear in the final 15 minutes...ya know...cuz Obama spent like, 16 hours "sleeping on" this decision.

    Yeah, I thought that part of the story was bullshit too, that 's why I only commented on the part about Afghanistan. That is like saying "there were no deaths in Iraq in Bush's first 8 months in office, there were 60 (or whatever) in Obama's first 8 months." It's a little misleading.
    You did comment that in the first three years of Afghanistan, we only had about 20,000 troops there. That is true, but if you are using that to defend the Obama numbers, you have to remember that he is the one who decided to have an Afghanistan surge and send all those extra people there, in the first place. So if the numbers are way higher in Afghanistan, it is because Obama raised them and he has to own the results.

    Yes, and he campaigned on it too.

    So if the people who voted for him knew he was going to be drawing down our troops in Iraq to refocus on Afghanistan, why should they be all that outraged? He flat out told everyone in a national debate that he'd be sending extra troops and committing more resources there if he was elected. And when he was "dithering" about even more troops with the Afghan Surge, there were leftist protestors who were upset about that.

    Plus, sometimes the media will cut either the new guy, or a new plan, a break if they think it may be working. Even Fox News did after "The Surge" started showing some success...

    Sorry. Did I say Fox News? I meant the NY Times. :icon_cool

    I dunno...maybe because he was also telling the gullible fucks that voted for him, that he was going to immediately start withdrawing troops...



    The problem was, this liar would tell HIS audience one thing at a campaign stop...then give a more balanced solution at the debates. Talk about "dithering".

    Remember that Obama zombie at that school picking on that kid whose father was in Iraq? She was blabbing on about how McCain would continue those wars and Obama was going to bring them home. That's exactly what the Obama voters were tricked into thinking because Stupid told them so.

    Speaking of lies Obama told, remember this whopper?

    "That's why I am pledging to cut the deficit, that we inherited (blame Bush, of course), by half by the end of my first term in office.."
    Well, since the current deficit is over $1 trillion and he has a little over a year left, I guess the $500 billion cut must be just around the corner.

    All of these things sound great when you have no intention of following through with them. I keep telling my wife I'm going to get my degree as a medical doctor fighter pilot shark wrangler by our 5th anniversary. She is so excited and I love her for her encouragement and support.

    That was a terrific performance. He was really good back then...that was during the whole stimulus scam, where he and the progressives were quickly trying to sneak $800B in stimulus spending through. Ya know, that whole, "Hey everybody, I know it's 11 o'clock at night, but here's that 2,000+ page stimulus package...read it and oh, we'll vote on it in about 12 hours. Sleep tight, and have a good night!"

    Literally the only reason I voted Bush in 04 was because of his pro-war stance. Otherwise, I would have voted for just about anyone else, just to get his embarrassing dumb ass the hell away from representing the US. I figured with a democratic administration in for 4 or 8 years, we'd kind of pull back and regroup our armed forces a little bit, let the savages think we're turning over a new leaf, and regain some faith from the rest of the world (they're sissies who are afraid to face reality, but there are lots of them). Well that obviously didn't happen, but I'm far from unhappy that this administration continued to keep the pressure on. It's something I really didn't expect and I'm pleasantly surprised.

    We now return you to silly partisan blame game horseshit.

    I'm coming to believe that you partisan bickerers are close to losing your collective minds. Way to stay focused on the things that actually matter, you petty bitter psychopaths.

    Does that even matter? Good try. As I said...this is a guy that would pump out the big far left soundbytes at his campaign stops in front of his supporters and then talk up more balanced solutions in front of national audiences. I don't give a fuck if they were two years apart...his supporters were gullible, stupid fucks. He spews this unrealistic bullshit, then they tell all of their friends/neighbors/co-workers/family that this is the guy that's going to end these wars while the other guy will keep us there for 100 years. Fast forward a year later at a debate...Obama's got to act moderate in front of a national audience...you think every one of those drones that think he's going to end the wars is going to pay attention to what he's saying about the wars now? Some will and will end up totally confused, sure. And some others will, but they'll just think he's just saying that to appear more moderate. In general though, it will go completely over the rest of their heads and they'll continue to think that this guy is pulling us out of the wars on his first day and close Gitmo. And that's what the Obama campaign was banking on...moderates thinking he's going to be smart about moving forward in Iraq and Afghanistan, and his zombies thinking that he's going to follow on his promise of pulling our troops out on his first day. Question is, will the same zombies come out and vote for him again in 2012? I think they will because the left is going to scare the shit out of them, making them think the GOP challenger is some monster.
