My Friday isn’t painful enough – I’ve had a headache for almost 2 weeks, and I didn’t sleep well (not that that’s anything new) – but I HAD to read Charles Krauthammer this morning. I love his writing, I love his wit, and I agree with him nearly 100% of the time, including today. It’s not his column that is causing me pain, it’s the putz he talks about in the column.
The Current Occupant – AND the Weasels in Congress who work with him, against ALL the principles of the Constitution – is going to get a whole bunch of Americans killed in Afghanistan, and the reason is what? BECAUSE SOCIALIST REFORMATION OF THE COUNTRY IS MORE IMPORTANT.
A few prime examples:
“Our Afghan policy was focused as much as anything on domestic politics,” an Obama adviser told the New York Times’ Peter Baker. “He would not risk losing the moderate to centrist Democrats in the middle of health insurance reform and he viewed that legislation as the make-or-break legislation for his administration.”
If this is true, then Obama’s military leadership can only be called scandalous. During the past week, 22 Americans were killed over a four-day period in Afghanistan. This is not a place about which decisions should be made in order to placate members of Congress, pass health care and thereby maintain a president’s political standing.
Unfortunately, what for Obama is a distraction is life or death for U.S. troops now on patrol in Kandahar province. Some presidents may not like being wartime leaders. But they don’t get to decide. History does. Obama needs to accept the role. It’s not just the U.S. military, as Baker reports, that is “worried he is not fully invested in the cause.” Our allies, too, are experiencing doubt. And our enemies are drawing sustenance.
BarryO and His Band of CongressWeasels have the blood of Real Americans who love their country on their hands. I won’t forget that.
