    Oh boy.

    Ann Coulter

    Bill Kristol Must Resign


    Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele was absolutely right. Afghanistan is Obama's war and, judging by other recent Democratic ventures in military affairs, isn't likely to turn out well....

    Townhall - Bill Kristol Must Resign

    The Great Right Schism gets Schism-ier.

    Well, she is right in that the GOP needs to shed itself of smarmy little neocon weasels like Kristol.

    That she took the circuitous and not-terribly-funny route to come to that conclusion is what she does for a living.

    I guess it's times like these when you find out who has actually been on the GOP dole for all these years.

    You think that's really what happened?

    I mean, few pundits were as Hawkish as "We should invade their countries and convert them to Christianity" Coulter.

    She's a typical snobby East Coast Republican who doesn't know her ass from a hole in the ground.

    And so goes the republicans rewrite of history.

    It never stops and their minions will believe anything they are told to believe no matter how many facts have to be ignored

    True as that may be, she still has a dead aim....Albeit as part of the circular firing squad. :lol:

    Not to nit pick but the current neo-conista incarnation of the house Kristol is a journalist, god pappy neo-con Kristol (the really dangerous prick) is dead and buried. Personally I'm all for leaving Billy K. in his current gigs since I'd rather know what the current prince of the neo-cons is thinking than have him sneaking around in the shadows passing out PNAC papers or whatever other nefarious fantasies happen to cross his mind. :razz:

    Obama didn't start Afghanistan, But he chose to send more troops and commit to it once elected. His party also voted to go to war there in the first place.

    What is amazing to me is you guys actually think Obama has no responsibility here.

    I think he was right when he called it Obama's war of Choice. Obama ran for office saying he would get us out of Iraq, and send more troops to Afghanistan. Sure sounds like the war he chose to me. However I do admit the way he(steel) said it made it sound like it was Obama's War....no It was America's War. Obama just chose to send more troops and commit to winning it.

    Steele's statements were factually inaccurate. Without a doubt, Obama is the CINC now. However, to try and ignore the fact that we've been in Afghanistan since '02 and that our current situation is directly tied to that.

    Who has said Obama has "no responsibility"?

    That's as asinine as ignore the fact that he inherited a fucking mess from the guy who basically had Afghanistan on auto pilot.

    Gee, going into the "Graveyard of Superpowers" and then deciding to divide your efforts.

    Brilliant. Just brilliant.
