    Sometimes you can only Guess at these things.

    I believe the reason Obama hasn't made a decision on Afghanistan is that he doesn't want to upset his liberal base.

    He wants Obamacare to pass, the election in Virginia and New Jersey to take place and he's afraid that if he sends troops to Afghanistan his base will be disillusioned and wont turn out to vote.

    I'm sure that's a big part of it. Look for some sort of Half-Measure on this whole troops debate. This President has only been Half-Hearted in his dedication to helping our kids win over there in Afghanistan. So his troop decision will likely be more of the same Half-Hearted commitment. It really is so sad to see our kids being treated this way. What are they fighting for? Where's the leadership from their Commander in Chief? I say just bring them home right now. This President is not fully committed to helping our kids over there so it's time for them to come home. Besides this President is far too busy waging War against his own people here at home to actually take the time to help our kids win a War over there. Very sad stuff.

    Ah yes Mr Transparency.

    We are now being told he has a plan. or another new plan. or his hand picked General has a plan, but it's not his plan or is it Biden had a plan and then it wasn't but then This other General said, and and and....

    OBAMA; Not good for our troops.

    Thank you for your sacrifices to our country, Sir.
