    Uh can someone tell the President to please postpone his golf game and get back to work? Our kids are being massacred over there in Afghanistan. They need the President's leadership more than ever. Instead of helping our kids over there he's out playing golf and his AG is busy playing that old & tired "Blame Bush" game by investigating our fellow Americans in the CIA. Mr. President,you are losing Afghanistan! Now please put down your golf clubs and get back to work. Our kids need you sir. :(

    the thing being is the people who attacked us on 9/11 were protected by the taliban and hid in afghanistan thus making afghanistan a necessary war while iraq was bush's war of choice and now that we have put our priorities back where they should have always been in the first place sadly our service personnel serving there will be in greater danger.

    Don't you just love the "Obama is on vacation" loonies?

    Ron Paul NEVER takes vacation you know? He is on a permanent vacation from reality

    Our kids are being slaughtered over there in Afghanistan while the President plays Golf and his AG declares War on his own people. Who needs enemies like the Taliban & Al Qaeda when you have Eric Holder? This administration has become a real disaster. So i will just have to ask again...MR. PRESIDENT,PLEASE PUT DOWN YOUR GOLF CLUBS AND GET BACK TO WORK! YOU ARE LOSING AFGHANISTAN SIR! OUR KIDS OVER THERE NEED YOUR LEADERSHIP MORE THAN EVER! Maybe he'll listen this time? Somehow i doubt it though. :(

    Our personnel serving in Afghanistan will be in greater danger in part because of the new policies that this administration has put in place. McChrystal told the Taliban in so many words to hide amongst ordinary citizens and we won't shoot at you.

    Holder is doing his job and investigating incidents of torture as a crime. Nobody is above the law!

    Didn't Tommy Franks run the Afghanistan war from his vacation home in Florida? Not sure if it was his home in florida or his ranch...

    I'm not condoning the OP, this kind of posting puts the poster in the same catagory as those he/she/it is railing against.
    That said, I also understand why. If you were part of the anti-war/anti-Bush cabel your were supporting this kind of rhetoric aimed at Bush every time he took a vacation. Other than partisan pandering what makes it any different from that?
