    JustOneMinute: Obama's Winning!

    I know it's beyond the 'acceptable' and no problem if mods cut it. I just couldn't.

    He does deserve credit, that much is for sure. I just wish he had done this years ago.

    Obama's Winning? Oh brother. Watching Obama and his adoring press is better than any comedy show on TV today. Obama is the new Jimmy Carter. He'll go down in history as the first AA President, but that'll be about it.

    That must have been a tad difficult. Good for you. I'm going to bed, way late.

    We went into Afghanistan too late to get Osama Bin Laden, we went into Iraq with no plan, practically no resources, and left our soldiers in both places in high danger.

    Bush made things worse in both places by taking certain actions. He may of considered himself a war President but the guy couldn't win a game of Risk if he had Europe and Asia.

    If and when we do end up winning in Afghanistan, it will be due to a resources war that will we pay the price for in both troops and resources. Not because of strategy or anything else like say in World War II.

    And this begins the excuses to why no 'Afghanistan' surge and getting Bin Laden. I must confess, the earlier posts took me by surprise, now I know why.

    Whiplash.
