Thank you, we think alike ...it just comes out a lot better when YOU post it

Good point. Ironic that some of the people who spent the last year shouting "Country First" now refuse to actually follow those words.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates warns against testing Obama:

"Mr. Gates, who was speaking at a conference on regional security, said that Mr. Obama and his advisers had done more extensive planning across the government for the transition than any other incoming administration he could remember and asserted that they would therefore be prepared from their first day in office. Mr. Gates, who is staying on as defense secretary, has worked for seven presidents; Mr. Obama will be his eighth.

“So anyone who thought that the upcoming months might present opportunities to ‘test’ the new president would be sorely mistaken,” "
