It's ok I don't take anything to heart here, as you could say something in conversation and have it misconstrued as something else entirely when typing the same thing. I do realize college vocab can be quite advanced considering that's where all of our PHD's come from lol. So, how's college going lol.

You assume ALL Obama supporters think the same thing when it comes to the war.
I never agreed with the war but if it has to go on....at least our energy is going to be focused in the right area. I wouldn't argue that war is the best way to go about things but....I'm only one person.

i thought that most americans wanted to get out of the war altogether and consider it an economic disaster for our country, not to mention the loss of lives of our soldiers. liberals are now advocating going into another country with its associated cost and potential loss of life? i have to say that is a little surprising.

Obama hasn't done anything yet, he isn't in office but I think we all would agree that Osama bin Laden still being free is a slap in the face of each and everyone who suffered and died on 911.
All that bait and switch BS with 911 being related to Iraq is over now and the reality can be confronted.

With all due respect, if you didn't know that Obama was for increased troop involvement in Afghanistan, you weren't paying attention.

I understand Iraq is costing billions but to than take the same number of troops which wont be for another 3 years anyway at the same cost of billions.

Send them to Afghanistan seems to be contrary to his original plan of cutting military operations cost as far as occupying foreign soil.

Now it seems no change just more words. I did vote for him but I see no plan now for troop removal just words.

I think it is important to remember that we have a President-elect, he has not yet been sworn in...we have a current president who, by virtue of time-constraints is really not doing too much and certainly is not going to do too much given the short period of time before he leaves the Oval Office; I think our President-elect is putting together a strategic plan, he is putting together an interesting a bi-partisan team, and that is what I also strongly believe, it will be a team....and when he hits the ground on inaguration day, he will hit the ground running...I do not think he is going to be soft; I do not think he is going to be gingerly careful...I think he is going to be fair, prudent, sensible, have his ducks in a row and has an enormous task ahead of him and I think he is planning carefully; I think he is asking the right questions, I think he is looking at the 'whole' picture not simply what is specifically in front of him (which, in itself has got to be overwhelming) and I think he is really going to use some of the words of Kennedy...'ask what you can do for your country' because we are all going to have to be a team to move forward, get out of the horrible mess we got placed in and rather than finger pointing, which sure does not help or work and at this point is absolutely irrelevant, but rather figure out how we all pitch in, and I mean all...and that goes for the big companies, the Fortune 500 companies....the 3 major automobile companies as well...they have all lived well, their executives have all lived well without a care in the world for those in our country who have had to struggle and now, have to do more than struggle...if these companies want financial help, they have to make commitments not only to Congress, but to us...

And, we have an obligation to support our President-elect as well; and more significantly, we need to stop saying what he has not done yet in regard to his campain 'platform'..how can he...he has not yet been sworn in...
