So when General Petraeus was under Bush, those on the left were foaming at the mouth calling him Betray Us. Well now that Obama has chosen him, will the mouth foamers have a change of heart and call him General Petraeus the Great?

How will they be able to justify hating the man with a passion under Bush, but then loving the same exact man under Obama?

Sounds like a pickle for the left. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Where is that planet you come from where this thing you call "the left" hangs out?

I also find it strange that a president and secretary of state who said when senators that the Iraq argued would not work then that it was not wroking would turn to the very person who developed it to lkead them thru their afgansiatn problems. With two generals down Obama maybe getting short of choices really.He even looks to Gates to advise him.Makes you want who advised him before as it seems mostly to have been rethoric.

Chill out and relax. Tomorrow when you sober up, re-read what you posted and try to put it into a form that is comprehensible.

I like how Obama picking Petraeus is being described as decisive and brilliant when it was clearly the only choice possible.
