8 More today. 14 yesterday. 51 total for October and we have 4 more days to go. That is more than one Patriot, one Brave Hero lost every day since the Report from the General commanding troops in Afghanistan was placed in the hands of the PresBO. That is at least 8 rounds of golf for PresBO, that is 7 weekly parties at the Whitehouse (they took one Wednesday off because they were on vacation on Martha's Vineyard), that is one trip to lose the Olympics, and I can't even count the number of Campaign Stops the man has made. Drumming up money for Democrats is more important than actually using that supposed large brain of his to make a decision on troop strength in Afghanistan.
Now I understand that Bush took 3-months to actually issue the order but he allowed the congress to debate the issue first, and it was the congress that took so long and eventually they gave their tacit approval. Some bitterly denounced the Surge including both the knuckleheads occupying the white house right now. This was done for political purposes, they needed the time so that if successful the results would not show so close to the elections that they could not use it as a political wedge. Which they did, all throughout the election last year. Iraq was the "bad" war and Afghanistan was the "good" war. Well, as the parent of a Marine living on borrowed time over there right now, NO war is "good". But it is the war that PresBO signed up for and he should be fighting it right now, before his next round of golf.
His priorities right now is to continue his Campaign to "transform" the country, today it is Green Jobs, solar energy and tomorrow it is for a corrupt Democrat in New Jersey. When will it end and the PresBO actually borrow a spine and make the hard decision. I guess when the poltical calculus tells him its safe.
Shameful, absolutely shameful.
