Dishonest Chuck Toad
On his show this morning, Chuck Todd said that President Obama was looking for political cover to draw down in Afghanistan.

A lot of Democrats never wanted to be there, though some, I guess, bought the twisted logic that it was okay to bomb the Afghanis for something Osama Bin Ladin did. However, that was then. By 2013, which Democrats still think we should be occupying Afghanistan?

Joe Scarborough had been saying for almost two years that we should get out and a lot of conservatives agree with him.

The President said some time ago that we'd be substantially out in 2014, which is no longer that far away.


So, from whom does President Obama need political cover to accelerate draw down?

Todd never elaborated on that tiny point.

1. Longest war in American history.
We could have accomplished as much with drones if we had remained patient. But not with Dubya Bush at the helm. What a dip shit! "I'm a war President!" He always bobbed his head when he placed emphasis on something. And when he used a word with more than two syllables he stopped to get the audience reaction, like, "Look how smart I am."

Get out this minute!

5. Military and other government contracting is usually profitable. So is drug trafficking.

7. That is one reason we are there. Maybe the main reason.
That and other profit. Heroin has NEVER been so common on the streets of America. This is no coincidence. This is same old pappy Bush criminal bunch that did this to us in Vietnam. Those in the C.I.A., the mob or whoever is doing this shit need to lose their job. Again, they are wrecking the nation.

Apologists! Do not give us any fucking excuses. The U.S. military could wipe out the poppy fields in one day.

Thanks for setting me straight.

8. Oh, he was like a cartoon character.
And we were here to see it. Remember the 2,000 election! After 911 his approval was like over 90%. Frightening. No wonder they either did 911 or allowed it to happen, take your choice.
