HowÂ DARE some stupid SenatorÂ challenge President Obama’s surge into Afghanistan!
“I am not persuaded that 20,000 additional troops is going to solve the violence there. In fact, I think it will do the reverse.”
“I think it is fair to say that the President has simply tried to gain another six months to continue on the same course that we’ve been on for several years now. It is a course that will not succeed. It is a course that is exacting an enormous toll on the American people and our troops.”
“We can send 15,000 more troops; 20,000 more troops; 30,000 more troops. I don’t know any expert on the region or any military officer that I’ve spoken to privately that believes that that is gonna make a substantial difference on the situation on the ground.”
Oh…..wait…… that was then-Senator Obama talking about the futility of the surge in Iraq.Â Gee, what great judgment the Great and Powerful O has!
I guess Obamaspeak has a whole new set of rules that I don’t understand yet.Â I went to publik skool.
