Well, Obama is losing his appeal day-by-day. The bloom is off the rose. I know there is this initial euphoria folks have about "savior" types, but I have always said to those that ask me that Obama is not going to change much of anything. Why he got the Nobel Peach prize is beyond my scope of intelligence.
Now, with the war continuing in the way that it has and is slated to, I get very angry. I do not want to send our sons and daughters to a front line with anything less than orders to win. Winning may not be a pretty picture. Obama says he is doing this for national security, YO DUH! Why do you think we were there in the first place? Just, if we are going to wage war, then declare it. Fight to win and do not repeat Vietnam. Otherwise, pack up and go home. No country has fought a war in Afghanistan and done very well. Do we every learn from history? When I listen to the news, which I do not do much of these days simply because it depresses me, I get upset. Seems we are more a ship of fools than a nation everyone looks up to. In my mind I hear the echos of a Dutch friend, "What happened to America?" I just shake my head.
