A Tale of Two Obamas

First Candidate Obama rips the Bush administration for not prosecuting the Afghan “war of necessity” with enough vigor, and for not capturing Bin Laden. Then President Obama sends in more troops. Then he hand-picks a new general to run the war effort. Then he ignores the general. Then the general says he needs 40,000 more troops to avoid defeat. Then President Obama, in the midst of his Olympic junket, meets with his general for all of 25 minutes. Then, as the body bags start to mount, President Obama dithers … for weeks, saying he needs more time to decide what to do.

Mr. Obama, you don’t have any more time. The troops are waiting.
