U.S in Afghanistan for the long haul???

Thats what Bill Clinton’s wifey and Robert Gates are saying.

So does that mean Gates got his extra 40,000 troops he asked for? Not exactly, it seems the amount of troops is still under discussion

The Taliban insurgency currently has the momentum in Afghanistan, Gates said, adding that a Taliban takeover of the country would empower the al Qaeda terrorist network.

“Because of our inability and the inability, frankly, of our allies to put enough troops in Afghanistan, the Taliban do have the momentum right now, he said.

Ummm, okay so what is happening?

“We’re not leaving Afghanistan,” he declared, adding: “There should be no uncertainty in terms of our determination to remain in Afghanistan and to continue to build a relationship of partnership and trust with the Pakistanis. That’s long term. That’s a strategic objective of the United States.”

Okay, so I get the point of the meeting where the US will stay in Afghanistan, yet every though there are not enough troops in Afghanistan to stop the Talibana momentum the next step is not decided….way to take your time kids.

Obama silent on Chicago crime, too busy hanging with Oprah in Copenhagen

So, here he is off to get the olympics and bid for the city of Chicago with the wife and the bff Oprah why a child has been beaten to death and another seriously injured just in the last couple of days in the streets of Chicago.

So what does Obama say about the crime in Chicago?

…I can’t hear you???

….Sorry, speak up. Is that nothing you say?

You off selling a city that seems to have crime issues, education issues let alone a country that is in a serious Health care debate, Financial problems and have serious questions about what is going on in Afghanistan and you are off jerking selling Chicago to the IOC.

That is showing some great leadership. But nice to see you give a shit care about something else other then yourself. I guess you only care about what your wife and Oprah care about. Maybe they should run the country and we can plant trees and eat organic food and ride our bikes to work.

Especially when you couldn’t shut your pot hole about Gates, but I guess a boy that comes from a lower middle class family in Chicago is worthless to you now that you have there vote.
