Even though I still think that he should have kept his face ( and ears ) out of Denmark, there they are!
While I disagree with the way Joe Wilson handled himself the other week when he shouted "YOU LYE" , I adamantly agree with his sentiment. I have to give him some kudos for actually feeling so strongly about the healthcare issue. He was certainly more passionate about his ideas on the issue than our dear President is. But, regardless of who that President is -- is not acceptable.
As for the speech, I did not watch it, because I knew in advance that I wouldn't believe anything that Obama would say. . I bet millions of Americans shouted "LIAR" from their living rooms more than once. And where is he now? In Denmark pitching for the Olympics with his wifey and Oprah? Why isn’t he in Washington instead doing his job and telling General McChrystal that he will send the troops he asked for to help the troops that are already there. please at least acknowledge the commander on the ground, if no more than to tell him you're still trying to decide!! A little communication will be respected by all. But no, As expected, Hussein retreats to attend something far more important than deal with the field General's plea who is presently fighting a war like going to Denmark with 2 airplanes full of his friends.
As the nation continues in economic crisis and Iran flips the finger at us, of course the POTUS should join the wifey in Denmark to pitch the Olympics./s Guess he either doesn't trust that Michelle can bring home the bacon on this one or he just enjoys spending tax-payer money to fly out of the country and let his Vice Clown, Biden handle the economy, healthcare reform and Iran. More poor judgment on the Prez' part. Hopefully, Denmark and friends haven't seen the video of the kid beaten to death in Chicago.
I guess there must be a sale on shoes in Denmark and first lady Michelle and Oprah want to support the sale and add a few million dollars to Denmark’s economy. .
Obama will just ignore the military request and say I didn't know anything about it. Like he said about not knowing the amount of money that was given to ACORN. And how about dealing with the Iran problem? Is Denmark also more important than that? As the Commander in Chief, Obama will make his decision and the General will say "Yes Sir". That's our Constitution, and that's the way it is.. Like it or not, it don’t make any difference how our troops are getting slaughter out there in Afghanistan. If President Obama chooses not to listen to his generals, then he needs to go all the way and completely pull out of Afghanistan. And not let the troops already there get slaughtered.
One has to wonder if Obama wants us to win or lose this war.
