I’m trying to promote healthcare here!
After campaigning on the premise that our war was in Afghanistan, not Iraq, it seems that now when it comes down to it, Obama doesn’t want to have to make the decision to double up on troop strength in Afghanistan, even though General McChrystal says we have about 12 months to make or break the effort to defeat the Taliban insurgency.
Obama’s resonse? “Hey, don’t distract me bro!” The white house has asked the General not to make a formal request for troops. I guess that would distract folks from the importance of the healthcare plan(s).
