    I'm just amazed at how professional and courteous our troops are, you see that first hand when they have to be friendly and bite their lip around a Democrat. During Bush's presidency people like Joe Biden actually were wishing harm on our troops to score political points. A majority of Democrats in America were waking up in the morning, grabing the paper or turning on the tv, and actually hoping to hear about casualties in Iraq. The one good thing about having a Democrat president is that now all Americans are wishing success for our troops and not wanting them to be killed.

    Well where else can they send Joe? They gotta let him out sometime, Iraq is so far away he shouldn't be able to get into too much trouble. Joe Biden is the first example of bad judgement by Obama. Too bad people didn't clue in to that mistake, before they elected him to continue on his path of making bad choices for his cabinet and our country.

    Well this proves nothing except he is reading the polls and diverted the plane from landing in Afghanistan, the next story. As someone who supported the ticket, we need more attention on jobs and end the wars.

    Hey Joe, they finally let you out of the house, it's great to see you have something to do since they let you go to the little league world series, some more impotent duties.
