    You mean I can stop holding my breathe or we will actually have more soldiers to help the one's who have been there the last 3 months without a clear mission from their Commander-in-Chief?

    Can't Obama do ANYTHING without making it a national TV event??!! It is painfully obvious at this point this idiot likes to hear himself talk and is obsessed with the spotlight. Please stop torturing us with this endless stream of Obama celebrity coverage. Can't he just do the job he was elected to do without all the fanfare? Is that too much to ask for?

    What's your plan? Apologize for how horrible of a country you are? I wish we actually had a president with some backbone.

    Obama...just go away. While you were drumming up enough courage to make a decision, our soldiers were being ambushed. You need to be tried for treason and murder.

    Is Obama calling to say he is a War President?
    I never voted for Obama but I didn't think he would show is true colors so soon. Martin Luther King, he definitely is not. He is another phony baloney politician.
