    But a right wingnut said he would sign an agreement that we would be there until 2024. If you can't beleive a lying right wingnut, who can you believe?

    Karzai trying to save his life but I doubt Obama will ever send troops back in to save Afghanistan from the Taliban.

    I have to wonder how many Teatrolls read the headline to this article and then think to themselves "see, I told you he was a muslim." Seriously. I bet it's a lot more than zero.

  4. SUBS 4 VOTES/Dutch Bad Newz, VA/GROVER NORQUIST IS A ENEMY OF THE STATE

    Now let's begin the drawdown. If Karzai wants to run the raids, more power to them.

    Today Mittens will condemn the agreement, but tomorrow he will take credit for advising Obama to sign it. Just another day in the life of the idiot personhood candidate who is severely conservative while being moderately liberal and still attacks women, seniors, veterans, college students, workers, the middle class, the poor, Hispanics and other minorities while claiming he is not divisive.

    What is not fair is that right wingnuts are so hateful, they have stupid.

    I missed the report, how did the GOP personhood candidate and the 9-11 cross dresser's celebration of the death of OBL go?

  12. The Greedy Old Pigs declared class war on US!

    It's guaranteed that by this evening Fakes News and the rightwing noise machine will be cranking up all kinds of phony stories to make this look bad. Expect nonsense like "Is Obama fleeing the USA over bad job numbers?" And the mental defective that follow the GOBP cult will eat it up that manure like its filet mignon.

  14. The REAL Truth.. (not the imposter)

    @latina – "Demo's are running scared."
    -------------------
    Perhaps you should have said GOP is running scared?? After all Obama IS in Afghanistan and Mittens and his entourage and wandering around NYC w/ Bloomberg. Last I heard the war was NOT in NYC.
    The Grand Obstructionist Party has no platform (except go back to the Bush era, look where that got us), no candidate (not even the GOP likes Mittens) and no chance in Nov.

  15. Wake up people

    @latina. Running scared for what? Mittens can't hold a candle to President Obama. What is his platform? Nothing or everything? No offense but I hope you don't think Robmey is going to help you out. He wants your votes nothing else. Don't believe the hype.

    OBAMA 2012!

    But I bet he didn't visit Harlem – Nor the Bronx, Brooklyn or Queens, for that matter!! And don't anyone say neither did President Obama – Yes he did when he was running!!

    As far as Afghanistan, we will hear @ 7:30 PM eastern time...
