    Texas Jack I would like to meet with you for about five minutes so I can kick your sorry republicans ass. You don't have the right to talk about the first lady in that manner, or the President , bush is the one that needed to be impeach for all the lies he told. You stupid republicans are as crooked as hell.

    Let's do this thing. Bin Laden's head on a platter and let's wrap it up. Glad to see Obama has finally got legit support from Pakistan and making much more progress than what Bush did. All Bush cared about was lies about Iraq.

    How can these intellgent generals and leaders sit with such a trainwreck of a president with a straight face. God help them deal with this neophyte awful president.

    It is interesting how the people here stating that POTUS has declared defeat and how he's retreating seem to have nothing to say about the fact that we have rounded up or killed more al qaeda and taliban leaders in the pas year than the previous 5.
    that we are finally turning the tide in Afghanistan (to which I'm about to be deployed) and are in the process of creating breathing space for peace.
    that this administration has broadened the fronts against al qaeda to countries in which it has been left unharmed until now.
    All of you armchair generals in here make me sick. Loose a fellow soldier or a single drop of blood for this great country and maybe than you will have a little more respect for POTUS. until than go back to your caves and let US defend our country

    It looks like the guy to Hillary's right is praying. Considering who is at the head of the table, who can blame him?!?

    So since you can't criticize him for CURRENT issues related to this particular blog you had to relay on a DEAD ONE like the 'birth certificate'?
    And name callings.
    And 'I can read people's minds!'
    Get a life.

    Can you dems ever get over Bush? I've never seen such a group of blamers and excuse makers. Well, I guess that's why all of us who are successful have to support you LAZY AND UNWILLING sponging off governmnent. I'm tired of supporting Brad, Lacrosse mom and all the other loafers.

    That's wondrrful, Chris. Very informative. Thank you.

    However, I'm sure he's praying (and wishing he had another boss).

    "It looks like the guy to Hillary's right is praying. Considering who is at the head of the table, who can blame him?!?"

    No, no. He's THINKING. Much more different than praying. In fact, quite the opposite.
