During a visit to a Naval Air Station in Jacksonville on 10/26/09, regarding troops being sent to Afghanistan, President Barack Hussein Obama said, "I will never rush the solemn decision of sending you into harm's way. I won't risk your lives unless it is absolutely necessary."
President Obama this is your war. General Stan McChrystal, whom you put in charge, has requested additional troops. After McChrystal made a comment to the press you finally found the time to speak with him for about 30 minutes. I believe you were chastising him for his comments to the press. You gave more time to Obermann and Maddow than you gave to the General.
Now, you've been flying across the country doing fundraisers. I'm sure you are reimbursing the taxpayers from your campaign fund! You have delayed sending the troops because you say you won't risk the lives of the additional troops unless it is absolutely necessary. Hey, there are troops over there now and they are dying. The General needs more troops to support and defend the soldiers that are there. Excuse me, I don’t want to interrupt your partying/campaigning, but my suggestion would be to give the General what he needs, because you should assume he knows what he is doing. After all you are not only the Community Organizer in Chief, but also the Commander in Chief.
