Obama Inserts Foot Again

Once again Barack Obama is showing why he would not be a good President, evidenced by his uncanny ability to not know what the hell he is talking about (and yet speak about it, anyway).

From the Indianapolis Examiner (an African-American centered newspaper) comes this story:

"We've got to get the job done there," he said of Afghanistan. "And that requires us to have enough troops so that we're not just air-raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous problems there."


As one who personally knows a battalion commander currently stationed in Afghanistan, I feel totally comfortable saying: The Illinois senator's statement is not true. We are not indiscriminately air-raiding villages. Period.

The senator seriously needs to stop talking about things that he knows nothing about. My suggestion to Mr. Obama is for him to get on a plane, go there, and see first hand what is going on there, before he makes any more reckless comments. I would think that his slide in the polls would tell him that his mouth is hurting him, as it did John Kerry in 2004. It's what he gets for playing to the hard left base that is against anything military.

Why ruin it with reality?

It's clear Obama's is trying to respond to Hillary's accusations by using Afghan as a prop to show he didn't support the fake war in Iraq as opposed to "the real war" in Afghan.

And it now seems clear that war is merely a political prop for him.

And furthermore, the war is nothing but a prop for Obama!

I don't know. let me check with my bookie in Vegas. Maybe someone got to him and paid him to throw the election. ;)
