  •  The same problem as with too many teenagers (12+ / 0-)

    They think they know everything.  And when you think you know everything, you can't learn anything.

    As time goes by I'm grateful to the Bush administration for accepting that SOFA with Iraq before they left.  Without that, I don't know if the Obama administration would have followed through with the campaign promise to end that war when it did.  

    I stand with triv33. Shame on her attackers.

      Campaign promise to bring all troops home from Afghanistan either.
      Plus they were paying the Taliban to protect our convoys that we're bring in supplies to fight the Taliban.
      Just like the banks fund both sides in a war, so dos the MIC What better way to have a forever war?

    •  You describe the anti-Obama left perfectly. (0+ / 0-)

      I've never encountered another group of people so sure of their own mastery of all issues.

      They typical member of the anti-Obama left makes absolute declarations on: energy, monetary policy, taxes, economics, science, technology, foreign policy, national security, health policy, defense, diplomacy, legislative strategy, political strategy, etc, etc, etc.

      Nobody a be an expert on everything, but the anti-Obama left certainly behave like they are such universal experts.  But if they were REALLY as expert as they posture as, including being masters of politial strategy, maybe they could get one of their own elected Presdent for once.  They they could enact their policies and try to create their utopia and then actually deal with the ramifications of their policy prescriptions.  Easy for them to spout declarative statements from the peanut gallery.
