  •  We're NOT in the same shape (0+ / 0-)

    Obama has pushed for and gotten an exit plan for our involvement in Iraq.  Obama is pushing for and asking his generals and Joint Chiefs to accelerate the withdrawal plan in Afghanistan.  We've gotten Osama bin Laden, we're after the next one and the next one so as to cripple this radical Islamic menace.

    Nope...we're not there yet and yep, Obama was left with a couple of wars to fight...but, we're in NO WAY in the same shape now we were in during dubya's reign.

      There will be always be someone who hates us and wants to do us harm. Are we going to be there forever since there will always be a "next one and a next one".

      •  It's a good point (0+ / 0-)

        Don't get me wrong...I want all of this madness to end as much as the next guy.  I was just responding to the statement to us being in the same shape in these freakin' ridiculous wars that we were in during Dubya.  

        Your point is well taken.

        •  It was more of a rhetorical question then (0+ / 0-)

          a slight against you. I probably should have made that clear. Thanks for the reply.
