I understand that Barack Obama campaigned on fighting the real fight, Afghanistan, but has he looked at these unemployment numbers lately?  Currently, 10.2% unemployed but if you enter underemployed it is close to 18%.

Olbemann is right, we can not afford this war.  In fact, it was the use of the U.S. credit card, borrowing from China that has sustained these wars, which we are knocking on the 9th year door SOON.

Now we are battling for a weak health care bill, that will not challenge much change towards the health insurance companies, but it is the D.C. congress that are nickle and diming the American public on the premise that, "We can not afford it".  But we can afford to continue paying for two bullshit wars?  Yes, at this point, bullshit wars.  And at 10B+ a pop, monthly?

Finally, Keith Olbermann is CORRECT in calling out General McChrystal and why President Barack Obama is listening to this dude?  Remember, he was the mastermind of the Pat Tillman coverup, but we are suppose to believe him?  Oh, let's not talk about the corrupt President Karzai and his drug pushing brother's drug machine coming out of Afghanistan.  And these are the people we are in bed with in Afghanistan?

Lastly, the opinion polls have turned on Afghanistan and it reads get the hell OUT.

Obama White House, when are you going to wake the hell up?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
