    ...who said, when the SECOND Obama surge in Afghanistan was authorized in December 2009 (first was in March 2009), I wouldn't now have to say, quite regretfully, we were right. Regretfully, because cost in lives and money have not improved matters there. We could have nailed Osama bin Laden without sending a single one of those additional troops. And, for those who support the drone policy, that would have covered other eventualities. If I were Hamid Karzai, I would be padding my family's foreign bank accounts even more than he is already doing, assuming he doesn't want, after the foreign troops leave, to end up sin huevos like one of his predecessors by the name of Najibullah.

    As for the president's campaign persona since August 2011, I hope he merges it with his governing persona for the next four years. That would give those of us who definitely are not centrists reason to be a lot happier than we have been for the past four.

    Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.
