Barack Hussein Obama has been thinking about making a decision on General McChrystal's additional troop request to bolster troops already in the field (i.e. Afghanistan War) since August. 3 months.
During these three months Barack Hussein Obama has: flown to NYC to offer a tribute to Walter Cronkite (but not to NYC on 9-11), flown to Copenhagen to lobby the IOC for the 2016 Olympics (even though Oprah and Michelle were already there).
Then he revved up AF One to attend the memorial service at Fort Hood. (Can we say major photo ops?) Wouldn't that have been an absolutely appropriate time and place to announce his re-re-thought Afghan War strategy? But no. He doesn't like any of his options and wants more.
Is Barack Hussein Obama reluctant to send more American troops to war because he's concerned for them? I doubt that's the reason.
Or is it because he just does not want to spend the money on the war?
This guy has NO problem spending money.
During the first 100 days as POTUS, Obama signed a $787 billion stimulus bill into law, proposed a $3.6 trillion budget for the next fiscal year, took over a massive $700 billion Wall Street bailout program and created other billion-dollar programs.
It did not take 3 months for him to make those decisions.
