Barack Obama Owes Our Troops An Apology

Obama's Comments On Afghanistan Draw Sharp Rebuke From Romney Campaign

Democratic presidential hopeful, U.S. Sen Barack Obama, D-Il., listens to citizens' concerns during a campaign stop in Hanover, N.H., Monday, Aug. 13. His comments on the U.S. role in Afghanistan drew a sharp rebuke from Mitt Romney's campaign.

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama came under fire Tuesday for saying that U.S. troops in Afghanistan are "just air-raiding villages and killing civilians." The junior senator from Illinois made the comment Monday at a campaign stop in Nashua, New Hampshire.

"We've got to get the job done there," he said of Afghanistan. "And that requires us to have enough troops so that we're not just air-raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous problems there."

The comment drew a rebuke Tuesday from the campaign of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

"That is a very troubling remark on so many levels," said Romney spokesman Kevin Madden. "Most importantly, it's emblematic of Senator Obama's lack of experience for the job of commander-in-chief. But it's also an entirely inaccurate condemnation of the efforts of the men and women of the United States military who are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan."

A spokesman for Obama, who will speak at the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention in Missouri next week, did not immediately respond to Madden's criticism.

The flap comes three weeks after Obama promised that if elected president, he would meet without pre-conditions with the leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea. That pledge was called "irresponsible and frankly naive" by rival Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Eight days later, eager to rebut Clinton's charge, Obama said that as president, he might send U.S. troops into Pakistan to fight terrorists not targeted by Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf.

"If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will," he vowed.

Critics called this overly hawkish, prompting Obama to modulate again the next day by ruling out the use of nuclear weapons to fight terrorism in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

"I think it would be a profound mistake for us to use nuclear weapons in any circumstance," he told the AP before pausing.

"Involving civilians," he added. "Let me scratch that. There's been no discussion of nuclear weapons. That's not on the table."

The gaffe was criticized by Clinton, who said: "I don't believe that any president should make any blanket statements with respect to the use or non-use of nuclear weapons."

Clinton has been criticized for a statement about Iran last year in which she said "I would certainly take nuclear weapons off the table."

On Tuesday, Clinton's campaign declined to comment on Obama's remark about U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

Here, Here Marie. The guy is a loser who not only owes the troops and apology, but the country as well.

Glad to see you back! Hope you are feeling better and everything is well. You have been missed.

Hi, Marie.

I think we should just let him babble on. He's sinking himself faster than the Titanic! Heh! The more he talks the worse he looks. He probably will apologize, but if he does it won't mean anything, because he'll only do it for political reasons. I'd rather he kept on saying the things he really means and showing everyone what a stupid fool he is than having him try to cover up the truth. I'm so tired of phony apologies that don't mean anything and I'm sure our troops are too.

I mean, geez, the guy isn't through his first term in the Sinnit, and he already thinks he can run the country. And with a middle name like "Hussein". He'll get over it.

Hey girl, Gayle is right about Obama. He should just keep running his mouth, he's already out of it but he does owe the troops an apology.

All of the things that we are hearing about George Bush and our troops was a strategy dreamed up and deployed by he KGB during the cold war. They know what dupes the leftists are and used the strategy we are now seeing the left using to demean and demoralize. That's all I'm saying. My weekend post will be a complete explanation

Thank's Guys and Gals :-)

I think you are right, leave Obama right where he is at. He's sinking his own ship.

An Apology is still owed to our Troops and Country however.

Notice how the media didnt pick up much on this? Had it been a Republican the MSM would have been screaming bloddy murder!


It sounds like you must have some interesting conversations at Thanksgiving and Christmas lol

Maybe next time your sister-in-laws come over you should turn on Rush Limbaugh and drive them nuts! :-)
