Apparently Senator Obama didn't know that Al Qaeda was in Iraq already. Or maybe he just forgot. In his last debate will Hillary, he said "And if Al Qaeda is forming a base in Iraq, then we will have to act in a way that secures the American homeland and our interests abroad.”
So, here's a scenario: Let's say Al Qaeda is already there in Iraq, threatening our interests. Let's say we've been fighting them for a few years. And, just for kicks, let's say we're kicking their butts. What's your call as President, Obama? How will you protect the homeland? By withdrawing troops! Wow, now THAT'S a winning strategy - put our heads in the sand, and "hope" (that's your campaign's call sign isn't it? Hope?) that they either don't see us, or just don't see us as a threat and walk on by. And if they do happen to attack us again, you'll just have a tea party with Osama bin Laden and Ahmedinajad and "hope" your way to peace.
Here's what I "hope": that Obamamaniacs realize they are just being duped by a still-wet-behind-the-ears senator who can give good speeches without really promising anything except "hope" and "change;"
that Americans will vote for the one candidate that will actually DO something about Al Qaeda BEFORE they attack again - John McCain;
and that Hillary realizes her "hopes" of becoming president have been dashed completely, and starts up a reality show called "Let's Change Washington" where they kick one (maybe two or three?) congressman out each week until they show they can actually get something done.
