Wonder what you would find if you frisked President Obama’s speech he is scheduled to give at West Point to announce his new strategy in Afghanistan and Pakistan?

Answer: Is this another photo op?

I am not saying that it is, but it really makes you wonder…

This President is a complete joke right now. Not only was his Asia trip a complete bust, but now he FINALLY decided on a strategy plan for Afghanistan and Pakistan! General McChrystal gave his recommendations back in August and in the meantime President Obama has been dithering around playing golf and hosting parties while it takes him a semester’s time to make a decision. Oh, not to mention our troops are over there without the resources they need to win.

CBS reports:

President Obama will announce his new strategy in Afghanistan and Pakistan, as well as any troop increase in the region, in a speech next Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time at the United States Military Academy at West Point, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters this morning.

In the speech at West Point, which is located 50 miles north of New York City, the president is expected to announce he is deploying between 32,000 and 35,000 additional troops to Afghanistan. Gibbs said today that the president has not yet informed him of a final decision.

This is just completely absurd. President Obama already has the decision, but what does he need to do? He needs to notify the Secret Service to get their gear together, Air Force One to get the plane gassed up, and the press to inform them that he has made a decision and bring the cameras!

Unbelievable… He really can’t just inform the people needed to get this plan underway? After all, he has already wasted three months of the year deadline proposed by General McChystral. It’s obvious that Obama feels the need to waste another week to setup an epic speech at West Point, but don’t worry… His beloved teleprompter will surely be there.


Oh look! I’m not the only one upset about this issue:

Mr. Ainsworth took the unprecedented step of publicly criticising the US President and his delays in sending more troops to bolster the mission against the Taliban.

A “period of hiatus” in Washington – and a lack of clear direction – had made it harder for ministers to persuade the British public to go on backing the Afghan mission in the face of a rising death toll, he said.

Senior British Government sources have become increasingly frustrated with Mr Obama’s “dithering” on Afghanistan, the Daily Telegraph disclosed earlier this month, with several former British defence chiefs echoing the concerns.

But Mr. Ainsworth is the first Government minister to express in public what amounts to personal criticism of the US president’s leadership over the conflict which has so far cost 235 British lives.

Even America’s socialist friend (Britain) is giving President Obama a big slap in the face over his war delay.

Props to Mr. Ainsworth.


Do I need to say more?:

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the White House and the dozens of doctors Obama invited?

Answer: A badly botched photo op.

Hey! At least the day/event started out good:

The White House invited 150 doctors from all 50 states to the pep rally in the sunny White House Rose Garden, where Obama faced rows of smiling doctors, all wearing white lab coats.

Wait a minute! Where did all these doctors, from all around the country, get these bright white lab coats!? Haha. Of course some of them listened to directions and brought them, but others… well, they simply must of forgot. Don’t worry, the White House had extras! We wouldn’t want to miss Obama’s hard-selling health-care (takeover) message:

The physicians, all invited guests, were told to bring their white lab coats to make sure that TV cameras captured the image.

But some docs apparently forgot, failing to meet the White House dress code by showing up in business suits or dresses.

So the White House rustled up white coats for them and handed them to the suited physicians who had taken seats in the sun-splashed lawn area.

All this to provide a visual counter to complaints from other doctors that pending legislation is bad news for the medical profession.

“Nobody has more credibility with the American people on this issue than you do,” Obama told his guests.

The president was flanked by four white-coated doctors at a podium as he delivered his pep talk.

How cute. It sounded like a little costume party, HAHA. I guess it is October… But at least President Obama had doctors around him that finally believed in his idea to takeover health-care, or did he?:

Oops! I guess it’s safe to say: Not all of those doctors were in favor for Obama’s plan and showed up just for the vacation. But hey, it’s not everyday that you can meet the President and who knows? Maybe the photo op might of made an impression…
