The President is beyond stubborn, he is absolutely obstinate.

He dragged us into an utterly useless war, and now it is totally obvious to anyone who is not deaf dumb and blind that it is being pursued to no good end.

It is an unbelievable mess and a meat grinder he is throwing our troops into.

They would be better served by spending time keeping our borders safe than being in Iraq.

You too is falling for that bullshit about not in my backyard? If we leave Iraq, the iraqis will have to deal with Al Qaeda there. We need to stay focused on making Afghanistan work and destroy the Taliban for good. This bullshit ADD driven policy on how to deal with terrorism is going to fleece us

10 billions can go a long way at the border. Just do the math in terms of wages if the average yearly income for a border patrol agent is 60K (example). Go ahead and divide that 10 billion by 60,000 + benies and tell me how many agents can we get for that?
