I can imagine this will be the slogan de jour that will dominate the news in 2012. Much like this past election when we heard ad nauseum “the surged worked in Iraq“. I wonder which party will be tossing this slogan around during the next Dictator President election?
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen said on a visit to Kabul that between 20,000 and 30,000 additional U.S. troops could be sent to Afghanistan by summer.
Hypothetically, let’s say the “Surge” in Afghanistan does work. Afghanistan becomes a stable (U.S. Tax Payer Funded) country, and Dictator President Obama has high poll numbers. What does the Republican nominee for Dictator President run on? It’s something to seriously think about.
Are the Republicans who so strongly believed in the “Surge in Iraq” and sacrificed there Limited Constitutional Government principles, just so they could have the White House, going to support Dictator President Obama, for the same reason? “But he supports the troops!!”. “This isn’t the time to question Dear Leader, and we must support him“. Are my arm-chair quarterback friends going to be pushing these sayings down my throat, like they did in this past election?
It’s a discussion I know a lot of folks don’t want to have. But, I believe it needs to be talked about. Is the Republican Party going to go back to it’s “America First” roots and stop this World Police crap?
This America Firster can only hope…..
