President Obama has said he is close to a decision on Afghanistan and that he is not rushing into anything until he has all his options spelled out so he can take the correct actions. OK, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt because he's new and doesn't really have any experience and sending young men and women into harms way would weigh heavily on anyone's conscience.
But if the President deems it necessary to "go slow" on this decision (which actually started 6 mos. ago when he changed commanders) why is he so "headstrong" on pushing through "Health Care Reform" before the end of the year? Health Care may be the biggest issue Congress and this President will ever face, and the bills are so large and convulted that people are finding "surprises" tucked away in corners of the pages daily.
I think its time for ObamaLogic to be applied equally. Mr. Obama its time to come and govern "from the center".

I agree that President Obama is a good leader! Making health care available for Americans is important and I congratulate for his efforts to keep American healthy.

Next major issue on the agenda is Amnesty for "Illegals". I totally support President Obama on this timely issue.

Hopefully, young Americans serving in Iraq and Afghanistan will be home by the summer of 2010. Keep them alive and let them thrive. VIVA AMERICA!
