It just doesn’t matter…

I happen to think the President has it right. Unfortunately, those on the left will say he’s not cutting enough troops and those on the right will say he’s cutting too many. He truly can not win. – wordkitty, 5:17 pm, 6/22/2011

I made that comment roughly five hours before President Obama addressed the nation. I’m not saying I’m the next Nostradamus or anything, but as soon as he announced his troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, it was on.

Obama is Hitler. Obama is a traitor. Obama is worse than Jimmy Carter. Obama is worse than Bush. Obama should listen to his military advisors and not speed up the withdrawal. Obama should listen to the American people and bring all our troops home now. While Obama focuses on domestic issues, he’s failing abroad. While Obama focuses on problems abroad, he’s failing domestically.

Nothing I can write here will change anyone’s mind. If you think he’s wrong and should withdraw faster, the fact that that would place our troops in greater harm and leave the region worse than when we started ten years ago won’t matter. If you think he’s wrong and should stay till the job’s done, the fact that we had no end-game strategy when we started ten years ago won’t matter.

Recent polls show the former Governor beating Barack Obama head-to-head. Hell, I’d even consider voting for a guy who gave universal healthcare to his state and supports women’s rights.

Romney has played it perfectly so far, by not talking very much. His strategy is brilliant: Let Gingrich implode on Meet the Press, let Pawlenty screw up a softball question about abortion, and let Sarah Palin, well, be Sarah Palin.

Of course, the election is still a long way’s off, but these numbers are significant. Just like four years ago, when Hillary Clinton held an insurmountable lead over Rudy Giuliani…
