Busy Day Today

Wow. What a day Friday is going to be. There will be light posting because I'm gonna be pretty busy.

Big Guy and I have a major speech in which he is going to announce that America is going to deploy about 4200 more troops to Afghanistan, as well a few hundred more civilians. This is a good thing, because our brave men and women who have been putting their lives on the line for our freedom have been doing a kick-ass job, and they deserve the opportunity to win this war the way they are winning it in Iraq.

I wish, though, that our press people wouldn't use gambling metaphors when they are talking about the war effort. Even I, a common computer, understand the gravity of it all. So when Gibbsy or Burton or one of the National Security staff tells reporters on background, "[The President's] all in. This is Obama's war. He's pushed all the chips to the center of the table, " we as an Administration minimize our military's effort, and maximize the political calculation of it all. As the guy who helps the Big Guy lay down that message, I'm telling them there is a better way to say it, but we'll see.

This isn't Big O's war. It's America's war. And it's also Gen. David Petraeus's war. He clearly knows what the hell he is doing. As the Big O has said several times in the past few days, "That man is going to save my heiney." And boy do we all know it and appreciate it.

  1. I like you so much when you don’t talk about this Government part, which the Army represents. Everybody remembers your words about the war in Iraq and our military success. One can be very puzzled how you are against the war that we can win (Iraq) and now you are for a war that is more difficult to win (Afghanistan). Also how do you plan to attract allies, when we are becoming a laughing stock? Keep in my mind that before the joke was on the president (W.) but now the joke it is on us.

  2. TOTUS, I hope you won't take any offense when GEN Petraeus stops by and talks to folks....without any, er...electronic assistance. I have seen him refer, occassionally, to notes - but he pretty much has it all together upstairs.

  5. Hey TOTUS, Big-O was uplate last night watching round ball. He couldn't help himself...just had to send Coach K a little text message after the game. Only 5 letters...Wanna guess what he said...FOCUS. In your face K-Man. Have a nice "quiet" weekend...the only screen the Big Guy will be watching will be 50+ inches of Hi-Def hoops.

  7. Hey Kid.... adjust the color controls on your monitor and look at the picture of TOTUS at the top of the page.

    He's not black, he's RED and a muddy shade of BLUE.

  9. Kid, man what's up with all that anger? Maybe you should see a therapist. I'm just saying, your head may just pop off your body if you don't get that under control. VN8

  10. kid update:

    "I'm just a poor black brother,and I'm doing this.Trying to raise the race up."

    That explains a little bit of your anger. Man if I had that type of burden resting on my shoulders my head my pop off with anger as well. VN8

  11. Hey kid,
    what's that matter? No daddy growing up? Mommy blame you? It's ok though. God loves you. Tell you what. I'm go to give you a bail out. How's that sound? hope it helps with anger issues.

  12. Brace yourself TOTUS.

    Afghanistan is not Iraq.

    Nobody in the end wins in Afghanistan, and Big Boy will once again figure that out by reinventing the wheel when he throws another 10,000 of our soldiers under the bus.

    In that terrain, I could hold off a battalion with a squad if I had that terrain on my side.

  13. Mr Teleprompter,
    When the Big Guy talks about "personal responsibility" is that from the text you are presenting or does he slip that in? Are you able to modify his text...to enhance it?

  14. TOTUS,

    You are not gonna believe this. Last night my Palm Pilot IIIxe finally passed away in the night. You may remember her. Her name is Sarah and I have no idea if it was because you broke her heart or not. Not trying to put you on the spot, but...

    Can you lend me some advice on what brand/model of PDA would be best? I already have a Blackberry phone through work, so I don't need the phone. Any slick websites out there I can comparison shop?

    Sarah's funeral is this Saturday and it is all set.

    Sorry about Afghanistan. Big Boy will be a one-termer now for sure. Keep your options open so you can jump ship at the right point.

  15. I am partial to the new Blackberry coming out from Verizon in May, codenamed Niagara. Boy Genius Blog has the review. Can hardly wait. And the best part: Big Boy can't get one. He's stuck with the bulky model that he won't carry with him because it makes him look fat.

  18. Good point about Ahfgahneestahn, Sapwolf. Looks like D'oh!'s plan to gut the U.S. Armed Forces was more ominous than we thought. He's just going to keep on sending our troops into those mountains until -- there aren't any more to send.

    And at that point, what will B. Hussein say in the 10 seconds during which the United States continues to exist before it's being taken over by Islamofascists? "I won."

  19. Point of Clarification: The Afghanistan front IS one in which we need to be militarily active. The above was how B.O. will follow his creepy pal, Rahm's, advice to exploit a "crisis" to accomplish what you otherwise could not.

  21. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
