We were on a break! Wink (Friends reference)

Yeah, sorry that I haven't been doing my part. I've just been super crazy busy that I haven't had as much time to devote to the Board. I still really enjoy a good conversation though on here, even if we agree to disagree.

So, what do you think of today's developments with Petraus taking over for McCrystal? I'm fine with it. Obama had no choice but to fire McCrystal for basically insubordination.

He didn't get fired. He resigned. Wink

Anyway, I didn't have a problem with it either. The Petreus choice just seems a little odd though, given the dislike the Dems have had with him in the past.

i know well how it is to find oneself rather busy with other stuff..been there! drunken
it has seemed to me for a while that few things here are uhh talked about. there may be one line of a response posted with an opinion, the rest of it slams at another poster or basic political hatred. seems we used to be able to talk about stuff with less hatred for hatreds sake and spoke what we felt instead of standard issued talking points. i suppose the fewer of us that come here, the less variety in thought and expression is just more apparent? oh well... Basketball

i felt the mcchrystal issue was well handled. i agree there was no choice. no matter who the prez would have been..three strikes should definately mean youre out. i had dislike in general for him because of his part in the coverup in tillmans death..but also felt there was no way to know if it really stemmed from him or if he was following orders. i did think he would do well in afghanistan when he was appointed to it. i was really surprised he and his bff team talked the way they did to a reporter --any reporter --while they were still in the role they were assigned. maybe could have understood a little better if it were a tell-all thing after he retired or something but imho they were plum dumb.

Hmmm I wonder who the one here keeps mentioning "birthers" "teabaggers" "bush's fault" etc. etc. at every opposing political view.

McCrystal opened the can of worms. Probably was better for him to resign (although that doesn't mean he was wrong). A lot of the comments in the article were from his aides though instead of the general. General Petraeus will do a good job in Afghanistan. I am surprise that Obama selected him though. After all it wasn't to long ago when moveon.org had the famous Betrayus ads. Obama and Biden both treated him like crap in the Senate on his reports to congress on the Iraqi war.
