the future is ours
Why is it wrong for the president to speak about military matters? He's the Commander in Chief.
Absurd point PHX.
I don't see how Bush trying to gain support for his actions in Iraq is a "blowhard move" or "chest beating" or anything like that.
About grandstanding on an issue....isn't that what Obama just did to get the stimulus passed? Hasn't he been pretty focused on that one issue?
I have no clue what you're talking about Soxfan. If you could point out to me how the link you posted about GW was an example of "grandstanding and chest thumping" and Obama's speech on the economy wasn't....I'm all ears. Because both examples look like the same exact thing. A president trying to gain public approval for a plan he supports. I fail to see anything wrong with it on either side.
And, on the subject of the Afghanistan surge. By not mentioning it, it seems to me that Obama kind of wants to sweep it under the rug. Like I said, he's the Commander in Chief...this is one of the main aspects of his job.

"Compromise, hell! That's what has happened to us all down the line -- and that's the very cause of our woes. If freedom is right and tyranny is wrong, why should those who believe in freedom treat it as if it were a roll of bologna to be bartered a slice at a time?"
