Juan Williams is being proclaimed a milquetoast for saying that Obama is making a lot of progress in Afghanistan. I can hardly believe this one.
Bill Kristol and Liz Cheney absolutely make Juan Williams look like an Obamageek.
[...] President Peacemaker is stalling just like he does with every major decision. [...]
In other news Feinstein blasts Obama for Afghanistan actions. Naturally she is in campaign mode but Obama is still being held accountable...sort of. Go here to ABC for the video feed and here is the transcript feed.
[...] STEPHANOPOULOS: Senator Feinstein, let me begin with you. You met with the president this week. He had a group of members of Congress and senators down to meet with him. And I -- we -- we know -- and you saw Secretary Clinton say that, as well -- the president seems to have ruled out immediate withdrawal... from Afghanistan or a major increase of troops, in the hundreds of thousands. But did he reveal anything else about his thinking? And what did you recommend to him?
FEINSTEIN: Well, what he revealed was his thinking up to this point, and that the fact that he wanted to hear from various members, and some of us spoke up. And I'll tell you what I said. I reviewed all of the intelligence and looked at the situation, and it was pretty clear to me that violence was up 100 percent, 950 attacks in August. The Taliban now controls 37 percent of the people in the areas where these people are. Attrition in police is running 67 percent, either killed or leaving the service...
Now, if you're going to stay, you have to have a way of winning. The question is, what is that way? And I think the counterinsurgency strategy, which means protecting the people, not shooting from afar, but securing, taking, holding, and providing security for a period of time is really critical...
FEINSTEIN: Now, should we stay there for 10, 12 years? General, I don't think so. I don't think the American people are up for that or want that. But I think -- I don't know how you put somebody in who was as crackerjack as General McChrystal, who gives the president very solid recommendations, and not take those recommendations if you're not going to pull out.
If you don't want to take the recommendations, then you -- you -- you put your people in such jeopardy, just like the base in Nuristan. We lost eight of our men. We didn't have the ability to defend them, and now the base is closing, and effectively we're -- we're retreating away from it. And so I think the decision has to be made sooner, rather than later.

Feinstein sort of gets it and Obama doesn't. That much is clear. I wonder if ABC will be proclaimed as the latest Fox News leglings of the GOP. It seems as though they have been the leglings of the Marxist-ish of the DNC...
[...] "Fox News is simply "a wing of the Republican Party," a top White House aide said today.Appearing on CNN this morning, White House Communications Director Anita Dunn said Fox News exists simply to further the agenda of the GOP."
Fox News often operates almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party," Dunn said.This is the second time in a week that Dunn has blasted Fox. She was quoted in Time Magazine on Thursday blasting the cable network as "opinion journalism masquerading as news."
Fox News Senior Vice President of News Michael Clemente said Fox News' growing viewership speaks for itself. "An increasing number of viewers are relying on FOX News for both news and opinion," said Clemente. He added that Fox has a clear barrier between hard news programming and opinion shows.
"The average news consumer can certainly distinguish between the A section of the newspaper and the editorial page, which is what our programming represents," he said. "So, with all due respect to anyone who still might be confused about the difference between news reporting and vibrant opinion, my suggestion would be to talk about the stories and the facts rather than attack the messenger…which over time, has never worked."

Idiots. For YEARS the alleged MSM has been the sycophants of the Leftinistra so why is it not OK for someone to represent the other side? We are talking about the socialist revolution here. Screw the alleged MSM.
