Obama Linguistically Morphing Into Bush 'War is tough!' It's tough, I tell you! By Lori Price 13 May 2010 On Wednesday, President Barack Obama gave his 'war is tough' speech to Hamid Karzai and a group of obsequious media trolls at a White House news conference. Obama said that there would be some 'hard fighting' ahead in Afghanistan. Apparently, Obusha is abandoning the soaring rhetoric which has served him well as a cover for policies that benefit his corporaterrorist paymasters.
President Obama also informed us that the US commitment to Afghanistan [aka US contractors and mercenary firms] will go *well* beyond 2011.
'The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.'
Hopefully, the alleged 'left' will wake up long before that, and find a decent candidate to run for president in 2012.

He spoke as the U.S.-led forces in Afghanistan prepared for a push into the Taliban's birthplace in Kandahar Province.
