...when he observed how the softball-lobbing, hand-picked "journalists" that Obama selected to ask him the scripted 13 questions failed to ask Obama any pointed questions about Afghanistan (yes, there was one question about Afghanistan, but not of much substance). Combs, who is one of favorite liberals, complained how no one could ask questions pressing Obama on Afghanistan, where he has adopted W!'s Neo-Con policies lock, stock and barrel, except that Obama has escalated those policies by sending 25K new troops there with no end in sight (CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN!). So much for the anti-War dude who ran for president. And Draconem, please no more links about how Obama said during the campaign that 1 or 2 more regiments might be necessary in Afghanistan -- that's like 4-8K troops, not 25K new ones w/ more to come. And back to Combs -- he complained how no journalist was pressing Obama on what's the exit strategy for Afghanistan? How much are we going to spend there? How many more new troops will we be sending there? What's the plan? Is there one? Damn right, Combs, these are the exact same questions I've been asking, but which the Obama-infatuated-far-left media refuses to ask.
