Cheerleader, Not a Real Leader

Great post from Wayne Simmons at Human Events.

At no time in recent American military history has a speech delivered by a President of the United States done so much to distance our nation from victory and put the men and woman of the military and intelligence agencies in harm’s way. President Obama’s big Afghanistan speech caused nary a tremble in the polls.  Before he spoke, most Americans didn’t support him.  And after?  His popularity continues to sink.It was positively painful to watch Gen. Stanley McChrystal try to explain how you can win by not losing in his Tuesday congressional testimony.  He’s doing the president’s bidding, not following a leader who has a clear idea of how to win a war.
