Obama: "If McChrystal Was a Gay, Tax-Evading Liberal, He Could Have All the Troops He Wanted."

Obama has refused to quickly approve a request from his commanders for a major troop build-up in Afghanistan, insisting first on a full vetting of the current strategy.

Democrats vetting military strategy? That’s tantamount to Courtney Love vetting your baby sitter. Frightening doesn’t even begin to cover it.

I’m not real impressed with the Democrats and their vetting skills. Call me picky, but didn’t they vet Rahm Emanuel, tax fraud aficionado? And didn’t Timothy Guietner come away from his vetting with two enthusiastic thumbs up even though he, like Emanuel, blew off paying his taxes?

Of course, sometimes the vetting does get a bit sloppy, as in the case of Van Jones, who, according to the White House:

“…was not as thoroughly vetted as other administration officials,” the official said. “It’s fair to say there were unknowns.”

Actually, it’s fair to say they forgot to tell him to keep his raving communist tendencies under wraps.

And let’s not forget Kevin Jennings, Assistant Deputy Secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools. This guy was obviously vetted by Barney Frank. Jennings’ claim to fame is being the founder of GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network) and the brain child behind teaching school kids the fine art of “fisting“. Did I mention that he is in charge of ‘safe’ schools?

Needless to say, if I were McChrystal and I was told by a gaggle of Democrats that they wanted to vet my military strategy, I’d give them the driving finger as I walked away, locked and loaded, to stand with the very men Obama is hanging out to dry.
