I saw this story last night, and couldn't get my head around it. Obama wants to increase ground forces by 65,000 soldiers and 27,000 Marines. And he wants to pull our people out of Iraq.
Excuse me, Senator, but what the hell are you going to do with all those troops? Are you planning some invasion we don't know about?
I think this is a campaign tactic, to seize the high ground before the battle heats up, to be able to deflect attacks that he hates the military. Now he can say, look, I want to make the military bigger! I love the troops!
But it's a political game. First FISA, now this. If Obama doesn't watch out, his appeal of being the candidate of changing the way politics is played is going to fade away.
