The Republicans support an immediate pull-out from Afghanistan. Who knew?

If you're going to give a target date for withdrawal, as Obama has done, then, asks Mitt Romney, rightly, why not bring all our troops home, out of harm's way, tomorrow? Why wait another day?

Jim Rowen notes that Romney's big laugh line about Obama trying to lower ocean levels wasn't so funny in New Orleans and across the Gulf Coast.

Is that why Obama is on his way to New Orleans? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... trail.html

Nope. he is on his way there, leaving a string of empty college auditoriums in his wake, because Romney went there.

From here on in, I suspect that we are going to see a lot of Obama copying whatever Romney does.

re the link: Isn't is strange that people have so little faith in the US News media that the biggest, most read by far, online newspaper in the US is the British Daily Mail? (Or was it the telegraph?)

While everyone else is asking "WTF was that?!", The Daily Show had a pretty interesting analysis. Conservatives are angry at an invisible Obama that doesn't exist.

Local examples:. Bludgeon thinks Obama displays 'extreme grandiosity'. Meade thinks Obama "hates the middle class".

Uh, no. But my criticism of the president is grounded in reality.

Clint is still on a roll:
Clint Eastwood isn't apologizing for his "empty chair" performance last week, and he is stepping up his criticism of President Obama.

"President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people," Eastwood told his hometown paper, the Carmel, Calif., Pine Cone this week.
