After last night’s address to the nation concerning his Afghan Strategy, the Anointed One received many notes of thanks from around the globe:
Dear President Obama,
Thank you so much for the information concerning your projected date of withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Your advice is of great import to us as it will save our Brothers much time and effort. We can now concentrate on training our troops, stockpiling weapons and recruitment for a future takeover of Afghanistan.
In the meantime, we will continue to rest in Pakistan. This is sorely needed as we have been fighting for many years and our bones are weary.
In closing, we have one favor to ask you. Do you think you might find it in your heart to send us a Wii? The nights are long and television sucks here.
With great respect and appreciation,
Here’s one from an unnamed Afghani National Guardsman:
Thank you sooo much for letting us know in advance that we are SCREWED. Your half-assed commitment to our cause is truly heartwarming.
Last night 200 recruits fled into the night. I believe I heard them say they were going to Pakistan to play Wii with the Taliban. I have no idea what this means, but it doesn’t sound good.

Then there was this one from our European Allies:
Are you f***ing serious!?!?
Good Lord, man, do you really expect us to commit more troops to Afghanistan when you have given up before you even start? Why should anyone back your play when you are clearly not interested in victory?
We will have to think long and hard about putting more young men and women in harm’s way for a cause that even the United States of America does not believe in. You will be hearing from us in, oh, ninety days or so…
Mr. President, Sir:
I am writing to express my deep appreciation for your commitment to our Armed Forces. My fellow Marines and I were able to watch your speech on Fox this morning.
We especially enjoyed the part when you said we will be getting some relief by 2010. I never realized what a funny guy you are. Maybe you can invite my family over for a beer after my funeral.

Leave it to Stormy to pin the tail on the a.. donkey, yeah, that’s it.
Thanx, Patrick. I try 😉
President Obama’s problem is that he is all talk and hot air. He talks and talks … and talks but I am yet to hear him saying something with any substance.
Didn’t look like the Cadets were impressed. I spent most of my childhood living about 1/2 hour south of West Point. Beautiful place. The ghosts of Patton, Grant and many other famous generals were most likely NOT happy with his speech either.
…..and I am the first president ever to do whatever it is I do. The I’s have it again. I have known my share of narcissists, but never with such a high level. “There will never be another me”.
It certainly didn’t take almost 3 months to come up with that plan. It must have taken 3 months to write that speech, that must have been the wait.
Another good read, thanks Sstorm.
and…..LeMeiux was “concerned” what a burden the Crap and Tax bill would put on Floridians, concerned he should be outraged.
We do have to give his speech writers credit for NOT using “unprecedented”. I also have to give kudos to Senator McCain for finally showing some emotion. At the hearing today you could almost see the steam coming out of his ears.
As for the Anointed One, we can only hope there will never be another him.
I can’t believe I am going to quote Chuck Woolery, but here goes “The words ‘career’ and ‘politician’ should never be used together.” You are right, they are dumb.
See and enjoy:
I hope you like it.
His ‘lowness’ couldn’t find the words “win” or “victory” on his teleprompter. He would have choked on them.
