    I think it is interesting that the President to visit the troops. The government has full responsibility for them.

    Too bad Obama could not have shelved his pride for a moment and just once said that the surge in Iraq worked and give Bush the credit. That would be a real man and would make me have some respect for him. After all, he was against the surge, wasn't he????

    What natural resources do they have to share with the world? That seems to be the only reason anyone ever does anything for another country is when they have an interest in their assets.

    Why doesn't anyone say anything about the Revolution in the Republic of Moldavia?! Over 30,000 people in the streets, two dead police officers, restricted internet access, cell phone access and no TV coverage!? What is that about?
