Obama did his dash with the Australian public long ago. His totally out of line comments regarding our troop contributions have only ensured that he will be very, very unwelcome in our country should he win office. If I was in charge, I'd have pulled our troops out of any and all US-led operations just to show this young fool with an insecure grasp on the importance of his allies just how important our contribution is.
I'm on the anyone-but-Obama bandwagon.
The greatest delight is to mark one's enemy, prepare everything, avenge oneself thoroughly, and then go to sleep.
