Barack Obama’s newest demonstration of leadership malfeasance is the cowardly leaking by the White House of his upcoming commitment of 34,000 additional troops for Afghanistan. He slyly, albeit rather transparently, a first for him, leaks the info so he can poll test his supposed decision before he takes the political risk of announcing it after Thanksgiving. I guess this is what Democrat Progressives call leadership brilliance. I call it cowardice, disgraceful and incompetent. Once again Obama shows the world and unfortunately our troops that U.S. leadership is spineless, stupid and lacking in any real will to win. I believe this is also referred to as “emboldening the enemy”, which could rise (or sink actually) to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors. Is this the change you voted for?
