Latest from The Spokesman-Review
Through the razor-sharp drawing of David Horsey, this morning we fire right off with President Obama and the War in Afghanistan. Recently President Obama sent his “think tank” of advisors back to the drawing board, suggesting that he didn’t feel he had enough options on the table. Some will quickly agree, it takes more guts and sheer belief in oneself to make such an unpopular decision than it does to make a decision that the majority supports.
What we also have to remember is that President Obama inherited both the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and he simply has to decide how best to conclude them. He is going to conclude them, one would hope, or perhaps he will be doomed to leaving them for the next Presidential campaign.
Not that they particularly make good campaign material. I personally think President Obama needs to make getting Americans back to work his top priority, thus fixing the economy.
Now that we’re back to writing in my favorite word processing application again, that seems to be the question of the day. What do you think should be President Obama’s top priority?
