More Dithering

President Obama said today he's in no rush to send more troops to Afghanistan.

Of course, Obama was all for listening to the generals when he didn't have to back up anything he said.

Speaking about Iraq, Obama remarked in March 2008:

There were generals at the beginning of the conflict that said this is going to require many more troops, will cost us much more ... those generals were pushed aside.

Kind of like how President Obama has pushed General McChrystal aside.

Mr. President, General McChrystal has spoken. Either comply with his request or abandon the mission. Our troops lives depend on it. Afghani lives depend on it.

Dick Cheney is right. Quit dithering.
