This year at the end of May, U.S. forces recorded 3,000 deaths in Afghanistan. You probably never heard of it because the media ignored the story.

Under President Bush, when U.S. deaths in Iraq climbed to 100, the media reported it with seemingly ghoulish glee and every 100 deaths after was yet another “grim milestone.” Every day you watched the evening news there was a number on the wall behind the new’s anchor.

    Well written a fact filled.....so that makes you a racist or bigot are some other label..... the liberal wacko's can not be forced to face facts......they are children, and like children they just want to play and be irresponsible with no consequences........ do we really want the man/child re-elected? That damage he will cause if re-elected will be unrecoverable...... look at europe, people! Its their policies that Obama is implimenting..........do you really want to doom your children and grandchildren to a country of welfare recipients? You golks do remember the Carter years right? Time to do the right thing..... vote for excellence not dependence......!
