I Hadn't Thought Of That

When I heard today, that President Obama has promised to have all troops out of Iraq by the end of the year, it was such a strange deja vu. I clearly remember President Nixon promising to end Viet Nam the year before the elections. Now he sweetened the pot a bit more by allowing the 18 year old vote. We'll see if this current president takes any more leads from what seemed to work in the past. I am quite surprised to continue to see President Obama take action that rings of the republican play book. I'm still thinking he needs to do something major concerning the economy and debt, but this administration seems to not mind high living and high debt. Promising to end a war worked in the early 70's, although President Nixon had to resign and was out of office before the last troops actually left Viet Nam. We'll see how it works out 40 years later.
Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but YHWH pondereth the hearts. a Proverb of Holy Scripture
