"Jobs Created or Saved" vs. Warriors Wounded or Killed

By Rick Pearcey • November 25, 2009, 12:48 PM

Mr. Obama's cute line on "jobs created or saved" "Flunks Science Test," writes Caroline Baum at Bloomberg.

"At first it was just an unverifiable assertion," she writes. "Now it turns out to have been a case of bureaucratic ineptitude and possible fraud."

Well, that platitude may be a joke, but Obama's dithering on Afghanistan isn't.

One wonders: In the midst of all this presidential indecisiveness, how many additional U.S. warriors have been wounded or killed? How many hung out to dry because a commander in chief is working on his jumpshot? Or setting up show trials for terrorists in New York City?

And how many additional U.S. warriors will be killed or wounded now and tomorrow in Afghanistan and across the world because an American president exudes a weakness and lack of seriousness approaching and perhaps surpassing even that of the ill-famed Jimmy Carter?

Perhaps CNN, MSNBC, and CBS are already looking into this. Perhaps not.

Or perhaps a hard-news outfit like Fox can ask the president about it when he makes an announcement on Afghanistan sometime after Thanksgiving. 

A final point: Weakness invites aggression, but strength invites peace. Go ask Reagan.
