Afghanistan War

Guess Which President Said This

By on 3.24.15 | 2:54PM

President Obama and Afghani President Ghani just had a joint press conference.

Guess which one said "I would also like to thank the American taxpayer for his and her hard-earned dollars that have enabled" (the United States to help Afghanistan militarily and otherwise.)

Actually, I'm sorry for asking you such an easy question.

President Obama would never thank taxpayers since the Progressive view of taxation is that money belongs to government first, and whatever we get to keep is only due to the kind-heartedness of politicians.

I don't know much about Ghani, but with some of his very first words spoken in the United States being to thank those of us who funded the Afghanistan War, he starts out on a good foot with me.

Conservatives are too prone to think of CIA as our valiant defenders rather than what they are: dangerously incompetent.

Obama's on the fence, and both the Left and the Right are rightly worried about what he might do. But the U.S. military just might save their commander-in-chief from himself.
