I never thought I would say or write the words “Impeach Obama,” but I’m doing it. I supported Obama’s bid for the presidency, but he has taken a terrible situation created by Bush and the Republicans, and made it far worse. To add insult to injury, he now seems incapable of getting us out of the complete mess that is Afghanistan. Given today’s headlines that we may be in Afghanistan until 2014 or later, it is time for radical change.

How dare any American leader continue to send America’s sons and daughters to their deaths, fighting for a corrupt and delusional “government” in Kabul? How can we continue to send billions of U.S. dollars to Afghanistan, when here at home we are cutting medical benefits for children and the elderly, and are looking at all kinds of budget reductions. This is insane!

Obama needs to wake up, finally show some political courage and get us out of Afghanistan. If he fails to do this, then the new Republican majority in the House of Representatives should force the issue. If Obama won’t get us out of Afghanistan, the Republicans will certainly have a more valid reason to impeach him than they did when they went after Bill Clinton. 

Someone, somehow, must take the lead and get America out of the insanity of Afghanistan.
