I have been reading a number of pundits lately criticizing your lack of leadership and even detailing that lack. If you really are trying to get re-elected, don't you think YOU should be the one setting the narrative? If you continue to let others define you and then reinforce those definitions by what you say and do, you will have an uphill battle to re-up in 2012.
On the leadership front how about stopping this 2 more years in Iraq nonsense. You will just waste more money and US lives for no purpose. And speaking of no purpose, your shitty little war has long passed its reason to be. And when your field commanders have been there so long they have forgotten the lessons of previous wars. The commanders who sent a Chinook helo into a hot LZ need to be thrown out of the Army. It is time to end your shitty little war in Afghanistan before you waste more money and lives.
