    So ... here is what BHO says about Afghanistan now:

    During her campaign Hillary pointed out how important Afghanistan was to BHO at that time.

    Obama did have the time though to vote against a bill providing money for the war in Afghanistan in 2007.

    http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d110:HR02206:

    The Bill included the following funding for Afghanistan.

    Perhaps if Sen. Obama had convened a hearing he would have heard testimony from experts that would have told him that the efforts in Afghanistan come with a price tag.

    Nice thread addition PFIM ... if Afghanistan were unpopular it would have never been mentioned in his speech ... Obama is an opportunist supreme.

    Thanks FBN. I just checked out Obama's "Fight The Smears" website hoping to find an explation on this. Couldn't find any mention of it. Must be pretty hard to "Fight" a "Smear" when your name appears on the Congressional Record as voting against it.
