Monday Open Thread [10.17.11]

Filed in National by on October 17, 2011

Some news from the weekend that you may have missed: President Obama is abandoning plans to keep U.S. troops in Iraq past a year-end withdrawal deadline, and the remaining 40,000 troops will be returned or otherwise redeployed by January. For those progressive critics who like to say Obama has 7 or 8 wars going on at the moment, you will have to adjust your criticism a little bit.

Herman Cain hates drunk driving laws. That should play well. Isn’t Rush Limbaugh now pretty much officially a traitor? Well, no, not yet. But he is getting pretty close. He has sided with terrorists against the United States.
