I didn’t see the president’s speech because I was gaming last night…

…but other than Chris Matthews saying publicly how some on the left consider the troops and West Point I don’t have a big issue here.

I don’t care if he gave a good speech, I don’t care about the politics of it all that much.

All I care about is the commanders are going to get the troops we need to win. It would be nice if he talked about victory but I’m much more interested if he actually MANAGES victory.

Eyes on the prize, he is a radical left wing president, domestically he is going to push a left wing agenda but his primary job is as commander in chief during wartime is to win the war and protect us from attack.

If he does that on balance this will be a successful presidency. A victory in Afghanistan is more important than a victory in 2010 or 2012.

There are plenty of reasons to oppose this president, but if we win, then the war won’t be one of them, and that’s good for America.

Sarah Palin has it exactly right:

As long as we’re in to win, and as long as troop level decisions are based on conditions on the ground and the advice of our military commanders, I support President Obama’s decision.

Eyes on the prize. If you can’t tell the difference between a political enemy and the real enemy you have to get your priorities straight.

Update: John McCain doesn’t like the timeline, neither do I, but not to worry; just remember the immortal words of Jim Gerathey at NRO’s the Campaign Spot:

All Barack Obama Statements Come With an Expiration Date. All Of Them.

That timeline is going to go the way of the Dodo.
