  1. What won’t work is for him to be half in and half out of it. If your gonna go to war then go to war in a full-blown way! Otherwise we look weak, indecisive and inept. I mean, who really wants war? But, they are on our soil, planning and scheming and it’s time, perhaps, for Obama to grow a pair and do what needs to be done. Maybe I’m just cranky and overworked! LOL!
