The last combat brigade left Iraq today - nearly two weeks ahead of schedule. While approximately 50,000 troops will remain, President Obama has made good on his word. In very difficult times, the President is performing to the highest standards, as shown in a recent poll that stated that 57% of Americans believe he is performing as expected and 17% say he is performing beyond expectation. So, how about giving the man a break and contacting your congressional representatives, demanding that they work with him. Yes, we can get something done in America if we want to...
