What are the right-wingers upset about? They got everything they wanted. I could understand why some on the other side of the aisle are mad, but not those on the right. McChrystal made a request, Obama gave him everything he wanted, and the troops are going to be there faster than he even requested.
And yet they are mad at Obama. I just simply don’t get it. I don’t even get the anger over the “timeline,” because unless I am completely forgetting things, the Bush surge originally only planned for the troops to be there for a set period before scaling back from the surge. Otherwise it wouldn’t be a surge, it would simply be a major escalation. The plan was to surge the troops to Baghdad, stabilize the region, and then withdraw.
What am I not understanding? What am I missing?
