Add Jobs, Not Troops

So is this what Obama has in mind for adding jobs? 34,000 of em, to Afghanistan?

This isn't what I had in mind when I voted for him last year.

Can someone get through to Obama and his braintrust of political "pros" in the White House that he is digging the grave of his presidency and quite possibly (see USSR, 1980s) this country with all this more war/more boons for bankers stuff?

There is a huge pent-up fed-up populist rage out there, and if the Dems won't start heeding and serving it, the Right will be happy to, fraudulent and toxic as they are. Then God help us (and he won't).
