Another joke. Can anybody assemble a more incompetent group of people in one room at one time for an issue of such magnitude? MOM.. this is what we have here "MOM" Meeting of Morons.

Lead by an empty suited moron or morons.. yep.. incompetent, Chicago style "politics" drives this ship. Dang if I want to go down with the rats. Not a bad idea to leave the country for the next 3 years. Warmer climbs and street people.. even the street people in Costa Rica are smarter than this group.. the MOMs.

I wonder if David Axelrod, Robert Gibbs and Rahm Emmanuel are also attending.

This is the group that express the political concerns of the progressive/liberal segment of the party.

They are part of the problem and not part of the solution!

Robert Gates actually has a long and distinguished career serving our country and making hard but correct decisions while refusing to play politics as much as possible. He's a very pragmatic leader and deserves alot of respect. I can't speak for everyone else though.

It never ceases to amaze me how know-nothings with an agenda -- I'm looking at you, rameo and wilsoncjr -- think they're fooling anyone by lobbing these dud grenades and thinking they're convincing anybody. Not that it matters, but I know two of the people who attended. I can assure you there is plenty of brain power around that table.
