Late Night Humor

Jon Stewart thinks President Obama may have been a bit too optimistic. Obama says: "This is America. We don't do what's easy. We do what's necessary." Stewart says: "Have you met America? Have you been to America?....In your little plan there, if you're wondering whether to go with necessary or easy? I'd go with easy." Here's the video:

Jimmy Kimmel, via U.S. News: "Obama said that we can overcome this crisis if we're all willing to work hard and make sacrifices. So, in other words, we're screwed."

Steven Colbert looks at the night's brilliant orator.

“You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else.”

-- Winston Churchill

Well at this point we've tried just about everything else

President Barack Hussein Obama's decision, if executed, to pull-out all American troops from troubled Iraq by 2011 is a welcome move. But why on earth the US leader can't apply the same logic to Afghanistan. He seemed hell bent on wasting his country's manpower and resources in war-torn South Asian nation that will bring bad name to Washington. It will be a win-win situation for both the United States as well as Afghan masses suffering at the hands of the EU-US troops and Islamist extremists if alien forces are pulled-out of that country.Why not let the Afghans tackle the menace by themselves instead of some 'Super Power' fighting on their behalf?
