Obama Rolled By Pentagon Generals

There is no other way to spin this, no matter how hard they try, than the reality: Obama was rolled by his generals and is a fundamentally weak president:

“President Obama urgently looked for a way out of the war in Afghanistan last year, repeatedly pressing his top military advisers for an exit plan that they never gave him, according to secret meeting notes and documents cited in a new book by journalist Bob Woodward.

As Col. Lang notes:

The bottom line here is that President Obama does not really have the generals under control. This is a potentially disastrous portent for America’s future. The president makes policy. The generals carry it out. That is the American tradition.

That is weakness, at its very core.

So, how many other issues has Obama felt strongly about that he got rolled on?
