Marco Rubio told the crowd at the Values Voter Summit that Boehner had resigned and about half of them rose to give a standing ovation.   I suspect these folks are the core audience for conservative talk radio.

Boehner approved the Afghan surge, as did most all the Rethugs, Ron but not Rand Paul excepted.
Then we had the "expert" AJ Strata who assured his sheeple he had sources who assured him the war was won by around 2009 and the Taliban vanquished to a tiny few acres in some hinterland.
Hey, AJ......

"The loss of Kunduz city, if confirmed, would be a major blow to the Afghan government and military, which have struggled to maintain security after US and NATO forces have drawn down to a token presence. Kunduz city would be the first provincial capital to fall to the Taliban.

Additionally, the fall of Kunduz would invalidate the entire US “surge” strategy from 2009 to 2012. The US military focused its efforts on the southern Afghan provinces of Helmand and Kandahar, claiming that these provinces were the key to breaking the Taliban. Little attention was given to other areas of Afghanistan, including the northern provinces, where the Taliban have expended considerable effort in fighting the military and government. Today, the Taliban are gaining ground in northern, central, eastern and southern Afghanistan, with dozens of districts falling under Taliban control over the past year."

Speaking of immoral wars Hillary outed herself again on MTP.

She is still blaming her Iraq vote on the Bush strategy, not on the lies about the WMDs (which she could have cared less about one way or another, provided the war was short and won) or the immorality of pre-emptive war. What honest "progressive" could vote for the opportunist who took pleasure in helping kill Khadaffi and turning Libya into jihad paradise?

"Now, with those that you did, you know, number one on the Iraq War vote, I've written about it, I've talked about it, I said it was a mistake. It certainly became a very clear mistake when you saw the way the Bush Administration conducted that war and the decisions that they made."
