Paul Ryan to CBS - "We agree with Obama's timeline of 2014 to pull troops from Afghanistan."

Sorry folks, but it's looking like we're going to be in Afghanistan with either Romney or Obama until AT LEAST the end of 2014.

They are all the same. Warmongering, overspending, interventionists. ZERO differences in their administration. Considering that Obama called for March, 2009 for an original "Timeline", I guess we can expect 4 more years... of unconstitutional, undeclared war in Afghanistan.

About 3:45 into this video.

By the way; what a hack on foreign policy. Is it just me, or did it seem like Paul Ryan was caught completely off-guard, as to not really even know what Romney's foreign policy, and plan was for Afghanistan?

It does make me wonder.

The debates between Obama & Romney will be coming up. Makes me wonder how Gary Johnson would do in those debates, especially when debating foreign policy. Though I'm not voting for Gary, just to hear a voice for 'Honestly' wanting to bring our troops home would at least be nice to hear.

The timeline

for them to pull out is NEVER!

Yeah right.. Obama signed a deal to keep troops there til 2024.

This is another example of the Establishment's left/right propagandists lying to the American people yet again. The fact is they have no intention of ever leaving Afghanistan or any of the countries they have have laid siege too.

Hitler would be proud.

Obama in Afghanistan to Sign Deal to Continue War Through 2024

Months of “not quite public” Obama Administration efforts to negotiate a still-secret pact to ensure that US troops will continue to occupy Afghanistan through at least 2024 came to an end today, with a “not quite public” visit to Afghanistan by President Obama to sign the pact.

At least that is what they say! lol

And obama was going to bring the troops home his first day in office. Sure glad I didn't take that one to the bank! lol (but really it is not funny to have another liar in chief)

Romeny might say that, but same as o'bomb'ya....there will be one excuse or another for war, occupations, humanitarian efforts....who knows they might even think up some more creative names for deployment and invasion.

This is actually an

This is actually an improvement from what Romney used to believe in. He used to support staying in Afghanistan indefinitely. Maybe he's finally figured out that he can't win the election running on a platform of endless war.

TOTALLY LUDICROUS

This whole thing is getting TOTALLY LUDICROUS!

On my way to work this morning, I heard an Obama snippet of him criticizing Romney for not talking about the banker's bailouts he had favored, when the saphead himself left the friggin' campaign trail to push & pimp the '08 Banking Bailouts himself!

And, guess who was cheering in the background? His supporters, complete LEMMINGS, idiots....complete & total idiots!

I'm sure Romney got asked about the war plenty, after Clint

Eastwood announced to the nation that Romney wanted to withdraw the troops from Afghanistan - tomorrow... with the crowd applauding. I'm not surprised at the crowd reaction, when 70% of the American PEOPLE want us OUT. I'm sure it came as a pleasant surprise to many in the convention center, those without a clue what Romney actually stands for; a pleasant surprise, too, for the troops serving in the AFGHANISTAN WAR, going on for 11 years and counting (the count now up to 2,000 servicemen killed). But I'm sure there were also a few not so pleasantly surprised in and around especially Washington, Florida, and New York. And when after the convention Romney started getting the calls, I imagine he promised his handlers, cross his heart and hope to die, yes he WAS still pro-war, Eastwood had just gone off script and wanted to get some sure applause by quoting Ron Paul. FYI, as to the "2014" troop-withdrawal timeline that Ryan clarified Obama and Romney were in agreement on (and was a "reassessment" date), the DATE is December 31, 2014, that is, by "2015."

Lovefest...

It may look like the Republicans and Democrats agree on everything and are having a great love fest, but that's not true. There are HUGE differences, like the Democrats support Obama and the Republicans support Romney.

Not True

We've already committed funds to build schools, roads, bridges, etc. in Afghanistan until 2024 (at least).

None of that! Complaints of

None of that! Complaints of welfarism are reserved for local welfare queens. Criticizing foreign welfarism is unamerican and makes us unsafe! /sarcasm

Was there any doubt

Was there any doubt otherwise? I'm just crossing my fingers that we won't go to war with Iran under either candidate.

The foreign policy is the same in both parties

Why it was priceless when Eastwood brought up Iraq and Afghanistan...the GOP neocons were pooping their pants on that one....BRAVO EASTWOOD...he said what they would not allow Paul to say. We should all send him some love. Anyway we know what the Romney foreign policy is....war with Syria....war with Iran....unconditional support for Israel...even if they start WW3. One thing that we should start focusing on instead of who wins or who we will vote for is the AUDIT THE FED BILL IN THE SENATE SPONSORED BY Rand Paul. This is an issue that all Americans can get behind regardless if Obama,Romney or Johnson is their man. This bill will have to be voted on by all parties and all voters need to put pressure on their elected officials in office. This is more important than who wins in November.....we are getting off topic. Audit the Fed is the most important thing that has hit congress in 100 years and we need to unite everyone on this!!!!!!!!!!!

No Surprise

Why pull out of Afghanistan, while you are making drug money there and planning to start World War 3 by bombing Iran? It is time to stand for a better choice.

"We gett the same CFR directives on foreign policy

So I would agree with Obama on the matter unlees he goes off of the CFR messaging."

With all due respect, I will no longer be a voting prostitute for Constitution rejecting harlots.

The news is for the kind

The news is for the kind people of people getting scammed by Nigerians, a normal person can't trust Obama or Ryan.

It is a start.

It is a start. One year ago, the Republican positions was that Obama was a secret Muslim terrorist because he pulled out of Iraq and set a timeline for Afghanistan. Now, they agree with his position on Afghanistan and are pretty quiet about the Iraq withdrawal/

Going to post that. You beat me to it... I guess if they tell lies big enough for long enough ppl will believe it. ObaMAO extended till 2024. We aren't there to stabilize it or train anyone either. We are there to mine the crap out of it. You would think we would have learned from Russia.
