Tonight, about 8:15 pm EST, I will be chatting with Keith Olbermann about Afghanistan, terrorism, and Republican leadership attempts to undermine trust in Obama’s management of America’s security.
McConnell’s operation in the Senate has been distributing talking points in the wake of his return from an Afghanistan visit that say that soldiers are “dangerously preoccupied” with the rights of detainees and confused by Obama’s leadership.
Only problem for Mitch McConnell is that polling shows that the public strongly supports Obama’s management of the “underwear bomber” terrorist attempt and the steps he has taken since.
A new CBS poll shows that 57% of Americans approve of the way Obama has responded to the nearly disastrous Christmas day bombing.
