Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    I know you love to bash the President at any opportunity, but this time you're just wrong. And someone much more learned than either you or I agrees.

    A leading Army War College historian says the critics are off-base.

    “On the whole, presidents utilize their Secretaries of Defense — they exist for a reason — and for the most part confine their direct consultations to their regional combatant commanders,” notes Professor Mark Grimsley, who currently holds the Harold Keith Johnson Chair of Military History at the Army War College. Obama can and does confer regularly with McChrystal’s boss, [U.S. Central Command chief] General David Petraeus, and that’s as it should be… Obama’s practice is thus the rule, not the exception.”

    I suspect if BHO was having more drect communication with McChrystal, passing by Petraeus and Gates, some conservative blog would be ridiculing BHO for that; and you'd happily post it here.


    I still think Mr Obama doesn't waste much time with anything that won't be on the air.
    That should be obvious to anybody. Well,maybe not.
