The next front in the War on Terror is NOT going to be Afghanistan. It’s going to be Pakistan. And give it a year or so of heavy fighting, with lots of people killed in the process... and you can bet your last dollar that the Dems will find a way to TRY to turn tail and Cut and RUN on this part of the war also.

We can not afford one single day of an Obama-Biden Presidency.

We need experience in the White House...


Not an Anti-War... Anti- American like Obama!!!
