President Obama - Mr. Tough Guy

I think General McChrystal was right to resign.The NewsBusters link below indicates that some of the material was considered "off the record."

However, this did happen during the General's watch. He did the honorable thing. And the president accepted. That was the bigger mistake.

If President Obama wanted to show any true concern for our military and the objective in Afghanistan, he would have set aside his personal hurt, rejected the General's resignation, and sent him back to the field with what he needed to do the job. I guess that would have required some humility. Instead, the president had to show us how tough he is. At least he didn't have to fire him.
