I'll take you any way I can get you.
If Obama is staying in for politics, he deserves to have it used against him.
I don't think the Republicans would get any momentum out of the 'we would have won it' argument. Most realize Bush is largely responsible for getting us into the mess and he had his opportunity to win it. The voting public isn't going to care that Dems controlled Congress - we saw that with the recession.
The longer this goes on Obama's share of the blaim burden only increases. With public support in a continuous decline he has two forces working against him.
As for the Army, they are acting within the parameters provided by the Commander & Cheif. Whenever a military leader proposes something differnent they get replaced. I'm not sure they can show anything until Obama lets them.
