The President has reached his decision on Afghanistan, and given his speech. There’s nothing much that can be done about this military escalation issue right now. It may make you feel better to gripe, kvetch, and moan on the tubez about the Afghanistan policy, but there are two big events coming up in the next 48 hours that perhaps we can still impact. President Obama’s jobs summit, in honor of which I've blogged an infrastructure repair and building program of oh, around 19 million new jobs.
And the confirmation hearing to re-appoint Ben Bernanke as chairman of the Federal Reserve System, before the Senate Banking Committee.
Do you want to try and make a difference? Then NOW is the time to raise a mighty shout across the land. Read below the fold...
