Gotchya DingleBarry!
Damn hypocrite

Why did The Zero just extend the tours of duty for the Army's 82d Airborn in Afhganistan, but the same guy who critisized Bush for doing the same thing? In fact, then-Senator Scumbag voted to restrict the tour of duty to a max of 12 months.

Things are a little different when your're sitting in The Big Chair, 'eh numb-nuts?
WASHINGTON -- Members of the 82nd Airborne Division headquarters serving in Afghanistan have been told their tours will be extended by 52 days from 12 months to nearly 14 months.Not take a gander at this - Look down to the section entitled;

Barack Obama on Voting Record
Then scroll down to;
Voted YES on limiting soldiers' deployment to 12 months.

Vote on an amendment, SA2032, which amends HR1585, the Defense Authorization bill: To limit the deployment of a unit or individual of the Armed Forces for Operation Iraqi Freedom to no more than 12 consecutive months; and to limit Marine Corps deployment to no more than 7 consecutive months; except in time of national emergency.

Reference: Hagel Amendment to Defense Authorization Bill; Bill SA2032 to HR1585 ; vote number 2007-243 on Jul 11, 2007

Gee, I wonder why the mainstream media hasn't jumped all over this.
