decision point

After months of deliberating, appraising, analyzing, racking his brain, brooding over, pondering, considering, mulling and ruminating over Afghanistan, the president has finally laid down his thinking cap and made up his mind to do whatever the heck it is that General McChrystal wants to do.

"After completing a rigorous final meeting, President Obama has the information he wants and needs to make his decision and he will announce that decision within days," said Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. "I think everybody will be pleasantly surprised by what he has to say. Okay, not so much pleasantly surprised as relieved to have the damn thing out on the table."

"Speaking of damn, this is one of those decisions where you're damned if you do and damned if you don't," Gibbs continued. "I'm not at liberty to go into specifics of the plan, but I can inform you that the president has decided to go ahead and be damned."
