Compost: Courage?

Obama, on 219 liberal Democrats and one first-term Republican in a poor, liberal district voting for a government run overhaul of the health care system:
Speaking in the Rose Garden exactly 24 hours after he appeared there Saturday to call for House passage of the bill, Mr. Obama praised House members for what he called a ‘’courageous vote” that “brought us closer than we have ever been” to extending coverage to millions of uninsured Americans. He said the bill fulfilled his promise to bring sweeping change to the lives of millions of Americans.
Obama, on visiting Fort Hood, TX in the aftermath of the shootings this week by an Islamist soldier:
Oh, right. That was former President Bush that visited. Obama was at the Capitol rallying his liberals in Congress to do what they do best: spend a trillion dollars on a wild-eyed, already proven to fail government program that doesn't achieve what it promises.

What else did Obama have to say about war strategy and troops?

Obama, on the courage of American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq:
Obama, on his plans and his reaction to Gen. McChrystal's strategies for Afghanistan:
Obama, on the Cambridge, MA police department investigating a possible breaking & entering:
"No. 2, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home."
That's the courage in Obama's convictions.
