What's with President Obama's inability to make a decision?

I don't understand why President Obama does not seem to be able to make a decision about sending more troops to Afghanistan.

Now I'm not a military person. I have never studied military science......but I have played Risk, OK? It seems to me that numbers are important. If General McChrystal says he need more troops what on Earth is Obama waiting for? Why is he leaving our troops currently there vulnerable? If you think the war in Afghanistan is important, send them what they need, for heaven's sakes!!!! If you don't want to win that war (which I think would be a mistake) then bring them all home!! The worst thing to do is to leave them over there without the numbers they need.
I have heard the administration say that there are other ways to look at the situation. Really. Other opinions held by generals on the ground in the middle of the conflict?

Here's what former vice president Cheney said about this yesterday as reported in CBSnews.com:
"The White House must stop dithering while America's armed forces are in danger," the former vice president said. "It's time for President Obama to do what it takes to win a war he has repeatedly and rightly called a war of necessity."
Amen. I would love to hear the opinions of you military families out there.
May the Lord protect our troops everywhere and especially in Afghanistan.

I am not a military family, but I could just explode when I hear about foolish things Obama is doing (like fundraising) while the generals are waiting for some kind of reasonable response.

Me too, Laura. Why can't he make the decision? Why the stalling?

You probably don't want to even know what I have to say about this..it isn't pretty.

I DO want to know, Suzanne. Sometimes the truth isn't pretty. (I know, though, I can open my mouth on stuff like this and find out 5 minutes later what I said and didn't mean to. LOL)

I think, its just that I do pray, first of all and will continue ..for him, for leadership. Still, I have a very scary gut feeling that this man doesn't care..isn't out for our good in hardly anything and is as never going to be prolife, respect the freedom of religion for people and well, I just don't think he will change, but by the GRACE of God.. and I for one, do not know what that means. I just don't even give him much of a benefit of the doubt, if you know what I mean..I have never felt this strongly about anyone..in my lifetime..ever..that is what creeps me out.
