BHO has yet to surprise me.
Hopefully the Congress will grow a big enough set of huevos to defund our ongoing "Mission to do right, 'cause doin' right ain't got no end". Of course the Treasury will probably be able to shift funds around or raid pension funds to come up with the money, and Charlie Mike. Personally, I don't see the administration pulling out of anywhere anytime soon. A total financial collapse would have to occur for them to even consider it. Judging by current events, we might not have very long for that to happen.
