Despite his budget, Obama making sounder decisions -- this time on force kept in Iraq

Mounting criticism from the Left shows that President Barack Obama made the right decision in his plans to keep a larger than expected force in Iraq after the big pullout to be completed in 2010.

The size of force that will remain to the end of 2011 is the president's recognition of the sacrfice made there. And it shows he has listened to many of the loved ones of the fallen in Iraq. Their sacrifice should not be in vain.

He also realizes the danger of Iran sweeping in and taking over, and becoming a Muslim superpower to threaten Israel, our great friend.

I can tell you that for the six Gold Star Moms who are my friends, and the servicemen who are close to me, Obama has made a courageous, wise choice.

The Left and the Pelosi-led House will give him a lot of problems over this decision. But Obama has the support of the people who count, and who make the sacrifice each day for the freedoms we enjoy.

Thank you, Mr. President.
