When Will the Hypocrisy End?!

Ok, to make clear how I feel about the office of the President, no matter who holds said office, I want to say that they have to make difficult and many times unpopular decisions.  This is especially true when it deals with our military.  I am in no way criticizing the current President, or past Presidents for their decisions in this matter.  Now to get to the point that I am criticizing.

“Don’t tell folks that they are going to be going for a 12-month tour, and then it ends up being a 17-month tour. Don’t tell them they’re supposed to be on one tour, and then suddenly they’re on three tours. That, I think, is very important,”  -Barack Obama during his campaign

And now, the 82nd airborne is seeing their tours pushed up to 15 months from 12.  The first increase in tours of duty since former President Bush decreased all tours back to 12 months after the success of the surge.  Is it possible, just once, that a potential candidate for President will realize what I said above, and stop criticizing the sitting President just to get votes?  No probably not, but don’t we have ‘hope’ now, since we elected Comrade Obama?
