After the debate last night many pundits declared mission accomplished with Mitt's performance in the debate. Only problem is that last time a noted Republican was anywhere near the mission accomplished statement it went downhill from there. The famous mission accomplished aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln had to wait almost 10 years before the combat forces were withdrawn. Obama had a part in that "mission accomplished" as well.
If this mission accomplished has the same type of time-line, then the democrats are safe in the White House until around 2022.
