Campaign 2012's Biggest Disconnect: Americans Want Out of Afghanistan, Candidates Would Rather Ignore It



Arianna Huffington is right. Neither party wants to talk about the wars or foreign policy. The American voters are expected to pretend that they just don't exist. War, the new normal!
You'd think a ten-and-a-half year war would be a major issue in a presidential campaign -- especially a war going as badly as the one in Afghanistan. And especially in the wake of Sen.
