That’s how you do it. Peace through strength.
We NEED someone like him!
Peace through superior firepower.
I’m curious. Were you guys happy with Bush-Cheney?
Obama took out Osama bin Laden — something his war-mongering predecessors failed to do — and he’s knocked off much of the al-Qaeda leadership.
He played a key role in facilitating the elimination of Quaddafi, something Reagan never did.
He’s worked hard to boost benefits for veterans, who were treated shabbily under the previous adminstration.
What is it about Obama that you so detest? Surely it isn’t the results of his policies.
I’ll take a stab at this.
I can’t say I agreed with everything Bush ever did (No Child Left Behind, Bank Bailouts, etc) but when it came to the war on terror I thought he did an honorable job considering the position he was thrown in (not inherited). I don’t really regret us taking out Saddam either despite there not being any weapons of mass destruction. Its not warmongering to offensively take out threats to our country if evidence pointed us there. I was also for enhanced interrogation to root out all the terrorists scumbags.
Speaking of which, yes Obama was able to put the hit on Osama…thanks to enhanced interrogation. I do applaud him for doing so…although I personally wouldn’t have taken half as long to pull the figurative trigger. I could say more but I’ll leave it at that. I’ll actually give him this moment to gloat…
Obama had nothing to do with the death of Muammar Gaddafi. Nothing. You need to read up on the Battle of Tripoli. You’ll notice Obama’s name doesn’t appear anywhere in there. But since we’re talking about it, I do believe Obama has been totally wrong about the Arab Spring and we made a mistake handing over so much power to the Muslim Brotherhood who will most likely be as bad, if not worse, than the old crony dictators that were in power.
I honestly have no idea what you’re talking about regarding veteran benefits except that when Obama gutted defense spending he vowed not to cut veteran’s benefits…unless your talking about the benefits he passed back in ‘09? Either way, he also cut active and retired military healthcare benefits this year…but left the defense bureaucrats benefits untouched. I don’t know what you mean by Bush treated them “shabbily” considering he also raised benefits for veterans (unless you can provide a legitimate link with facts.)
I think you pinpointed why a good majority of the country (including Democrats) don’t like Obama…the results from his policies. I was going to go on a huge tirade on all the screw-ups and poor socialist decisions he’s made in his short first term but I’ll just say 42 months of 8%+ unemployment, $16 Trillion in debt ($6T of which he is directly responsible for, not Bush), 2 drops in our credit ratings, and more deaths of our troops overseas than Bush. I’ll just leave you with this video (don’t worry it’s actually really well-done) that points out a ton of Obama’s problems using nothing but his own words as proof:
If you want more proof, you should watch another really good movie called I Want Your Money; it’s a bit older but still hits home on why Obama’s policies have not worked and will never work. You can watch it on Netflix Instant also.
