Barack Obama, our next President

The Iraq War, the 2007 troop surge there, the 2008 financial meltdown and the response to Katrina in 2005 are featured in an interactive exhibit called "decision points theater" where visitors can assess "the decisions that I had to make and the recommendations I received," he says.
http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/g...
it's like...'It might not be my fault that I screwed up. You decide.'
as i said....LOL
That's the case for any president.

Decisions are made based on the information received.

The debacle after Katrina was directly linked to the mayor not evacuating the citizens when hoards of school buses were sitting on standby UNUSED as well as the Governor refusing to give the federal government permission to send in ARMED national guardsman until the liberal media made sure Bush was blamed first.

Bush was not going to send in the National Guard UNARMED and Governors are, BY LAW, required to give any president permission.

Everyone knew Saddam was a threat. Only Democrats became weasels for political gain when the tides turned.

The surge was the best decision Bush made. Even Obama was forced to admit that.

The point is, Mighty Dumb Builder, is that you said nothing while Reagan & Bush gave Egypt piles of money & built up that military that they now control. It goes to your hypocrisy & immense dumbassedness.
Mubarak was a friend, regardless of how Obama felt about him. Radical Muslims orchestrated the Arab Spring, Obama, "the most informed president on earth" knew this. He helped facilitate Mubarak's overthrow, thus choosing a radical Islamist over a moderate friend. He was also briefed on Morsi's political history and knew everything about his leadership role in the Muslim Brotherhood. Morsi even tried to usurp dictatorial powers that would have given him Mubarak-like control, the same control Obama railed against. It was Morsi's fellow brotherhood pals who talked him back, Obama was conspicuously, silent. The players, circumstances and obligations, in Egypt, have changed and Obama helped change them. A prudent American president would NEVER have assisted an avowed enemy of America and Israel (most likely, that's why Obama did it).

LOL...I can't say I'm surprised you prevaricated Obama's responsibility with the standard, childish, Bush/Regan line - again.

UN Inspectors confirmed and agreed Saddam would resume his WMD program as soon as the world wasn't watching.

If you think he was just going to play nice if the UN gave up on their ongoing and neverending resolutions, you're cuckoo.

The surge was the best decision Bush made. Even Obama was forced to admit that.
Even author Bob Woodward, who had published best-sellers that praised Bush’s early war judgments, concluded that the “surge” was only one factor and possibly not even a major one in the declining violence.

In his book, The War Within, Woodward wrote,“In Washington, conventional wisdom translated these events into a simple view: The surge had worked. But the full story was more complicated. At least three other factors were as important as, or even more important than, the surge.”

Woodward, whose book drew heavily from Pentagon insiders, listed the Sunni rejection of al-Qaeda extremists in Anbar Province and the surprise decision of al-Sadr to order a cease-fire as two important factors. A third factor, which Woodward argued may have been the most significant, was the use of new highly classified U.S. intelligence tactics that allowed for rapid targeting and killing of insurgent leaders.

Beyond the dubious impact of the “surge” on the gradual reduction in violence, Bush’s escalation failed to achieve its other stated goals, particularly creating political space so the Sunni-Shiite divisions over issues like oil profits could be resolved. Despite the sacrifice of additional American and Iraqi blood, those compromises did not materialize.

And, if you’re wondering what the “surge” and its loosened rules of engagement meant for Iraqis, you should watch the WikiLeaks’“Collateral Murder” video, which depicts a scene during the “surge” when U.S. firepower mowed down a group of Iraqi men, including two Reuters journalists, as they walked down a street in Baghdad. The U.S. attack helicopters then killed a father and wounded his two children when the man stopped his van in an effort to take survivors to the hospital.

However, in Washington, the still-influential neocons saw an opportunity in 2008 when the numbers of Iraq War casualties declined. The neocons credited themselves and the “successful surge” with the improvement as they polished up their tarnished reputations, badly stained by the blood of the long and disastrous conflict.

As the neocons pushed the “successful surge” myth, they were aided by the mainstream news media, which also had promoted the ill-fated war and was looking for a way to bolster its standing with the public. Typical of this new conventional wisdom, Newsweek published a cover story on the “surge” under the title,“victory at last.” To say otherwise brought you harsh criticism for not giving credit to “the troops.”

Thus, the myth grew that Bush’s “surge” had brought Iraqi violence under control and the United States to the brink of “victory.” Gen. David Petraeus, who took command of Iraq after Bush yanked Casey and Abizaid, was elevated into hero status as a military genius. Also, Defense Secretary Robert Gates received the encomium of “wise man” for implementing the “surge” after Bush fired Donald Rumsfeld in November 2006 for standing behind his field generals and suggesting a faster U.S. troop drawdown in Iraq.

With the new conventional wisdom firmly established in 2008, media stars pounded Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama for his heresy regarding the “surge.” In major televised interviews, CBS News’ Katie Couric and ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos demanded that Obama admit he was wrong to oppose the “surge” and that his Republican rival, Sen. John McCain, was right to support it.

For weeks, Obama held firm, insisting correctly that the issue was more complicated than his interviewers wanted to admit. He argued that there were many factors behind Iraq’s changed security environment. But ultimately he caved in while being interrogated on Sept. 4 by Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly.

“I think that the surge has succeeded in ways that nobody anticipated,” Obama confessed to O’Reilly.“It’s succeeded beyond our wildest dreams.”

Much as Hagel is likely to do, Obama judged that continued resistance to this Washington “group think” was futile. But candidate Obama’s surrender on the “successful surge” myth had long-term consequences.

For one, it gave Gen. Petraeus and Defense Secretary Gates inflated reputations inside Official Washington and greater leverage in 2009 to force President Obama into accepting a similar “surge” in Afghanistan, what some analysts now regard as Obama’s biggest national security blunder.[For details, see Robert Parry’s America’s Stolen Narrative.]

The Iraq War’s “surge” also did nothing to change the trajectory of an eventual American defeat there. Perhaps the only real accomplishment of the “surge” was to let President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney enjoy a decent interval between their departure from government in early 2009 and the unceremonious U.S. departure from Iraq in late 2011.

In the final accounting of the neocon adventure of conquering Iraq, nearly 4,500 American soldiers had died; some 30,000 were wounded; and an estimated $1 trillion was squandered. What was ultimately left behind was not only a devastated Iraqi population but an authoritarian Shiite government (in place of Saddam Hussein’s authoritarian Sunni government) and an Iraq that had become a regional ally of Iran (rather than a bulwark against Iran).

The hard truth is that this bloody folly was not “salvaged” by the “surge” despite what the likes of Michael O’Hanlon and George F. Will claim. The “surge” simply extended the killing for a few more years and bought Bush and Cheney their “decent interval.”

But none of this reality has persuaded Official Washington to rethink its “successful surge” orthodoxy – and more likely than not, Chuck Hagel will be forced to genuflect before this conventional wisdom to win his Senate confirmation.

Eliminating the middle man, insurance companies, will bring costs down. The government will set the costs of procedures which will be uniform; they can also negotiate the price of medications on behalf of American citizens. This is how it is done in Canada,
single payer healthcare paid through taxation and not attached to employment.
This is from your article; it appears that you are having a reading comprehension problem:
"The trillion-dollar question is how can we reduce unnecessary medical spending so that we can afford to provide affordable, high quality health care to all Americans? A number of recent studies estimate that a third of all health care expenditures are unnecessary and that eliminating wasteful spending would save over 800 billion dollars a year. Since every dollar of so-called unnecessary spending is a dollar of income to a health care provider, reigning in health care spending is much more easily said than done."
You claim that the GOP has a plan to reduce costs; oh really? Like what? The AHCA is far from perfect, but it is a beginning to the birth of universal single payer healthcare; it's inevitable.
You only have to watch the first 15 minutes to get the gist.

But here is PBS's synopsis:

"Money & Medicine investigates the dangers the nation faces from runaway health care spending as well as the dangers patients face from over-diagnosis and over-treatment. In addition to illuminating the waste and overtreatment that pervade our medical system, Money & Medicine explores promising ways to reduce health care expenditures and improve the overall quality of medical care.

"The Affordable Care Act that the Supreme Court recently upheld extends health care coverage to over 30 million uninsured Americans but actually does very little to make health care affordable."

Western intelligence agencies have made a habit of using Islamist jihadis to destabilize governments who will not allow the Rothschild bankers to control them. From Indonesia to Iran to Afghanistan to Libya and now Syria, this pattern has remained in place.

The breakaway Russian regions of Chechnya and Dagestan – from where the Tsarnaev brothers came – was no exception. If the brothers did receive terrorist training it most likely came at the hands of al Qaeda CIA assets.Ever since Russian Foreign Minister Yevgeny Primakov proposeda strategic triangle between India, Russia and China as a counterbalance to US global hegemony in 1998, US establishment think tanks have been scratching their heads at how to derail the idea. The Harvard-linked Olin Institute proposed attacking India, the weakest part of the triangle.

Not content with the Polish Solidarist-led grab of Eastern Europe and the partitioning of Soviet Central Asian republics, the CFR/Bilderberger crowd now used mujahedeen surrogates to further squeeze Russia.

In 1994, 35,000 Chechen fighters were trained at Amir Muawia camp in Afghanistan’s Khost Province – the same camp Osama bin Laden built for the CIA. In July 1994 Chechen Commander, Shamil Basayev graduated from Amir Muawia and was sent to advanced guerrilla tactics camp at Markazi-i-Dawar, Pakistan. There he met with Pakistani ISI officials, who have historically excelled at carrying out the CIA’s dirty laundry.[5] The other Chechen rebel Commander was Saudi-born Emir al-Khattab.

The Chechen Islamists took over a big chunk of the Golden Crescent heroin trade, working with Chechen crime families affiliated with the Russian Alfa Group that did business with Halliburton. They also had ties to the Albanian heroin labs being run by CIA-backed the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA).

A Russian FSB report stated that the Chechens began buying real estate in Kosovo in 1997, just prior to the US-led partition of Kosovo from Yugoslavia. Chechen Commander Emir al-Khattab set up guerrilla camps to train KLA Albanian rebels. The camps were funded by the heroin trade, prostitution rings and counterfeiting. Recruits were invited by Chechen Commander Shamil Basayev and funded by the House of Saud Muslim Brotherhood Islamic Relief Organization.[6]

On September 20, 2002, after emerging from a White House meeting on Iraq with President Bush, Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov dodged all questions regarding another round of US harassment targeting Iraq. Instead he stated that the al Qaeda-trained Chechen rebels still targeting his country were being given safe-haven by the closest US ally in Central Asia- the government of Georgia. The Four Horsemen’s strategic Baku-Tblisi-Ceyhan pipeline was to run right through the Georgian capital Tblisi.

A month later Chechen rebels strapped with explosives entered a Moscow theater, taking hundreds hostage. The timing was interesting, since the Russians were refusing to go along with Bush’s plans to invade Iraq. Nearly 200 people died after Russian Special Forces stormed in to overtake the Chechens. The US news media, fixated on al Qaeda’s every move just months earlier, ignored the link between the Chechens and their bin Laden-led cohorts. Instead they blamed the Russians.

A week after the incident Chechen warlord Shamil Basayev claimed responsibility for the siege on a rebel website.[7] Kremlin officials saw Basayev’s comments as a smokescreen to protect Chechnya’s elected leader Aslan Maskhadov, who was on his way to Sweden to take part in a conference on Chechnya. Basayev was killed in Ingushetia in July 2006.

Wow, you retardicans are getting worse by the day; do you just make this stuff up in your head or do you get it from WorldNutDaily? You and the rest of your merry band of morans make utter fools of yourself daily.
Here's a little blast from the past to refresh your memory:
Remarks at the American University in Cairo
Secretary Condoleezza Rice
Cairo, Egypt
June 20, 2005
In this time of great decision, I have come to Cairo not to talk about the past, but to look to the future -- to a future that Egyptians can lead and can define. Ladies and Gentlemen: In our world today, a growing number of men and women are securing their liberty. And as these people gain the power to choose, they are creating democratic governments in order to protect their natural rights.
We should all look to a future when every government respects the will of its citizens -- because the ideal of democracy is universal. For 60 years, my country, the United States, pursued stability at the expense of democracy in this region here in the Middle East -- and we achieved neither. Now, we are taking a different course. We are supporting the democratic aspirations of all people.
As President Bush said in his Second Inaugural Address: "America will not impose our style of government on the unwilling. Our goal instead is to help others find their own voice, to attain their own freedom, and to make their own way."
We know these advances will not come easily, or all at once. We know that different societies will find forms of democracy that work for them. When we talk about democracy, though, we are referring to governments that protect certain basic rights for all their citizens -- among these, the right to speak freely. The right to associate. The right to worship as you wish. The freedom to educate your children -- boys and girls. And freedom from the midnight knock of the secret police.
