You're running from the question. If I'm a loser and I'm doing fantastic with no complaints, what is it that makes you a winner if you're here until 4 P.M. everyday whining and complaining about how Obama is making your life miserable?

Yes, it is true that there was no Al Qaeda in Iraq when George W. Bush took office. But it is equally true that there was essentially no Al Qaeda in Iraq remaining when Barack Obama took office.

Which makes Bush responsible for the terrible costs incurred to defeat the 2003-09 jihadist war engendered by his invasion. We can debate forever whether those costs were worth it, but what is not debatable is Obama’s responsibility for the return of the Islamist insurgency that had been routed by the time he became President.

By 2009, Al Qaeda in Iraq had not just been decimated but humiliated by the American surge and the Anbar Awakening. Here were aggrieved Sunnis, having ferociously fought the Americans who had overthrown 80 years of Sunni hegemony, now reversing allegiance and joining the infidel invader in crushing, indeed extirpating from Iraq, their fellow Sunnis of Al Qaeda.

At the same time, Shiite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki turned the Iraqi army against radical Shiite militias from Basra all the way north to Baghdad.

The result?“A sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq.” That’s not Bush congratulating himself. That’s Obama in December 2011 describing the Iraq we were leaving behind. He called it “an extraordinary achievement.”

Which Obama proceeded to throw away. David Petraeus had won the war. Obama’s one task was to conclude a status-of-forces agreement (SOFA) to solidify the gains. By Obama’s own admission — in the case he’s now making for a status-of-forces agreement with Afghanistan — such agreements are necessary “because after all the sacrifices we’ve made, we want to preserve the gains” achieved by war.

Since you still appear to have reading comprehension issues. I stated that they were the primary recipients not that they were all recipients.
Just admit it you are dumber than we think.

The truth is there is now a civil rights suit against the liberal DA. ROTFLMAO-on a countersuit--the original Case against Walker as been closed. Now the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is on the verge of being sued also for libel. It just keeps getting better for the liberals. Sue them all-the democrat party is a bunch of scum-pond scum.
Flim Flam Scootin' Scam. Liberals. Democrats got kicked in the teeth and now we are going for kicking them in the gums.(teeth gone).

I wonder if Obama will eventually move from a top 15 president to a top 10 president as the years pass? Thoughts?
The majority are struggling to believe he's trustworthy and competent now. Even Democrats are losing hope. History will write his legacy after ObamaCare goes into full swing. Or if America, God forbid, is attacked again.

However, no one wants him to go down in history as being that president.
