So you call what bushie boy left behind an 'opportunity'?!?!?!?!?
I love reich wing stupidity!!!!
This is a prime example of how a Leftist thinks! The left had the White House, the Senate and the House, not to mention the ear of the Supreme Court. And even more importantly, a country of mindless drones behind them, envisioning change. The "opportunity" was there for anything to be passed but the left still failed! Just the fact that leftists celebrate the lies and failures of bo's administration reveals their true ideology. Keep polishing bo's turds leftists......they're bound to come clean soon!

Well, when one starts a war with them, one is very likely to lose land. Returning Gaza to the Palestinians is a test case for keeping the west bank. It becomes a security concern.

Maybe they aren't equal. Israeli inventions and discoveries.

I blame anyone who voted to elect an inexperienced community organizer, an admitted Marxist with ties to radical and militant leftists.
I agree that after the mid-term elections, Obama will spend his last two years implementing as much of his left wing agenda as possible.
But Mr. perfection doesn't blame W Bush an AWOL Deserter that had been a total failure at every endeavor that he ever tried? Or Dick Cheney a weaselly coward that was too busy to serve his nation? That destroyed every thing that the two of them touched for eight years..Along with sacrificing 4,500 our our finest based on proven lies.You seem to be the one with the warped perceptions there crazy RAY.

Video of Violent, Rioting Surfers Shows White Culture of Lawlessness
....as an American of color who considers himself an ally to the white community, I'm just tired of seeing young, belligerent white people disgrace themselves year after year at surfing events, horse racing infields, and Ivy League campuses. Whites in America have been out from under their European ancestors' boot heels for centuries; California specifically outlawed preferences for nonwhites in state hiring and education nearly two decades ago. So being "oppressed" is no longer an excuse for behavior like this. How long must we wait for the white community to get its act together?

and if you want we can talk about those mass shootings you white folks love to perpetuate in either performing or allowing.

America’s Secret War in 134 Countries
The deployment of US Special Operations forces is a growing form of overseas power projection.

They operate in the green glow of night vision in Southwest Asia and stalk through the jungles of South America. They snatch men from their homes in the Maghreb and shoot it out with heavily armed militants in the Horn of Africa. They feel the salty spray while skimming over the tops of waves from the turquoise Caribbean to the deep blue Pacific. They conduct missions in the oppressive heat of Middle Eastern deserts and the deep freeze of Scandinavia. All over the planet, the Obama administration is waging a secret war whose full extent has never been fully revealed—until now.

Since September 11, 2001, US Special Operations forces have grown in every conceivable way, from their numbers to their budget. Most telling, however, has been the exponential rise in special ops deployments globally. This presence—now, in nearly 70 percent of the world’s nations—provides new evidence of the size and scope of a secret war being waged from Latin America to the backlands of Afghanistan, from training missions with African allies to information operations launched in cyberspace.

In the waning days of the Bush presidency, Special Operations forces were reportedly deployed in about sixty countries around the world. By 2010, that number had swelled to seventy-five, according to Karen DeYoung and Greg Jaffe of The Washington Post. In 2011, Special Operations Command (SOCOM) spokesman Colonel Tim Nye told TomDispatch that the total would reach 120. Today, that figure has risen higher still.

In 2013, elite US forces were deployed in 134 countries around the globe, according to Major Matthew Robert Bockholt of SOCOM Public Affairs. This 123 percent increase during the Obama years demonstrates how, in addition to conventional wars and a CIA drone campaign, public diplomacy and extensive electronic spying, the US has engaged in still another significant and growing form of overseas power projection. Conducted largely in the shadows by America’s most elite troops, the vast majority of these missions take place far from prying eyes, media scrutiny, or any type of outside oversight, increasing the chances of unforeseen blowback and catastrophic consequences.

You're right. The IRS selectively targeting political groups who opposed the radical liberals in power didn't happen until Obama and his crew gave them the nod to go ahead....
...THAT'S when MSNBC, ABC, CBS and NBC ignored it.
They never ignore the slightest hint of corruption under a Republican administration...even a "smidgeon of corruption".
A long time ago I watched how the future Democratic leadership (the hippies) acted, how they used the word "authority" like it was an inhuman concept, and even back then, over 40 years ago, I came to this conclusion: The only authority they didn't like was the authority they didn't have. I recognized them as Eichman wannabes then. I think they have proven my assessment to be correct.

Growth Industry

Formally established in 1987, Special Operations Command has grown steadily in the post-9/11 era. SOCOM is reportedly on track to reach 72,000 personnel in 2014, up from 33,000 in 2001. Funding for the command has also jumped exponentially as its baseline budget,$2.3 billion in 2001, hit $6.9 billion in 2013 ($10.4 billion, if you add in supplemental funding). Personnel deployments abroad have skyrocketed, too, from 4,900 “man-years” in 2001 to 11,500 in 2013.

A recent investigation by TomDispatch, using open source government documents and news releases as well as press reports, found evidence that US Special Operations forces were deployed in or involved with the militaries of 106 nations around the world in 2012–13. For more than a month during the preparation of that article, however, SOCOM failed to provide accurate statistics on the total number of countries to which special operators—Green Berets and Rangers, Navy SEALs and Delta Force commandos, specialized helicopter crews, boat teams and civil affairs personnel—were deployed.“We don’t just keep it on hand,” SOCOM’s Bockholt explained in a telephone interview once the article had been filed.“We have to go searching through stuff. It takes a long time to do that.” Hours later, just prior to publication, he provided an answer to a question I first asked in November of last year.“SOF [Special Operations forces] were deployed to 134 countries” during fiscal year 2013, Bockholt explained in an email.

Obama's parents were never legally married, hence Obama was and is a bastard....for more reasons than one...

but that is really irrelevant compared to a world that is disintegrating because of Obama's gross incompetence....
