What a great Obama: Open the floodgates, bankrupt the country, set up a one world government, enslave mankind. You can't do " fundamental transformation" much more complete than that. The final piece is to utilize fear to to root out "enemies of the State". It's like a bad movie.

More casualties in Afghanistan due to more troops in country and more aggressive tactics on the part of our forces. They took the fight to the Taliban and AQ. It's easy to keep casualties low if you do not engage the enemy.
Bush took his eyes off the fight in Afghanistan and against AQ in order to fulfill the neocon wet dream of a war of conquest in Iraq.
Iraq is much worse off for our intervention because we had no plan for what was to come after Saddam fell. We wrecked the infrastructure, dismantled the Army and left the country to be divided up along religious lines.

How many Iraqi civilians died in Bush's war? How many disappeared into CIA prisons in undisclosed locations? We will never know because Obama promised not to look backwards at Cheney/Bush's lies, malfeasance and corruption. He gave them a pass on their crimes. Shame on him. Obama should have investigated them with minute scrutiny and charged them for their crimes.
So sad you see things the way you do. obviously you have no connections to any military personnel. The increase in casulaties is not because we are engaging the enemy, it's the opposite of that. Our troops are being ordered NOT to engage and to only return fire when fired upon. Can't you see and understand what an advantage that is to the enemy? Again, why are our troops even over there? How come the liberals aren't screaming at the current administration to get our troops home, like they did against Bush when he was in office.

Maybe Iraq is a quadmire, but what's the plan in Afganistan? There is no stable government there; No adequate militarty or police force. Do you really think Afganistan is in better shape today than it was twelve years ago? Obama promised to end the conflict. Why don't you libs hold him accountable to that? If you think Bush/Cheney committed crimes, then obama is just as guilty! How about the detainees? What has obama done about them in 3 1/2 years? Are they still detainees? YES! In guantonamo? YES! Any trials to bring them to justice? NO! I'll say obama is just as guilty for doing nothing!

Nebraska votes R. It's a R state. Romney doesn't have a secret agenda to suck up all the money and give it to the rich. Stop your class warfare, worry about all the tweekers where you live. Will Obama give free meth to get the Hawaii vote?

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better”.~ Senator Barack H. Obama – March, 2006.

I love this quote. Show what a hypocite obama really is.

And Now, A Word From Bubba

“So summarize the campaign, it's Obama campaign saying,‘Mitt Romney will lay off your dad, kill your mother with cancer, deny your sister contraceptives, throw your son out of college, and if you're African-American, put y'all in chains.’ They say,‘Are we going negative? No, no, we are talking about issues. You know, he was talking about Dodd-Frank and implementation of regulations on Wall Street in talking about chains.’ This is preposterous.”

The debt celing has been raised many many times.
Kennedy 4 times, for a 5% increase
Johnson 7 times for 18%
Nixon 9 times for 36%
Ford 5 times for 41%
Carter 9 for 59%
Reagan 18 times for 199%
H W Bush 9 times for 48%
Clinton 4 times for 44%
G W Bush 7 times for 90%
Obama 3 times for 26%
Congress actually raises the celing, not the president. Im just pointing out, that Obama is not the only prez to have the celing upped many times.

I agree. But Obama has been the most critical & vocal of raising the debt ceiling when it came to the past administration (bush). Only now when he is sitting in the big boys chair does he have a different view of the debt ceiling. Why is that?
Obama is just a typical hypocrite!

They raise the ceiling to cover checks already written by Congress, not to fund new presidential programs. There have always been symbolic votes against raising the debt ceiling. A way to send some sort of message, knowing that the measure would pass with support from both sides.
No president has ever faced a party that votes in lockstep against raising the ceiling, knowing that their failure to be responsible legislators cost our nation the downgrading of our bond rating and further erosion of an already weak economy. All of this not to send a message but simply to follow McConnell's orders that GOP's job#1 is to defeat Obama. At any cost. No matter who gets hurt. They should be impeached.

LOL.....typical liberal jiberish blaming the republicans. For you dems, it's always someones elses fault. I'm so tired of hearing this from Obama. That's why I view him as a whiner & a failure and not a leader. Obama's remarks in 2006 were pointed and meant to hurt Bush & the country. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, obama changes his tune. Pretty much defines what a hypocrite is!

Also, you say Mconnell & the GOP are out against Obama. Then explain to me why not even a single democrat voted for obama's budgets the past two years? Sound like the dems are out to defeat him as well. A leader as bad as obama should be defeated. America deserves and needs a better president.

But you have nothing to prove it. You're the perfect tool for Obama. He needs useful idiots like yourself.
