Bullshit again, you moron. Nobama didn't change shit, he USED Bush's policies. You keep saying that, but no proof of the changes. You're as much a pathetic liar as he is..The only thing that is infantile is the mind of the person who wrote that opinion column for Politico.
The kids on the stage was the perfect way to remind everyone that it was the killing of 20 kids that inspired this swift response for gun safety measures. And these are the same people who either have no suggestions or solutions to the obvious problems that this nation has with guns. Funny thing is there were people (mainly on the right) who criticized President Obamas change in policies, strategies and tactics back in 2009 when it came to the hunt for Osama bin Laden. They said that it would make this country less safe and it would find Bin Laden
4 years later, there hasnt been a single successful terrorist attack on American soil on Obamas watch, and Osama bin Laden sleeps with the fishes.
So proven by the landslide mandated election, We the People will go with Obama over the skeptics hes a proven winner.
Examples of Mr. Obama, now in his fourth year as president, adopting Bush-era measures:
Special operations forces. One of the first steps taken by President Bush after Sept. 11 was to revive, fund and expand special operations forces as the dog that would hunt down and kill terrorists.
President Bush also made U.S. Special Operations a war-independent command, just like U.S. Central Command, meaning it could plan and execute its own battle plans.
The U.S. Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), the Army's Delta Force and Navys SEAL Team 6 mostly had focused on hostage rescue. After Sept. 11, they started receiving the manpower and intelligence to become manhunters. Their biggest successes: Saddam Hussein; al Qaedas top Iraq terrorist, Abu Musab Zarqawi; and Osama bin Laden.
Special Ops/Intelligence. The Bush administration fused commandos with the nations intelligence agencies the CIA, the National Security Agency and the Defense Intelligence Agency into task forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.
President Bush also transferred a highly secretive military intelligence unit, which specialized in technical surveillance and intercepts, to the Joint Special Operations Command so that commandos and intelligence experts could work together directly.
Predator strikes. The Bush administration established Predator drone bases in Pakistan to strike at al Qaeda and Taliban extremists in that countrys frontier badlands, where U.S. ground troops cannot go.
These are why there have been no more attacks on USA soil...except for Fort Hood because of politically correct dems didn't want to offend that muslim.
Now, you phoney sorry excuse for an American........show us what changes were made!!
