Every Vet thanks President Obama for ending the war in Iraq and bring the troops home for the holidays as the best Christmas gift anyone can give to the soldiers and their families.

We need more avowed-communists, marxists, pro-abortion, anti-free-speech, anti-gun, anti-free market, anti-business, pro-illegal, wealth redistribution and healthcare-rationing advocates, union bosses, Goldman lobbyists, and inexperienced idiots, cronies and radicals in the White House.

Surely the Kenyan lizard can hire a few more.

It is a great feeling for all of us PATRIOTIC Americans that voted for this great President… another campaign promise kept that wouldn’t have happened had McCain won in 2008… thank God the intelligent voters got a big win in 2008.

Obviously you haven't caught up on world affairs if being asked to leave is your response. The main clog in the idea of leaving troops there was not having immunity from prosecution. If you knew anything about soldiers being stationed overseas is there are agreements in place to protect troops from phony charges. If you are so keen on being there, the borders aren't blockaded. Have a nice trip.

Yeah, his explanation is “Poor people and the middle class has $100 bills coming out of every piece of clothing the way he and his elitist buddies does in that photo… surely the 99% of Americans can relate to that?

Every Vet knows they were left in Iraq with the command DON'T FIRE UNTIL FIRED UPON, causing many many many more deaths and wounded. Obama is an idiot.

I weep for the liberty of my country when I see at this early day of its successful experiment that corruption has been imputed to many members of the House of Representatives, and the rights of the people have been bartered for promises of office.

Andrew Jackson was a great man and a wonderful Democrat, what happened to that once good and brave party?
Obama would make Mr. Andrew Jackson sick to his stomach.

LOL!!! As Andrew Jackson would be about 250 years old today, even Ensure would probably make him sick to his stomach.

Besides, who is to say President Obama approves of Andrew Jackson? Mr Obama is alive in 2011, so doesn't his opinion matter more?

Much like Rome, America’s days of empire are coming to an end. America is morally and economically bankrupt. We have run fresh out of cannon fodder and have resorted to the hiring of mercenaries much like the mercenaries who broke their allegiance with Rome and sacked the country. We have outsourced our military and let the dogs of war run wild around the world in our name with murderous brutality. There is a distinct difference between the Visigoths and Blackwater USA, Blackwater is building their own military infrastructure[1] and their own air force[2]. Blackwater USA plans to be a permanent replacement to our all voluntary military and they have no problems with getting their hands dirty

To the troops who are FINALLY leaving Iraq: Welcome home, heroes!

To the conservative and liberal politicians who sent and kept them over there: PLEASE feel free to take their place! America and the world would be MUCH better off without you!

If the worst you guys have had on a campaign-fatigue then-candidate Obama is him saying 57 states you have nothing, LOL.

I know the answers to every single one of the questions that the guy was asking Obama voters, and I can easily pull up a You Tube video of McCain voters or tea-baggers at those unpatriotic rallies looking a lot dumber (and even racist) compared to those people in the video you posted.
I’m just happy that we elected, and will re-elect President Obama into the White House.

It is said ignorance is bliss. Considering how blissful you are with Obama, you must be the most ignorant voter in America.
