Compared With Bush, Obama's Defense Record Looks Real Good

Last week, Mitt Romney became the first Republican presidential nominee since 1952 to leave America’s warfighters out of his acceptance speech. He didn’t even mention the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Only days later, President Obama delivered his last weekly address before the Democratic National Convention, and took the opposite approach: the entire address was about the sacrifices made by U.S. warfighters in recent conflicts, and how much the nation owes them in return.

What explains this striking reversal of roles in the remarks of the Republican and Democratic standard-bearers? Isn’t national security supposed to be a strong point for the GOP, and a weak one for the Democrats? Not anymore. For the first time since the Vietnam War ended, Democrats have a better story to tell on defense than Republicans do.

The reason why is that Mr. Obama’s predecessor in the White House, George W. Bush, did a thoroughly incompetent job of managing the military and defending the nation. Obama’s national-security record looks much better in comparison. That isn’t a partisan assessment, it’s the way history will remember the two presidents. But it also isn’t necessarily the way voters see them today, because the press of current events tends to obscure just how bad Bush’s tenure as Commander in Chief was, and how good a job Obama has done of fixing the military problems he inherited.

So as the Democratic National Convention unfolds, let’s take a little trip down Memory Lane and recall why Republicans have little incentive to bring up the subject of defense in the presidential campaign. This isn’t just an academic exercise, because Governor Romney has embraced many of the same policies and personalities that defined the Bush defense posture. And like candidate Bush a dozen years ago, Romney probably doesn’t grasp where those policies and personalities might take the nation.

When George W. Bush was inaugurated in 2001, he inherited a nation at peace. The peace looked so durable that military leaders were projecting a “strategic pause” lasting 20 years. Bush proposed in his signature campaign speech that the Pentagon take advantage of the lull in tensions to “skip a generation of technology” in order to construct “a new architecture of American defense for decades to come.”

The $291 billion defense budget that the Clinton Administration left him amounted to only 3% of the economy. But America’s economy was so big at the end of Clinton’s presidency — 32% of global output — that the budget represented a third of worldwide military spending. America thus seemed destined to dominate the global scene for the foreseeable future.

Eight years later, as Bush prepared to leave office, U.S. military spending had ballooned to nearly half of the global total, but America’s share of economic output had fallen to less than a quarter. The nation had suffered the most traumatic attack by a foreign enemy in its history, and seven years after the event the terrorist leaders who launched that attack were still at large. America’s military had come very close to suffering defeat at the hands of ill-equipped insurgents in Iraq, and the war in Afghanistan had become the longest in U.S. history.

Some conservatives have attempted to construct a revisionist narrative of this period minimizing Bush’s responsibility for everything that went wrong. But an honest assessment of his record reveals a chronicle of fundamental mistakes that left the nation far weaker than anyone could have imagined on his inauguration day.

Just a reminder:

PolitiFact's 2012 "Lie of the Year" was Mitt Romney's claim that President Obama "sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China."

Here' PolitiFact with the falsehood's origin:

"It originated with a conservative blogger, who twisted an accurate news story into a falsehood. Then it picked up steam when the Drudge Report ran with it. Even though Jeep's parent company gave a quick and clear denial, Mitt Romney repeated it and his campaign turned it into a TV ad. And they stood by the claim, even as the media and the public expressed collective outrage against something so obviously false."

Obama did not lie. He quoted from the ACA. However, he made the assumption that people knew plans that were developed after passage of the ACA were not included. That is where he made his mistake. He should have prefaced his statement with, "If your plan was in place before passage of the ACA..." He failed to account for the dumbing down of America.

Part II, Section 1251: Preservation of right to maintain existing coverage.

(a) No changes to Existing Coverage

(1) In General - Nothing in this Act (or an Amendment made by this Act) shall be construed to require that an individual terminate coverage under a group health plan or health insurance coverage in which an individual was enrolled on the date of enactment of this Act.

The terminated plans were all created after the passage of the ACA. It is not Obama's fault that insurers did not inform their clients at the time they sold these plans that they would not be available after 2014 because they had designed a plan that did not comply with the ACA.

Now, on the otherhand, Romney deserved his award. It was an out and out LIE with no justification.

Unemployment,....improved
Economic growth....improved

Annual deficit.....cut in half.

Bush's term ended with the country in shambles. His approval was 26% when he left office.
