I don't understand, according to the progressives,Obama is brilliant at foreign policy. Well he can just do what he usually does - send them a bunch of our tax dollars, you know, the free money.

As usual, the unpatriotic tea-baggers relish any opportunity to attack this country and our President but (as usual) is ignorant to the fact, the history or the situation of what they are attacking the President on.

This whole mess in the in Iraq (in the Middle East) would not be happening had George W. Bush not lied this nation into attacking Iraq. There was no Al Qaeda in Iraq before Bush broke that country. The Iraqi Parliament voted to have US forces leave and they vote to have our troops tried in there courts for any “crimes” on Iraqi soil. The ISIS takeover/invasion of northern Iraq is supported by the Shiite who harbors resentment to the Sunnis for years of rule by Saddam Hussein.

But as usual, you idiots think that bombs and guns will solve the problem when it was bombs and guns that created it.
President Obama was elected twice to fix the mess that Bush created and part of that mess was getting us out of Iraq.

You lost… get over it and STFU; the adults are in charge now.

Obama will go down as the president that lost Iraq, raised fuel prices and helped the Taliban.
.
And those are his better achievements..
.
Obama is one big embarrassment for the black movement.
.
Prretty soon they are going to say, "But he's really White. He ain't black."
.
That would be half true anyway.
.
Bottom line...He's a democrat. Nothing is worse than that.

The terrorists best friend in the world is presidunce obuma.

Don`t be surprised to see after all of Iraq falls that the Islamists put up a statue of obuma in the central square in Bagdad honoring him for being the biggest asset to radical muslims worldwide.

Make NO mistake Afganistan will follow suit after were gone.

BOTH Bush and obama are responsible for lost American lives and the depletion of the U.S.Treasury for 2 wars that NEVER should have taken place.

Religous muslim zelots will never be beaten by outsiders, their defeat can only come from within. We should have learned that from the defeat of Russians by Taliban and others.

All the above and the rest of the pain and corruption obuma has caused the American people and the good people in other countries who have suffered death and destruction from obuma`s policies,

Then domestic policies: Fast & Furious, IRS, Benghazi, VA, just to name a few are causing division in American society.
This is OBAMAS legacy

Bush will go down in history as the president who started the war in Iraq looking for WMDs that never existed, the president who holds the record even today as having the highest fuel prices ever, and as the president who had Bin Laden in his grasp but let him escape.

That and being the worst president in 80 years.

Obama is the most inept, incompetent person in our history to pretend to be President. He was never ready for the job, and he never will be ready. He is a dunce.

No, Obama has used the Presidency exactly as he said he would... when the chips are down, he sides with the Muslims. Every gain in the war on terror has been reversed by his policies. Christians and people of good will are being slaughtered by those Obama has put back in power. His crimes against humanity are not limited to the incredible number of abortions under his watch, but his global warming mania has continued to keep Africa in the dark and suffering poverty inexcusable in the 21st Century. His funding of anarchist elements in Libya pale in comparison to the incendiary bombs he's approving and funding, dropped on women and children in Eastern Ukraine for the old Clinton concept of "for psychological affect." Whenever Bolshevik and Maoist Democrats control the country, humanity is set back to the Dark Ages.

They always have the perpetual 'Bush did it' excuse. It's been their number one for 5 years. Besides, holding Obama responsible for his own administration would be, well it would just be racist.
