Who said Obama failed?

If failure is to remove CW from Syria while potentially bringing a war to an end without empowering extremists like al Qaeda and helping to usher in an evolution rather than a revolution in government with its inevitable chaos to follow, then I don't want to hear what success is. We've ushered in too many of those already.

Yes, the war mongers fail to see that bombing Syria and weakening Assad would have just allowed those AlQaeda extremists to grab the chemical WMDs! Then the US would need to put 80,000 "boots on the ground" just to secure them.

Record numbers of Americans on Food Stamps. Iraq now second most violent place on earth. Bin Laden gone, AlQaeda growing and now committing terrorist acts all over the earth! DOW, pumped up by Ben Shalom printing money. US automakers still haven't payed America back and pumped up by 8 year loans. Corporate layoffs, college grads working part time minimum wage jobs! Stop drinking the Obama Kool Aid, like the rest of you liberal clowns!

Well said, it is the first time since JFK (Kennedy carefully avoided humiliating Khrushchev) that a US President chose to avert a violent confrontation by means of diplomacy. Not only that, but Obama's foresight to open a dialogue with Iran's leader for the first time since 1950s. The attempt by the right and the press, we might add, to describe Obama as week is complete bunk!

More Americans on food stamps simply because the republitards and "right-to-work for less have kept wages stagnant.

If you work 40 hours making minimum wage you are still below the federal poverty level and eligible for food stamps.

Iraq, Libya not our concern anymore.

Benghazi - republitard MYTH over a year and not one accusation help up.

Auto industry took out long term LOANS they aren't required to be re payed all at once....yet still showing RECORD PROFITS

Corporate America - RECORD PROFITS - Why aren't they hiring...run by republitards.

Facts trump paranoia every time junior.

More Americans on Food Stamps because their jobs have gone overseas, and Obamacare is creating a part time American work force! Iraq and Libya now breeding grounds of Islamic extremists and AlQaeda terrorists! After a year and Obama still can't come clean about Benghazi! Corporate record profits created by layoffs, and their new part time work force! Reality trumps Kool Aid every time, pee wee.

...and why have jobs gone overseas? CORPORATE GREED!

Profit is not enough anymore, Obscene profit must be adhered to at all costs. Bow down and kiss your corporate god's ass if you like and keep drinking their kool aid. They found their village idiot.

1 year later...EVERY CLAIM about Benghazi was debunked. EVERY ONE!!!

And yet the Republicans in Congress continue pass a bill that they know will not pass instead of addressing Americans who are starving and in need of employment.

Guess who's job that is, antisemite?
