Redneck idiots were blaming him for the debt even before he officially went into office lol
Wrong. We are blaming him for the near 10 Trillion debt he added AFTER he officially took office. That's more than all the presidents combined before him!
That is just too much. Let ud pray the new one will bring it down.
Yep! His actions in Iraq and then his attitude that ISIS was a JV team! Oh, wait, he blamed the intelligence he received as being flawed ---- from the same intelligence agencies that claim Russia is behind Trump's win and did all the hacking.
ISIS was active in Iraq long before Obama became the president.
//ISIL has its origins in the Iraq War of 2003–11. Al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), its direct precursor, was one of the central actors in a larger Sunni insurgency against the Iraqi government and foreign occupying forces. //
In 2003 Rumsfeld called them "pockets of dead-enders". Two years later, Chaney said,
The level of activity that we see today from a military standpoint, I think, will clearly decline. I think they're in the last throes, if you will, of the insurgency.
And when Obama took power and surrendered, ISIS filled the voids and grew in strength.
I don't disagree with that, but eventually we had to pull out. You know, "Peace with Honor".
We had to pull out? Had to?
Why did we have to pull out Phil? Was it because Obama had foolishly announced his intentions to leave? Or, was it more because he was drawing red lines in the sands of Syria which were ignored and so this very day the dwindling numbers of people in Aleppo are dying.
Yea Obama! Your legacy of failure endures!
Obama's failure to act has led to the demise of the rebels in Syria. They have no chance without outside help. As is usually the case, the civilians suffer terribly.
I say we had to pull out of Iraq because we could not afford to occupy a country half way around the world indefinitely.
No, of course not. That why the military should have restraints removed and allow them to kill people and break things. It could have been wrapped up long ago.
Another military strategy tip Obama failed with was telling the enemy what we were going to do. An 8 year old plying Battleship knows that much!
Exactly. That's what Bush did, ran us into debt and left a mess for Obama to sort out. And Obama has done a great job.
Not ALL the debt. When Obama took office debt was at 10.6 Trillion Dollars, now it's almost $20 Trillion - so about half of the debt on Obama's watch.
It is the neverending strategy of conservative republicans to blame all of everything bad on democrats. They also take credit fir all of everything good for themselves. Saving the auto industry, creating millions of jobs, getting people with no chance at healthcare insured (wirh admittable flaws), stopping bin ladin, expanding rights to lgbtq community, etc. And funding war that is not winnable is expensive. How much would viet nam have costed in todays dollars? Another unwinnable war. Im not a fan of interveaning in other nations squabbles. Obama started nothing. He finished tho. I am a fan of assisting people who are displaced and in mortal danger through no fault of their own. People have short memories and are mesmerized by shiny objects.
