Don't worry, it looks like Obama is now getting ready for his war in the Mid-East. Every President since Carter has had to engage in military action there. So now the real world has come to the white house. This is an example of why Ogama was, is, and always will be unqualified for the job do to lack of real world experience. No putting that toothpaste back in the tube.

Hey, SC - What "experience" was it that caused GWB to join in with Cheney & Co. in promoting a hugely wasteful and unnecessary war against a country that had no connection to anyone who had attacked US? Was it the experience of not finding oil or the experience of being front man for a baseball team? Perhaps it was the experience of signing death warrants put in front of him by his sidekick, Mr. Gonzales, the Texas AG.

BO killed OBL?

nope. it was a navy seal team, which BO exposed trying to grab political points, to their mortal danger.

we found OBL using bush's methods. BO knew where OBL was for 6 months before he mustered the courage to order him taken out, then he left our main source in verifying it was OBL out to dry. The Pakistani doctor is now sitting in a cell for 33 years because even though the raid on OBL was successful, BO bungled just about everything else associated with it.

hypocrisy defending BO knows no bounds.

there was NO surplus under clinton. never was. please stop repeating the lie. gross federal debt increased each year under slick. the budget came closest to being in balance when slick had a repub congress. bush never ran an $11 trillion deficit. accumulated debt for ALL TIME reached that level, but no single deficit. BO's deficits were worst when he had a dem congress and BO's deficits have been worse than anything bush ever dreamed of. BO ran up more debt in 3-1/2 years than bush did in 8! that's the truth liberals want to distract you from. Hypocrisy indeed!

I sent a response but for some reason DN spiked it. They do that sometimes, and not because of foul language or insults. Sometimes I think the readers who clear these posts don't like what they read and don't allow it to get through. Anyway, my response to you was largely a criticism of Bush and his war policies. Even though I don't like Obama, it doesn't mean I liked Bushs' useless wars either. I'll be interested to see if this one gets through, as others I have posted today have.

Things look different? From an Ivy League graduate?

What classification for benefits, did Obama have for college expenses? What were his grades?

@ Bungalow:

Every single budgetary year under Obama has had a higher federal deficit than Bush's largest (worst) deficit. While still a senator, Obama harshly criticized Bush for having a half trillion dollar deficit (Bush's highest)... saying that it was utterly immoral to pass on such a unbelievably large deficit to our children.
Then, since becomeing president, Obama's federal deficits have averaged over twice as much as Bush's highest. That is hypocrisy to the Nth degree.

2 weeks ago, an ABC reporter randomly asked a dozen Obama voters on the street to name just one domestic issue or policy that Obama has accomplished since taking office. It was humorous to watch many of them stutter, but not be able to name one... not even a single positive accomplishment could any of them name. Besides being somewhat humorous, it was also very sad.

Unless something unforeseen happens during the last few years of Obama's presidency, then the legacy he will leave will not be very positive at all. In fact, it will be downright dismal! A decade from now, few people will ever admit voting for him.
