Is Obama a good leader/president? Heck No and all those morons who voted for him, I'm here to tell you I told you so!

Would Romney have been better? Heck no! He was a poster child for Greed.

Will the next candidates be better? Depends on who it is I guess.

Personally I think half of you are idiots, coming on here every day and trashing liberals, coming on here and trashing conservatives...yeah because neither side of that line has every committed a 'crime' in office right? C'mon now, the only way you'll get what you want is when both sides learn to compromise and meet in the middle, work together. Sadly it'll never happen, too much greed on the line. Personally I don't consider myself a Liberal or a Conservative. Personally I consider myself a free thinker who makes decisions for himself not a Politial Robot tied to a Party Affiliation.

I'm so tired of hearing about a lack of outrage from Obama on how many troops are dying overseas. George Bush, a friggin' Republican, is the A**hole that put them there in the first place because of his "Personal Agenda" War that was based on ZERO evidence.

Sham: We could have easily been outta Afghanistan, by now, if we hadn't spent so-much-time burning-out the troops we HAD, on repeated-deployments!!!!!

Funny you should mention the taxing of our military seeing as Obama plans to reduce the Army and the Marines by roughly 50,000 starting in 2015. This administrations current and planned defense cuts are negatively affecting the readiness of our nations military. Will you make this same statement in the future when a conflict arises and our troops are stretched dangerously thin because of decisions of this administration? Training and scheduled maintenance of weapons platforms are already suffering as a result of the planned massive cuts and even as a retired veteran, I also am feeling the pain of this administrations decisions.

Libya is Obama's illegal war.

No authorization from Congress, none asked for.

No compliance with the War Powers Act by Obama.

No feelings for the dead US Ambassador and three other Americans who begged President Obama for help over a seven hour period until they were finally overwhelmed by our enemies and murdered.

Steeler- Don't you remember? Bush personally planted explosives in the Towers and then photo-shopped all the video to make it look like planes (or missiles) struck them. And I'm sure Bush blackmailed Obama to keep the war going so there would be more causalities. And Sham, Reeder, Rick, et. al. would love to believe all this." - JohnZook

I can't speak for anyone-else, but...I'm not paranoid-enough to (even) consider such fairy-tales. I WILL give you T-Baggers points for dreaming-UP such fantastical-"possibilities", though.

Incorrect.

Lil' Dumbya was gettin' busted for taking-his-eye OFF Afghanistan...and, sacrificing our troops on his War-of-CHOICE, in Iraq.

We could have easily been outta Afghanistan, by now, if we hadn't spent so-much-time burning-out the troops we HAD, on repeated-deployments!!!!!

Fox News has the opportunity to continue the count of dead soldiers, but they would rather show the clock with the national debt numbers incrementing upward. I guess conservatives feel the almighty dollar is more important than our soldiers being killed..

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that the current administration is getting a free pass on the number of casualties in Afghanistan that the last administration was constantly called out on a daily basis.

Assuming your numbers are correct (highly-unlikely), that'd be a direct-result o' BU$HCO being "somewhat" disengaged, in Afghanistan.

First of all, before we start throwing around Obama, Republican this, Democrat that, Conservative this, Liberal that...keep something in mind. It was a Republican that sent our soldiers there and a Democrat who kept them there. So both parties are whole heartedly at fault.

I agree with the LTE, it's long passed the time to bring our Troops home. I cannot truly express in words how sad I feel for the families who continue to have to salute their returning heroes as their carried off of a plane in a casket. I can't imagine the grief and pain that they must be going through. I've been fortunate to not have to feel that pain, however we all know, many are much less fortunate.

As for the whole "Obama's illegal War" bit..this war that is continuing started because of George W. Bush, not Obama, so if it's anyone's war it's a continuation of Bush's War.

"Obama's illegal war"

--

Hold on there cowboy. Are you giving Congress pass? When Tom Marino visits the High School tomorrow, ask him why he thinks tracking food stamp purchases is more important that declaring an act of War in Libya.

"We had four Americans killed in Benghazi, Libya, Obama's illegal war..." - eriklatranyi

Ah, yes...the great Libyan War.

You'd expect those people would show a little gratitude...as direct "beneficiaries" of "compassionate-conservatism"!!!!

We had four Americans killed in Benghazi, Libya, Obama's illegal war, and then his administration lied about the cause of the attack for weeks.

For seven hours, a US Ambassador pleaded for help from President Obama. Nearby special forces (in Tripoli) were told to "stand down".

The Ambassador was beaten, murdered and sodomized. Then, his body was dragged through the streets.

President Obama has the US involved in Libya, Syria, Uganda and other African countries with no authorization from Congress nor any explanation to the American people.
