  •  Bush sent thousands of boots on (0+ / 0-)

    the ground to die. Obama has kept America safe and reduced our military casualties every year. That's a pretty good track record.

      Actually that only proves that Obama has a better track record than Bush. A rather low standard. That doesn't prove he has a good one.
         Compared to Clinton's record, Obama has a poor track record.

      •  Really? I thought that Obama (0+ / 0-)

        killed bin Laden, and Clinton missed his opportunity. Obama has been the best foreign policy president we've had in 50 years.

          Clinton didn't get us into any wars until the very end (a poor decision), and that conflict didn't have a single American casualty.

            Clinton nealy managed to bring Isreal and Palestine to a permanent peace.

            Clinton was respected by foreign leaders around the world for his diplomatic skills.

           Personally I judge a president's foreign policy skills by his ability to avoid American's being killed and a lack of wars. Not by large body counts.

          Obama has the CIA and JSOC in between 75-125 countries now.
          He is building a huge drone base in Africa.
          He has a fucking kill list and has assasinated 3 US citizens without due process.
          He has dropped more bombs by drones in his first 3 months then Bush did during 8 years.
          Over 4,500 innocent people have died from his bombs.
          He has reneged on bringing troops home from Afghanistan and is keeping then there for another 10 years.
          I guess you missed the Boston bombing that happened on Obama's watch even after he was warned.
          Somalia, Yemen, Pakistan and other countries would disagree with your pronouncement that he has been the best on foreign policy.
          Wake up!  
          See the real facts, not the ones you believe in.

          Passing a law that the Constitution doesn't allow does not negate the Constitution, it negates the law that was passed. Secret courts can't make up secret laws. SORRY FOR THE TYPOS :)
