    Another good foreign policy move on Obama's part. Maybe Romney should put Obama on as the VP on his ticket.
  3. He announced he was closing Gitmo 3 years ago too.

  5. Obama is fulfilling the terms of the US - Iraqi draw down agreement that was negotiated under the Bush administration.

    Oh he'll take credit for it anyway thank you very much.
  8. Yes, and the misfits protesting in Zuccotti park will celebrate by not taking a shower for another week.
  9. Do people still actually believe politicians? This what going to be a short conflict back in 2003. Here we are 8+ years later, same old spin going into each re-election campaign.

    Obama is campaigning. Plain and simple.
  10. How many taxpayer funded contractors will remain?
