    Bush had his eye on the bigger picture while Obama was all about photo ops, and still is.

    It's always amusing to hear from the 28% who still support Obama and Joe Biden.
    That's funny if you seek to include me in that. I think Obama has continued the US scorched earth policy of support for militant Islamists and the destabilization of the ME. That's partisan lefties that still support Obama. Just like you were in the fraction that still supported Bush after 6 or 7 years in the WH.

    Compared with the Middle East of today, only a paralyzed patron would miss that.

    You seemed to be supporting the notion of "pre-emptive actions"! Something Russia and China won't be allowing anymore.

    Why would a person who has failed to notice that the Middle East is in flames, far less stabile than it has been for decades, ask such a question?

    Through great expenditure of US blood and US treasure, both Iraq and Afghanistan had a chance at democracy, a noble gesture, but seems that this chance will have been wasted on them.
    Another arrogant and condescending American sentiment that thinks the snot nosed kid on the block can deliver western style democracy to an ancient region, with ancient conflicts. Go ahead continue to support endless US military adventures in the ME, and its accompanying loss of US life and treasure, not to mention the suffering we heap upon the citizens in the name of helping the citizens.

    I'm glad Russia has prevented the US from realizing the goal of "regime change" in Syria. We've done enough damage in the removal of Hussein, Mubarak and Gaddafi.

    Yeah, Clinton could have offed Osama, yet he chose not to. The real truth is we could have killed his evil ads numerous times, however we chose not to.

    I think the most ironic thing about Osama is that we helped his pun ads during the Afghan/Soviet war and he attacks us? If it wasn't go the US and our aid - him and his little gang would have been slaughtered in the 80's by the Soviets.

    Sure they do. I doubt that they wanted to have to intervene in Syria. But along with China, they saw that the US need to be stopped.

    Sorry for some of my weird grammar, I'm typing on my phone and that "auto spell check/correct" thing just changes words.....
