    What did Bush do that Obama didn't either continue, or double down on?

    Obama could have negotiated a Status of forces agreement instead of pulling every last remnant of US Military assets out of Iraq. It was his most foolish foreign policy decision yet and that's saying something.

    yes, he wanted to leave troops in Iraq despite the agreement that had been made. In retrospect, he probably should have.

    His naivete is perpetuated by a generic hatred of this Country and a deep and unnatural obsession with our last President.

    I don't think there was ever any doubt that you'd disagree with anything less then military intervention in the ME. but you asked me for specifics, and you got some.

    Oh really ??

    " Saturday, at his impromptu press confrence before leaving for a family vacation on Martha’s Vineyard, President Barack Obama claimed that no U.S. troops were left in Iraq to help keep the peace because Iraq’s refusal to sign a status of forces agreement.

    In October 2012 during the presidential debate, GOP candidate former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) pushed the president on his decision to remove all troops.

    Romney said, “There should have been a status of forces agreement,” Obama replied, “That’s not true, no.”

    Obama added, “What I would not have done is left 10,000 Troops in Iraq that would tie us down.”

    It would seem he never had any intention of negotiating a status forces agreement
