    Military historians will write that G.W. Bush was a good wartime President. But being a good war time president doesn't mean that the right tactics or strategy were used. More with earning the respect of the troops who serve under your command and giving a **** about the troops.

    During the Iraq war and the first eight years of the war in Afghanistan there were complaints about PC rules of engagement. But Obama went completely berserk on politically correct rules of engagement. And Bush didn't use the military for social engineering.

    If you look at Military Times yearly polling of the troops, Obama's highest approval rating was in the first month in office in 2009 and it was 10% lower than the lowest approval rating Bush ever had. It's been completely down hill for Obama ever since. I think he's in the teens now.
    Obama lost respect by the troops and never tried to earn the respect of the troops.

    Bush was just following the law that President Clinton signed into law, the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998.

    But some of the Democrats didn't want to uphold the law that Clinton signed into law, remember ?

    So they (Bush administration) went with the WMD route knowing that libs were still scared with Muslims having WMD's.

    Bush 43 went to war with Clinton's military like Bush 41 went to war with Reagan's military.

    Remember Sec. Rumsfeld response was about the body armor ? I believe the words were "You go to war with the military you have." That was Clinton's military.

    I feel sorry for the next CnC who ever it will be with what is left of our military. Obama is still in office and it's already his military. Nothing to laugh about.

    If one is an anti gun, rich hating far left socialist that despises our military, I suspect I can see that position.

    His Justices are far more intellectually capable than Clinton's and CLinton's are more respected than Obama's

    Yea he followed the law. Good for him. But what were the two main reasonings on why we invaded the county? WMDS (FALSE), and CONNECTIONS TO AL-QAEDA (FALSE). Wow what a good "war time president" get your country involved in a war (or conflict whatever rhetoric you want to use) based off false reasoning!
