Take the last two president in the modern era you bring up. Here we have a president that condemned Bush for his wars abroad, and promised to bring them home ASAP. Not only did he not do it, he started another war in Libya and continued the ones he once condemned. As for Nixon, Obama now does legally what Nixon did illegally, which is have access to people ...[text shortened]... Now if you will excuse me, time for more movie titles.
asap = not now
yes, he promised to end the wars. and when confronted with the actual crphole the bush dug, he understood it wasn't that easy.
he promised to close guantanamo. when he actually saw the problem up close and the lack of options, understood that isn't so easy as well.
"Obama now does legally what Nixon did illegally, which is have access to peoples personal information via the NSA"
fukin incredible. you are whining about obama using a law that bush implemented.
"the war in libya"
lasted from march till october, and it was a joint operation of nineteen states trying to stablize a region crucial for the economy of the entire region. it was hardly started by obama, and hardly was on the same scale as the wars in iraq and afghanistan.
"for now it is perhaps the worst it has ever been in US history."
seriously? you say that with a straight face and no worry you will appear ignorant? bush started the war in iraw by lying sadam had al-quaeda ties and weapons of mass destruction. nobody found either. obama said he will end the war asap, and realized it might take a while after all. do you find the two comparable?
do you enjoy being a joke on this site?
