I can't understand why american people first wanted a change for the better, and when Obama does what everyone is hoping him to do (and as far as I know he's done a lot of good things changing things for the better), but it's all wrong or not good for the americans. And it's only some 35 000 soldiers left there, maybe he was adviced to leave some behind. Even when as a president, you can't do just whatever you want. But I like your art anyways
Could you please list the "good things " Obama has done. Because as far as I can see, the only thing he has accomplished is create record deficits for years to come and dumping trillions of dollars in debt on the next generation in the first year of his term.
Wasn't it Bush who in the first place made such a mess of the USA economy and took loans for warfare? Obama is trying to fix all that (as far as I can tell), and I have heard that he is trying to change the healthcare-situation for the better, and also he is shutting down the Guantanamo-prison. As far as I can tell, he's trying to fix things and be more diplomatic. Of course I can't be absolutely certain that he is on the side of the common folk, and wants peace for the world, but I am still hopeful.
The economic mess we are in is a result of Democrats pushing through a bill that forced banks to give loans to people so they can buy houses, even though they could not afford those houses and had little or no credit. This happened in the late 70s and late 90s. Another reason is decades of deregulation by Republicans that led to exploitation of the market by big business. Both parties are to blame, but Bush is not solely responsible.
A few things I would like to ask you.
1. What is there to gain from closing down Guantanamo Bay? Where are we going to put all those terrorists, especially high-ranking ones like Khalid Sheik Mohammed?
2. How is nationalized healthcare (waiting months for simple things like MRIs, paying higher taxes to fund government-run health care, and the Feds choosing your doctors for you) a good thing?
Yeah, well I guess that's a problem in many countries now (including mine).
I understood that there's not only terrorists there, but also people who are only suspected to be involved in terrorism.
It's a system that works in many countries quite well. In my country it's quite good system too. I am more than happy to pay for it, because I and everyone else benefits from it a lot. I have the impression that because not everyone in USA can afford to pay the medical bills or not everyone has a health-insurance, they just hope that they wouldn't get sick. And I have heard that a disease like cancer can become so expensive, that people suffer more from just trying to pay their bills and have enough money to live, than they would suffer from their disease. I think american-people have for some reason quite bad image about that health care system that works more better for the common folk. Of course the wealthy wouldn't have any problems with expensive bills.
China has staged celebrations of a Tibetan holiday to try and fool the world into thinking it's people are happy when none of them have the means or will to celebrate. The president of zambian threw a birthday party worth a few thousand dollars (or a few million in their currency) even after hearing economic aid was denied to his country. The leader of the RNC fabricated in words an act of heroism to win favor.
...and all you can think to make fun of is the first good news Iraqi's get in a while?
I am no Obama supporter, but from the looks of his latest agenda on Iraq, it looks like he listened to the very sage advice of his military advisers and decided to leave a transitional force (not a combat force mind you) to train the Iraqi military and conduct limited counterterrorism operations.
Defense Secretary Gates, Admiral Mullen, and General Odierno obviously put some thought into this, so if I were the President and they told me to keep some troops there, I would heed their advice.
