    Time and time again; I see this talking point; that Obama is keeping us out of war. This is used as some sort of contrast between Romney and Obama. One big f'ing problem. We're still in Afghanistan for all of his term and we're still doing drone attacks all over the Middle East.

    Well, sonny, Obama is just trying to clean up Boy George's mess - while whacking the evildoers and keeping America safe. It ain't rocket science...

    No__ If he wanted to troops out of Afghanistan, he could get the troops on a plane. It ain't rocket science.

    Besides cleaning up after the Bush debacles in Afghanistan and Iraq how many invasions and occupations has the CoC ordered?

    I seem to recall that most complaints from the 'nuts around here regarding Libya were that Obama was leaving too much up to the Europeans, or our NATO allies.

    I guess you're disappointed that he didn't take your advice and go in there unilaterally guns blazing, so now you'd be able to flip flop and accuse him of starting another war.

    I heard a mind boggling interview with McCain this morning on Morning Joe,

    about Afghanistan, McCain first said, if he'd been president he'd probably have had us out of there by now,

    then, when he was asked but what would he do now, he said he'd ask the generals how many more troops they needed.

    That's the nut we could have been suffering for 4 years with.

    Are Obama supporters even claiming this? It's so demonstrably false (Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, Yemen, etc...) that I can't see anybody making this claim.
