    That is a fact and it can not be denied. Bush was bad, Obama is horrendous.

    Bullshit. The Middle East has never been under any US President. We have meddled there at our own risk. And we have lost far fewer people in the Middle East during our Presidents time in office than we lost during Bush's.

    The middle east is always a disaster, how would a republican president issuing daily ultimatums and threats or even unilaterally invading be any better? Or are you thinking they would just behave with a republican president? Our meddling in their politics has bore some pretty bitter fruit, please explain how more support for dictators, military interventions and tough talking ultimatums would have made a difference because that is the entire republican plan for the ME.

    That is a fucking war not a stat.

    Prior to Obama we had dictators that while anti American kept the hate and terrorism in check. Now we've got the fucking UN voting in favor of hammas in palestine. On top of that we're trying to being terrorists from gitmo to American soil ala Feinstein.

    The legacy of the Bush administration in the Middle East was an empowered and emboldened Iran. We basically handed them the keys to the region with our befuddled wallowing around in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Under this President, Iran has been forced to retreat and their tentacles to Hizbollah, Syria and Hamas have been damaged. At the same time, our relationship with Israel has been strengthened with joint intelligence and military co-operation at an all time closeness. Obama's deployment of sea-based missile defense systems, to replace the politically volatile land-based system Bush was determined to shove down the Russian's throat, makes the whole region and southern Europe more secure.

    Instead of the Middle East being a failure under Obama, it's actually one of his more outstanding successes.

    Yeah, the Middle East has really gone off the rails since Obama became president.

    I don't think that the president made the Middle East any worse.
    He just did nothing to make it any better.
