    If GW Bush were on this same course of action and rhetoric, he would be excoriated

    by the media and by the Democrats AND by the Republicans.

    But BHO, a Democrat in the White House, gets a pass from the media and from the Dems.

    • I agree with you that dubya would have been excoriated AFTER his Iraq (foolish) enterprise. They were all on board with the bs and he squandered blood and treasure. Once bitten, twice shy...so no go for Dubya.
      Obama on the other hand:
      1. Bin Laden and many top Al Qaeda top brass - executed with Bin Laden being a covert military action
      2. Libya - Surgical strikes with tail-end support to extract and eliminate Qaddafi. (I agree that Benghazi was a mess with inadequate security for Embassies. BTW, we have to pull out of the entire middle east to guarantee security)
      3. Iraq - Responsible exit after hand-off to local authority
      4. Afghanistan - Responsible draw-down

      I think there is a track record here of successful military intervention and withdrawal. What do you think? Let me guess, you will disagree on everything.
