President Obama is Kicking Butt and Taking Names

You would think that folks would no longer underestimate President Obama. Hillary Clinton underestimated him in the Democratic primary process 4 years ago. John McCain and Sarah Palin underestimated him in the 2008 elections. Methinks that Sen. McConnell, Rep. Boehner, Mitt Romney, Herman Cain, Rick Perry and anyone else that thinks Barack Obama is going to be a 1-term president is underestimating the man.

President Obama is one cool, calm and collected man. He puts his mind to a goal and works through the process until he reaches it. Just ask Osama bin Laden, Muammar al-Qaddafi and the others on Barack Obama's shrinking hit list.

Obama decided that today would be a good day to rock the world with another bombshell -- the end of the war in Iraq. In 2008, in the height of the presidential campaign, then-Senator Obama made a promise to give our military a new mission: ending the war in Iraq.

As the election unfolded, he reiterated this pledge again and again -- but cautioned that we would be "as careful getting out of Iraq as we were careless getting in." 

Last year, the President made progress toward achieving that goal. He brought an end to the combat mission in Iraq, and through the course of the past 14 months, more than 100,000 troops have returned to their families.

Today, President proved himself to be a person of his word -- the war in Iraq will be over by the holidays.

I'm proud of my president ... how about you?

My Love is So Raw - I agree. It appears that the GOP presidential candidates and the GOP leaders in the congress are so set on their policy of 'Just Oppose Whatever Obama Does' that they can't enjoy our nation's victories when they come. It is very sad to see. When did politics get so caustic that we can no longer celebrate the good things about America?
