A Republican friend of mine just posted, "Ten years later, the Iraq War comes to an end" on Twitter. I have no idea what this means. Does he suck at math or does he believe it started in 2001?

Obama's a liar, he said he would end the war.

He has been in office since Jan 2009. Why didn't he end the war then??

It took a GOP controlled House to end the war, they refused to fund it, that's why !

And so it was that deep revealed himself to be the Republican's soundbite creator.

It's official Obama will be a one term president.



God has spoken,

Quote:
Jobs' Meeting With Obama

Jobs, who was known for his prickly, stubborn personality, almost missed meeting President Obama in the fall of 2010 because he insisted that the president personally ask him for a meeting. Though his wife told him that Obama "was really psyched to meet with you," Jobs insisted on the personal invitation, and the standoff lasted for five days. When he finally relented and they met at the Westin San Francisco Airport, Jobs was characteristically blunt. He seemed to have transformed from a liberal into a conservative.

"You're headed for a one-term presidency," he told Obama at the start of their meeting, insisting that the administration needed to be more business-friendly. As an example, Jobs described the ease with which companies can build factories in China compared to the United States, where "regulations and unnecessary costs" make it difficult for them.

Jobs also criticized America's education system, saying it was "crippled by union work rules," noted Isaacson. "Until the teachers' unions were broken, there was almost no hope for education reform." Jobs proposed allowing principals to hire and fire teachers based on merit, that schools stay open until 6 p.m. and that they be open 11 months a year.

Aiding Obama's Reelection Campaign

Jobs suggested that Obama meet six or seven other CEOs who could express the needs of innovative businesses -- but when White House aides added more names to the list, Jobs insisted that it was growing too big and that "he had no intention of coming." In preparation for the dinner, Jobs exhibited his notorious attention to detail, telling venture capitalist John Doerr that the menu of shrimp, cod and lentil salad was "far too fancy" and objecting to a chocolate truffle dessert. But he was overruled by the White House, which cited the president's fondness for cream pie.

Though Jobs was not that impressed by Obama, later telling Isaacson that his focus on the reasons that things can't get done "infuriates" him, they kept in touch and talked by phone a few more times. Jobs even offered to help create Obama's political ads for the 2012 campaign. "He had made the same offer in 2008, but he'd become annoyed when Obama's strategist David Axelrod wasn't totally deferential," writes Isaacson. Jobs later told the author that he wanted to do for Obama what the legendary "morning in America" ads did for Ronald Reagan.

When Obama took office, he had the democratic congress in his hand, which meant he could get any bill passed quite easily. He had the option to put at the top priority either the healthcare reform act, the economic stimulus act, immigration reform, or the Iraq war. He opted to pass the healthcare reform as a vengeance against the insurance companies who allowed her grandmother die due to their ridiculous restrictions.

Then the government got divided and he lost the support from congress, that's why neither the economy, nor immigration, nor the Iraq war have been resolved and they are going to remain fucked as they have been all these years, all thanks to his decision to revenge against the insurance companies - which infers to the fact that he only cared about about he we wanted, not about what the people wanted.

Hindsight is 20 / 20, but in retrospect Obama could have pushed through a HUGE stimulus after his election that addressed the crumbling national infrastructure, need for better broadband infrastructure, and the terrible education system while creating jobs. Instead we got a long, drawn out, poisonous (thanks, GOP) summer of health care debate setting the stage for a presidency of congressional gridlock (thanks, GOP) and vitriol.

He stated during the health care debate that he thought the issue might make him a 1-term President, and failing to make that stimulus HUGE and not just half-assed may carry out that prediction.

I am so glad that this dragged out war with so many losses and so much money spent will be over. I'll believe it when I see it but I sure hope so. I think it might backfire on Obama because obviously the timing will be questioned and exploited. Let's face it, it does look questionable.
