    Obamaism

    I'm intrigued to know what Americans on this forum think Obama did that were considered successes.

    For me, health care but the down side, I don't think he fully thought it through about the costings. But, he had a go.

    Any others? (Consider pros and cons before deciding it was a success).

    I was going to say:

    "Nabbed Bin Laden," but yours works, too.

    Also, I thought he dealt appropriately with the Somali Pirates.

    Yup, that's one.

    I know it wasn't Obama but didn't America fund the rebels in Afghanistan to fight the Russians for the rebels to then go on to form Al Qaeda?

    What I keep noticing is Trump supporters constantly comparing Trump to Obama or asking what would Obama do.

    It is Trump supporters by far bringing up Obama.

    I do bring up Obama when some tenderfoot brings up good news in the economy and think it began on Jan 20, 2017

    I gotta school the minds of mush.
    Thanks from Panzareta

    Brought our soldiers home from Iraq resulting in less flag draped caskets of our fallen. Even tho, Iraq is ghastly yet, the US tried and gave them the tools they needed to defend their country. The Iraqi government blew that one themselves.

    In fairness, he is Trump's immediate predecessor. And comparing current (and prospective) presidents to former ones is sort of par for the course. (No pun intended.)

    He added $9.3 Trillion to the national debt.

    Almost doubled it.

    And in only 8 years!
