Bush's 'War' On Terror Comes to a Sudden End

In less than one week, President Obama has taken it upon himself, and decided to reverse our entire strategy regarding the war on terror, because, as we all know "he won." Obama now OWNS whatever happens to our country with regards to terrorism, and no longer gets the right to blame the previous administration.

Now that he's chosen to go in a different direction we will soon see whether or not we were just "lucky" that we haven't been attacked in U.S. over the past 7 years or if all the policies President Bush had implemented were actually effective.

"Mission Accomplished!" (sarcasm)

Excerpt:

"With the stroke of his pen, he effectively declared an end to the "war on terror," as President George W. Bush had defined it, signaling to the world that the reach of the U.S. government in battling its enemies will not be limitless."

  • If you make big goals and never reach them you're called a loser.
    If you make little or no goals, and then somehow do something you get praise.
    Obama figured that out a long time ago.

  • Just like 9/11 wasn't Bush's fault. It was Clinton's according to Bush.

    I'm pleased with what Obama is doing so far. Finally putting this country right after 8 years of backwards thinking.

  • The terror network breathed a sigh of relief the day Obama got elected and the moment he took office. Time will tell if his policies about terrorists will be effective. Bin Laden can come out of hiding now.

  • Thank God for the end of the war.

    If those countries want to wage wars against themselves and blow each other up, I don't think OUR military should be paying for it, financially or with their lives.
