Grim Milestone: It Took Obama Just 27 Months To Rack Up As Many Deaths of U.S. Troops In Afghanistan as We Suffered Under Bush Over 7 Years

Obama was going to end the wars, close Gitmo, and usher in an era of Peace and Stability, on the Foreign Policy front, wherein nations around the world would, once again, respect and love America.

Instead, the world is more volatile than ever, there are more fundamentalist Islamic governments than ever before (Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, and soon-to-be Syria), and three times as many American servicemen are being murdered in Afghanistan than under George Bush.

The Presidency of Barack Obama is a disaster.

From Will at The Other News:
Louis R. Torres of Oberlin, Ohio, died August 22, 2012, of injuries sustained by an explosive device in Kandahar two weeks earlier. 
Now the longest conflict in U.S. history, the Afghanistan war has taken the lives of 2,000 Americans, half of whom were killed in just the past two and a half years.
