Reader: Barack Obama is a war president, whether supporters want to admit it or not
Yesterday, while Barack Obama's Denver appearance, Sam Levin asked ten supporters of the presidents explaining why they attended the speech. One person who spoke with him said she feared presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney would lead the nation into war -- which prompted this fiery response.
I guess Vicki Dillard (like most Obama apologists) fails to realize that Obama is a War President, in some cases even more than Bush.
Just ask the thousands of innocent civilians (many of whom were women and children) in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and Libya who have been murdered by drone bombs.
Just ask the people of Iran who are the victims of draconian sanctions due to the actions of their government.
