Emily, Bush turned a bad situation around in Iraq. Yes , you can question our 
initial presence there all you want. It certainly wasn't *blood for oil*. But 
Bush had won the hearts, minds, trust and cooperation of the Sunnis which 
required our stabilization efforts to continue, mainly by a stabilizing force 
of 30-40 thousand troops, inactive for the most part, similar to what we did 
with Germany and Japan at the end of WW2 . Shiia had power they had never had 
before and Iran was manipulating them. Obama wanted out at *all costs* and 
definitely didn't want to see Bush's efforts succeed. How would that look? He 
didn't want us there in the first place and if Bush made a silk purse out of a 
sow's ear that wasn't going to make him look good. Obama did everything in his 
power to thwart the work Bush had done. Obama had been warned by numerous 
military and political experts that if we left Iraq too early that Iraq would 
become exactly what we see today.

    Reflecting the Frontline piece on this topic.....Obama is not responsible 
for the Shia/Sunni dynamic.  He is not responsible for the atrocities committed 
by Maliki in his fear of, and  inability to, lead and further what needed to be 
an inclusively represented government in Iraq.  Was he trying to get us out of 
Iraq?  Yes, he was.  We shouldn't have been there in the first place, in that 
we were there based on false pretenses. It wasn't a war the citizens here were 
in favor of either, particularly after it was clear Bush and cronies had 
forwarded the WMD story falsely (which I thought was obvious BS from the 
beginning, but so many believed.) Did the removal of US troops allow for the 
existing rage there to erupt and contribute to the formation of ISIL.  Maybe?  
Is the caliphate dangerous?  Very.  There needs to be a coordinated effort to 
continue to go after ISIS and all countries need to get on board. We can't do 
it alone and we can't occupy and police other countries indefinitely.  Violence 
breeds violence and ISIS is a perfect example of the evil stemming from that 
principle.  
Your rigid insistence of repeating right-wing rhetoric as truth is tiresome. 
The debt sentence you cite doesn't reflect the truth; we've been over that.  
Here's the scoop on that again for you.

Please take him and do it quickly. Richard Brunt has blinders on and sees only

200,000 jobs a month can't keep our heads above water. They are lousy, low 
paying , and part time jobs.  Seventeen percent of those jobs have gone to 
illegal immigrants. The unemployment numbers do not account for those that have 
given up looking  for work. More people than ever are on government assistance 
programs including food stamps, welfare and unemployment. The middle class is 
shrinking. Race relations are at the lowest that they have been since before 
the civil rights movement began. Even Tavis Smiley admits that blacks have done 
very poorly, even regressed economically,  under Obama. Obama gave back hard 
won and costly victories and surrendered Iraq to Iran and ISIS. Completely 
destabilized the middle- east, where our allies don't trust us any longer. 
Stabbed Mubarak a long time ally, who creating stability, in the back turning 
Egypt over to the Muslim Brotherhood. Libya is now a failed state run by ISIS. 
Draws imaginary *red-lines* in the sands of Syria. His policies have seen the 
greatest influx of refugees from Africa and the middle-east into Europe. He 
releases terrorist back to the battlefield. There have been more terrorist 
attacks on the homeland since 9/11 than ever occurred during the Bush 
administration. He didn't get Bin Laden, the CIA did. He just accepted the 
political responsibility, knowing if it ever got out that he wouldn't, he'd be 
run out of the country. Putin is on the move, taking Georgia and seizing parts 
of the Ukraine, threatening other countries once controlled by the former 
Soviet Union.Oh, I'm just getting started. But Please, do us a favor and take 
that *bastard*(literally and figuratively) from us and do it quickly!

 This is how many Canadians feel about Obama. This particular letter to the
