Obama Has Been At War Longer Than Any Other President In History

Bush was a horrible president. At the time, I thought he was the worst president in American history.

But Obama has made a lot of firsts himself …

For example, Obama:

  • Sentenced whistleblowers to 31 times the jail time of all prior u.s. presidents combined
  • Has granted less pardons than any president since Garfield, who served only 200 days as president before being assassinated in 1881
  • May be the only U.S. president in history who failed to deliver a single year of at least 3% economic growth (when adjusted for inflation)

In addition, Obama has presided over:

And as the New York Times notes this week, Obama has been at war longer than any president in history.

    True, dire, and dreadfully saddening. But is it really Obama’s record? “He who rides the tiger cannot dismount” and the tiger goeth whither he will. And especially when ridden by a doll or a puppet or a dummy.

    • nomadfiles

      yes it is obama’s record. i don’t know if the metaphor is apt, but if he road the tiger, he rode it enthusiastically.

    • Carl_Herman

      Obama is a puppet; owned by forces behind him. Until we have arrests of the obvious leaders (like Obama, Bush, Cheney, Hillary, etc.) for obvious crimes centering in war, money, and lies, We the People will never have the truth, will never have policies for public benefit, and will only have escalating policies GW documents so powerfully in this article.

    • nomadfiles

      He’s riding a war horse and he’s riding it with greater abandon than his predecessors.

    The reason Bush was and still is the worst President is the fact that he was a Republican and we all know how Republicans are supposed to rule and yet this guy grew the govt AND spent taxpayer money like a drunken sailor. While Obama eclipses him in almost all aspects of govt spending does that really surprise you beings he’s a liberal DemocRAT and that what that breed of vermin does naturally?? Two bums in a row, three if you count Bill Clinton and I just wonder if this country can pull itself together and recover after such a string of ABJECT FAILURES like 3 three psychopaths that masqueraded as a US President. Should Hillary be elected and for all intents and purposes America will be finished and…lost. A successful business man like Donald Trump becoming President?? He’s now the country’s only hope…

    • Merf56

      Are you seriously saying you actually think Trump was/is a ‘successful businessman’? Have you no knowledge of the way he works? He is a con man who uses then loses other people’s money all the while enriching himself. He is a one man Ponzi scheme.. Please, research how he operates. We have had enough crooks and incompetents this past many decades… C

      • Secret Agent

        Oh bullshit. If Trump had engaged in criminal activity the MSM would be all over it.

        • Merf56

          I just reread my comment and I said nothing about anyone being a criminal. If fact I am pretty certain Trump has enough lawyers to keep things absolutely legal. Now that we have cast your straw man aside I hope you will look carefully into Mr Trump’s business behaviors. If you do I am fairly certain you would not want a person behaving in that manner as a President.

        • Silverado

          I agree. Same thing with his supposed “ill treatment” of women. The NY Times is eating crow after their latest attack piece that didn’t quite work, especially when we learn from these women that that isn’t what they even said. So IF they can find these “unfortunate victims” (which they can’t) they’d be all over that too just like the Secret Agent says. And besides, Hillary is a criminal and Bernie is a Socialist neither would be a good fit in this country IMO period.

  • John Francis

    What a spot on article!!

    On top of all that he was the president who started the persecution of Christians who won’t celebrate same-sex “marriage,” trampling the rights of conscience.

    How can anyone has ever seen the video of ISIS buring alive in a cage the poor Jordanian pilot, not be outraged that Obama has not been impeached, when they see this president on video telling how he is speeding up the training of ISSL forces?

      Aug 7, 2015 US Intelligence Confirms US Support for ISIS

      A partially-declassified DIA report brings disturbing details about US support for jihadists in Syria. What kind of game is the US government playing in the Middle East?

      https://youtu.be/d2WrwUM2RwI

      • unheilig

        Kerry came right out with the game plan this morning, stating unequivocally that the objective in Syria was not to defeat or even impede IS or terrorism, but regime change. Apparently the entire western media was listening with deaf ears. What a surprise.

        • This will give you greater insight on why this is with media in America.

          Oct 28, 2012 Who owns the media?

          The six corporations that collectively control U.S. media today are Time Warner, Walt Disney, Viacom, Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., CBS Corporation and NBC Universal. Together, the “big six” absolutely dominate news and entertainment in the United States.

  • Joseph Mirzoeff

    Established the practice of Presidential assassination, with only the oversight of a secret court that always says yes. Advanced the drone war.

    • diogenes

      Sorry. The practice of Presidential assassination as a tool of (deep) state was established on 11/22/63.

        Assassination BY not assassination OF.

  • This should be used as a guide for this article, and a point of reference is always a good idea in my book.

    Don’t forget all his bloated militarism budgets, his illegal drone/assassination program, and his trillion-dollar “upgrade” of the omnicidal nuclear weapons arsenal over the next decades.

    He also presided over the Gulf oil spill fiasco allowing BP to make the disaster worse with corexit.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but if I read Zeusse right, he’s the only pres to facilitate a Nazi coup.

  • May 16, 2016 US & Coalition Forces Preparing A Large Scale Military Operation In Northern Syria- Episode 972b

    The Obama administration is pushing permitted speech not ‘free’ speech. TSA pushing to have everyone tracked using pre-checkin. FBI and other agencies are spying on Americans by hiding microphones in public places. Venezuela is imploding and the US is preparing for the coup. Kiev will resume talks after OSCE policy are disbursed in the South Easter area. US holding war games in Romania. US and the coalition forces planning a large scale attack in Northern Syria, Turkey is on high alert for terrorist attacks which will mostly likely be used to start the offensive.

    So spot-on and so ignored by the DNC-ish media, including most “liberal” blogs. They’re covering transgender bathrooms and the latest Trumpisms. Their sense of priority tells me most — but definitely not all — of them are “controlled opposition”.

  • diogenes

    Don’t worry. Once she’s President Hitlery will change everything.

  • Hosea Mcadoo

    I have been writing almost identical ideas to my list for two years. I think he is not only the worst but the most dangerous and has harmed USA more even than Bush/Cheney who come in second. They were more obnoxious and didn’t have the gift of lying but were less dangerous.

    My question is will Obama leave or will we have in “incident” requiring martial law and dissolution of Constitutional government?

    • Merf56

      Nonsense.

  • Listen American people, a missing Okinawan girl was found dead just as a confession of a US personnel in Okinawa yesterday.
    The personnel has been arrested now.

    American people, is that what you wanted?
    Do you hate us the Japanese this much?
    Why do you need to hurt us?
    Don’t you feel anything wrong with what your military is doing in my country?
    Do you know what “shame” is?

    American people, your force is nothing but a LIFE THREAT to our security.
    WE CAN’T LIVE WITH THAT ANYMORE.
    US FORCE GET OUT, GET OUT RIGHT NOW.
    Shut down all the base in Japan NOW!
    Go home, just get out, go home.
    Only American civilians can stay, military no.

  • People in this forum, I understand you are the few ones who maintain the sane spirit, who are not so brainwashed.
    I understand but I have something to do, something to tell, as a Japanese.
    We need your help, get your military squatting in my country pull up ASAP.
    As we need to live WITHOUT a LIFE THREAT that your military is causing.
    SHUT DOWN ALL THE US BASE IN JAPAN, do something for it, speak up, spread the truth, tell your people what your military is really doing in my country, write your congress, talk to your friends and folks about this case, DO THE RIGHT THING NOW.

    HELP US, this is my SOS.

    • Alvin

      I believe it is your Country,s Leaders responsibility to tell the US Military to get out.Maybe your leaders are just as corrupt as ours.

  • I repeat, listen American people, a missing Okinawan girl was found dead just as a confession of a US personnel in Okinawa yesterday.
    The personnel has been arrested now.
    Do the right thing, we need your help, bring out those brave people below again, do whatever you can, save us the Japanese.

    He is also the president who is doing his best to deliver the U.S. on a silver platter to global corporate fascists with the implementation of TTP, TTIP and TISA….

  • Thought not a great Prez, I don’t think W was anywhere near the bottom. If this post had an ulterior motive in making that claim–to ATTRACT reads from those who might not otherwise do so–then I applaud that deceit. In fact, I’ll betcha W would, as well. He was/IS a good man, unlike the waste of human tissue currently in the White House.
