He Wanted a Legacy.....Well, He's Got One.

After lolly-gagging around with a pillow fight type war on terror, afraid of offending anyone muslim and in turn giving rise to the scourge on humanity of ISIS, the biggest threat to western civilization in centuries, Obama has sealed a legacy no other President can claim......
"President Obama came into office seven years ago pledging to end the wars of his predecessor, George W. Bush. On May 6, with eight months left before he vacates the White House, Mr. Obama passed a somber, little-noticed milestone: He has now been at war longer than Mr. Bush, or any other American president.
If the United States remains in combat in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria until the end of Mr. Obama's term -- a near-certainty given the president'€™s recent announcement that he will send 250 additional Special Operations forces to Syria -- he will leave behind an improbable legacy as the only president in American history to serve two complete terms with the nation at war. - Mark Landler, The New York Times
With the incompetence of his Secretaries of State, Barack Obama who won the Nobel Peace Prize before he every did anything as President, spent his years in the White House apologizing for America's past and trying make the nation forget the promises he made as an antiwar candidate. He will leave office with the distinction of a longer tour of duty as a wartime president than Woodrow Wilson (WWI) Franklin Roosevelt (WWII), Lyndon Johnson & Richard Nixon (Vietnam) or his hero Abraham Lincoln (Civil War).
