57. The truth is in the details....

"President Obama wanted to stay longer -- as recently as a few weeks ago asking the Iraqi government to allow 10,000, then 3,000 troops to remain past New Year's Eve."

...speculation and rumor aside:

Panetta's Signature Ends War In Iraq

Just before 7 a.m., Defense Secretary Leon Panetta signed a document, officially ending the Iraq War. Pentagon press secretary George Little tweeted:

At 6:59 A.M., Secretary Panetta approved the order officially ending the Iraq war: EXORD 1003 Victor, Mod 9.

You could say President Nixon ended the war in Vietnam, end of story as well if you want to ignoring the details.. unfortunately a presidency is made up of details. They made Reagan an icon by ignoring the details.... And the only way you turn Barack Obama's presidency from a disappointing mediocre Presidency into a historically good one is by ignoring the details.. O's God forsaken Afghanistan policy.. spending billions and costing the lives of thousands supporting Bush's hand chosen crooked dictator in a tribal state of warlords one of many items that come to mind.
Hey, I voted for the guy.. I WANTED to like him.. Obama left me I didn't leave him. There's a lot of folks like me out here and the Obama administration has made it clear they're not interested in listening, unless it's election time.
