Bush’s Fault: 70% of American Military Fatalities in Afghan War Have Occurred Under Obama

Remember when President Bush and Vice-President Cheney were constantly being portrayed by the left as blood-thirsty war criminals?  Remember when the media was counting off U.S. military deaths during the Iraq and Afghan wars as some sort of celebratory testament as to how terrible Bush and Cheney were?

So I ask you, why is the man who has conducted military operations in four countries – two of which he conducted without congressional authorization (Libya and Central Africa) – and a man who has now been Commander-in-Chief while overseeing 70% of the military deaths in the Afghan War, currently getting a free pass while he polishes up his little Nobel Peace Prize back at the White House?

Via CNS News:

Of the 1,912 U.S. military personnel who have died in the now nearly 11-year-long war in Afghanistan, 1,343 have died since President Barack Obama was inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2009.

Seventy percent of the Afghan War casualties have happened on Obama’s watch… 

… The three years of the Obama have been the three deadliest for U.S. forces in Afghanistan. In 2009, 303 U.S. service members perished there. In 2010, 497 did. In 2011, 399 U.S. military personnel died in Afghanistan.

Obama has also presided over the top five deadliest months of the war, which include: August 2011, when there were 71 deaths; July 2010, when there were 65 deaths; June 2010, when there were 60 deaths; October 2009, when there were 58 deaths; and August 2010, when there were 55 deaths.

Where is Cindy Sheehan?  Where are the Code Pinkos?

I know, I know, much like the economy, the war was much worse than anyone could have ever expected.  And President Obama actually prevented many more deaths through his foreign policy actions.

Pathetic.  Hold the man accountable.

Dick Cheney Speaks From the Heart: Obama an ‘Unmitigated Disaster’

April 16, 2012 at 7:00 am (Dick Cheney, Disaster, Hindenburg, Liz Cheney, Mitt Romney, President Obama, Republican Party, Wyoming)

Dick Cheney should apologize – to unmitigated disasters everywhere.

The Hindenburg looks at this administration as a disaster.

From the Daily Caller:

Former Vice President Dick Cheney walked onstage without any assistance and spoke for an hour and 15 minutes without seeming to tire in his first public engagement since he underwent a heart transplant three weeks ago.
He sat in a plush chair throughout the long chat with daughter Liz Cheney and looked decidedly healthier than recent appearances where he has been gaunt and used a cane.
Cheney even threw in a couple of political plugs amid much reminiscing at the Wyoming Republican Party state convention in Cheyenne on Saturday.
He said the presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is going to do a “whale of a job.” He said it’s never been more important than now to defeat a sitting president and the Republican Party should unite behind Romney.
“He has been an unmitigated disaster to the country,” Cheney said of President Barack Obama.

Good to see Cheney still has the heart of a fighter…

Maine Democrat Says Former VP Cheney Should Be Executed

April 13, 2012 at 7:00 am (Chuck Kruger, Democrat, Dick Cheney, Eliot Cutler, Executed, Maine, Moderate, Saddam Hussein, Vice President)

Not just any Maine Democrat, but a man serving on the Maine legislature’s Moderate Caucus no less.  Executing the former Veep – how Moderate of him.

Via the Maine Wire:

Rep. Chuck Kruger (D-Thomaston), the Democrat chair of the Maine legislature’s Moderate Caucus, used his Twitter account to express his view that former Vice President Dick Cheney should be executed. This comment has led some to question the validity of Kruger’s moderate credentials.
Kruger made the statement through his Twitter account this past summer, saying, “Cheney deserves same final end he gave Saddam. Hope there are cell cams,” a reference to technology that would allow Kruger to watch the proposed execution of the former Vice President of the United States.
A tip alerted The Maine Wire to the extreme comment just days after Kruger led a meeting of the Moderate Caucus that featured a visit from Eliot Cutler, a former Democrat and failed candidate for Governor in the fall of 2010.
The keynote speaker, Cutler talked about finding middle ground to work from. “I think we’re going to see a shift that draws the two parties back to the middle,” Cutler said in a Bangor Daily News article. “I think we’re going to see the return to civility and to moderation,” Cutler said in another interview with public radio.
Kruger’s statement is being viewed as anything but civil.

Kruger naturally chalked it up to his simply being a wise-ass, without actually admitting to posting the tweet. In fact, he tole the Maine Wire that he wouldn’t confirm or deny that he posted the comment, because he couldn’t remember doing it.
