STop the war and restore our image abroad.
I read an article a while ago which claimed President Obama asked the Pentagon for 'options' on the Afghan war, and was only given one... increase the number of troops. So that's what happened.

Here are some more details taken from Bob Woodward's book on the topic:
Without letting Obama off the hook for the final decisions about Afghanistan, the record does show that he was frustrated, cut-off, insulted, threatened implicitly, lied to, usurped, blocked, delayed, undermined, undercut, disobeyed, manipulated, “rolled” and maneuvered into accepting the Afghan war plan of the generals and admirals.
Woodward documents how the tensions began to build between the White House and the Pentagon on which way to proceed in Afghanistan. Then-CIA Director Leon Panetta – siding with the Pentagon – wanted the White House to face reality. Woodward quotes sources that said that Panetta’s advice to the President’s aids was:

“No Democratic president can go against military advice, especially if he asked for it. So just do it. Do what they say.”
How the Pentagon Overrode Obama on Afghanistan

So according to the above, it looks like he did want to end the war in Afghanistan, but the 'military industrial complex' said no.

If the president says stop it tomorrow, it stops tomorrow. The generals work for him.
If George Soros says it goes on then Obama keeps it going.

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

You stated "god sent him" So if that is the case, then god approved of his stance on same sex couples! After all , god knows us before we were born amd knows what we will do in our life time .. right?
Mr dan that is not what he said. That is what you want it to say. He said that God is in control of everything. We don't always understand why God allows some thngs we see to happen but he is a sovereign God who does not answer to our whims but has his own course for our lives ,our countries, and our world. In the end we will understand all his reasons but for now we don't get the whole picture.

"Everything happen for a wise purpose, 'what i mean was, ' for obama
to get into the white-house in racial divided country like this.
it have to happen by god given grace.

Note when obama was running the sodomy argument was not hot as it
is right now, as the DADT policy was still in place.

After he was elected then he repeal DADT for gay's and qeere to come out of the clossett.

NO one can truly said it was a mistake to voter for OB because he
ran a successfull campaign,over john mc cain.

75% of the country vote handed mc cain a lapside lost
now if 75% of american is democrat then there will be no republican

democrat republican independent,we can say sorry he F-up but while
your ink is on the bastard,

This just to show you there's no certainity in life from republican or democrat

I was waiting on some honey but there aren't no Queen bee,
