We Will Miss You President Obama Thank you for these eight years

  • Ending the Iraq War: Thank you for ordering the troops out of Iraq. This was incredibly important decision because the U.S. occupation of Iraq was a violation of International Law since there was no concrete evidence that Iraq failed to disarm. If we had not pulled out the troops then the U.S. would have risked an international incident with the United Nations.
  • Osama Bin Laden: Thank you for eliminating Osama Bin Laden, who was the leader of the terrorist cell Al-Queda. Bin Laden was the mastermind behind one of the largest attacks on U.S. soil, resulting in the loss of many lives and the destruction of the World Trade Center and the west side of the Pentagon.
  • Don't Ask, Don't Tell: Thank you for repealing Don't Ask, Don't Tell. This repeal allowed gays, lesbian, and transgendered people to openly serve in the military without fearing dismissal from the army.
  • Reversing President Bush's Torture Policies: Two days after taking office, President Obama nullified President Bush's rulings that had allowed detainees in U.S. custody to undergo torture techniques considered inhumane under the Geneva Conventions. Also released the secret Bush legal rulings supporting the use of these techniques.
  • Improved America’s Image Abroad: There was a sharp decline in world opinion toward the U.S. during the Bush years. From 2008 to 2011, favorable opinion toward the United States rose in ten of fifteen countries surveyed by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, with an average increase of 26 percent!
