Civil liberties? Bush turned the whole economy upside down and screwed everything up. Bush is like the little kid who made a mess and Obama is the preschool teacher who has to come and clean up the mess.
Right wingers hate reality.
Obama isn't "forced" to do anything. He is the Commander in Chief. He could have withdrawn the troops the day he took office, but the troops are STILL in Afghanistan and he tried to keep them in Iraq, but he had to withdraw on Bush's timetable.
That means he CHOSE to keep them there, and it was his decision. He's also gotten the United States involved in Libya, and is now funding al-Qaeda in Syria.
Civil liberties has nothing to do with the economy. Obama extended the Patriot Act, which was brought into law under BUSH. Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, which allows the indefinite detention of American citizens. Along with that, Obama has had two American citizens killed without due process.
More Obama civil liberty violations here
Despite what the media has told you, Obama has been an awful President, and is BUSH on steroids. I provided you with facts here. Take them as you wish.
