Majority of US Military Negative Barack Hussein Obama
Lame Duck US President Barack Hussein Obama will leave office on January 20th with Negative reviews from the majority members of our Military.
More than 50% the troops in a new poll had an unfavorable opinion of Barack Hussein Obama’s leadership of the military for the past 8 years, and about 36% said they approved of his performance as Commander in Chief, according to the latest survey by the Military Times and the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University.
Nearly 49% of service members who voted in the November election cast their ballots for Republican Donald Trump, who was very critical of Mr. Obama, while 29% voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton, who was once Mr. Obama’s Secretary of State.
Fully 71% said the military needs more personnel than authorized under Mr. Obama in conjunction with Congress, and 59 % said Mr. Obama’s withdrawal of combat troops from Iraq has made America less safe, and 54% said moves to draw down US forces from Afghanistan have made America less safe.
And 43% said the United States should deploy more troops to combat zones compared with 32% who favored reductions in those forces, and 25% who said the current deployment figures are acceptable.
On the other hand, 69% supported Mr. Obama’s advocacy of building strong alliances with other countries to project US influence, 64% backed the use of Special Forces instead of large-scale military operations to bolster US national security, and 60% approved the use of drones.
The survey found that 29.1% of military personnel rated the President very unfavorably and 22.4% rated him somewhat unfavorably, 51.5% Negative. About 12.1% were neutral.
President Obama’s objectives have included reducing reliance on military force abroad and cutting back US interventions in Afghanistan and Iraq, promoting equality in the armed forces for women, and allowing gays to serve openly in the military.
President Obama’s critics say he was not aggressive enough in fighting international terrorists and stopping gains by US enemies in Afghanistan and Iraq, and he did not support big boosts in the military budget.
Thankfully, the Obama Era is finished, Ooh Rah!
Looking for President Elect Donald Trump to rebuild our military and strengthen our position in the world, America First.
