And the democrats veered from the policies that Bush established how? As I recall Obama followed the withdrawal plans for Iraq, established by Bush before he left office, and he instituted a surge in Afghanistan similar to the one that Bush promoted in Iraq. In addition he has accelerated the use of drones hitting targets within the boundaries of sovereign countries, some of which are our allies in the "war against terror". Obama also (with democrat majorities in both houses) renewed the Bush tax cuts and added a payroll tax cut that was just allowed to expire with the passage of the latest fiscal cliff deal.
So yeah, Big Whoop.
