Obama is the clear choice for president

(Continued)

With respect to foreign policy, this President has exercised leadership while improving relations with our allies After what was becoming endless war, President Obama has brought combat operations in Iraq to an end and the troops are coming home. After 11 years of war in Afghanistan, we are moving in the right direction, namely out, in 2014. His leadership in the international community of nations has brought about the toughest sanctions ever, to tackle the critical issue of a nuclear-armed Iran. And, yes, Osama Bin Laden has been brought to justice.

When President Obama assumed the Presidency, the Dow Jones was at about 8,000. It is now about 13,000, a 60% increase !

Yes, we have come far in four years but we have the potential to go much further as a nation if we choose to continue going forward with President Obama.
