Well, lets see. I'm going to talk slow so you can keep up, but please don't hesitate to ask what the big words mean. Obama isn't a part of this particular story. That should answer your question, but I think maybe some context might be beneficial for you. Maybe some participation will help drive home the answer to your question; What number is bigger: 400,000* or 1,200? Here is another one, you can just shout out the answer, no need to be formal; Who started the Iraq War, Obama or Bush? edit: And I don't know of too many lefties who have been more critical of Obama than me. *low estimate of Iraqi deaths during the Bush Administration (the guys who started the war that Obama inherited and mismanaged).
