Despite little attention in the mainstream media – one of George W. Bush’s three “Axis of Evil” nations, North Korea, announced it would suspend its uranium enrichment program in exchange for food aid from the United States.  The new leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un also agreed to suspend any future nuclear and missile tests. 
So without one U.S. soldier deployed, without one missile launched, without one airstrike, President Obama did something George W. Bush couldn't do in 8 years.  It just goes to show that carrots, like food aid and building schools, are almost always more effective than sticks like tanks and jet fighters.
