  • Obama Back Peddles from Iraqi Troop Withdrawal

    Originally posted by Newsmax
    President Barack Obama now says predecessor George W. Bush and his administration were responsible for the 2011 withdrawal of American troops from Iraq, according to The Washington Times.

    Despite couching the "full removal of U.S. forces from Iraq" as the White House’s having made good on a 2008 Obama promise to do just that — it was a key talking point in his campaign speeches — the president is now back-stepping, according to the Times.

    Obama's reflexive response is to blame Bush. I'll bet if he shanks a shot out on the golf course he grumbles that Bush made him do that.

      ...so if a Democrat gets elected in 2016, will he be inheriting Bush's mess?

              Newsmax, citing an opinion piece in the Moonie Times .. . isn't exactly what most of would call news. The only thing weird here is the reporting, which seems to assume Obama is wishing he kept troops in Iraq, or weirder, that Obama is thinking that having troops in Iraq would make a difference.

              That's Insane McCain they're channeling, not Obama. Here's Obama's position:

              American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq because there is no American military solution to the crisis there.

              Really, it's like these folks are from some alternate universe or something.

                Fixed. Your ability to reinterpret Obama talking out of both sides of his mouth as gospel truth is a fascinating case study in sheer lunacy though.

                      It's his thing - if you can't attack the substance, attack the source.

                      It's also why no one pays any attention when he does that....

                        I thought so, I was just curious if there's some hidden meaning in there.
