I have to laugh to keep from throwing my keyboard at the absurdity of VP Joe Biden and Press Secretary Gibbs —both representatives of the Obama administration–claiming that Iraq could be the biggest “achievement” for the Obama administration so far.
Robert Gibbs, Obama’s press secretary, tried to take credit for Iraqi success on Thursday in a press briefing. Paraphrased he basically said that Obama’s administration had “put what was broken back together and is bringing our troops home” and says Obama “brought about the political pressure for today’s Iraq success.”
I am very optimistic about — about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration. You’re going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney: Well (laugh) I guess I shouldn’t be surprised by my friend Joe Biden. I’m glad he now believes Iraq is a success. Of course, Obama and Biden campaigned from one end of the country to another for two years criticizing our Iraq policy. They opposed the surge that was absolutely crucial to our getting to the point where we’re at now with respect to Iraq. For them to try to take credit for what’s happened in Iraq strikes me as a little strange. If they had had their way, if we followed the policies of pursued from the outset or abdicated, Saddam Hussein would still be in power in Baghdad today.
If it had been left up to Joe Biden and Barack Obama, Saddam Hussein would still be in power or, later, they would have “ended” the war by cutting and running.
For the record, and to point out the hypocritical and pathological lying that comes from the Obama administration —
- In 2002, Obama admitted he would have voted against the War in Iraq
- ins 2007, Obama voted against the successful surge that Bush implemented.
- Joe Biden was wrong on the surge he now takes credit for.
- Obama was wrong on the surge he now takes credit for.
- Joe Biden proposed dividing Iraq into three countries
- Obama and Biden spoke out numerous times and clearly stated that wanted troops to leave Iraq without a win. They did this continuously and vigorously on the campaign trail.
- In 2007, Joe Biden co-sponsored a resolution saying it is “not in the national interest of the United States to deepen its military involvement in Iraq.”
It should be clearly noted here and by the Obama administration that Iraq is not free today because of Obama or Biden, but the victory in the Iraq War came through brute courage and capability of our military forces and through President George W. Bush who stayed the course.
In contrast to Biden’s words, (“God Love him“)….. I say, Thank you to our military for overturning a dictator, freeing millions, and for stabilizing the country in an effort to bring about a fledgling democracy that is very near to standing on its own. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Victory in Iraq and our troops efforts were made possible through the determination and unwavering policy of George W. Bush and his administration. Bush’s policies freed millions from the hands of a violent, tyrannical dictator and established what you now see in Iraq. Bush held firm against those who spoke lies about our troops and who tried to diminish both Bush and our military in a time of war. Bush instituted the surge and won the war in Iraq against all of the protestations of the cut-and-runner Democrats. Thank you George W. Bush for implementing a policy that, not without risks, was implemented with the focus on winning the war instead of politics.
History will correct the lies of the Obama administration and will look highly upon the man and the military who actually did free millions from oppression and brought about a victory in the war in Iraq.
