OBAMA SHAMELESSLY TAKES CREDIT FOR VICTORY IN IRAQ
DESPITE OPPOSITION TO THE SURGE AND FIGHTING BUSH EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
Were you as disgusted as we were with watching Barack Obama’s speech announcing the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq and his acting like he was responsible for the victory? How shameless can you get!
Barack Obama and his allies in Congress, Democrat Senate leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, did all they could to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in Iraq. They fought President Bush at every turn. When Senator John McCain and our military leaders said we needed a troop surge, Bush listened. Obama and his consortium of anti-military Congressional pals opposed it.
But Bush and McCain proved themselves to be right as our military men and women have led us to a spectacular victory in Iraq. While it isn’t over, we have largely pacified the country and took the huge oil resources of Iraq out of the potential hands of terrorists. Obama seems to forget that the number one job of President is to keep America safe.
If that wasn’t annoying enough, don’t you think Obama owed it to President Bush and Senator McCain to acknowledge their tough decisions and perseverance that has led to this victory? He didn’t mention them at all, except a cheap shot at Bush for getting us into Iraq in the first place. We were totally disgusted by this performance.
To make matters worse, Obama just announced the basic withdrawal plan that has already begun under President Bush – a plan that allows us to withdraw with victory, and not the defeat that Obama would have given us had he had his way and no military surge had taken place. Then, contrary to all of the military advice, he gives a specific timetable so our enemy knows how long it will take to wait us out?
OBAMA’S ACTIONS REMIND US OF THE
FAILED DEFENSE POLICIES OF JIMMY CARTER
This is complete amateur night and frightening to contemplate. It reminds us of the incompetence demonstrated by Jimmy Carter in allowing the radical Islamic terrorist regime to take over in Iran. There seems to be no learning from history.
President Obama is making a huge hullaballoo about nothing, in fact his “timetable” for withdrawal sounds no different from anything President George W. Bush ever proposed. A timely, gradual withdrawal, based on the conditions on the ground, making sure that Al Qaeda is not resurgent in the areas we are withdrawing from and ensuring that the Iraqi forces have a handle on security.
Barack Obama is basically implementing President Bush’s policies, which he has fought tooth and nail. The big difference is that President Bush seemed to understand the dangers of letting up on Al Qaeda, while Obama is giving them every opportunity to wait us out with his definite timetable and then come back.
