PostSubject: OBAMA CLAIMS CREDIT ON IRAQ WAR   Mon 30 Aug 2010, 6:50 am

*For all of the socialism and Islamist-appeasement of this administration, the one thing that has bothered me the most about this president (and candidate in 2007-08) is his screechingly perverse antiwar ideology and opportunism. Barack Obama was the most antiwar Senator in Congress throughout 2007 and in 2008 he tried to play both sides of the fence: After opposing the surge he then turned around and hailed its success, while insisting once more that the war was wrong. As noted in his New York Times op-ed in July 14, 2008, "My Plan for Iraq":

In the 18 months since President Bush announced the surge, our troops have performed heroically in bringing down the level of violence. New tactics have protected the Iraqi population, and the Sunni tribes have rejected Al Qaeda — greatly weakening its effectiveness.

The surge did bring down the level of violence but:
the strain on our military has grown,
the situation in Afghanistan has deteriorated and
we’ve spent nearly $200 billion more in Iraq than we had budgeted
Iraq’s leaders have failed to invest tens of billions of dollars in oil revenues in rebuilding their own country and
they have not reached the political accommodation that was the stated purpose of the surge.

I do not hate this president. Instead, I find him **repugnant because he brings deep shame to the role of Commander-in-Chief. And that shame is seen one more time with this weekend's White House announcement on the end of U.S. combat operations in Iraq. IMHO, Obama just lies when he claims to be upholding the "sacred trust" of our fighting men and women. It takes more than winning an election to win that trust -- you have to earn it. That said, folks may have different emotions than I do. But I think we can agree that getting the Democrats out of power in 2010 and 2012 will begin the process of restoring American power in the world. I cringe at the thought of this sick ACORN-sleazeball presidential interloper directing the force and capabilities of the U.S. abroad. But time heals all wounds, and the electorate is rumbling.......





Notes:
* I modified the post to bring it in line with my beliefs.
**repugnant ….contradictory; inconsistent or incompatible with the principles required of a U.S. President.

Many people (that I know) are alive only because it’s illegal to shoot them.

Ronald Reagen said it best.......The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.

I have always said I don't care what you do or with whom you do it, but don't demand that I think that it is normal or that it is OK!!!!

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity!
how rude
