Joe Biden sees Iraq success for President Obama

BAGHDAD — Vice President Joe Biden said after a three-day trip to Baghdad that the American people will see President Barack Obama’s Iraq policy as a success when the “combat mission” ends on schedule Aug. 31.
Biden said the administration “will be able to point to it and say, ‘We told you what we’re going to do, and we did it.’”
“I think America wins,” Biden told POLITICO in an end-of-trip interview at the ambassador’s residence in the sprawling U.S. Embassy complex. “I sound corny, but I think America gets credit here in the region. And I think everybody gets credit, from George Bush to [President Obama].
“I think Americans will recognize that there aren’t body counts … that they got 95,000 people home. That will be noticeable that they’re home.”
DO YOU BELIEVE THIS?? I KNOW YOU DON’T!!
This is the man who is responsible for the ‘SURGE’ which led to the success America has in Iraq today!
Are we supposed to be stupid or just plain dead? We all remember that Biden and Obama vehemently opposed the ‘surge operation’ in Iraq initiated by President Bush. Don’t just take my words for it, just listen to this :
Senator Obama questioning General Petraeus on the ‘surge’ back in 2007
Did you notice that anti-war Obama ‘ate’ all of his time by criticizing Bush’s decision to go to Iraq and then Bush’s decision to initiate the surge that was largely suggested by Senator John McCain.
If that is not enough – listen to this –
Obama and Joe Biden have no judgment at all. Had we listened to both of them we would have already suffered a humiliating defeat in Iraq. Biden is a pathological liar!
and now ….
Biden said improved conditions in Iraq will bolster Democrats with voters in November.
“They are going to take a look and see that the president kept his promise getting troops home, which will give them more confidence in the foreign policy he set,” Biden said.
The withdraw timetable that is now being followed was agreed to long before Obama and Biden were even elected!
TRUTH HAS NEVER STOPPED JOE BIDEN BEFORE.
The credit belongs to George W. Bush. Thank you, President Bush.
