Anyone that knows me knows that I am no fan of the Obama administration. I think they reached a new low today. Watching the video of Gibbs saying that they won the Iraq War is absolutely incredible to anyone who has followed the war. Obama was one of the most outspoken critics of the war. Biden famously wanted to divide Iraq into three countries. The Democrats voted against the surge, and used rhetoric to stir up opposition to the war. I was at the Republican convention in Minnesota when 3 Code Pink radicals nearly got on the stage when Sarah Palin was speaking. Thankfully, they didn’t. You should have seen the Secret Service manhandle them. It didn’t bring a tear to my eye.
I also was not a fan of Bush. But you have to give Bush credit for the surge. The surge won the war in Iraq. Obama insults everyone’s intelligence by trying to delude them. This is one of the reasons his approval is dropping like a mobster with cement shoes. If he was honest, then they would listen more.
