The Obama White House is shameless, simply shameless. Iraq, one of Obama’s greatest achievements? Not only has this administrations failed in their own policies, they now want to take credit for previous President’s ones when they opposed them at the time.
Ever since Barack Hussein Obama became President he has blamed former President George W. Bush for all the ills of the United States. Now after pretty much every Obama policy and initiative has failed, this Administration is looking to take credit for the success in Iraq. UNBELIEVABLE!
Gee President Obama, why aren’t you blaming the success in Iraq on GWB? After all, he was responsible for the leadership and the surge.
Barack Obama voted against the surge … now he wants credit for its success.

Let us not forget that Senator Obama voted against the GWB surge in Iraq. If it were up to Obama, the surge and in the end the military success in Iraq would have never taken place. Um, the surge that changed the military fortunes in Iraq and made it possible for the US military successes. So how exactly is Iraq a success for Obama? Biden went so far as wanting to split Iraq up into three separate ethnic regions. Both Biden and Obama were vocal critics of the Bush surge, now they look to take credit for the bold and brave decosion by GWB.
Seen below is Barack Obama speaking at Camp Lejeune on February 27, 2009. Military Hawk Obama talked about the success of our efforts in Iraq. The very same individual when he was a Senator and the Democrat Party tried to undermine on a daily basis. Take a good look at this VIDEO and watch Biden criticize GWB’s plan of a surge in 2007, while they now take credit for its success.
First it was VP Joe Biden who tried to take credit for the success in Iraq.
BIDEN: Well, you’ve heard me say that for the last 10 years. I think it’s the — it’s a big country. It has nuclear weapons that are able to be deployed. It has a real significant minority of radicalized population. It is — it is not a completely functional democracy in the sense we think about it. And so it’s — it — that’s my greatest concern.
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.
The Gateway Pundit further reminds us of the non-binding resolution helped put forward by then DE Senator Joe Biden:
On January 16, 2007, Chuck Hagel, Delaware Democrat Joe Biden (Senate Foreign Relations Committee chair), and Michigan Democrat Carl Levin (Armed Services Committee chair) co-sponsored a non-binding resolution that says it is “not in the national interest of the United States to deepen its military involvement in Iraq.”
