Well, this is pretty galling, (skip to around 6:50):
He and Obama are gonna try to take full credit for Iraq after their history of undermining the effort?
This video, via Gateway Pundit exposes the hypocrisy:
Jim Hoft reminds us:
In 2007 candidate Barack Obama said that, “The United States cannot use its military to solve humanitarian problems and that preventing a potential genocide in Iraq isn’t a good enough reason to keep U.S. forces there.”
Obama and Biden were eventually “persuaded” by the fact that the 20,000 troop surge helped win the war. Now they’re taking credit for the outcome?
A few more things that jumped out at me in that second video:
Virtually no one else thinks it’s a good idea”…
“Every observer believes”…(with us)…
“I don’t know any expert on the region…” (who agrees with your side)…
When you hear Democrats, and especially Obama use language like that, please be advised that you are being scammed. We’ve heard Obama use it on the economy, (every economist agreed with his stimulus plan), health care (all the experts agree with the Dem plan), etc.
No they didn’t/don’t.
This is why they use astroturfing online, and on the streets as phony grassroots support for their plans. They want to project the idea that their ideas are more popular and accepted than they are.
Another favored Obama rhetorical device: The strawman:
Top of the Ticket: Joe Biden update: Iraq one of Obama’s ‘great achievements’
