Wow... Who Would Have Seen This Coming...

Via Fox News

President Obama all but declared victory in Iraq Tuesday, telling U.S. troops during a surprise visit to Camp Victory that they had given the Arab nation an opportunity to stand on its own as a democratic country. That, he said, is an extraordinary achievement.

Hmmmm.... I think he may have had something to say on this before...
"We're not going to baby sit a civil war." Barack Obama on NBC's
Today Show on January 11, 2007

"I don't oppose all wars. What I am opposed to is a dumb war." Barack Obama at an anti-Iraq war rally in Chicago, October 26, 2002.

Those stand in some pretty stark contrast to what he said during his visit...

"Here's a couple things I want to say. Number one, thank you," the president bellowed as he addressed troops at a stopover at the tail end of a marathon overseas trip.

Obama said the next 18 months are critical to the mission. U.S. troops are expected to be out of the country by the end of 2010.

"You've kept your eyes focused on just doing your job and because of that, every mission that's been assigned, from getting rid of Saddam to reducing violence to stabilizing the country to facilitating elections, you have given Iraq the opportunity to stand on its own as a democratic country. That is an extraordinary achievement and for that you have the thanks of the American people," he said.
Go ahead there Urkel and take credit for none of the shit you had a hand in supporting. I do wonder what his Code Pink supporters think of this?

The troopers that are out there making this possible know the difference.

Wow, who'd have thought. Of course the MSM won't pay much attention. It isn't in their best interest.
