Barack Obama slammed President Bush and defended his atrocious foreign policy while introducing John Kerry as his Secretary of State nominee today in Washington DC.
“When I took office, our nation was engaged in two wars, and al Qaeda was entrenched in their safe havens. Many of our alliances were frayed, and America’s standing in the world had suffered. Over the past four years, we’ve begun a new era of American leadership. We ended the war in Iraq, put the al Qaeda core on the path to defeat, and we’re winding down the war in Afghanistan. We’ve strengthened our alliances, including in Asia; forged new coalitions to meet global challenges; and stood up for human dignity, from North Africa to the Middle East to Burma.”
Now lets look at the facts:
** When I took office al-Qaeda was entrenched in their safe havens.
(Today Al-Qaeda is on the rise throughout northern Africa and the Middle East)
** Many of our alliances were frayed
** America’s standing in the world had suffered.
(Thanks to Democrats and the liberal media’s constant attacks on Bush and the military)
** We’ve ended the war in Iraq
(Thanks to George Bush this was already put into place before Obama came into office.)
** Put Al-Qaeda core on the path of defeat
(Tell that to Ambassador Stevens.)
** We’ve stood up for human dignity.
(Except when we didn’t like for the Iranians during the Green Revolution, for women in Taliban controlled Afghanistan, for the people suffering in Syria…)
The sad thing is Barack Obama and his media lapdogs believe this ridiculous pabulum.
And he continues to get away with these insulting and absurd remarks.
