Pathetic. Cut-&-Runner Joe Biden Again Tries to Take Credit for Iraq Success

The cut-and-runners want to take credit for success in Iraq.

In 2007 both Barack Obama and Joe Biden continually spoke out against the Bush Surge of troops in Iraq.

From the video: Speaking at Camp Lejeune on February 27, 2009, Barack Obama talked about the success of our efforts in Iraq which he and the Democratic Party tried to undermine on a daily basis. It also shows what Biden and Obama said in 2007 to undermine US troops serving in Iraq.

The Politico reported, via HotAirPundit:

Vice President Joe Biden said after a three-day trip to Baghdad that the American people will see President Barack Obama’s Iraq policy as a success when the “combat mission” ends on schedule Aug. 31. Biden said the administration “will be able to point to it and say, ‘We told you what we’re going to do, and we did it.’”

“I think America wins,” Biden told POLITICO in an end-of-trip interview at the ambassador’s residence in the sprawling U.S. Embassy complex. “I sound corny, but I think America gets credit here in the region. And I think everybody gets credit, from George Bush to [President Obama].

“I think Americans will recognize that there aren’t body counts … that they got 95,000 people home. That will be noticeable that they’re home.”

The chief purpose of Biden’s visit was to prod Iraqi politicians to form a government and end a four-month stalemate that followed parliamentary elections.

In 2007 candidate Barack Obama supported genocide over staying in Iraq,

“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.”

But, today these filthy political hacks want to take credit for Iraq.
