Obama's "Mission Accomplished"

I think Old Saint Joe Biden has a bit of snow on the brain.

In an interview on Larry King Alive this past Wednesday, the Vice President of these here States United was asked of his current assessment of Iraq.

"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. You're going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government.

I spent -- I've been there 17 times now. I go about every two months -- three months. I know every one of the major players in all of the segments of that society. It's impressed me. I've been impressed how they have been deciding to use the political process rather than guns to settle their differences."

Uh, what was that again?

"I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration."

Good grief.

The Obama administration and the Democratic party have used Iraq as a constant bludgeoning tool toward Bush and most any other Republican supportive of the action in Iraq since it became en vogue within liberal punditry and media circles to do so.

As Senator, Biden actually voted to give President Bush authorization to enact and carry out his plan for Operation Iraqi Freedom. Then, in 2005, as he was preparing for his presidential ambitions, he changed his tune, declaring his vote to be a mistake. If he had to do it again, he claimed, he would vote no. (Not to mention his bizarre plan to carve up Iraq into three parts, like some Tofurky at a vegan Christmas dinner.)

Barack Obama, at every instance he got during the run-up to and throughout his campaign, touted his visionary objections to the Iraq War from the beginning, even though he was but a lowly Illinois State Senator at the time.

From the outset of the Iraqi Surge from 2007-2008, Barack Obama boldly and blindly insisted on making the claim that "The surge is not working." He kept telling himself this lie until July 2008, when, realizing how foolish he sounded condemning the overwhelming success of the surge, he had his campaign website scrubbed of all his prior criticism.

And now, after all the negative attacks on supporters of the war, after all the apologizing to the rest of the world, and after all the damage this administration has done to the morale of the troops fighting to do their jobs, the Obama Administration decides Iraq to be a great achievement for them.

You just can't make this stuff up.

Steve for a year now Obama has been saying he has inherited a mess in regards to the economy. Well I would say that he inherited Bushes' success in Iraq. So go ahead tell us what Obama did in regards to Iraq other than continue with what Bush had already began.

He failed to meet his own target. Or was it just another in a long line of lies?

Andrew X:

Stevie, I'm right with ya, and I think it would be entirely appropriate for a high-level GOP or (retired) Iraq veteran to respond as follows -

"We do not always agree with this administration, but when they are right, they are right. Truly the current state of affairs is a titanic victory for the Obama administration. And I would like to be the first to acknowledge that. I want to thank President Obama for his extraordinary courage in choosing to confront and defeat one of history's most odious monsters. I want to thank President Obama for his outstanding dedication to completing a difficult but worthy mission, for his willingness to order a surge in US effort that surely ranks with Guadalcanal and Inchon in the annals of US military history. I want to thank President Obamaa for staring down the naysayers and the international detractors, for never taking his eye off the ball, and for standing up for the troops, letting them know from moment one that he has had their back.

Above all, on behalf of thirty million Iraqis, I want to thank President Obama for liberating them from the yoke of horrendous tyranny, and opening a whole new and better chapter for a vast swath of the troubled Middle East.

And lastly, I want to thank President Obama for all he has done for Iraq over the past year especially, specifically and particularily for the.... um... things..... that, uh..... he has done in the past year..... which were.... um.... good things that, uh.... he has specifically done. The good things, I mean. Whatever they may have been.

Thank you, President Obama, for your years-long dedication to freedom, to liberty, to our troops, and to this mission - a great and good one. We could not have done it without you. The victory is yours, and you have earned it. May God Bless the troops, and the United States of America."

With regard to Iraq, the only thing the Obama administration can take credit for is that they didn't do anything to make the situation substancially worse. Can the same be said about the economy? Nope.

Tina S...it would be wrong ... (Below threshold)
Justrand:

Tina S...it would be wrong to give Obama ANY of the credit for a success in Iraq. See my baseball analogy..it is VERY apt in this case. A "relief pitcher" who takes over a game where the his team is more than 3 runs ahead CANNOT get credit for the win...only for the lose (if they lose)

Obama did NOTHING to help win in Iraq...in fact he did everything he could to tear down the effort before he became President.

As for the economy...he has made it WORSE, demonstrably so, in his time in office. Back to baseball:
Obama came in DOWN 3 runs...and has promptly given up 5 more! Bush cannot get the "W" for this...but Obama can get the "L".

"So Obama should take owner... (Below threshold)
Eric:

"So Obama should take ownership of the bad economy but not the outcome of Iraq?"

Yes. Congress has far more impact on the economy than the President does. Congress has been controlled by the Democrats since Jan 2007, and Obama was a Senator during that time. Since the Democrats took over Congress the national debt has skyrocketed, and unemployment has shot up. As President, Obama promoted and signed a stimulus law that was supposed to stop unemployment at 8%. It rose to 10%. So why shouldn't he get ownership of the economy? He's had a hand in the economy since he became a U.S. Senator.

As far as Iraq, Obama repeatedly criticized the surge and all of Bush's Iraq policies.
Obama has done NOTHING to deserve any credit for the current success in Iraq.

I don't see where Biden or I have expressed a "long term optimism", Dave - at lest not in the quote Mallow used.

Biden seeks to take credit for

1)You're going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer.

and

2) You're going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government.

Says who? The U.S. Department of Defense in this September 2008 report issued 2 months before Obama's election.

Trends across the security, political and economic landscape of Iraq continue to improve, but the fundamental character of the conflict remains unchanged, according to a Defense Department report submitted to Congress yesterday.

The improved security in Iraq has opened the doors for dialogue between the leading parties in the country's government and communities and has made room for other institutional developments. But results are still tenuous and long-term stability will only be realized if the Iraqi government continues to build its legitimacy and take on existing challenges, the report says.

Without the troop withdrawal that is now moving forward under the Obama administration you'll never see the Iraqi government step up the plate and solving it's own problems, thereby building the "legitimacy" the DoD says was lacking throughout the Bush administration.

Upset Old Guy:

You know Tina, maybe that's right.

But tell me, how long of an interval after hearing the words, "I inherited", or , "previous eight years" do we need to wait before we know that The Won has actually taken ownership of the bad economy? So far I haven't noticed any decline in his use of those phrases. Either you're the President or you're not. Can't be just a little bit pregnant. Can't just claim any successes and sluff off all the failures. So when is he going to accept responsibility for the economy?

Then we can measure his contribution was to the war in Iraq.

Hey Steve,

No wonder you're an artist!

Just wondering.. Since I've been away with some medical issues, I would assume that, as the foremost resident liberal racist here at Wizbang, you've had a bit more time come up with an answer to why you decided to use race in your following post:

-----------------------------------------------

"The silent acceptance of the rising price of gasoline just goes to show another line in the list of double standards pertaining to coverage of and criticism which has been and continues to be levied at President Bush."

You conspiracy-theory loonies are getting wackier an wackier.

Gasoline prices are rising slowly rather than jumping quickly as they did several years ago.

That, plus the obvious, glaring fact that gasoline is still cheaper than it was back in the $4 days -- and the obvious, glaring fact that we've had gasoline at these prices before so it's nothing new - all adds to consumer complacency.

Either that or that black man in the White House is doing voodoo on you. BOO! lol...

I'll wait for Sarah Palin's Fox News report to find out just how much voodoo is at work here.

Meanwhile get a new tin-foil hat.

The one you're wearing is a little cock-eyed.

The troops can come home because they successfully secured the country enough to get the government functioning.

Your logic is that the government is functioning because the troops are leaving.

That doesn't make sense. Why would the Iraqi government start to function on the promise that the troops will leave in the future?

Steve,
It was my understanding that efforts at troop withdrawals were in the works prior to Obama taking office. The Iraqi government was pushing it. I think Biden's gift for hyperbole is well known and you suggest by your writing
.....

"If Bush were still in office you would not see 90,000 troops marching home by the end of summer, and you would not see Iraq actually moving towards a representative government. We'd be bogged down in the Bush quagmire for another decade."

...that you believe him. As the spring comes to Iraq, if the security situation changes I do not believe you will see 90,000 troops marching home. Then what? ObamaBiden reverts to blaming the Bush administration for poor security training? I cannot think of any administration - Republican or Democrat - that the more it talks the more idiotic it looks.

But beyond that, Bush Elective War is greatly responsible for the economic malaise we face today (every war has its depression/hangover---check me out), and Obama JUST MIGHT (though I won't hold my breath) get us the hell out. And the one who does, gets the credit----remember: the neocons were projecting a 40 year occupation in 2005. They would secretly wish for same now----but they're too discredited to tout it.

Bush's Iraq strategy was based on con man, Ahmed Chalabi, who was to form a pre-fabricated puppet regime. (He went "ashore" with the landing parties)

Bush fired generals who clashed with Chalabi's version of the future.

Very soon, the CIA found it had to construct an elaborate narrative to justify the shocking truth that Ahmed Chalabi needed to be (and was) arrested as a con man. The best the CIA could do to ameliorate the shocking events was to elevate Chalabi into Master Criminal on a level with Sherlock Holmes' arch-nemesis, Moriarty.

Which still left Bush as the patsy, so a series of helo-offensives were activated, with insufficient logistical support, resulting in Vietnam-style symbolic victories followed by terrain withdrawal. 4 years of quagmire set it.

Up-bolding? That's a new one. Sad, but new.

The point is, bry, that Biden and Obama have not accomplished or are not responsible for one thing which they can claim credit as per anything positive that has come or will come from Iraq.

"I just think it's the absolute wrong strategy," Biden said Tuesday of an increase in troops(the surge). (Dec. 26, 2006. )

"I am not persuaded that 20,000 additional troops in Iraq is going to solve the sectarian violence there; in fact, I think it'll do the reverse." (Barack Obama, Early 2007)

Such visionaries.

Let's see.

-I am very optimistic about -- about Iraq.

OK. Great! So are we!

-I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration.

Huh? You're refering to the Bush administration, right? On what grounds do you base this statement, Joe? You and Obama have done nothing to add to the progress made in Iraq. NOTHING!

-You're going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer.

Who says? You just sent 30,000 more troops to Afganistan. You said Gitmo was going to be closed- last month. You said the stimulus needed to be passed immediately to create jobs and avoid double-digit unemployment. You can't get anything done in Congress even though your lackeys have controlled it for 3 years, the last of which you had a super-majority. Conditions improved in Iraq despite your best efforts to derail them.

-You're going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government.

Again, if this indeed occurs, it will have been a direct result of Bush administration decisions, and a damning rebuke of your own myopic policies.

Now, about that "up-bolding" again?

In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7/11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking. Joe Biden

In conversation with American-Indian political activist in 2006, he was later slammed for making insensitive and inappropriate remarks.
