I believe the words he used was "I will not be sending troops back into Iraq". "The will be no boots on the ground". Less than 24 hours later "Obama sends 275 Special Forces to Iraq" Yes I know they are going to the Embassy. Doesn't matter he lied, again!!!!

GOP Iraq Hypocrisy Hits Overdrive

Obama is ‘taking a nap’ as ISIS takes over? It was Boehner’s party that gave us this war, and it was Bush who negotiated the ‘peace.’ Is there anything they won’t play politics with?
The list of contenders for most offensive statement by a Republican over the last six years could stretch to Mars and back, even if printed out in small agate type. The one I’m about to cite may not take the gold, but I did a triple-cringe with a double gag when I heard John Boehner’s remark about President Obama “taking a nap” with respect to Mosul.


Here’s what he said Thursday:“It’s not like we haven’t seen over the last five or six months these terrorists moving in, taking control of western Iraq. Now they’ve taken control of Mosul. They’re 100 miles from Baghdad. And what’s the president doing? Taking a nap!”

Now, there are things to criticize Obama about here, goodness knows. His mishandling of the Syrian crisis—probably the most catastrophic and consequential error of his presidency, in my view—helped give rise to ISIS. As ever, he talked too big (it was an election year) about withdrawing from Iraq with honor and all that rot.

But please. It’s just so disgustingly dishonest of Boehner to talk like that. As we all know, it was Boehner’s party that gave us this war, with his own support back in 2002, when the House voted. Yeah, too many Democrats signed on to this hideous folly, but the war in Iraq was obviously a GOP production. If you remember the sound of the war drums at the time, you remember who was doing most of the beating on them.

And by the way—and a lot of people seem not to be remembering this over these last few awful days —the “peace” for which Obama is now being savaged by all the geniuses who were wrong about the war in the first place was a GOP production, too. Remember that press conference toward the end of his term when Bush got those shoes thrown at him? The purpose of that press conference, held in Baghdad, was for Bush and Nouri al-Maliki to announce that they’d come to agreement on a Status of Forces Agreement that dictated the terms of U.S. withdrawal from the country. The SOFA called for virtually all American forces to be gone by New Year’s Day 2012.

A little history on the SOFA: It was being negotiated after the surge had quelled daily violence to a considerable degree. But even so, more than 100,000 Iraqis had been killed, millions had been displaced or left their country, basic services in most cities were plenty iffy, and so on. Iraqis all of sects were desperate for the Americans to leave. So they negotiated a timeline that many Bushies thought too tight, but the pressure on the Iraqis was enormous to get the United States out. Iraqi negotiators insisted on more than 100 changes to the document. From Bush’s end, he basically had to take what the Iraqis gave him, because if he didn’t negotiate the 2012 deadline, all U.S. forces would had to have been gone by the end of 2008. That would have been a highly precipitous withdrawal and would have looked suspiciously like defeat. I’m so glad we had a “tough” president.

In other words, the timetable here was Bush’s, not Obama’s.

Should Obama have stuck to the negotiated timetable? Maybe not. But the Maliki government wasn’t exactly eager for a renegotiation. Neither were the American people. Sure, Obama wanted to be able to ca

mpaign in 2012 saying he’d gotten our forces out. But a renegotiation of the SOFA to keep up to 30,000 U.S. troops in Iraq for a longer period would have been extremely difficult politically, more so in Iraq than in the United States. And of course it goes without saying, although I’ll say it, that if Obama had negotiated such an agreement, John McCain and Boehner and Mitt Romney, instead of attacking Obama for keeping too few forces, would have attacked him for keeping too many.

He was busy with the family golfing and guffawing and grinning this past weekend. Then Bam!!! he comes back to the White House, picks up a newspaper and sees Iraqui's lined up and being executed. OMG!
But you stick with that Bush hangover thing...that's a good one. You might have even topped Obama as being naive, clueless and ineffective.
tsk, tsk, right wing site says....

The Iraq war elected Obama

By 2004, the American people were already turning against the war. The occupation was proving arduous. The weapons of mass destruction were nowhere to be found.

“With the benefit of minute hindsight, Saddam Hussein wasn’t the kind of extra-territorial menace that was assumed by the administration one year ago,” William F. Buckley, Jr., the dean of conservative columnists, said at the time.“If I knew then what I know now about what kind of situation we would be in, I would have opposed the war.”

But Bush was still able to be re-elected and Republicans retained Congress. The GOP enjoyed a 55 to 45 Senate majority.

The war stripped all of that away. As Iraq descended into chaos and sectarian strife, Bush’s approval ratings — soon buffeted by Hurricane Katrina — plummeted. By 2006, nearly 60 percent of the American people opposed the war. The exit polls found that about 80 percent of them voted for Democratic congressional candidates.

Democrats retook both houses of Congress. Nancy Pelosi won the speaker’s gavel. Harry Reid became Senate majority leader. Even before the recession or the financial crisis, a new liberal era was dawning just two years after pundits confidently predicted a permanent Republican majority.

That majority, if it ever existed, was lost in Baghdad. Former Republicans like Jim Webb became Democrats. The GOP shed the credibility on foreign policy it had gained with Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. The Democrats regained credibility they had lost with George McGovern.

Obama would never have been the Democratic nominee in 2008 if he hadn’t opposed the Iraq war while Hillary Clinton — along with Joe Biden, John Kerry, John Edwards, Joe Lieberman, Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, Dick Gephardt, and Steny Hoyer — voted for it.

Iraq became the litmus test issue for many antiwar voters in the Democratic primaries.

A freshman senator with only four years of experience in Washington may never have beaten the likes of Clinton and John McCain without the Iraq war.
