Obumbo is a bit late.
The war pretty much ended before he took office, but the Marxist clown will take credit for anything he can.

Osama Bin Laden didn't die before he took office did he? Along with 22 other Al Qaeda leaders.

What does Bin Laden have to do with Iraq?
I think you are a bit confused.
Obviously, since you can not compose a logical question.

The only MARXISTS operating in American politics are the LYING NEO-CONSERVATIVES, who are actually (yes, it is true) failed Marxists.)

Is it because Bush never should have gone to Iraq in the first place?

You sound like sour grapes.

Is it because Bush's father President George HW Bush gave Saddam Hussain permission to kill his own people at will?

Is it because the lying neo-conservatives let Osama Bin Laden go free at Tora Bora, after our Army and Marines had surrounded him?

Is it bacause Condaliza Rice allowed 9/11/2001 to occur in the first place through her gross incompetance?

Is it because President Obama has wrapped all this up in less than FOUR YEARS?

Is it because President Obama has saved us from Bush's Great World Depression?

Or are you just stupid?
Or just richer than Crassus?

Attention mr_bill ayers!!! b. h. obama called the Iraq War "dumb." That statement disqualifies b. h. obama for CINC unless you're a Yes We Can sucker who stands for nothing and falls for anything.
Thankfully President GW Bush and The Magnificent United States Military removed Saddam and his sons otherwise there would be a nuke race or a nuke collaboration going on about now between Iraq and Iran. That means today’s little kids would grow up to face a much, much more deadly and costly war. Obviously You and your self-serving democRat ilk have no problems passing your responsibility off to snot nosed little American kids.
Your attempts to demonize people by calling them exactly what you and obama clearly are shows you need mental help, you libelous bozo.

While US Troops were on the battlefield congressional democRats were giving aid and comfort to the enemy…

• Democrat John Kerry, Feb. 2007: "The simple fact is that sending in over 20,000 additional troops isn't the answer--in fact, it's a tragic mistake. It won't end the violence; it won't provide security; ...it won't turn back the clock and avoid the civil war that is already underway; it won't deter terrorists, who have a completely different agenda; it won't rein in the militias."
• Democrat Dennis Kucinich, Feb. 2007: "It has been proven time and time again that troop surges don't work."
• Democrat Harry Reid, Apr. 2007: "The war is lost... This surge is not accomplishing anything."
• Democrat Christopher Dodd, Apr. 2007: "We don't need a surge of troops in Iraq... there is no military solution in Iraq. To insist upon a surge is wrong."
• Democrat Barack Obama, Jul. 2007: "My assessment is that the surge has not worked."
• Democrat Dick Durbin, Aug. 2007: "By carefully manipulating the statistics, the Bush-Petraeus report will try to persuade us that violence in Iraq is decreasing and thus the surge is working. Even if the figures were right, the conclusion is wrong."
• Democrat Jan Schakowsky, Aug. 2007: "I believe overall the surge is a failure....It’s clear to me we cannot win..."
• Democrat Joe Biden, Sep. 2007: "We should stop the surge and start bringing our troops home...[When asked whether Iraq closer to political reconciliation than before the surge began, and would continuing the operation stop the killing between Sunnis, Shi'ites and Kurds?]...The answer to both those questions is no."
• Democrat John Kerry, Sep. 2007: ""The president's escalation ... has failed to achieve its goal of bringing about a resolution of the fundamental conflict between Sunni and Shi'ite."
• Democrat Chris Dodd, Sep. 2007: "It pains me to say that ... the surge tactic is a failure — and that failure is reconfirmed everyday by unfolding events in Iraq."
• Democrat Barack Obama, Oct. 2007: "[The surge is a] complete failure... Iraq’s leaders are not reconciling. They are not achieving political benchmarks."
• Democrat Harry Reid, Nov. 2007: "It is indisputable that the goals of the surge have failed."
• Democrat Joe Biden, Nov. 2007: "This whole notion that the surge is working is fantasy."
• Democrat Nancy Pelosi, Feb. 2008: "There haven't been gains [in Iraq]... The gains have not produced the desired effect, which is the reconciliation of Iraq. This is a failure. This is a failure."
• Democrat Carl Levin, Apr. 2008: "...the purpose of the surge as announced by President Bush last year... has not been achieved"
• Democrat Joe Biden, Apr. 2008: "The purpose of the surge was to bring violence in Iraq down so that its leaders could come together politically. Violence has come down, but the Iraqis have not come together... We Democrats understand that this war must end..."
• Democrat Bill Richardson, Jun. 2008: "[when asked if he was ready to concede that John McCain had been right in proposing the surge, said] "Absolutely not."

Face the facts, following 9/11 Bin Laden was hiding from President GW Bush and The US Military and not from b. h. obama.
Obviously anyone who calls a massive undertaking like Operation Iraqi Freedom "dumb" doesn't have what it takes to get the job done or should they ever be CINC.
b. h. obama is a self-serving man unqualified for dogcatcher and was placed in the driver's seat by foolish voters. Many are marching around pointing fingers at everyone but themselves...pathetic.

Yes. Bin Laden...
Hiding at TORA BORA.

Why don't you find out how he escaped?

And, remember that Bush so quickly forgot all about Bin Laden, while he raided the US Treasury with his adventurism in IRAQ.

If it were true, they'd have been hanged for sedition, but it was just one of their MANY lies. They've also emboldened our enemies killing millions of Americans since our country's founding.

I know, and you oviously won't.

So, I'll tell you.
The White House (highest level) ordered the US Marines to stand down, and directed the US Army to stand down, while Donold Rumsfeld paid bribes to "local tribesmen" to grab Bin Laden; who simply paid them larger bribes.

Bush LET BIN LADEN GO FREE.

Your opinions are long in the tooth, and short in logic.

They are actually misdirectiions. You should run in a GOP primary. Or organize a KKK or tea-bag rally.

Wrong! See I knew you didn't know crap. Bin Laden got away before the US started landing large American forces in Afghan, so get it right. Bin Laden was cornerd in one area and the CIS that were enbetted into the Afaghan forces had him in their sites and stop the advancment for 3 days. That allowed him to get away. This had nothing to do with Bush or the Military.Pick up a book about ity and read. Try reading this and the fact that you constant assult on American troops shows what kind of person you really are.

None of which would have happened without Obama continuing the Bush doctrine and using intel gain thru enhanced interrogations, rendition, black sites, and the surge. In other words, the only thing Obama did new was change his stance on the way to fight the war once he became president.

It's one of many examples of his reckless political campaign, and why his popularity is so low. He promised everthing to everyone, and delivered nothing.

Very true. He will do more to set back racial relations in American than the KKK ever could have hoped for in lynching a black man.
