I'm surprised the self serving lord marshal b. h. obama did not try again to cash in on the credit that belongs solely to the men and women serving in The United States Military.
When it comes time to vote this November remember the back stabbers...
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....Its 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... Iraqs 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."
