Yesterday on Meet the Press, Tom Brokaw asked Joe Biden if the troop surge in Iraq had made possible the increased security and reconciliation we now see in that country. Here is Bidens answer:
SEN. BIDEN: No. The surge helped make thatwhat made is possible in Anbar province is they did what Id suggested two and a half years ago: gave local control.

Sorry Joe, nobody listened to you, as always, and they were rewarded for it, as always.
Plugs blovating again.
Our Troops and President Bush/John McCain have won this war with absolutely no help from the Cut&RunocRats. They were fighting for Defeat.
PRay for W, McCuda and Our Troops
Does this nimrod even think about his nonsensical answers before he makes them? Look, Plugs, if we’d given back control two and a half years ago, before the surge, Al-Qaeda would be running Anbar. The idea of the surge WAS to bolster the ability to give Iraqi control to the various regions.
It’s as if Biden was around during secession saying “we need to abolish slavery” but isn’t in favor of armed conflict to do so. Lincoln fights and wins the Civil War, to have Biden say “yeah, well, the War only allowed them to do what I said four years ago, which was free the slaves.”
It totally scares me that this idiot would be heartbeat away from the Presidency. And he’s bringing “foreign affairs knowledge” to the ticket?
What a surprise, Biden plagarizing again!
Correct... three Islamic caliphates versus one, middle-eastern democracy.
Just keep talking Joe, that’s all we ask of you.
Next he’ll be saying he invented the internet...
Wishing it so, rather than making it so.
OBiden is hoping that Woodwards book can make it true ... It won’t but keep hope alive.
Only a foll doesn’t know it was the troops who won the peace, they always do. I hope Bush has another victory rally in October.
Almost always, when a liberal wants to claim credit for an idea or bolster a bad one, they reverse the cause-effect logic of an argument.
Joe Biden: The surge has allowed us to allow more local control, not the other way around.
Al Gore: Atmospheric CO2 rises after global temperature rise, not the other way around.
Wasn’t it Gore and Biden who invented the corncob on a string ?
Biden, Murtha, Pelosi, Reid and the rest of the RATS have done everything they could to cut & run from Iraq, now this clown says we’re winning because of him, laughable!
Biden - WHO?!
I would expect nothing less from a plagarist.
Biden is taking credit to a plan he OPPOSED? Typical LIBERAL IDIOT!
Yo, Joe. Get with your running mate and get on the same page. Obama’s story is that the surge was more successful than anyone imagined and has provided stability.
BTW - Your running mate didn’t credit you with the current stability in Iraq. You might want to get him to start saying things like that.
