At VFW, Obama talks about promises kept politicalmugshot Posted by CNN Political Unit
(CNN) President Barack Obama on Monday emphasized the fulfillment of his promise to end the war in Iraq and pointed to his administration's work for veterans over the last three and a half years.
"Four years ago I made you a promise. I pledged to take the fight to our enemies and renew our leadership in the world. As president, that's what I've done," he said while speaking in Reno, Nevada at the 113th convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
Obama declared an end to the Iraq war in December, a decision he vowed to carry out during his 2008 presidential campaign.
"You don't just have my words, you have my deeds. You have my track record," he said. "You have the promises I've made and the promises that I've kept. I pledged to end the war in Iraq honorably, and that's what we've done."
The president also waded in to politics during his speech, pointing to the massive automatic defense cuts scheduled to kick in if Congress doesn't reach a deficit-reduction deal by the end of the year.
Congress voted for the debt deal last year that put in place a series of across-the-board spending cuts after a congressional super committee failed to reach a compromise on a comprehensive deficit reduction plan.

He also “promised” them to do away with DADT. I wonder why the boy was pimpin’ that achievement. That was bigger than the Iraq and Afghanistan thing.
>>”Four years ago I made you a promise. I pledged to take the fight to our enemies and renew our leadership in the world.”
“Well, I didn’t do that. But I did promise to fundamentally transform America, and today, we are poorer, with worse race relations, less prestige in the world, and my muslim brothers are moving in to take over when I’ve disarmed the bitter clingers.”
“That was a promise kept! So, bite me vets.”
did he mention queers.
cross dressing on base,
women in combat units on the front lines whiel they do a different physical test but the guys have to now be by their side
POLITICAL CORRECTNESS RUN AMOCK, people being promoted based on color, sex, and now where they stick their penis or if they wear a strap on.
How about mentioning to them that he has ignored the many Generals wishes and views and experience because queers, cross dressing etc are far more important, did he mention the gag order on the Chaplains about marriage?
I bet he never did he?
Just wrote this on another thread if you get the time.
Speaking of which I’ve just got back from the marine recruiting office as my oldest wanted to go.
\The marine asked me if I had questions and I told him that I did and went on to ask about will he be forced to share a room, share a shower or even a sleeping bag during survival training etc.
Lets put it this way the military now is nothing but a political correctness establishment and his reply was/
no sir he would never be forced to do anything like that and that would never happen or no one would ever come onto your son
I asked what guarantee could you give and what does he mean he would not be forced into sharing a room etc.
His reply was well, this would never happen and if your son felt he did not want to share a room then he would not do so etc etc etc.
Then said the members of the military would never do that , oh really how about Manning, marching in freak parades in uniform, 4 homo marines in CA who lied to get married quarters etc.
The marine was full of B/S who went on to tell me his record was serving 4 years with the President.
I asked that women have a different qualification to get in but can they serve along side my son to which he replied no they do the same physical except pulls ups, running and weight.
er that is different not the same and yes they can now go to combat along side my son even though they have not done the same physical tests.
One pull up to get in for a woman, two for a guy.
To finish training he said 4 pulls ups, 55 sits ups in two mins, and a 3 mile run in shorts , sneakers and shirt in 28 mins.
Hell I can still do that now, where as the British royal marine commando have to go 30 miles across cross country , swamps, marches and hills in 8 hours and carry their battle kit. Don’t allow women or women in combat
Just what on earth has happened to the Pentagon, the military etc?
Will Romney and the GOP have any guts to overturn this madness, hell no.
Spoke to a vet marine an hour ago and after I told him what this recruiting SGT told me the vet said he’s embarrassed how the military has turned
He promised to close Gitmo; still open.
He promised to end Afghanistan; deployments run at least thru 2014.
He promised the “most transparent administration”; F&F, LFBC, sealed records and transcripts...
He promised an end to special interests (hang on, I’m coughing)...
Please tell me my VFW comrades turned their backs on this Muslim mulatto.
I will increase your Tri-Care fee and reduce services I know that makes you proud that I am your nitwit in chief.
Promises kept? I bet that was a short speech. Did he forgo using a teleprompter? All he needed for this is a single sheet of poster board, 34x22.
Thems are some very happy service men/vets. (pictured in the article))
I pledged to take the fight to our enemies and renew our leadership in the world.
By bowing to Saudi leaders, supporting the Muslim Brotherhood, appeasing Iran, ignoring Assad, and turning his back on Israel?
