Joe Biden sees Iraq success for President Obama

BAGHDAD — Vice President Joe Biden said after a three-day trip to Baghdad that the American people will see President Barack Obama’s Iraq policy as a success when the “combat mission” ends on schedule Aug. 31. Biden said the administration “will be able to point to it and say, ‘We told you what we’re going to do, and we did it.’”

“I think America wins,” Biden told POLITICO in an end-of-trip interview at the ambassador’s residence in the sprawling U.S. Embassy complex. “I sound corny, but I think America gets credit here in the region. And I think everybody gets credit, from George Bush to [President Obama].

“I think Americans will recognize that there aren’t body counts ... that they got 95,000 people home. That will be noticeable that they’re home."

The chief purpose of Biden’s visit was to prod Iraqi politicians to form a government and end a four-month stalemate that followed parliamentary elections. The vice president said security in the country “doesn’t really relate to whether there’s a government formed or not.”

“The government that is the interim government now — a little like our interregnum period between November and January — is actually functioning in terms of security,” he said. “I am hopeful — I am confident — that in the relatively near term, they’re going to be able to work out an agreement on ... the new government.”

Well plugs...since it’s a success and your bringing the troops home....instead of a handshake and kick out the door....put them on the border when they get here.

"That will be noticeable that they’re home."

Yeah. In the unemployment lines. Barry flushed their chances of getting civilian jobs.

He's not BSing the Iraqis. Or us either. The Iraqis named a street in Baghdad George W. Bush Boulevard.

And when Field Marshal Gen. Petreaus fixes Afghanistan, there will be a street named after him too.

Since those written languages look like graffiti in a NY subway toilet stall, maybe I can learn to read them.

There can’t be much arrogance or hypocrisy in the general population. The left has it ALL!! After attacking the war for years and declaring it LOST, Hussein and his buffoon VP want to claim credit for victory. Incredible, ain’t it.

“Obama inherited the Iraq success.”

Exactly. This administration is quick to blame GWB for all the things that have gone wrong, yet taciturn when it comes to giving GWB credit for successes. The reality is, had we followed Barack Obama’s advice on Iraq (pullout by 2008), we never would have had the chance to enjoy our success there. But don’t expect Biden or Obama to acknowledge “Bush was right, we were wrong about the surge strategy in Iraq.”

It makes perfect sense in ObamaWorld: Iraq is an Obama success and the economy is a Bush failure. It’s so clear to me now.

Obama had NOTHING to do with the victory in Iraq.

Iraq was won before the 2008 election.

Otherwise, Obama would have screwed it up.

Obama is such a failure that these scumbags are trying to grab onto anything that they can claim as a success - but Obama had nothing whatsoever to do with Iraq.

Even if he'd wanted to (and he didn't), he simply doesn't have what it takes.

Iraq is Bush's victory. And Petraeus's.

You can count on Mikey Allen from leftico to peddle such utter fifthly lies for his Marxists and the stooge.
Mikey wife is a Dem Party employee and she sends these faxes over to MIkey to publish between his water gun fights and BBQ with Biden and the Commie.
Seriously Mikey had a water gun fight with the village idiot VP two weeks ago and attended the Commie's 4th of July event !

Except you "we" folk said you were going to do it the first thing 0bama is elected. That means you're gonna be about 22 months passed the "able to point to it" point, Joe.

As though ANYone in history, save a few ultra-left 0bama suck-ups will credit anything in Iraq to *0bama's policy* re. Please already.
