Pathological Liar Optimistic About War Inherited From President Bush
I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration.Nice try, Joe. The only idiot who looks more pathetic making that claim is the woefully inexperienced and increasingly lost president, but let's remain focussed on Biden for a moment. Here are just a few of the destructive comments he made about the war in Iraq, about President Bush, and about General Petraeus:
Associated Press, December 26th, 2006:
After a meeting with the President, Biden bragged that he had told Bush,
"Biden Vows to Fight Any Iraq Troop Boost", in which reporter Anne Flaherty wrote, "Sen. Joseph Biden, the incoming chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he will fight President Bush if the administration decides to send more U.S. troops to Iraq. Biden, who has his eye on the Democratic presidential nomination, also warned that if congressional Republicans do not join him in speaking out against Bush that they -- not Democrats -- will suffer in the 2008 elections. 'I just think it's the absolute wrong strategy,' Biden said Tuesday of an increase in troops."
"Mr. President, this is your war."Which remains true to this day, Joe, notwithstanding your recent hallucinations.
At a Democrat party barbeque on April 27th, 2007, a guest asked Biden, "When the president kills that bill on the first, what's going to be the next version of that bill that you are going to send him?" To which Sheriff Joe, whom nobody messes with, loudly replied,
The first thing I'm going to do is veto that bill and I'm going to take out that money for those MRAPs, those -- those vehicles to save lives over there. The idea we're not -- I gotta kid going over there -- the idea that we're not building new Humvees with the V-shaped thing is just crap, man! Kids are dying that don't have to die. The second thing we're going to do is shove it down [Bush's] throat.But he wasn't finished, not by a long shot, no sir.
Tim Russert to Sheriff Joe on Meet the Press, September 9th, 2007: "General Petraeus said in a letter to his troops, 'My sense is that we have achieved tactical momentum, have wrested the initiative from our enemies in a number of years in Iraq. We are, in short, a long way from the goal line but we do have the ball and we're driving down the field.' Is that what you expect him to say tomorrow?" Biden's reply:
He's dead, flat wrong. The fact of the matter is that there is -- that this -- uh -- this idea of the security gains we made have had no impact on the underlying sectarian dynamic. None. None whatsoever. Can anybody envision a central government made up of Sunni, Shi'a, and Kurds that's going to gain the trust and respect of 27 million Iraqis? There have been some tactical gains, but they have no ultimate bearing at this point on the prospect of there being a political settlement in Iraq that would allow American troops to come home without leaving chaos behind.In April 2007, Joe said in the Senate on the coming Surge,
Last night, like millions of my fellow Americans, I listened intently to the president of the United States lay out his new strategy for Iraq. We all hoped and prayed that the president would present us with a plan that would make things better. Instead, I fear, that what the president has proposed is more likely to make things worse.On March 14, 2007, Biden screamed to his colleagues,
What happens after we surge these women and men? And, by the way, [President Bush] said president -- General Petraeus is -- is one who believes -- He may be the only one who believes this is a good idea! Virtually, no one else think it's a good idea!Except it worked beautifully, so now it's Joe's Great Achievement.
Here's Joe's bottom line, his solemn pledge on Bush's Surge:
Ladies and gentlemen, the president's surge is not a solution. It is a tragic mistake, and I will do everything in my power to stop it.Here he is screaming again, still before the Surge inexplicably morphed from Bush's Tragic Mistake into Sheriff Joe's Great Achievement:
Meanwhile, back down Memory Hole Lane, here's Deeply Intellectual Anti-War Candidate Barack Hussein Obama on January 10, 2007:
This is a cycle of self-sustaining sectarian violence that 20,000, 30,000, 50,000, a hundred thousand Americans will not be able to stop!
I am not persuaded that, duh, 20,000 additional troops in Iraq is gonna, duh, solve the sectarian violence there. In fact I think it will do the reverse. I think it takes pressure off the Iraqis to arrive at the sort of political accommodation that every observer believes is the ultimate solution, duh, to the problems we face there.Really? "Every observer"? You got the names of all these "observers"? Because I'm pretty sure they didn't include President Bush, General Petraeus, the men and women on the ground in Iraq - you know: the adults. People who believe in victory rather than surrender.
Of course, Obama was just mouthing what the idiots wanted to hear from their Messiah.
Here's more from The One:
We cannot impose a military solution on what has effectively become a civil war. And until we acknowledge that reality, uh, we can send 15,000 more troops, 20,000 more troops, 30,000 more troops. Uh, I don't know any expert, uh, on the region or any military officer that I've spoken to, uh, privately that believes that that is going to make a substantial difference on the situation on the ground.Funny how Obama can only find "experts" who agree with him; he seems entirely unable to find anyone whose "expert" opinion does not corroborate his beliefs. Me? I find 'em every day.
But I digress.
How about this, the crown jewel of Obama's God-like powers of reasoning:
Preventing a potential genocide in Iraq isn’t a good enough reason to keep U.S. forces there.Let's read that again and savor its stunning inhumanity and cruelty;
Preventing a potential genocide in Iraq isn’t a good enough reason to keep U.S. forces there.That's right: like all useful idiots, Obama would have preferred to leave the Iraqi people to rot in Saddam's hell, to be murdered by the hundreds of thousands every year. From the vantage point of today, that would have meant the slaughter of millions of souls in the name of the idiot left's "progressive" ideal of ruthlessly ideological pacifism.
And where is all that "progressive" idealism now? The same two idiots who did everything in their power to assure America's defeat in Iraq now take credit for the successful completion of George W. Bush's War, handed to them just as the military, led by Bush and General Petraeus, was already mopping up and preparing to draw down. This surely removes any lingering doubts about the abject shallowness of these pathological liars, these petulent, unworthy clowns who shamelessly blame all their many failures on Bush and, even more to their discredit, attempt to abscond with his, and the American military's, greatest success in the War on Islamofascism.
Really, November cannot come soon enough, for so many reasons.
