It was an applause line during almost every campaign address made by Obama in 2012:
“I promised to end the war in Iraq, and I did.” ~ Barack Hussein Obama
America longs for the days when the President was an upstanding responsible adult who took responsibility for his actions. It’s time to remove this spoiled teenager from the White House.
YET ANOTHER OBAMA LIE.
President Obama has made a career of pouncing on opportunities while skillfully dodging accountability. The economy, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS scandal none of if, according to Obama, was his fault. When it came to killing Osama Bin Laden (after we discovered his whereabouts using interrogation techniques abhorred by the left), one would have thought Barack pulled the trigger himself in Pakistan based on how he spiked the football.
When it comes to Iraq, Obama has been a walking contradiction. He promised the left that if elected, he would end the war in Iraq in his first term. He failed.
Then, when it came time to remove troops, though common sense demanded otherwise, Obama announced the departure and promptly removed our troops to allow Iraq to be overrun by terrorists. He failed.
Now, with Iraq in shambles and Obama to blame, President Obama has begun to duck and dodge accountability once again and even asserted that it wasn’t “his decision” to remove troops.
As a matter of fact, that is precisely what a Commander-in-Chief does.
On Saturday, Obama refused accountability when a reporter asked,
“Mr. President, do you have any second thoughts about pulling all ground troops out of Iraq? And does it give you pause as the U.S.–is it doing the same thing in Afghanistan?”
Obama cravenly replied, (emphasis added) “What I just find interesting is the degree to which this issue keeps on coming up, as if this was my decision. Under the previous administration, we had turned over the country to a sovereign, democratically elected Iraqi government. In order for us to maintain troops in Iraq, we needed the invitation of the Iraqi government and we needed assurances that our personnel would be immune from prosecution if, for example, they were protecting themselves and ended up getting in a firefight with Iraqis, that they wouldn’t be hauled before an Iraqi judicial system.”
Thanks to a hilarious video compilation courtesy of The Washington Free Beacon, we can now see that not only was it Obama’s decision, but that he wouldn’t shut up about it.
Part of being a man is owning up to your failures. It seems that even by this meager test of character, Obama comes up wanting. Not only is Barack Obama a terrible president, he isn’t much of a man, either.
