This lame mutherfucker doesn’t have the integrity to own up to his failures and half-assed decisions. He can’t even keep his stories straight.
One of the main issues throughout both of his campaigns was total withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq and how that was going to be one of his crowning achievements.
The president who spent years touting the withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Iraq suddenly has had to distance himself from that action.
At the White House on Saturday morning — less than 48 hours after authorizing airstrikes against Islamist militants and humanitarian air drops to save the lives of trapped Iraqi civilians — Obama blamed his predecessor, George W. Bush, for the absence of American troops in Iraq and rejected the assertion that he could have left a small peacekeeping force in the war-torn nation.
He uttered those after three years, and a successful re-election campaign, in which the full removal of U.S. forces from Iraq was cast as this White House’s most significant foreign policy achievement and one Obama had promised all the way back to the earliest days of his first presidential campaign in 2008.
……“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,” Obama told reporters just before leaving for a two-week vacation on Martha’s Vineyard. “So let’s just be clear: The reason that we did not have a follow-on force in Iraq was because the Iraqis — a majority of Iraqis did not want U.S. troops there, and politically they could not pass the kind of laws that would be required to protect our troops in Iraq. So that entire analysis is bogus and is wrong. But it gets frequently peddled around here by folks who oftentimes are trying to defend previous policies that they themselves made.”
What. The. Fuck? In 2011, you withdrew all the troops including any follow-on units that could have remained in place to provide security. You made the decision, asshole. Now you’re running from it because Iraq is collapsing in the face of the very Al Qaeda groups you claimed were “JV”. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were won before you were installed the first time, and over the last 5 1/2 years, you flushed everything we accomplished.
Well, now that Iraq is being swallowed by ISIS, the flippant little crapweasel doesn’t want to take responsibility (nothing new) for his short-sighted tactics.
Obama has blamed Bush for everything from the trillions of dollars he added to the national debt, to his lousy economy, to the rest of his failed socialist trainwreck.
In fact, George W. Bush warned against withdrawing troops from Iraq too early.
Obama is a narcissistic, pathological, inept, incompetent lying SCOAMF. He’s either convinced himself that the world will bend to his delusions of grandeur, or he totally knows he’s an epic fail, but simply doesn’t care.
Good thing he can’t run for another term. Just think of the fucking mess he’d inherit.
