    Why anyone would try to defend this serial liar defies all logic.
    This is a common tactic with republicans. When you are caught in a lie, just continue to deny it and put forth a well-orchestrated story to the contrary regardless of facts. With the help of hollow-headed talking heads, aka Rush Limbaugh and company, and eventually the lemmings will memorize this talking point.

    Irrelevant. Campaign promises aren't law. So I ask you again: Who drew the withdrawal plan and constrained us to December 31st, 2011 withdrawal date? I'll wait for you to answer.

    Yeah it pisses me off too. Most of them don't have to actually deploy when the decision is made so its easy for them to volunteer others.

    Obama wants Iraq to fail, so he can blame it on Bush. Hence the reason he's letting everything go to ****. Stay honest Hatuy.

    You mean, it didn't fail for those 6 years the Bush administration was involved in it? Boy, you're definitely an optimist. It's a shame you ignore the fact that it was entirely dependent on us for security, it failed to establish a stable political system and the politicians who were put in charge completely ignored everything the US said. Yeah, but it wasn't a failure from the moment the US set foot there. As I said, stay honest apdst.

    "I promised to end the war and that's what I did"...sound familiar?
