    So the problem here, then, is that Obama simply couldn't convince Iraqi leadership to budge on a hard-line policy that Bush agreed to before Obama took office.

    Then why did you ask?

    Poor Obama.... How could he be so unlucky to have to follow such masterminds like GWB.

    Since we don't have a time machine they're off the table.

    We can only do what we can do now and in the future.

    I think that's just a cheap shot at the Reverend Jeremiah "God damn America" Wright, the Obamas' preacher of twenty years. You are mocking his claim that America brought 9/11 on itself. I'll bet you don't believe rape victims asked for it by wearing sexy clothing, either! Next you'll be trying to say there's something wrong with being a leftist who despises America, resents Jews, and pals around with Black Muslims like Louis Farrakhan.

    I'm sure you agree with me that it was wrong of the U.S. to have kept troops in Germany, South Korea, and Okinawa all these years, even though the host countries often objected to it pretty strongly. Our national security should never have been a higher priority for any U.S. President than complying with the wishes of every government of Germany, Japan and South Korea through the decades.

    Reactionary warmongers like Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan lacked the exquisite cultural sensitivity of the cosmopolitan Barack Obama. Thank God we have evolved from those bad old pro-America days. When a foreign politician objects to the having U.S. forces in his country, Mr. Obama just tells them he can't stand the U.S. or its military, either, and agrees to do exactly what the foreigner asks.

    2-4. I see no denial of facts, which means you must accept them, yet still continue your blatant shilling.
    I know where Kobie lives, he lives in a state of denial.

    If only the Iraqis had been American voters Obama and his regime could have lied to them and passed legislation in the middle of the night...

    He failed to lead and Iraq hangs in the balance. In some places we view people based on what they accomplish. With Obama supporters no failure is too great to tarnish him. Why is that?
