    That is the way it will be remembered in 2012.

    With that said, I would prefer a much quicker withdrawal, but I had a choice between 16 months that one candidate offered versus 50, maybe 100 years that the other candidate offered.

    You really do not have a clue, do you? Obama was bound by the Bush agreement. I don't know why someone continues to embarrass themselves and continues to buy what they are told by the leftwing blogs.

    I posted the 9/11 Commission actual posted results which obviously the left didn't like and neither do you.

    Dav posted the actual details of the agreement that Bush signed and again you prefer what the left told you

    One of these days the lightbulb is bound to go off in that head of yours that the left has provided you with false, biased information that makes the true believers look like loons.

    It took the Pentagon 4 months to develop plans from Obama's Jan 21 order. !6 months from when withdrawal plans were ready has the last of the combat troops out by Aug. 2010.
    It started under Bush

    Bush announces withdrawal of 8,000 US troops from Iraq | World news | guardian.co.uk


    eorge Bush will today announce the withdrawal of 8,000 combat troops from Iraq and an increase in US forces in Afghanistan.

    In remarks prepared for delivery to the US National Defence University, and released by the White House late last night, the US president bracketed Pakistan with the other two countries as major battlegrounds in the so-called war on terror.

    The troop cut for Iraq will probably be Bush's last major decision in a highly unpopular war that has seen his ratings plummet.

    There are around 146,000 US forces in Iraq. A marine battalion, of about 1,000 troops, would go home on schedule in November and not be replaced. An army brigade of between 3,500 and 4,000 troops would leave in February. About 3,400 support forces will also go home over the next few months.

    As for Afghanistan, Bush will send roughly 4,500 troops to face a resurgent Taliban. More than half of Bush's address will be devoted to Afghanistan as he outlines a "quiet surge" of additional American forces there, bringing the US presence to nearly 31,000.

    "For all the good work we have done in that country, it is clear we must do even more," Bush said.

    The US president announced that a marine battalion scheduled to go to Iraq in November would go to Afghanistan instead, and that would be followed by an army combat brigade. His speech also highlights decisions to vastly increase the size of the Afghan national army, which will grow from its current size of 60,000 troops to 120,000, instead of 80,000.

    You have to do better than this.

    The same can be said about the Democratic Party that I belonged to for years. It has been taken over by leftwing loons who capitalize on the people that think solely with their hearts and never their brain. I didn't leave the Democratic Party, it left me. One of these days a lot of good people are going have that lightbulb go off in their head and come to the same conclusion. Hope it isn't too late.

    You would probably prefer a Michael Savage poll.

    Keep projecting and showing that you haven't a clue. I have never listened to Michael Savage but that doesn't stop you from assuming.

    I am a conservative that learned to "trust but verify" something apparently foreign to you. You cite the Daily Kos poll and seem to believe that has credibility. All polls depend on the questions asked and the form of those questions. You assume they are accurate because you want them to be accurate. The only true poll that matters are the results from the election polls.

    Obama and the radical left appeal to a declining base today as evidenced by the election results from MA., N.J., and Va. Keep spouting the leftwing rhetoric as it appears to be working for you. The support for Obama continues to drop as does the support for the radical leftwing agenda.
