Biden Tries To Take Credit For Iraq Again

Joe Biden sees Iraq success for President Obama

By: Mike Allen
July 5, 2010

BAGHDAD – Vice President Joe Biden said after a three-day trip to Baghdad that the American people will see President Barack Obama’s Iraq policy as a success when the “combat mission” ends on schedule on Aug. 31. Biden said the administration “will be able to point to it and say, ‘We told you what we’re going to do, and we did it.’”

The ‘surge’ which Messrs Obama and Biden both vehemently opposed led to the success of the combat mission. And the withdraw timetable that is now being followed was agreed to long before Mr. Obama was even elected.

But when has Mr. Biden ever let reality get in the way of one of his imbecilic claims?

“I think America wins,” Biden told POLITICO in an end-of-trip interview at the ambassador’s residence in the sprawling U.S. embassy complex. “I sound corny, but I think America gets credit here in the region. And I think everybody gets credit, from George Bush to [President Obama].

How gracious of him. Of course, neither he nor his boss deserve one iota of credit for any of this. They were on side of our country’s enemies on the war in Iraq, just as they usually are on every issue.

“I think Americans will recognize that there aren’t body counts . . .that they got 95,000 people home. That will be noticeable that they’re home." …

Biden said improved conditions in Iraq will bolster Democrats with voters in November.

“They are going to take a look and see that the president kept his promise getting troops home, which will give them more confidence in the foreign policy he set,” Biden said.

Among his other charms, Mr. Biden is simply a shameless pathological liar. But, then again, isn’t everyone in the Democrat Party a shameless pathological liar?

They must be, if they hope to run on this outrageous claim in November.

    “Mr. Biden is simply a shameless pathological liar”

    This one goes beyond that.

    It is a deliberate and flagrant distortion of a clear and proveable reality intended to persuade the entire world that the opposite of the truth is the real truth, in order to increase the power of the liars globally. It falls more into the realm of what the Nazis and Stalin tried to do with their deliberate attempts to rewrite history to their own advantage.

    It’s is closer to the Nazis claiming that they were provoked into defending themselves in WWII than to the delusions of psychopaths like Charles Manson.

    Why would Biden think Americas will see there weren’t body counts?

    Wouldn’t it have been better to honor & recognize American’s true hero’s that gave their lives, blood, sweat & tears to make the world a better place.

    Biden should willingly stand in the middle of a crowed Yankee stadium, bend over in his best suit, and let our U.S. soldiers & families of those that lost their loved ones kick his a** kicked. Because Biden is one big f***ing Jack A**.

    When the time comes, will Joe Biden be allowed to plead that he was “only following orders”? Or will he plead dementia?

    America’s national average IQ must have spiked 6.1 points over the holiday weekend while Biden was out of the country. Coincidentally, the average in Iraq plunged 14.6 points.

    Another wise ass taking credit for what others do.

    Amazing comments. In the real world anyone as disconnected from reality as Biden would be institutionalized. Biden is lucky he lives in the Neverland of Washington where is imbecilic statements are never questioned.

  6. canary says:

    First Obama said we would have residual troops left. Then he said all troops would come home. Biden just announced the date again of a major troop withdrawal.
    This puts our troops in such danger. And I don’t understand anyone shaking hands with Biden.
    I realize the troops don’t fully know what’s going on over there or here.
    The troops probably don’t know Biden said there was no body count, and that his main thoughts are on votes.
