Obama: Can’t Get Iraq Policy Right!
Barack Obama doesn’t really know what to say to who when it comes to his policy on Iraq. He has made it more than obvious that he says what he thinks he needs to in order to get elected. He flip-flops according to the response from the press. Obama hasn’t learned how to hold true to some principles while dancing around all of the rest like seasoned politicians do.
Most Obama supporters think he wants to pull out of Iraq completely. He has said, “…that I would bring our troops home in the pace of one to two brigades per month and that that pace we would have our combat troops out in 16 months.” All of you Democrats: did you see the most important part of this statement? COMBAT TROOPS! How many of Obama’s so-called residual troops will remain? Has any asked that question? Will he even answer it? He doesn’t know.
Another thing most Obama supporters don’t realize or want to talk about: Obama’s voting results on puling out of Iraq. Obama has not been very consistent with pulling out as he talks on the campaign trail. In fact Obama has voted both against the withdrawal of troops from Iraq (on June 22, 2006) and for forcing the withdrawal of troops by cutting off funding for military operations in Iraq (on May 24, 2007 and Nov. 16, 2007). This is odd coming from a presidential candidate that is playing on the Iraq war as grounds for getting elected. What will he do different next?
I’m sure once he gets elected, he will flip-flop again. He has already set us up for it. When asked about how many troops will remain, what kind of counter-terrorist strike force will we have, and other questions like how many trainers and researchers will be necessary, he didn’t have any other answer than, “Those are all issues that obviously are going to be determined by the facts on the ground.” It sounds like he is saying, “Once we start pulling out like I said we would in order for me to win the election, I might change my mind and do something completely different!”
I want to applaud and thank Obama supporters. We must have some ignorant, uneducated supporters out there otherwise I would have nothing to write about!
I ask anyone to please respond! I want someone to tell me I’m wrong! I want a true Obama supporter to bash all of my comments. At least then, I may find out what Democrats and Obama really stands for!
