Obama to troops: “You got the job done” in Iraq

posted at 6:08 pm on February 27, 2009 by Allahpundit

No need to respond with the obvious point; Romney already made it eloquently today at CPAC. Here’s The One’s surreal address at Camp Lejeune this morning, announcing a hard and fast deadline of August 31, 2010 for the end of our “combat mission” in Iraq. Does that mean all combat troops are out by that date? Maybe not: Rep. John McHugh was reassured by Obama himself that the plan will change as the security situation does. And so the fine line between a timetable strategy and a conditions-based strategy grows finer still. No wonder the GOP’s happy with it.

If you’re not up for 28 minutes of Obamamania, I encourage you to read the transcript. Against all odds, I think this is the best speech The One’s delivered yet — despite the fact that it is, as I say, utterly surreal. Remember, this is the guy who said last summer that if he had it to do over again, he’d still oppose the surge; who declared the dream of Iraqi democracy hopeless in November 2006; and who insisted in 2002, at the end of the anti-war speech celebrated by progressives far and wide, that troops killed in Iraq will have died in vain. That was candidate Obama. Today it’s commander-in-chief Obama, so we get stirring passages like this:

Thanks in great measure to your service, the situation in Iraq has improved. Violence has been reduced substantially from the horrific sectarian killing of 2006 and 2007. Al Qaeda in Iraq has been dealt a serious blow by our troops and Iraq’s Security Forces, and through our partnership with Sunni Arabs. The capacity of Iraq’s Security Forces has improved, and Iraq’s leaders have taken steps toward political accommodation. The relative peace and strong participation in January’s provincial elections sent a powerful message to the world about how far Iraqis have come in pursuing their aspirations through a peaceful political process…

Now, before I go any further, I want to take a moment to speak directly to the people of Iraq.

You are a great nation, rooted in the cradle of civilization. You are joined together by enduring accomplishments, and a history that connects you as surely as the two rivers carved into your land. In years past, you have persevered through tyranny and terror; through personal insecurity and sectarian violence. And instead of giving in to the forces of disunion, you stepped back from a descent into civil war, and showed a proud resilience that deserves respect.

Our nations have known difficult times together. But ours is a bond forged by shared bloodshed, and countless friendships among our people. We Americans have offered our most precious resource – our young men and women – to work with you to rebuild what was destroyed by despotism; to root out our common enemies; and to seek peace and prosperity for our children and grandchildren, and for yours…

And so I want to be very clear: We sent our troops to Iraq to do away with Saddam Hussein’s regime – and you got the job done. We kept our troops in Iraq to help establish a sovereign government – and you got the job done. And we will leave the Iraqi people with a hard-earned opportunity to live a better life – that is your achievement; that is the prospect that you have made possible.

I can only assume he says “you” instead of “we” because even an ego as robust as Obama’s won’t tolerate credit-sharing on a project he inveighed against for so long.

Skip ahead to 25:20 and at least watch his tribute to Cpl. Jonathan Yale and Lance Cpl. Justin Haerter, two heroes who, evidently, didn’t die in vain after all. “Semper fidelis” indeed.

What do you mean “we,” Mr Surge-denier?

I will admit it comes off better in print than it did when delivered in that arrogant, clipped, almost-angry tone the child-president adopts.

But it was still a load of BS.

Here’s The One’s surreal address at Camp Lejeune this morning, announcing a hard and fast deadline of August 31, 2010 for the end of our “combat mission” in Iraq. Does that mean all combat troops are out by that date?

I happen to know of a combat unit currently scheduled to deploy to Iraq in late spring 2010. I’ve been trying to square that circle for about two weeks with no luck.

BadgerHawk on February 27, 2009 at 6:16 PM

Remember, this is the guy who said last summer that if he had it to do over again, he’d still oppose the surge; who declared the dream of Iraqi democracy hopeless in November 2006; and who insisted in 2002, at the end of the anti-war speech celebrated by progressives far and wide, that troops killed in Iraq will have died in vain.

Let’s repeat what Romney said:

On the day Obama announces plans to pull troops from Iraq, Romney praises the plan but renews the attack on Obama’s opposition the the surge:

“It is in spite of Barack Obama’s stance that the troops are coming home in victory — not because of it,” he told CPAC.

Obama makes me ill.

I’m going to keep that last paragraph Allah quoted on file so I can bring it out every time a liberal even hints that we “lost” the war or that it is was a failure.

Classy of Obama to go further in acknowledging success than I ever expected. Still, I’d like him to declare victory on Sept 1, 2010.

this is a good thing, once you get over the surreal part. Of course you understand the cynical left is laughing that Obama is throwing some meat and duping the knuckle dragging right. With that said that policies are good in regards to Iraq right now.

Read Obama’s book – his own words – he was adopted in Indonesia, and he carried an Indonesian passport as an adult. Then read the Constitutional citizenship requirements for POTUS. Obama DOES NOT qualify. Only the Supreme Court can enforce the Constitution and they are giving Obama a ‘pass” (at least for now) because of political blowback from taking on Bush v. Gore in 2000.

No one can refute ONE fact I have stated… Obama himself ADMITS he was a citizen of Indonesia. Case closed – ineligible for POTUS. It’s that simple – forget the birth certificate.

searcher484 on February 27, 2009 at 6:50 PM

Words for the wise:
Obama says whatever his audience wants to hear. When he was such a genius by saying that we shouldn’t go to Iraq, he was talking to an anti-war rally in Chicago.
When he had an interview with a Christian magazine, “oh, uh… I go to church 3 times a month,” then when we find out that his pastor is racist, “well, how should I know. I’m only there 1-2 times a month”
He’s not dumb… he knew what reverend Wright was all about. He just stayed at that church for political reasons.

Glenn Jericho on February 27, 2009 at 6:51 PM

FYI – the Obama “birth certificate” shown on his web site is not authentic. First of all. there were no computer-printed certificates in 1961, the year Obama was born. So why does he have a computer-printed birth document, when real birth 1961 birth certificates were produced with typewriters? In addition, an authentic birth certificate states the name of hospital of birth, the name of the attending physician (with signature), and the address of the parents. The document Obama presents as his “birth certificate” does not contain any of that essential information. Why?

Why does Obama have a team of lawyers whose sole duty is to prevent access to his immigration, U.S. naturalization, passport and college records? Why has he sealed those records from all public access? Why has he spent over $800,000 in legal fees already to hide his personal records? What information is he so desperate to hide from the American public?

Keep it up, searcher. I think it is important for all to know how much the Precedent is hiding. Hopefully, the suit by the military personnel (now joined by a retired general) will force the courts to look at the legitimate arguments that the idiot messiah is ineligible.
