Obama, Biden and Iraq: Profiles In Perseverence

posted at 8:38 pm on February 11, 2010 by Mitch Berg

Whatever else we may say about the Administration, at least they held the line on Iraq.

When then-Senator Joe Biden had the opportunity to call for a withdrawal, and for the partition of Iraq into three states, thank goodness he held the line.

When then-Senator Obama had the option to vote with the rest of his party against the war, thank heavens Obama’s wisdom caused him to look past short-term polling and vote for perseverence.

And when the time came to fish or cut bait with the 2006 troop surge to exploit the newfound successes of the “Anbar Awakening”, thank the good Lord that Barack Obama and Joe Biden bet long and supported Gen. Petraeus’ plans and the efforts of our troops.

All that perseverence paid off during the 2008 Presidential Campaign, when both Obama and Biden bucked the left’s base and demanded resolution and perseverence in Iraq, that our sacrifices and those of the Iraqi people would not be in vain.

And so thank you, Vice President Biden.  Your claiming of credit on Larry King last night was so well-earned…

…I’m sorry. I can’t keep a straight face anymore.  I’m lying.

But then, so was Vice President Biden, when he actually claimed credit for the Administration on its stance in Iraq.

Andrew Malcolm in the LATimes:

Now, the Obama-Biden pair that opposed the Iraq war and its tactics and predicted their failure is prepared to accept credit for its success.

It seems that Biden, who’s from Delaware when he’s in Delaware and Pennsylvania when in Pennsylvania, is certain now that Iraq will turn out to be one of the Obama-Biden administration’s greatest achievements.

No, really.

Here’s how Biden put it to Lar:

I am very optimistic about — about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration. You’re going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You’re going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government.

I spent — I’ve been there 17 times now. I go about every two months — three months. I know every one of the major players in all the segments of that society. It’s impressed me. I’ve been impressed how they have been deciding to use the political process rather than guns to settle their differences.

Biden did not elaborate on what all the administration’s other “great achievements” were so far.

There’s your Hope and Change; Biden hopes you don’t notice he’s changed history.

I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration.

True.

MB4 on February 11, 2010 at 8:41 PM

If they can’t – and can’t is the right word and not won’t – give credit to Bush at least give credit to the troops and not arrogantly claims it’s a great achievement for the Administration.

Or de minimis say it’s a great achievement for the American and Iraqi people.

But nope, they have to take credit.

Cheap, real cheap.

SteveMG on February 11, 2010 at 8:42 PM

Americans know who earned credit for success in Iraq and his initials are G.W.B.

Something these two clowns actually did inherit from him and so it figures they want to steal it for themselves after opposing when not undermining the actual effort.

KittyLowrey on February 11, 2010 at 8:43 PM

Will Obama and Biden still be taking credit for Iraq in another year or two?

Wait and see.

MB4 on February 11, 2010 at 8:44 PM

As Steve says…and the troops!

The same goes for Plugs Biden.

De minimis isn’t the right term; at a minimum is the right phrase.

De minimis means insignificant.

And I actually took Latin too.

SteveMG on February 11, 2010 at 8:48 PM

I love it! I can never get enough of Biden.

He’s not entirely wrong, either: refraining from screwing up the victory in Iraq probably will be the best thing they end up doing.

sandberg on February 11, 2010 at 8:49 PM

These clowns have absolutely no shame or honor. The Iraq wind down established by Bush is the only thing they haven’t f’ed up

After all the lies and posturing including Harry Reid calling the war lost, Dick Durbin calling the effort akin to the Nazis, and the whole Democrat-run General Betray Us effort……

I find it offensive that this administration would take any credit for what happened in Iraq. They were decidedly part of the opposition from the beginning. How dare idiots like Biden claim even a little part of it now. It is unacceptable for these traitors to hang a mission accomplished banner and pretend they had anything to do with success. These bastards were the ones doing a happy dance in the aisles of Congress whenever a “milestone” death total was reached.

Before this administration came to power, most of its members including Joe Biden (Schumer, Emmanuel, Dodd, Murtha) and a group of other Dem scoundrels from 2003 – 2008) did every thing they could to lose the war in order to make Bush look bad. Scoundrelous all.

It’s a good time to point out that Biden is VP because Obama needed a serious adult on the ticket to provide the gravitas that doesn’t come when one is essentially a Chicago street thug with the right demographics to guilt the Dems into voting for an unfit candidate.

Obama would never have been the candidate if he was a fully white guy instead of a mixed race mutt with the ability to hide all traces of his upbringing and associations with Islam.

highhopes on February 11, 2010 at 8:59 PM

The GOP and George Bush should be on every TV station today exposing this fraud and calling for his resignation.

As long as we have such a pathetic and incompetant GOP, then Biden has every right to make fools of us like this.

gozzak on February 11, 2010 at 9:00 PM

Listening to Biden trying to give credit to Obama for winning the war in Iraq is like watching Theatre of the Absurd. Dishonesty and absurdity seem to be the operational concepts of the Obama regime.

When they come home, I think the troops deserve TWO victory parades.

Their Generals should ask for volunteers for the traditional one down Pennsylvania Avenue, in front of President Obama – but be prepared to have to order a couple thousand poor SOBs to march in it.

Also ask for volunteers to march on a dusty parade ground cleared on a ranch in Crawford, Texas – but be prepared for the outpouring of anger from disgruntled troops who are pissed because there is only room for a couple thousand to parade.

Biden, who’s from Delaware when he’s in Delaware and Pennsylvania when in Pennsylvania

My face is red admitting this, but I owned a house in West Side (Scrantonians know what I’m saying.) Greenridge had some family wealth but they were dolts as families – I hand to you the Bidens…

Later, I lived in Chester County along Rt 3 and 202 just minutes north of Delaware. Delaware reminded me of West Side. – I present to you, the Bidens.

Obviously there is no-one in charge! Pinnochio has spent every cent of his affirmative action political capital and has shown the Dems that at any given moment any one of them are disposable!
Everything is always all about Pinnochio even and especially when, he says it is not.
He has repeatedly lied to everyone and thus is not fit to lead anyone.
Having never lead rather just roused the rable he has no clue that he is worse than weak he is untrustworthy!

How long before the media concurrs? I think the Senate and House members may have by now, the ones who want to have jobs after the next election at any rate!

It’s too late. I fully expect the Republicans will take both houses now. This kind of disrespect of our troops, Bush and the intelligence of the American people simply will not be tolerated.

I don’t know how widely this will be seen but it is painfully obvious now to everyone that America made the biggest mistake it has ever made.

Even a dedicated Democrat would have a had time showing up to the polls just to continue this kind of torture.

petunia on February 11, 2010 at 10:52 PM

Unspeakably obscene. And any republican who stands by silently while the scum who did everything in their power to undermine and derail the Iraq war, slander our soldiers and smear the president without a shred of evidence now try to take credit for victory, that republican deserves their identical fate: eternity in Dante’s inferno. Knowing this was coming has done nothing to ease my disgust. Our military and George Bush paid for this victory as dearly as anything can be paid for, through their unyielding courage and determination, and for this corrupt two-bit wanker scum and his politically syphilitic entourage — who did everything they could within the reach of their political black arts to lose this war and to shame our president and nation and abandon the Iraqi people to the horrors of a killing fields all for political points — to try to take credit will prove to be the political-moral crime of the century. The fates will never forgive them.

Biden giving the Obama administration even a morsel of credit for freeing Iran and not crediting the troops, Bush and the American people?

Fine.

Obama and Biden are despicable and shameless* vermin.

*We used to have some field mice in the house and, apart from pooping in the drawers in the kitchen, they were kinda cute vermin, thus the need to further characterize Obama and Biden as not just vermin, but despicable and shameless vermin.

Carry on.

Obama calling for surrender in Iraq is why we won there.

Don’t be so sure.

Liberals will do and say anything in pursuit of furthering their agenda.

They have stood by silent while Obama has instituted most of Bush’s policies that they whined and cried about for years.

Obama’s left wing base has run with whatever talking points Axlerod and Gibbs feeds the press without so much as blinking an eye.

To the liberals,the end justifies the means.
The bar is never to low for democrats.

This is pretty much what makes up the democratic party now:

Is This What It Means To Be An Obama “Progressive?”

By Big Tent Democrat, Section Elections 2008
Posted on Wed Aug 13, 2008 at 04:05:15 PM EST

I am an Obama supporter. Who could not be when McCain is the other choice? But pols are pols and do what they do. That’s why I rip them all when they do the wrong thing, by my lights. For example, as Obama did on FISA Capitulation. But a new breed of Democrat and “progressive” is emerging. Glenn’s Greenwald’s interview with Mort Halperin allows us to coin a new phrase – a Halperin “Progressive.” What is a “Halperin” progressive? One who decides what the right position is for progressives based on what Barack Obama does.


Glenn writes:

[T]here was only one meaningful change that occurred between Halperin’s June 9 opposition [to FISA Capitulation] and his July 8 support [for FISA Capitualtion]: namely, it was in that interim — on June 20 — that Barack Obama announced that he would support the FISA bill . . .

What ever Obama wants and does….his sheep will follow him right off the cliff.

Baxter Greene on February 11, 2010 at 11:52 PM

I am very optimistic about — about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration.

If Obama and Biden truly believe that is was the fact that they were committed to total withdrawal in 2006 and declared that the surge would not work and was an unmitigated failure that really won the war in Iraq….
..then they should go to FT. Hood,Camp Lejeune,and Fort Benning to look our Iraqi/Afghanistan Veterans in the eyes and tell them that calling for surrender is what really won the Iraq war.

……..I am positive they will not agree.

Baxter Greene on February 12, 2010 at 12:05 AM

When will Reid claim the victory in Iraq was his doing as well? Without his “prompting” that the war was lost, Reid will claim he assisted by building the troops morale via inciting them to gain the victory over the terrorists.

As ridiculous as this sounds, this is the dems MO.

dthorny on February 12, 2010 at 1:35 AM

It is ironic that the only two “successes” that Obama-nation can claim are Bush’s success in Iraq and a Q and A with Republicans. (Nazi Public Radio told me the Anointed One-half won the health care debate.

And these are the only two “successes” they can claim after a year in which democrats hold congress and White House!

rrpjr on February 11, 2010 at 10:54 PM

I agree completely. My (rhetorical) question is, why is it that people are not afraid to say these things while the offending politicians are still alive, but as soon as one dies or ends up in a hospital, the narrative changes to “oh, he was such a great man, even though I disagreed with his politics.” I’m referring to the majority of comments on the Murtha and Clinton threads.

I’m not saying you’re one of those people. I’m just a little puzzled by that. I don’t take joy in peeing on graves, but I think we should be honest about what these people stand for (or DON’T stand for, as you point out) while they are in power.

Baxter Greene on February 11, 2010 at 11:52 PM

Basically this is complete and absolute capitulation on the Left. The followers will keep following. But there are true believers who think it was an absolute mistake to bring democracy to the mid-east. They didn’t think the culture could do democratic principles. And that Bush was just stirring up a hornet’s nest. To no good end.

But Biden is inspired by Bush’s policies and success. The true believers on the left are not going to be happy that Biden is inspired by Democracy. They think dictatorships and strong central power is the answer to every problem in the world today.

This is admitting defeat. Obama is going to lose much of the left. That will make his numbers go way down.

petunia on February 12, 2010 at 9:16 AM

Did anyone see Karl Rove talk about this on F&F this morning? He said that it was fine that the Obama administration get credit since they had continued the policy Pres. Bush put into place. The Bush administration has been beyond gracious and classy to the new folks in town. The difference is striking.

Baxter Greene on February 11, 2010 at 11:52 PM

You sir are absolutely correct. As upset as we all are about this, the media will now go into full spin mode to “explain” how “correct” Biden’s words were. Not only that, they will praise the “courage” it took for him to state something so obvious to anyone who isn’t a racist right wing teabagger republican.

It won’t hurt either Biden or Obama in the least, as most people will just accept the narrative that’s fed to them. Don’t think I’m right? I merely point, once again, to the election in 2008.
