Obama Iraq speech, Obama truth, Obama takes credit Bush deserves

From Fox News.

“President Obama’s Oval Office address Tuesday evening was timed to mark the end of the U.S. combat mission in Iraq, though it also came two months before midterm congressional elections that could hinge on the state of the domestic economy — and Obama didn’t shy from drawing links and contrasts between the two.

Obama portrayed the end of the U.S. combat role in the Iraq as an opportunity to shift more focus to rebuilding the economy, which some economists say is increasingly in danger of falling back into a recession.

“We have spent a trillion dollars at war, often financed by borrowing from overseas. This, in turn, has short-changed investments in our own people, and contributed to record deficits,” he said, adding that too many middle-class families are working harder for less.

The troops in Iraq “have met every test that they faced,” Obama said. “Now, it is our turn. Now, it is our responsibility to honor them by coming together, all of us, and working to secure the dream that so many generations have fought for — the dream that a better life awaits anyone who is willing to work for it and reach for it”.

But Republicans refused to allow Obama to move on without noting the credit they say was due to President Bush for the troop surge in 2007 that ultimately saved a losing war effort. Although Obama had opposed the surge as a senator, Republican leaders said he should have given Bush kudos for its success.

John McCain, the Republican senator who ran against Obama in the 2008 presidential election, called it “a real lack of generosity of spirit.”

“What he should have said: ‘I opposed the surge. I was wrong. I made a mistake and George W. Bush deserves credit for doing something that was very unpopular at the time,'” McCain told Fox News. “Instead he had to say it’s well known that George Bush loves the troops.””

September 15, 2008.

“Obama was criticized by the Kenyan Government for his 2006 visit
to Kenya when he campaigned for his cousin Raila Odinga and
insulted the government. Now we learn that when Obama met with
Iraqi leaders “He asked why we were not prepared to delay an agreement until after the US elections and the formation of a new administration in Washington,“, stated Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari. The NY Post has a breaking news article on Obama’s meeting. Here are some exerpts from the article dated Monday, September 15, 2008:


“WHILE campaigning in public for a speedy withdrawal of US troops from Iraq, Sen. Barack Obama has tried in private to persuade Iraqi leaders to delay an agreement on a draw-down of the American military presence.”

“This Youtube video of the town hall meeting in Kingman, AZ on August 22, 2009, hosted by representative Trent Franks, is a must see. What is compelling about this video is the US Army veteran that served in Iraq speaking the truth about our presence there, media bias from the likes of CNN and the fact that the Iraqis voted for the first time. The Army veteran also lauded the US Constitution as the law of the land and went on to praise George Bush as a much better commander in chief than Barack Obama.

Representative Franks held another town hall meeting last night, August 25, 2009. If a video surfaces from that meeting, please forward the info.
“I don’t know this guy, but I want to say thanks. And to all those who serve in the the United States Armed Forces, thank you. You sign your lives away for the freedom of others. There are no greater heroes in this country.””

  1. US soldier who is a muslim refuses to deploy to Afghanistan, says he will not kill muslims.


  2. The Bigger story yesterday was the welcoming speech he gave at Ft. Bliss, Texas. You will hear and see nothing about this on MSM. If LOOKS CAN KILL then the USURPER is dead. This was the least enthusiastic audience I have ever seen him get. When he has no TOTUS(Teleprompter of the United States), he is a complete failure. Make sure this goes viral.

  3. I’m bringing this over because it will start your day with a smile.

    In case you haven’t seen this, it struck my funny bone.


  4. Have a great day. I’ll check in when I can. Zach

    bo doesn’t need to plant fake BC, just release it to msm and they will cover for him as usual.

    JJ | August 31, 2010 at 10:18 pm |
    Exactly! What we have to watch for is the presentation of some fraudulent version of the original birth records. And, as you say, the NBC issue must be addressed and proved. (It can’t be, if Sr. was his father) Did we ever see so much dancing around on the proverbial head of a pin?? For so long?!?
    So, fake BC can’t be introduced with , uh, ladies and gentlemen, it seems my real father was XXXXXXX XXXXXXXX???

    Would the narcissist even try it??

    Don’t be surprised if bo produces a BC that shows he had an American Citizen father. bo is not constrained by the truth. bo has no problem with telling as many lies as he needs to to cover up his crimes.

    That is why Patriots need to form Grand Juries and indict bo for all his crimes so that he can not escape prosecution for his crimes by simply producing a forged BC.

  6. Evidently the Army is considering discharging this ”muslim” and allowing him not to deploy. Compare that to the treatment of Col Lakin.
    Nasser Abdo: “They haven’t processed my packet at all. I even heard from my unity commander that they lost my military record. I can’t deploy with my unit to Afghanistan and participate in the war – I can’t both deploy and be a Muslim.”

    “Army sources Told Al-Jazeera TV that the Serviceman Nasser would Not be Sent to Afghanistan within the Next Few Days”
    Reporter: “The armed command at Fort Campbell issued a written statement in response to our questions regarding the case of serviceman Nasser Abdo, according to which the U.S. army recognizes that a soldier’s religious beliefs may change over time. It said, however, that discharge is an administrative procedure that takes six months.

    Anyone have a list of all the muslim attacks on American soil since Obama has taken office?
    I found this for 2009 –

    1. Binghamton, New York — May, 2009 — Taliban chief claims responsibility for N.Y. shooting massacre.

    2. Bronx, New York — May, 2009 — FBI arrest four in alleged plot to bomb Bronx synagogues, shoot down plane

    3. Little Rock, Arkansas — June, 2009 — Shooting at military recruiting center; 1 dead, 1 wounded; suspect is anti-military Muslim convert

    4. Fort Hood, Texas — November, 2009 — Fort Hood massacre: gunman linked to al-Qaeda as he awakes from coma.

    5. Detroit, Michigan – December, 2009 — Northwest 253 passengers tell of thwarted Detroit terror attack.

    Just a coincidence? I think not.

  18. I wonder about the guy with the Muslim name Omar in Conn. Was there
    something else to him killing 8 people at the Beer distrib.

  19. @free speech 7:20 am

    “US soldier who is a muslim refuses to deploy to Afghanistan, says he will not kill muslims.”

    I presume he has no problem killing Christians.

    If he was a Christian who said he couldn’t kill other Christians, there would be hell to pay for this guy like Lakin.

    But since he’s a muslim who says he won’t kill muslims, who would like to bet that he’ll be given “special consideration”.

  20. Men like Generals McInerney, Vallely and Col. represent what made our Country the greatest Nation on Earth.

    Just another example of how the muslim bo has hurt our military.

  22. I believe that there is a real necessity to get sworn depositions from the gang at Hawaii,and then enter it all into the official court records. Then the same court, send a group of analysts and data processing people to Hawaii DOH,and under court order have ALL existing Soetoro records extracted from the DOH, then compare the actual records with the depositions. I wonder how accurate the records would jibe.

  23. U.S. Private Sector Employment Decreased by 10,000 Jobs in August

  24. U.S. reverses stance on treaty to regulate arms trade!!!!!!

    (Reuters) – The United States reversed policy on Wednesday and said it would back launching talks on a treaty to regulate arms sales as long as the talks operated by consensus, a stance critics said gave every nation a veto.

    The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush’s administration, which had opposed such a treaty on the grounds that national controls were better.

    U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the United States would support the talks as long as the negotiating forum, the so-called Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty, “operates under the rules of consensus decision-making.”

    “Consensus is needed to ensure the widest possible support for the Treaty and to avoid loopholes in the Treaty that can be exploited by those wishing to export arms irresponsibly,” Clinton said in a written statement.

    While praising the Obama administration’s decision to overturn the Bush-era policy and to proceed with negotiations to regulate conventional arms sales, some groups criticized the U.S. insistence that decisions on the treaty be unanimous.

    Jews killed where Obama demanded removal of checkpoints


    Obama LOVES Jews.

    I know so, because he says so, and what he says I believe – – –

    And besides, if he really hated Jews, why would so many of Jewish Elite follow him?

    That means stories like this must be fabricated my Mossad to discredit the noble, impoverished, and victimized Palestinians.

    Yes – we’ve been warning of this.

    of over-reacting. Do you think we will
    get an apology now? “Wow, yikes,

  31. More KS media. Thank you for your forebearance. The plight of these guys and their families gets to me. I just gotta DO something.



  32. Tomorrow, we could ask all the KS media another question.
    Why are you colluding to set the lives of our military folks at grave risk by participating in the cover-up of an illegal, fraudulent CinC?

    Are the lives of those who protect and defend our country of such little value to you all?

    On behalf of our loved ones who willing risk their lives to serve us and our country, can you not, at the very LEAST, call for an open, truthful investigation of the issue of obama’s eligibility for the office of POTUS?

    Is that not YOUR duty to our country?

  37. RESTORING FEDERALISM – Repeal the Seventeen Amendment
    by Alan Snyder

    INTERESTING READ! “Let’s restore the provision in the ORIGINAL wording of the Constitution that allows state legislatures to choose state’s senators who serve in Congress”

    Aghast? Not so fast. The Seventeenth Amendment changed that in 1913 (when the progressive movement went in full swing) supposedly in order to stop the corruption in D.C. Read the article with an open mind.

    RESTORING FEDERALISM – Repeal the Seventeen Amendment


    The 17th is one of the worst. It was/is a critical and significant nail in the coffin of State’s Rights. Whether or not it supposedly served a purpose is irrelevant (“road to hell paved with good intentions”). If there really was a particular problem with a certain kind of corruption, this cure is far worse than the disease. It removes the essential counterbalance to mob rule. More than any other constitutional item, it undermines the essential notion of hierarchical representative government, in favor of “popular beauty contest”. Another classic example of Unintended Consequences.

  41. I just received this through email and of course you can’t see picture of the soldiers sending this message–sorry.

    Hey, everybody! I just wanted to send a quick update and give y’all the REAL story on what’s going on over here with the troop withdrawal. The picture is of my crew and I on a break during a mission. The guy to the far left is my gunner (Burks) and the guy in the middle is my driver (Mizell). They go with me on every mission and are great guys. The reason I’m sending this out is because I have had a few people ask if I left Iraq early because all of the combat troops are out of Iraq and I wanted to let everyone know the real deal. It’s kind of ridiculous how the news is saying that the last of the “combat” troops are out of Iraq because of Pres Osama (I mean Obama). He says that it was his campaign promise. Take our Brigade for example. We were originally called a HBCT (Heavy Brigade Combat Team). Well, since Obama said he would pull all of the “combat” troops out by Aug, all they did before we left was change our name from a HBCT to a AAB (Advise and Assist Brigade). We have the same personnel/equipment layout as before and are doing the same missions. The ONLY difference is that they changed our name from a HBCT to an AAB and that’s how he is getting away with saying that he has pulled all of the “combat” troops out. It is really ridiculous what he’s doing and he has ticked a lot of people off. And it’s funny how the media is buying all of it, too. So no the last combat troops are not out of Iraq. We are still here. There are other Brigades just like ours that are doing the same missions that are still over here. Sorry for going on about it but we are just sitting over here watching it and are like “You’ve got to be kidding me!” So anyway now you know the REAL story, so that’s why I’m not coming back early. You have to watch those liberals, they’re sneaky! Anyways I hope everyone is doing well and I’ll see you soon!

    (of course, most citizens know by now, if his mouth is moving, he is lying)
