Obama adjusts Iraq narrative, now
blames Bush for troop withdrawal

Washington Times (D.C), by Ben Wolfgang

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/12/2014 6:09:26 AM

The president who spent years touting the withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Iraq suddenly has had to distance himself from that action. At the White House on Saturday morning — less than 48 hours after authorizing airstrikes against Islamist militants and humanitarian air drops to save the lives of trapped Iraqi civilians — President Obama blamed his predecessor, George W. Bush, for the absence of American troops in Iraq and rejected the assertion that he could have left a small peacekeeping force in the war-torn nation. He uttered those after three years, and a successful re-election campaign, in which

Captain Blame lies again. Real leaders know how to lead. Pulling out of Iraq to be left to his beloved Mus-Bro was a mistake and any person with half a brain could have figured it out. IMPEACH.

This is a bald lie.
The US was unable to get a Status of Force Agreement (SOFA) with Iraq because Obama didn´t want one.
Maliki offered to sign the SOFA, but Obama insisted it be approved by the Iraqi Parliament to be legal-- knowing full well they would never approve it because they couldn´t ever agree on anything with all the factions infighting. This gave Obama the " cover" he needed to pull the troops and please his base.
Obama is a scummy liar

It is too easy to call him a liar because that is common knowledge by now.

What worries me is his magical thinking; he believes the things he lies about. There seems to be an amorphous puff of smoke between his brain and reality.

Apparently, it is contagious, too, because the media and Congressional Democrats are doing the same thing. Or worse, they are watching his demolition derby with stunned admiration.

Whatever Obama´s mental illness is, do the Democrats really want this looney-tune running the country? No one else does.

Of course Obama lies. But a more serious issue may be that he actually believes many of the "lies." If so, does the greater fault rest on the shoulders of those who strengthened his deceit and self deception by laying low and accepting his "lies," in one way or another?

I think I´ve had enough of President George W. Bush´s "turning the other cheek". Obama is nothing more than a bully who thinks he is cool because everyone around him tells him he is cool.

Just remember, a guy with a funny mustache rose to prominence in Germany because he also had a lot of people surrounding him who told him he was great and wonderful. That guy´s inflated ego led to more than six million deaths, because no one had the courage to punch him in the nose when he lied.

I mean no disrespect to George W. Bush, I enthusiastically voted for him twice; but sometimes the only way to stop a bully is to hit him where it hurts when he doesn´t expect it. Barry has become accustomed to making up excuses for his failures by blaming "tar baby" George W. Bush and has gotten away with it. George W. Bush, IMHO, needs to find a way to pull the rug out from under Barry by shining the light of Truth on every lie that comes out of Barry´s mouth.

"W" do it for the millions of us who respect and admire you and who voted for you. I, for one, would do it again without hesitation.

One of America’s most patriotic beers has defected. A Russian company has purchased Pabst Blue Ribbon, an iconic brew that’s been in production in the U.S. since 1844. New York aficionados of the beer — traditionally sold with a red-white-and-blue label — said “nyet” to the news when it was announced Friday. “I don’t think I will ever f-----g drink another Pabst Blue Ribbon in my entire life,” said construction worker Danny Kelly, 34. “That is an American company, it is an American beer for God knows how many years and now it’s going over to Russia.

Scott Pelley: Were you confident in that moment that pulling out was the right thing to do? Leon Panetta: No, I wasn’t. I really, I really thought that it was important for us to maintain a presence in Iraq.

The craft did not enter United States or Canadian airspace, but were located in an Air Defense Identification Zone that sits roughly 200 miles from the Alaskan coast, Smith said.

LINCOLN, Neb.— U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts expressed concern Friday about growing partisanship in the judicial confirmation process and a public perception that politics factor into the court´s rulings. Roberts told an audience at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Law that the partisan atmosphere in Washington would make it unlikely for justices such as Antonin Scalia, widely viewed as a conservative, or Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who is seen as liberal, to win confirmation today. He pointed to the most recent U.S. Senate confirmation of Justice Elena Kagan in 2010, which fell largely on party lines. Roberts said

It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

Congress is living in an "evidence-free zone" as it debates issues of equal pay and family-friendly work policies, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday. "Unfortunately, reality is not always the context in which these decisions are made. The Congress increasingly -- despite the best efforts of my friends and others -- is living in an evidence-free zone," she said during a roundtable discussion at the Center for American Progress focused on women´s issues. "What the reality is, in the lives of Americans is so far from the minds of too many who don´t place the highest priority" on

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said.

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria. (Video) Kerry responded: “If you’re more comfortable calling it a war against this enemy of Islam then please do so. We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

For crying out loud, will someone “pleeeeease” take a stand for Conservatism? Someone forwarded this article to me, “Why Are Republicans Suddenly Leaning Left?” The article cites numerous examples of the GOP obviously believing it must embrace at least lukewarm Liberalism while backing away from Conservatism to win elections.The article mentioned that Mitt Romney avoided saying “Republican” in an ad supporting Scott Brown’s Senate run. Romney said in the ad referring to Brown, “will buck his own party to do what’s right for New Hampshire.” Romney’s statement implies that Conservatism can be mean, but rest assured that Brown will push

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting

What was the Islamic State thinking? We know it is sophisticated in its use of modern media. But what was the logic of propagating to the world videos of its beheadings of two Americans (and subsequently a Briton) — sure to inflame public opinion? There are two possible explanations. One is that these terrorists are more depraved and less savvy than we think. They so glory in blood that they could not resist making an international spectacle of their savagery — after all, they proudly broadcast their massacre of Shiite prisoners — and did not quite fathom how such a
