Obama: Iraq Troop Pullout Is Bush?s Fault

Obama: Iraq Troop Withdrawal Not My Responsibility

President Barack Obama now says predecessor George W. Bush and his administration were responsible for the 2011 withdrawal of American troops from Iraq, according to The Washington Times.

Despite couching the "full removal of U.S. forces from Iraq" as the White House?s having made good on a 2008 Obama promise to do just that ? it was a key talking point in his campaign speeches ? the president is now back-stepping, according to the Times.


"Now, however, with the terrorist force the Islamic State running roughshod through Iraq, capturing key territory, slaughtering Christians and promising to 'raise the flag of Allah at the White House,' Mr. Obama has begun to adjust the narrative," Ben Wolfgang of the Times wrote.



On Saturday, the president presented reporters with the newest iteration of his story, the Times said, when asked if he had any second thoughts about pulling all ground troops out of Iraq.



"What I just find interesting is the degree to which this issue keeps on coming up, as if this was my decision," Obama said, according to the newspaper. "Under the previous administration, we had turned over the country to a sovereign, democratically elected Iraqi government.



"So let?s just be clear: The reason that we did not have a follow-on force in Iraq was because the Iraqis ? a majority of Iraqis ? did not want U.S. troops there, and politically they could not pass the kind of laws that would be required to protect our troops in Iraq. So that entire analysis is bogus and is wrong. But it gets frequently peddled around here by folks who oftentimes are trying to defend previous policies that they themselves made."



The Weekly Standard?s John McCormack wrote that Obama made troop withdrawal a key platform issue in his 2012 re-election bid, quoting from a foreign policy debate between Obama and GOP nominee Mitt Romney. Obama "told the American people he didn?t support leaving any troops in Iraq," wrote McCormack.




"Every time you've offered an opinion, you've been wrong," Obama scolded Romney in that debate. "You said that we should still have troops in Iraq to this day."


The National Journal?s Ron Fournier took to Twitter to mock Obama?s malleable position on the troop withdrawal, first posting Obama?s words in 2011, and then Saturday?s statement in which he denied responsibility for the decision.



"A promise he kept, and he?s running from it?" Fournier tweeted, adding the hashtag #Ownit

Obama says Bush era fillibuster was "substance"

White House: Obama 'regrets' his filibuster of Supreme Court nominee


204


1







By Jordan Fabian - 02/17/16 02:14 PM EST
President Obama “regrets” filibustering the nomination of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito in 2006, his top spokesman said Wednesday, though he maintains that the Republican opposition to his effort to replace Justice Antonin Scalia is unprecedented.
“That is an approach the president regrets,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said.
Obama and the Democratic senators who joined him in filibustering Alito “should have been in the position where they were making a public case” against the merits of his nomination to the high court instead, Earnest said.“They shouldn’t have looked for a way to just throw sand in the gears of the process," he added.
As a senator from Illinois, Obama and 23 other senators attempted to stage a filibuster to block a confirmation vote on Alito, one of former President George W. Bush’s picks to serve on the bench. The filibuster bid failed and Alito was confirmed.
Conservatives have seized on Obama’s filibuster vote to accuse him of hypocrisy for criticizing Republicans for saying the next president, and not Obama, should nominate Scalia’s successor.
But Earnest said the GOP is going further than Obama did in pledging to not consider any nominee the president puts forward.
“These are two different things,” the spokesman said.
He argued that the Democrats’ 2006 filibuster of Alito was symbolic because he had the votes to be confirmed.
And he said Obama’s decision to filibuster was “based on substance” whereas the GOP’s blanket opposition to any Obama nominee is purely political. The president has yet to choose a nominee to replace Scalia.

WEST WING MINDMELD: President Obama's announcement yesterday that he'll leave 8,400 troops in "precarious" Afghanistan until the end of his term - an admission that he won't end the war - is recognized by the political aides as a failure to meet a 2008 campaign goal. It's a short list, including Gitmo, and Iraq. But, ZING: All three are Bush legacy issues - the fallout from decision-making in 2001, 2002 and 2003. The national security side of the house says this move was absolutely essential. The situation isn't stable. We broke it, we bought it.

The only "ring" is how desperate Democrats are to cover up their own lies and illegal activity.

Embarrassing... you crack me up. Cognitive dissonance... go look it up.

Our Views: Vacation or not, a hurting Louisiana needs you now, President Obama

Now that the flood waters ravaging Louisiana are receding, it's time for President Barack Obama to visit the most anguished state in the union.
Last week, as torrential rains brought death, destruction and misery to Louisiana, the president continued his vacation at Martha’s Vineyard, a playground for the posh and well-connected.
We’ve seen this story before in Louisiana, and we don’t deserve a sequel. In 2005, a fly-over by a vacationing President George W. Bush became a symbol of official neglect for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. The current president was among those making political hay out of Bush’s aloofness.

It Wasn’t Me: Obama Blames ISIS On Bush, Climate Change and the 2nd Amendment


Brittany M. Hughes | 22 hours ago




In his final address to the troops as commander-in-chief, President Obama took the opportunity to cap off his eight-year presidency by blaming President George W. Bush, climate change and the Second Amendment as reasons why ISIS nutballs seem to keep popping out of the ground like daisies. Because, of course, the rise of a radical Islamic terrorist group can’t possibly be the fault of Obama’s failed policies.
Obama took aim at Bush pretty early on in his speech, setting the former president up to take the fall for ISIS even before the group ever existed in its current form.
“And in shaping our response, we refused to repeat some of the mistakes of the 2003 invasion that have helped to give rise to the organization that became ISIL in the first place,” Obama said of his counterattacks against the group, which appear to have worked about as well as pouring napalm on a forest fire.
But lest the never-ending crutch that is the Bush administration fail to serve as an adequate excuse for why crazy Muslims are chopping people’s heads off right and left, Obama also pointed to a changing environment to explain radical terrorism.
“Sectarian conflicts rage. A changing climate is increasing competition for food and water,” Obama declared, basically likening violent zealots to a couple of lions fighting over a watering hole. Really, it’s not their fault.
Aside from a president who hasn’t been in office for nearly a decade and a whole mess of CO2 in the atmosphere, the right of the American people to keep and bear arms also holds some responsibility for why we can’t simply eliminate ISIS.
According to Obama, “We will not achieve the kind of clearly defined victory comparable to those that we won in previous wars against nations. We won’t have a scene of the Emperor of Japan and Douglas MacArthur in a surrender. And the reason we won’t have that is because technology makes it impossible to completely shield impressionable minds from violent ideologies. And somebody who is trying to kill and willing to be killed is dangerous, particularly when we live in a country where it’s very easy for that person to buy a very powerful weapon.”
Yes. Yes, gun rights -- this must be the problem! Because terrorists never think to, you know, attack a bunch of people with a knife.
In fact, just about everything under the sun can and should be blamed for the rise of ISIS other than Obama himself and, of course, the untouchable religion of Islam. Because terrorist groups that commit atrocities in the name of Mohammed and Allah are after all, nothing more than “false prophets [who] are peddling a vision of Islam that is irreconcilable with tolerance and modernity and basic science.”
At least, thus sayeth Obama.
But of course, if none of these excuses satisfy in justifying the past, one can always just point to future failures and make excuses for those, too.
“Now, to say that we’ve made progress is not to say that the job is done,” Obama said in his speech. “We know that a deadly threat persists. We know that in some form this violent extremism will be with us for years to come.”
