President Obama’s message this morning on Iraq

Early this morning, the last of our troops left Iraq.

As we honor and reflect on the sacrifices that millions of men and women made for this war, I wanted to make sure you heard the news.

Bringing this war to a responsible end was a cause that sparked many Americans to get involved in the political process for the first time. Today’s outcome is a reminder that we all have a stake in our country’s future, and a say in the direction we choose.

Thank you.

Barack

That’s a pretty cool lie you’ve got going on there Mr. President. You sir can take all the credit you want for ending the war and the American people will probably actually buy it. I’m not. A lot of us are not. We know that this end date was actually set by president Bush, and that you tried to keep troops in Iraq longer. You would have kept them there for years longer if you could, but Iraq refused to grant immunity to the troops for war crimes. Your presidency has been a sham Mr. Obama. You don’t want to end wars, you don’t want to give us a single payer option, you don’t want to close Guantanamo, you don’t care about civil liberties. A lot of our narrow hopes in government rested on you, now we have nothing. No jobs, no allies, no hope.
