Joe Biden Attempts to Rewrite History
Biden, the man who can never let a stupid thought from spewing out of his ignorant
mouth has done it again; this time with a national audience on Larry King's show.
Speaking about the Obama administration, Biden said, "I am very optimistic
about Iraq. I think it's going to be one of the great achievements of this administration."
US senators, both Biden and Obama voted
against funding the "Surge" in Iraq. Both said that we couldn't
win. Biden wanted to carve up Iraq into three different nations.
10, 2007, democrat US senator Obama said, "I am going to actively oppose
the president's proposal. I am not persuaded that 20,000 additional troops in
Iraq is going to solve the sectarian violence there. In fact, I think it will
do the reverse." Then on July 18, 2007, democrat US senator Obama said, "My
assessment is that the surge has not worked and we will not see a different report
eight weeks from now." Later on that year on November 7, Obama said, "Not
only have we not seen improvements, but we're actually worsening potentially a
In April of 2007, democrat US senator Harry
Reid said, "I believe myself that the secretary of state, secretary of
defense and, you have to make your own decisions as to what the president knows,
this war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the
extreme violence in Iraq yesterday."
In 2007, a stammering Obama said,
"I am not persuaded that - uh - 20,000 additional troops in Iraq is gonna
- uh - solve the sectarian violence there. In fact I think it will do the reverse.
I think it takes pressure off the Iraqis to arrive at the sort of political accommodation
that every observer believes is the ultimate solution - uh - to the problems we
After the Surge had been implemented, General Petraeus said
that we had "achieved tactical momentum." On September 9, 2007, Meet
the Press's Tim Russert asked Biden about General Petraeus' statement on the
Surge. Biden said, "Hes dead, flat wrong. The fact of the matter is
that there is -- that this -- uh -- this idea of the security gains we made have
had no impact on the underlying sectarian dynamic. None. None whatsoever. Can
anybody envision a central government made up of Sunni, Shi'a, and Kurds that's
going to gain the trust and respect of 27 million Iraqis? There have been some
tactical gains, but they have no ultimate bearing at this point on the prospect
of there being a political settlement in Iraq that would allow American troops
to come home without leaving chaos behind."
On May 31, 2008, while in full
campaign mode, Obama still could not admit what everyone knew to be true; the
Surge had worked. Candidate Obama said, "We don't need more spin about the
surge that was supposed to get the Iraqis to step up. We don't need more leaders
who just see what they want to see in Iraq. It's time to recognize where we are
Yes, folks, the same Joe Biden who opposed President George W
Bush's "Surge," the same Joe Biden who said it wouldn't work, the same
Joe Biden who joined with Barack Hussein Obama on the US senate floor declaring
we had been defeated in Iraq and the same Joe Biden that said the Surge was "absolute
wrong strategy," is now taking credit for President George W Bush's victory.
a matter of fact, Joe Biden claimed that he personally told then President George
W Bush in a private meeting at the White House, "Mr. President, this is your
Biden has about as much credibility as Al
Gore does with global warming.
